Possible first European pyramid found

Bosnian Archeologist Semir Osmanagic who lives and works here in the states has discovered evidence of a pyramid in the hills of Bosnia.

Located near the city of Visoko, just north of Sarajevo, the pyramid could be nearly 12,000 years old.

The pyramid is 100 metres high and there is evidence that it contains rooms and a monumental causeway … the plateau is build of stone blocks, which indicates the presence at the time of a highly developed civilisation, … Archeological excavations near the surface have uncovered a part of a wall and fragments of steps.

Leo Laporte info I didn’t know

So, I’m cruising around the Leo Laporte Empire last night and happen upon a link to his resume. Typical mumbo jumbo for the most part. Until you get to the education part.

Education Chinese History major, Yale University, 1973-76

First thing I notice? The Chinese History Major part. Wow! I guess I got the wrong degree for a job like Leo’s. Silly me went with the CS degree. Jake over at Jake’s Corner and SGB must have known something that I didn’t, as he has a degree in History and Political Science.(Jake: You’ll have to correct me if I’m wrong.)

Second thing I notice? YALE! I knew Leo was a smart cookie, but holy cow. Nope, Jake doesn’t have a Yale degree. (Neither do I if you were wondering)

Non-smoking 1 week and change

Sunday was one week, so I’m up to one week and two days now. I did break down and have one cigarette on Monday evening. Frankly, I’m kinda glad that I did as it did not taste anything like I remember them tasting. I got no effects from it except for a sticky mouth and a nasty taste.

It still is tough to ignore my cravings, but it has gotten easier than it was and continues to do so.

Here’s to another week, and another, and another, then it’s on to counting months and eventually years.
