Yes, be sure to get someone who knows what they are talking about. I'm not sure how you check them out. We were just lucky to have some very knowledgeable guides.

I'm not sure about the Sphinx's n ...

I still don't know how to work the quote thing.

Baksheesh! OMG. You couldn't even go to the bathroom without a pound note in your hand. We started referring to the pound notes as "toilet paper." And I even brought my own Kleenex. It didn' ...

No need to have burning ears. I knew you'd be reading it. Laughing

I don't even remember the names of the forums I was in, so I can't exactly give you the URLs. They do have invitations they can send out. I think I replied to a few of those. You start getting known i ...

I went to jawest.net and booked it from there. John Anthony West is a bit of a rogue. Our moderator doesn't like his theories about the age of the Sphinx, but West is an extremely erudite man and real ...

Yes, they were all Yahoo groups, but I can't remember the names of them. The Kite Guy had never heard of that theory of winged sails and kites lifting rocks because he was really, really stupid. He t ...

Somehow I missed this until today.

I actually communicated with West and he says he's used to getting slammed all over the Internet, so... He just wants all of you to know the geo-panel he plans ...
