Las Vegas Natural History Museum

A boy and his monkey suit.
Looking at the baby dinosaurs.

Pushing the button that makes the dinos "talk". There was a giant T-rex that made noise and it scared Marsh so bad that he ran away crying "HOME HOME! HELP! LOOK OUT!" It was cute.
The hands-on room.


Kind of reminded him of Kota at home.
He liked to pretend that Mr. Dino was gallopping. The little girl in the corner didn't even know the dino was there until Marshy got on!


In the Dome.


Not quite sure what he was doing.

Looking for Nemo.

Still looking at Nemo.
We had a good hours' worth of fun at the museum. It wasn't very big, but it was still a good time.

How are we looking at the paintings of Mark Rothko these days?
Is he old hat, replaced in America by more contemporary concerns? Looking at his minimal canvases and their enticing floating squares of subdued paint live at the MOMA recently, I had to stop to wonder whether he still communicates to a modern and younger audience.
Wahooart.com, the site that sells good canvas prints to order from their database of digital images, has many Rothko prints. I ordered this one, Blue and grey, http://EN.WahooArt.com/A55A04/w.nsf/OPRA/BRUE-8BWU7F
, that I have now hanging in my study. I can spend a long time looking at this elusive image that takes me to some other place not in this world.
