National Geographic and a team of scientists, engineers, and balloon pilots teamed up to successfully launch a 16′ X 16′ house 18′ tall with 300 colored weather balloons. Reaching an altitude of over 10,000 feet, the team set a World Record for the largest balloon cluster flight ever attempted. The flight lasted approximately one hour.

I have this shirt!!! And the original quote is: "The problem with defending the purity of the English language is that English is about as pure as a cribhouse whore. We don't just borrow words; on occasion, English has pursued other languages down alleyways to beat them unconscious and rifle their pockets for new vocabulary." James Nicoll :)

Great version of the King Arthur myths
The Women, Worth Reading, Marion Zimmer, Mists Of Avalon, Legends, Book Worth, King Arthur, Zimmer Bradley, Favorite Book
One of my All TIme Favorite Books! "There is no such thing as a true tale. Truth has many faces and the truth is like to the old road to Avalon; it depends on your own will, and your own thoughts, whither the road will take you." The Mists of Avalon, Marion Zimmer Bradley. Pinner writes: "The magical legend of King Arthur vividly retold through the eyes and lives of the women who wielded power from behind the throne - Guinevere, the Lady of the Lake, and Morgan Le Fay (Morgaine.)"
The Mists of Avalon, Marion Zimmer Bradley. My favorite fantasy novel. Fantasy isn't my favorite genre, but this is a book worth reading and re-reading. A story set during the Arthurian era, much of it told from a woman's perspective, about what life was like back in those days when Christianity was gaining steam. A wonderful story and well written.
