Pix of the Day: History Lies Buried in the Soil

Tony Sainsbury took a break from his north west of England home, where he runs EyeOnTheLakes.com web site, to visit the south coast English county of West Sussex. The name of the place in the picture is Cissbury Ring, which had us off searching the web for more information. Our search led us to David Staveley, whose second name is by happenstance derived from the eponymous place in Tony's home territory, who has a detailed Cissbury Ring page in his Sussex Archaeology & Folklore section. A very interesting and well done web site, and worthy of an extended visit if this sort of thing interests you. Ditchling Beacon had a familiar ring to its name: we guessed that we had heard it as a high point on the annual London to Brighton bicycle ride. The blessing, and the curse, of the web is that it just goes on forever!

Caricature Zone
American actor (1955- ). We think we should confess here that we had never heard of this man. His professional first name was used in high school as a childlike diminutive of his real first name, but it has stuck. He has played a villain, a messiah, a heroic soldier, an FBI agent, a boxer, a cop, a pilot, a lascivious bandit badly in need of a dentist, and has been led astray by kinky legal client Madonna. We wonder how much he paid them to let him play that last part. There is an fan page by Brandy, which has several picture galleries, plus some film clips and trailers. This mini bio uses extracts from the IMDB (Internet Movie Database).


On This Day in 2002: Taos Pow-Wow Tuesday 23 July 2002

Taos Pow-Wow © John H. FarrOver at FotoFeed.com there is a series of pictures of the Taos Pow-Wow taken by John H. Farr. The Native American life of the pueblos (considered to be the oldest continuously inhabited communities in the United States) is the basis of the festival, but there are other facets of New Mexico life to be seen. The event attracts entries from associated cultures and other areas of North America. John did a short article on the 2002 pow-wow, which includes a photo tour.

If you missed the pow-wow but are interested in native American culture then try IndianVillage.com who have a calendar of events that seems to be well maintained. If you are interested in visiting the Taos area to enjoy its many attractions TaosVacationGuide.com have lots of information, including a map showing the local hot spots in the 'Enchanted Circle'.
