Something Inside Me

When most people see nesting dolls they immediately think of the very popular Russian dolls that were first made by artist Sergei Maliutin, but in fact his creation was inspired by an older set of Japanese dolls. Apparently Sergei found a set of wooden dolls representing Shichi-fuku-jin, the Seven Japanese Gods of Fortune, and returned home to design a Russian equivalent which is comprised of 8 dolls and the inner most doll is always a baby.

Tickets Please

A few weeks ago we took the kids to Storyland in New Hamspshire. This was the second trip to meccca for Willow and she had a blast. I learned a good lesson that day too. Storyland does not sell any type of pain reliever at all. No aspirin. No tylenol. Nothing. I know this because the girl with the blue stained tongue and mouth who was selling blueberry slushies told me so. It was a long day.

Vienna Sun

Vienna possesses a lively and vast array of cultural attractions. Whether classical or experimental theatre, film or dance festivals, opera or operetta, or exhibitions and concerts – no matter when you come and how long you stay, there is sure to be something exciting for you to discover. If your tastes are not quite so culturally refined, then visit one of Vienna’s famous coffee houses but above all, you must wear your shades.

Tiny Plane

This slide was actually very small and not 35mm. I’m guessing from an old Minox or similar ‘spy style’ camera.
