For centuries, the Celtic Knot has been a symbol of eternity - the eternity of life, the eternity of nature and the eternity of love. In today’s world, this ancient symbol is still as apt, desirable and graceful as it was when the Ancient Celts first drew it so many centuries ago.

The never-ending, never-beginning knot provides an evocative reminder of life's interconnectedness, a symbol which is as strong today as it was when it first adorned the pendants and tapestries of an ancient people. The Love Knot is all about tradition with a twist; a sparkling new style based on an ancient design. Eternal love that encircles the soul with the never-ending embrace of love captured in a creation of gold and silver, diamonds and precious gems.

The Love Knot represents a stylized heart formed from a knot that hugs each piece, providing a stylish new twist on two classic symbols: the heart and the Celtic knot. From husband-to-wife, mother-to-daughter, grandmother-to-granddaughter; whatever the celebration, occasion or simply a ‘just because I love you’ gift, the Love Knot cherishes true love that has no beginning and no ending.

Taking Care of Your Love Knot Jewelry

Fine jewelry expresses love, permanence, individuality and style more eloquently than words could ever do. If treated carefully, the Love Knot jewelry item you purchase today could last a lifetime and might even be handed down to future generations. Make your Love Knot jewelry sparkle, shine and last a lifetime with these important tips:

Firstly, gold is lasting and durable but can get scratched or dented if treated roughly. This is particularly true of items worn on the hands, such as rings or bracelets that are prone to repeated contact. So remove these pieces before any type of strenuous activity.

Secondly, beware of chemicals. Gold's worst enemy is chlorine. Repeated exposure can weaken gold's structure, eventually leading to breakage. So keep your gold jewelry away from chlorinated cleaning products and out of swimming pools and jacuzzis.
On a related note, acids, abrasives and other harsh chemicals found in some common household cleaning solutions can weaken your jewelry or damage its tanish, so it's best to cover up rings and bracelets with rubber gloves while doing heavy-duty cleaning. Or better yet, remove these pieces altogether.

Gold can lose its luster over time if repeatedly exposed to dust, moisture, perspiration and makeup, so be sure to clean your jewelry regularly. You can use a cleaning solution of sudsy, lukewarm water, or bring it to your local jeweler and have it professionally steam-cleaned. After cleaning and rinsing, always dry and polish jewelry with a chamois or a soft cloth to avoid scratches and to bring out its shine.

Proper storage is as important as cleaning. Protect your jewelry by storing it safely in a jewelry box or keeping it wrapped in a soft cloth when not being worn. Furthermore, keeping pieces stored separately will prevent them from getting tangled or scratching one another.

Ancient city @ Rome, Itlay 2011

Ancient Rome was a civilization that grew out of a small agricultural community founded on the Italian Peninsula as early as the 10th century BC. Located along the Mediterranean Sea and centered on the city of Rome, it expanded to one of the largest empires in the ancient world.

In its centuries of existence, Roman civilization shifted from a monarchy to an oligarchic republic to an increasingly autocratic empire. It came to dominate South-Western Europe, South-Eastern Europe and the Balkans, and the Mediterranean region through conquest and assimilation.

Plagued by internal instability and attacked by various migrating peoples, the western part of the empire, including Italy, Hispania, Gaul, Britannia and Africa broke up into independent kingdoms in the 5th century AD. This splintering is the landmark historians use to divide the ancient period from the medieval era and the "Dark Ages".

The Eastern Roman Empire survived this crisis and was governed from Constantinople after Diocletian divided the Empire in 286 AD. It comprised Greece, the Balkans, Asia Minor, Syria and Egypt. Despite the later loss of Syria and Egypt to the Arab-Islamic Empire, the Eastern Roman Empire continued for another millennium, until its remains were finally annexed by the emerging Turkish Ottoman Empire. This eastern, Christian, medieval stage of the empire is usually called the Byzantine Empire by historians.
Roman civilization is often grouped into "classical antiquity" with ancient Greece, a civilization that, along with the Etruscan civilization and the many other civilizations they conquered and assimilated, inspired much of the culture of ancient Rome. Ancient Rome contributed greatly to government, law, war, art, literature, architecture, technology, religion, and language in the Western world, and its history continues to have a major influence on the world today.

Asia or Africa?

Asia or Africa?

Back to my Madagascar series, I am going to show some of the differtent landscapes. Madagascar was ones connected to Africa and Asia. The landscape still shows the effects of the ancient red soils of Africa and the rice fields of Asia.

The rich habitat diversity and large number of endemic animals sets Madagascar apart. It is the kindom of lemurs and chameleons and it is every nature photographer's dream.

You will find al different kinds of lemurs (half apes) and lots of endemic spieces of animals, flowers and plants in Madagascar.

About 165 milion years ago, Madagascar split from Africa and drifted some 400 km off the east coast, separated by the Mozambique Channel. On the Island you will find a mix of Africans, Asians and Arabians. This racial mix is visible in the Malagassy's faces.

The island is dominated by highlands and rainforest. The highly weathered lateritic soil gives Madagascar the name " Red Island"

Madagascar's fauna and flora have evolved partly because it is an isolated island, but also because it originated as a continental fragment. 70 to 80% of the flora and fauna are endemic, meaning you will not find this anywhere else in the world. The lemur species and chameleons are the most famous.

Take a journey through my Madagascar set to discover some of Madagascars special nature and wildlife.

Church of Bodie

Church of Bodie

Bodie, California, is a ghost town on the eastern slope of the Sierra Nevada mountain range in Mono County, California, United States, about 75 miles (120 km) southeast of Lake Tahoe. It is located at 38°12?42?N, 119°00?46?W, at an elevation of 8369 feet (2550 m).


Gold was discovered in 1859 by prospector W. S. Bodey (also spelled Body), after whom the town was named. Bodey died in November after making a supply trip to Monoville and perishing in a blizzard.

In 1876, the Standard Company discovered a profitable deposit of gold, which transformed Bodie from an isolated mining camp of few prospectors and company employees to a Wild West boomtown. Rich discoveries in the adjacent Bodie Mine during 1878 attracted even more hopeful people. By 1880 Bodie boasted a population of nearly 10,000.

As a bustling gold mining center, Bodie was famous for its lawlessness. At its peak it had 60 saloons. Murders, barroom brawls, and stagecoach holdups were regular occurrences. Legend has it that a little girl, upon finding out that her family was moving there, prayed one night, "Goodbye God, we are going to Bodie." But a local editor claimed she had really prayed, "Good. By God we are going to Bodie."

Gold bullion from the town's nine stamp mills was shipped to Carson City, Nevada by way of Aurora, Wellington, and Gardnerville. Most shipments were accompanied by an armed guard. Once the bullion reached Carson City, it was delivered to the mint or sent by rail to the mint in San Francisco.

A first in electrical power

In 1893 the Standard Company built its own hydroelectric plant, located approximately 13 miles away on Green Creek, above Bridgeport, California. The plant developed a maximum of 130 horsepower and 6,600 volts alternating current to power the company's 20-stamp mill. This pioneering installation is marked as one of the first transmissions of electricity over long-distance.

Interesting points about town

Bodie had its own Chinatown, which had several hundred Chinese residents at one point, and even included a Taoist temple. Chinese workers earned their incomes mainly from selling vegetables, operating laundries, and cutting, hauling, and selling firewood.

Bodie has a cemetery on the outskirts of town and a nearby mortuary which is the only building in the town built of red brick three courses thick, most likely for insulation from the intense summer heat which would make undertaking a malodorous job.

As with most remote mining towns, Bodie had a popular, though clandestinely important red light district on the north end of town. From this is told the unsubstantiated story of Rosa May, a prostitute who, in the style of Florence Nightingale, came to the aid of the town menfolk when a serious epidemic struck the town at the height of its boom. She was attributed to giving life-saving care to many, but was denied burial within the gates of the town cemetery, remaining a social outcast even to her death.

In town's center stands the Miners Union Hall, a general meeting place for residents. It now serves as a quasi town museum. As a State Park, the ranger station is located in one of the original homes on Green Street.


Summers in Bodie were hot, but in winter, temperatures often plummeted well below 0°F, and winds could sweep across the valley at close to 100 miles per hour. These days nights stay plenty cold even throughout the summer months, and to this day the ghost town most often holds the nightly records for coldest temperature in the nation. The harsh weather is due to a particularly bad combination of a very high altitude, (8,400 ft.), and a very exposed plateau, with little in the way of a natural surrounding wall to protect the long, flat piece land from the elements. Plenty of firewood was needed to keep residents warm through the long winters, possibly related to the fact that there are very few trees today in the area. Many inadequately prepared residents perished during the winter of 1878–1879, which was particularly harsh.

Authentic ghost town

Though greatly reduced in prominence, Bodie held a permanent residency through most of the 20th century. Bodie is now the Wild West's most authentic, intact ghost town, even after a fire ravaged much of the downtown business district in 1932. The town was designated a National Historic Landmark in 1961, and in 1962 it became Bodie State Historic Park

Today, Bodie is preserved in a state of arrested decay. Only a small part of the town survives. Visitors can walk the deserted streets of a town that once had a population of over 10,000 people. Interiors remain as they were left and stocked with goods. Bodie is open all year, but the most comfortable time to visit is during the summer months.

Today we went back to Bullion Canyon where the waterfall I recently hiked to is. This was a booming mining town back in the day. We explored the area and then headed to a nearby reservoir (see photos in comments.) At the end of the day I had 433 photos! Yikes! That was partly to due with having fun with slow shutter speeds hand held. I used the machine gun technique to take a burst of 3 or 4 images when I tried to get 1 second water shots or 1/8th of a second cabin shots hand held.

I really love this area! I suggest if anyone with an RV is planning a trip to Bryce Canyon, they should stay in Marysvale, Utah. It's not too awful far from Bryce and less crowded. Please note I did not say less of a tourist trap. ;0)

My husband has taken his last week of vacation. I might not be commenting as much but I'll be viewing. Hope that's OK. :0D

Forgot to tell you what you're looking at! Here's what the sign says:

"In the mines and mills of the canyon, piped water was converted to steam in boilers like the one before you. Steam was used to power pistons which ran the equipment necessary to ventilate mines and move, crush, separate and mill gold ore. This boiler, weighing more than 4 tons, was pulled by a team of 4 to 6 horses."

Map of proposed development in Virginia Beach

Map of proposed development in Virginia Beach

Like it or not, all agree $4 billion development proposal is huge

© December 22, 2006

VIRGINIA BEACH - A $4 billion proposal to build skyscrapers, hotels and condos at the Oceanfront and a massive golf resort near City Hall has left many business leaders and residents stunned.

The plan by a South Korean company includes more than 3,800 condominiums, 1,500 hotel rooms and seven towers soaring up to 40 stories high.

"This is like Hampton Roads attracting a major league sports franchise," said James Koch, an Old Dominion University economist. "Economically speaking, it might be a great thing or may not amount to anything at all."

The size of the proposal by Sun Rise Development Co. Ltd., which covers more than 64 acres at the former Dome site, Rudee Loop, the Convention Center and the Tournament Players Club of Virginia Beach, surpasses any proposal the city has seen in years.

"The scale of it is enormous," said Deborah Stearns, managing director of the Norfolk office of GVA Advantis real estate company.

Virginia Beach's Town Center had an overall master plan but "unfolded one piece at a time," Stearns said. The Korean proposal includes many more pieces, all unveiled in a single swoop.

"I can't recall another announcement that would have that many square feet and that many developments proposed at one time," she said.

Bruce Thompson, chief executive officer of Gold Key/PHR Hotels and Resorts, said Virginia Beach may be ripe for such a project, and he said few properties are as attractive as the ones Sun Rise has selected.

It was only a matter of time before a major national or international company "came to Virginia Beach and recognized what we've known all along," Thompson said. "This is the best beach on the East Coast."

But Thompson also raised his eyebrows at the cost of the proposal.

"We have a half-billion dollars in real estate at the Oceanfront," he said. "I know how long it took us to develop a half a billion."

Thompson said he was surprised that a project this big materialized without local property owners and developers knowing about it.

Don Maxwell, the city's economic development director, said he is confident in the company's ability to deliver on its proposals, even though little is known about Sun Rise.

Still, the cost of the project to taxpayers is unknown.

The city probably would have to build roads and hire more police for the Oceanfront, Koch said. The city also risks losing its largest employer - the Navy - in the process, he added.

The Navy is unlikely to support towering buildings right under the paths of jets from Oceana Naval Air Station.

The federal government already has threatened to move jets out of Virginia Beach because of development near Oceana, and other states would be happy to host them, said U.S. Rep. Thelma Drake, who represents Virginia Beach.

"I don't think this plan meets the Navy's needs at all," Drake said. "And the important thing is that when the Navy says this doesn't work, they take it very seriously."

Drake said city officials should consider all development proposals but must include the Navy in discussions from the start. City officials told Oceana leaders about the Sun Rise plans Wednesday, after it was made public.

Ellis Hinnant-Will, an Oceanfront resident and civic leader, worries that the plan would transform Virginia Beach into a city in the style of Fort Lauderdale, Fla., with its tall hotels.

"I really can't believe that we would really consider something like this," Hinnant-Will said.

Still, Sun Rise's proposal could draw visitors who had never considered Virginia Beach before, said Brad Garner, who has studied Virginia Beach as vice president of Smith Travel Research, a tourism consulting company in Hendersonville, Tenn.

While Virginia Beach has more demand for hotel space than supply, Sun Rise would have to tap entirely new markets for visitors - particularly if it sought travelers from Asia - to fill the rooms it has proposed, he said.

The company would have to create a draw akin to Walt Disney World, Garner said.

"They've got to bring the entertainment component with it. They've got to bring the food and beverage component with it," he said. "They've got to bring the whole package with them."

The city also needs more condominiums along the Oceanfront, said Councilwoman Rosemary Wilson, a real estate agent who handles property at the resort.

"People want to be at the Oceanfront and want to be on the Boardwalk," Wilson said. "It's all about the view."

Still, Wilson said, Sun Rise's proposal needs more review. "Is it the right fit?" she asked. "We don't know."

Gold Dredge

Gold Dredge

The Dredge, a replica of one of the largest & longest operating gold mining dredges in Breckenridge, Colorado.

Breckenridge is a town in Summit County, Colorado, United States. As of the 2000 census the town had a total population of 2,408. It is the county seat of Summit County. Breckenridge is also a popular ski resort during the winter months, servicing multi-difficulty ski slopes on the Rocky Mountains. Summer in Breckenridge attracts outdoor enthusiasts with hiking trails, wildflowers, fly-fishing in the Blue River, mountain biking, and nearby Lake Dillon for boating.

The town of Breckenridge was formally created in November 1859 by General George E. Spencer. Spencer chose the name Breckinridge after the United States' Vice President of the time, John C. Breckinridge of Kentucky in the hopes of flattering the government and gaining a post office. Spencer succeeded in his plan and a post office was built in Breckinridge, it was the first post office between the Continental Divide and Salt Lake City, UT.

Prospectors entered what is now Summitt County during the Pikes Peak Gold Rush of 1859, soon after the placer gold discoveries farther east at Idaho Springs. Breckinridge was founded to serve the miners working rich placer gold deposits discovered along Georgia Gulch. Placer gold mining was soon joined by hard rock mining, as prospectors followed the gold to its source veins in the hills. Gold in some upper gravel benches north of the Blue River was recovered by hydraulic mining. Gold production decreased in the late 1800's, but revived in 1908 by gold dredging operations along the Blue River and Swan River. The Breckenridge mining district is credited with production of about one million troy ounces (about 31,000 kilograms) of gold.

The gold mines around Breckenridge are all shut down, although some are open to tourist visits. The characteristic gravel ridges left by the gold dredges can still be seen along the Blue River and Snake River, and the remains of a dredge are still afloat in a pond off the Swan River. (Wikipedia)
