Boston Museum Of Science

During my recent trip back to Boston I visited the Boston Museum Of Science, where my uncle is a volunteer. I haven't been there for a VERY long time. I was impressed all over again. Ripley's Meets the Petting Zoo!
When I was very young I saw an exhibit at the BOS that featured the use of a human toe as a replacement thumb (click to see thumb/toe warning not for faint of stomach). I think it semi-traumatized AND extremely intrigued me! I always loved using that special fact through out the years when a person's appendages were in jeopardy. Below is the baby hand deformity from the exhibit which is still there! I was beginning to think I dreamed the whole thing up!

  1. I could choose to fit the canvas print that I was ordering from wahooart.com to the pattern and color of the wallpaper in my living room. I could search for artwork by subject matter and even predominant colors. Then I customized the frame online because the site allowed me to match the frame style with different wallpapers, one of which looked like ours.
    So now have this canvas print by Pierre Bonnard, http://en.wahooart.com/A55A04/w.nsf/OPRA/BRUE-8LT4PD
