Last night Christopher and I got wrapped up in the Josh Bernstein show Digging for the Truth on the History Channel. Last night was all about Genghis Khaan. One of Christopher's new interests happens to be that time period, and especially the Moguls. It must come from him playing Medieval Two Total War on his lap top. It was a very well done show and Christopher has been spouting facts all day that he learned from the program. As a matter of fact, the most conversation he gave at lunch ( we ate with his Grammy Sue today) was about the fact that scientist think 8% of the population , about 32 million folks, have the same DNA tracing back to the Khaans... Well, as if that wasn't just falling into our lap with information... We received a batch of pictures from Aunt Carolyn today ( BTW a HUGE Birthday shout out to the north...I hope the snow on Erie let up enough for you to have dinner out)..... the pics were taken of her trip in Sept . to.......... you guessed it ...Inner Mongolia!!!!!! When she signed up for the trip she expected a much larger crowd then what met her..... a translator...and a driver... but it was the trip of a life time ( if you overlook the nasty ecoli virus she picked up)... I absolutely love the colorful building in the back and the fellow's shirt ( I know Aunt C, I should be impressed with you on the horse, but the fascination went away years ago after the pic of you on a camel in Egypt)...I so have to own a yurt and a shirt from inner Mongolia!!! This pic. launched Christopher into a long dialog on if Aunt C could should one of the bow and arrows off the back of a horse like the Moguls.... uh no Christopher... she's good.... but not that good!!! Now he's considering saving his money for a bow and arrow set for the back yard~sheesh~
So... learn what you can... travel vicariously... live life to the fullest.... don't drink the foreign water.....and have a fine day... all day long!!!!
