Happy Saturday

I'm in Toronto to visit friends from Halifax, Wisconsin and Philadelphia. We might be going to the Royal Ontario Museum (ROM), home of Egyptian mummies, Greek goddesses (or at least their statues), and dinosaurs! Can't go wrong with dinosaurs! I hope that's where we end up going.

Here's what's on at the ROM: DIAMONDS!

Here's the Incomparable Diamond, on display there:

Now, don't get me wrong. I'm quite happy with my ring. Nor do I want something like the Incomparable Diamond, or the Hope Diamond, or the Millennium Star. But it is fun to look and learn about gems. I really enjoyed the PEARLS exhibit the ROM had in late 2004. What can I say? I like to look at sparkly things!
