Buzzy, I joined the new Jewish Heritage Travel Group. thanks for setting that up.

 

A few weeks ago I wrote about the bunker -- Congress' fallout shelter -- at The Greenbrier. Now NBC has covered this same story, and they really got it right:

More "history, heritage and archaeology" will be featured in the new Jewish Heritage Travel Group. Please join and contribute, especially when there is overlap between the two groups.

Aztec, Toltec, and Totonac -- to name but a few of the ancient Mesoamerican cultures.

My guess is you saw a lot of Maya art and artifacts. Olmec, too?

Just back from Mexico, where I discovered some of the best "unknown" archaeological museums ever: the anthropology museum of Jalapa, and the Museo Rafael Coronel in Zacatecas. So many UNESCO World Heritage sites in that country!

Interested and qualified parties must be willing to sign an NDA since our marketing plans and applications are far-advanced and ready to apply to the market.

In response to William and David, these are the reasons that I started my tour company. So many don't know this history or its people. As well as the tours, I also am available to do lectures. I am a descendant of a Freedom Seeker who came from Kentucky in 1851 settling in Fort Erie, Ontario, Canada where I was raised. It is a wonderful and interesting history that I love to share with everyone. Hope I have a chance to share it with many of you

"Hawass gets to keep his hat as long as the ratings are good on the History and Discovery Channels!!" That's right, William. He's no longer an archaeologist, but a self-promoter.
