Support DIY & Small Businesses this Holiday Season! Just think of the huge difference we could make with the economy and for so many struggling lives if we all bought our holiday gifts from those running small independent businesses instead of multinational companies. Thanks again to everyone that’s helped my success with BoneLust since I became unemployed back in 2008. It has been a long hard road & I couldn’t have done it without your support! ♥ http://www.etsy.com/shop/bonelust (at http://bonelust.etsy.com)
Avoiding stores the day after Thanksgiving since 2005. (Prior to that I was working in them.)
Emily, were you aware of this shop?
That is the happiest looking creature I have ever seen.
The Neolithic settlement Skara Brae, Scotland, dubbed the “Scottish Pompeii” due to its excellent preservation. This site was occupied approximately 3180 BCE–2500 BCE.
8 stone dwellings are what remain of Skara Brae today, each of these are linked together by low, covered passages. Considering the age of these structures, their preservation is astonishing, the walls still stand, and the alleyways are each roofed with their original slab of stone.
The preserved interior fittings of Skara Brae offer a rare insight and glimpse into the daily of Neolithic Orkney. Each house is similar in their basic design, each have a large square room, beds on either side, a shelved dresser on the wall opposite the doorway, and a central fireplace.
It was declared part of a UNESCO World Heritage site in 1999, and was described as proclaiming ”the triumphs of the human spirit in early ages and isolated places.”

This is INSANE. The cricket chirps are doubled on the track- one at regular speed and the other slowed down to match how it would sound stretched out to a human lifespan instead of a cricket’s.
I thought that there was a chorus in the background, but a woman explains that it’s all crickets at about the 50 second mark.
I have goosebumps.
