    I'm sticking to real estate and teaching hockey. No way am I getting in a classroom these days. Teaching kids the real stuff, is hard. ;)

    Seeing this stuff reminds me of just how little history there is here in this country. We find Native American artifacts, but they're nothing like this stuff.
