Friday Night Mish-Mash Round 1

I was planning to blog last night but ended up at work until 9:15 PM. So tonight, I blog. Three cool things for you this evening:

First, a little history:

Historic pictograph is First Nations view of treaty talks

Very cool to think of someone putting down on paper their view of what was happening. They want the pictograph back in Saskatchewan, but need to raise $175,000 US to purchase it. Haven't found any details yet, but the Royal Saskatchewan Museum is part of the bid, so if you want to help out, give them an email.

Second, a little more history:

Ice anglers discover unidentified shipwreck in Lake Superior

"The legend lives on from the Chippewa on down
Of the big lake they call Gitche Gumee
Superior, they say, never gives up her dead
When the gales of November come early."

Be interesting to find out what sort of a wreck it is, and how old.

And finally, a little sprituality:

How To Meditate

It's a great litttle website that introduces you to some of the basic skills of meditation, and to Kadampa Buddhism. The meditation information is really good, and it gives a nice bit of insight into the stages of meditation you journey though as a practitioner of this method of Buddhism.

I highly recommend meditation, by the way, no matter what your religion or lack thereof. It calms the mind and body, and helps you to take control of your life.
