Blogging From The In-Laws, 2005 Edition (Day 1)

This entry is part 1 of 11 in the series Blogging From The In-Laws, 2005 Edition

Little-known Egyptology/Travel Fact of the Day: Archaeologists have long thought that Egyptian mummies were ancient Egyptians’ attempts at conveying their (rich) loved ones into the afterlife. After several intensive hours of study, I have come to the conclusion that several hundred years’ worth of archaeologists and Egyptologists were, in fact, wrong. Mummies were not dead […]

My wife’s grandmother, although blessed with a high speed cable connection, has little need for […]
