I love spy movies. Makes want to become a spy too. If only such spies really existed.

Going to be at 2am is too late during school! I shouldn't allow it!

I get that feeling with fantasy films. Makes me wish I was in their world.

Reading novels is a far better way of escaping reality, though.

I really struggle to sleep. I've always had the problem, don't know how to fix it, though.

Okay, time to move.

In case I am not able to log on in the next week, take care all! Hopefully there will be some Internet, though.

Thanks for sharing, stary. But I see what you're doing , I still can't visit you yet. But I will one day And now I can even drive the car and you can rest

Also, I loved the black and white, it really does give it a whole other perspective.
The photograph I have is in black and white and is nearly actual size. I like it.

All the ancient art work is out in the open. Sometimes they are vandalized and that is sad The petroglyphs in your country don't have security do they?

I've had Europeans express a great deal of concern about the rock art. Also about cows grazing. "Where do they go at night?"

Forgot to say that the site is about 10 miles from Moab.

Sam Mendes is very likely my favorite director, so I had high expectations. He did not let me down, although it made me realize a few things about us (Sam and I).

Couldn't your mother wake you up?
Craig doesn't have that suave sophisticated look I think Bond should have.

Here is a sample of the vandalization. This panel has been restored. I saw it before the restoration and one couple had left their names AND address in huge letters. Incredible. The second picture is after the restoration, but not a good picture.

The third picture is of a panel just across the bridge from Moab. Some people went up with cleaning products and scrubbed off as much of the painting as they could.

This site has a video of part of the panel. It's more extensive than the video shows.

Part of the attraction of Buckhorn Draw is the beauty of the sandstone. Also it is close to the San Rafael river and has shady areas.

This is a nice little travelog that gives you a slice of the San Rafael Swell and also the high country nearby.

star's talk about vandalization of historic stuff reminds me of the news about a house designed by Frank Llyod Wright for his son in Phoenix. It's a long way from a historic building but in Phoenix, a house built in 1952 is pretty old and if it is not preserved today, it will never be historic, right?

Here is a link to NY times

The ones in Portugal SURE are protected!! You can't access them unless you go through a ticket office, and I am not sure about this part, but you might even have to go WITH a guide to visit them.

Lovely house, Lee.

They should have something like Nature Conservancy for buildings. Architecture conservancy or something. Not sure you could get people to donate tho. There's a ranch south of here at the entrance to the Needles section of Canyonlands, N.P. that the Nature conservancy bought. The owners divorced and so the ranch was on the block. Finally, they made a deal with Nature Conservancy and now the wife (who has run the ranch for years) will get to live out her life there and operate it as a ranch. One of her sons helps with the operation. I'm not sure what happens to him at her death.

Raquel, is that Micaela's house?

I could live there. It's got a piano and a great view -- If it's got a wi-fi connection, I'm good to go.

I see there is a new poster who joined on October 4.

Dr. Mug. His first post was starting a thread. He's started 4 threads at least.
