    the southwest .
    Over a thousand Native artists come to Santa Fe to display their works in a week long celebration of Native arts and crafts.

    " Museum Hill "
    Santa Fe is a celebrated mecca for museum lovers,but with more than a dozen museums scattered across the city it's hard to see them all in a day or two or 3 .
    that's why Museum Hill is the perfect place to begin.
    Situated on a picturesque hill east of down town, Museum Hill offers a stunning view.
    4 museums can be found up here .

    outside there is a labyrinth cafes and the fragrant pathways of the Santa Fe Botanical Garden , all on the same Hill.

    " Loretto Chapel "
    small pretty chapel build for a convent to bring nuns to educate young woman and girls.
    the chapel houses a incredible free standing spiral staircase build without nails and considered by some a miracle.

    " Santa Fe Opera "
    Located 7 miles noth of Santa Fe the open air opera house showcases world premiers and classic and contemporary works.
    Put on your best gown or dress casual for the long standing tradition of pre show tail gating , in the parking lot .
    For a more formal affair enjoy the Preview Buffet's.

    " El Rancho de Las Golandrinas "

    Setting a 50 foot marionette on fire rids Santa Fe of Doom and Gloom. The burning of Zozobra happens the Friday before Labor day and is quite a spectacle .

    " Ethyl the Whale "
    this sculpture of a life sized blue wale is made of hand- recycled plastic trash.

    " Cathedral Basilica of St Francis of Assisi "
    The cathedral is just east of the central Plaza and is one of Santa Fe's most striking landmarks .
    Construction was began in 1869 with the help of French stone masons and Italian stone cutters.
    Financial problems thwarted the completion .
    the building is missing the 2 160 foot steeples.

    " Haiku Pathway " A serene garden path lined with 36 Haiku stamped into clay stones.

    Now for some interesting food places:

    " Kakawa Chocolate House "
    This place sells and makes exquisite hand made Chocolates, rich drinking chocolate elixiers and home made ice cream
    All you chocolate lovers just HAVE to go to this place.

    " Jamba Café "

    ok enough for today , I could write 10 pages just about this amazing city, but I need at least 3 hours of sleep .

    Breanna drunkenly stumbles through the bus, the internet cord wraps around her leg and is pulled from the socket. 1000110011, ones and zeroes fade to nothingness as the bus's polygons unbind from their joints and dissolve away into the maya file from whence they were created. Autosave was turned off, and the files are irretrievable. The screen is blank, the characters no more. The End.

    We have back ups ! And our backups have backups ! Aoogah !

    And those backups have back ups ! Ding ! All is fine !

  4. Breanna Well-Known Member

    Than God Gero, I thought I was a goner there for a minute. Ttobey is always trying this tricky stuff trying to kill us off. I am glad we out smart him every time.
  5. ttobey Makes the Monsters Move

    That's weird, I changed the radio station and Safety Dance started playing. Cyrrena just Safety Danced right out the front door not knowing the bus was hovering over Hawaii’s Kilauea volcano and she plummeted into the lava. I guess that was an Unsafety Dance.
  6. ttobey Makes the Monsters Move

    Wait What? Breanna pushed her? Not nice. I think you are all going stir crazy.
  7. Breanna Well-Known Member

    I would never ever push Cyrrena into a volcano. I think you've been dreaming and need to wake up. I know you are having a lot of fun on this road trip with all the pretty hats and stuff we keep getting. But maybe you should stay out of the hot tubs for a while I think they are making you drowsy, because you just keep falling asleep and having the wildest dreams. Maybe one of the new hats is too tight and pinching off the blood flow to your brain.
  8. Schmetterling Well-Known Member

    or the wine , I should not have send him those 30 cases of fruit wine.
  9. Breanna Well-Known Member

    It could be a little bit of everything combined. He is definitely delusional.

  13. Schmetterling Well-Known Member

    hmm wonder how that bus supposedly ended up over Hawaii in the first place when all of us where out exploring Roswell.
    We only use the bus on the road now when we want to see the scenery, and when we don't go far to the next place.
    Thanks for catching ttobey , Geo

    I will lay all the rumors to rest!! I apologize for my absence yesterday.

    Monday night my older daughter and her boyfriend were in involved in an auto accident at about 9:50 pm PDT, child and boyfriend alright, H3 totaled, so I had The Mom duty until after 3 am attempting to instruct them on what they should be doing, ie call insurance company, do you want your own tow driver or have the City let the tow company they called tow it off, the insurance company will send an adjuster and tow company to the scene, you need to call the insurance company. I had to return them to their apartment along with all their shopping which is why they were out to get in the accident that involved 3 vehicles, possibly 4. Told them take everything you want out of that H3 because your insurance is going to total it and you are not going to want to have to run to who knows where to clean it out. But you know how kids are, they do not listen and the H3 is the boyfriends and he is from Georgia, moved here to be with her so I get to be his The Mom too. The Mom duties continued through late afternoon when I had to take them to pick up the rental the insurance set up for them, when they finally contacted the insurance and were told, you should have contacted us from the scene (1 point for The Mom), then they had to go to the tow yard and get all the stuff out of the H3 as it was being totaled by insurance (2 points for The Mom).

    Even though for the most part the did not listen to any instructional information, I am just happy neither of them were injured and maybe they have learned something by dealing with the insurance company themselves.

    The other thing I had going on, was just as difficult if not more so. One of my closest and dearest friends from AB, a legend in the Roleplaying community had a stroke last week at the age of 55. The doctors gave him a very slim chance for survival. He went into ICU/Critical Care and they put a DNR on him and yesterday the life support was turned off. He passed from our world at approximately 2:17 pm PDT per his daughter.

    Live large and soar high my friend, you are loved by all and will be greatly missed. I love you and miss you dearly. You will never be forgotten. He is now a large star in our Norrathian Sky and my next campaign with be to get a monument or something to him on AB.
