Hey Guys, doesn't seem like much activity has been happening here for awhile? I have visited most if not all of the museums listed by your comments. However living in New England I find there are hundreds of little out of the way museums of all sorts that have an a amazing history and appeal. I have been to the Museums in New York, Paris and London, Africa, Tiwain, and others...would love to have someone to go with to the local ones here in New England. Do any of you guys live in New England/ I am in New Hampshire.

The Metropolitan Museum of Art has released hundreds of their out-of-print exhibition catalogs as free PDF downloads. The link goes to the Met's publications division website (I've shortened it because, well, it was too long).

Despite its founder infamy, i have always enjoyed the Frick Museum in New York City.

I volunteer in the library of the Seattle Asian Art Museum. I don't currently work in a museum, but I used to a long time ago.  I really liked the daily contact with history.  The only thing more exciting than that, was taking people around the museum and introducing them to its wonderful collection.

Just purchased a membership to the Isabelle Stewart Gardener Museum in Boston, MA. The building is so majestic and inviting.
Renzo Piano's expansion is being constructed as I type!

Howdy'? I work in the V&A (Victoria and Albert) Museum in London, possibly one of the greatest museums in the world, though I do favour the smaller, more idiosyncratic ones too like the Horniman in Forest Hill, and the Sir John Soane Museum in Holborn is amazing. I should really try to get out of London more. Also the Gustave Moreau Museum in Paris. Grossest museum I've been to is possibly the parasitological museum in Tokyo.

June 27 - Chat not functioning

Currently the chat, and active member list do not appear to be functioning on any browser, for any users. I have notified Brett, and did not see anything on Ning's site regarding an issue, so I don't know what to expect regarding a resolution, but wanted to push out a general notice. Hopefully they'll get things running again soon. I'll post updates here, if I learn of any. See More

How do we greet one another

I was on my bike and he was walking.  His shirt was off and you could tell he was happy to be out enjoying the day with his body exposed to the sun and wind.  His physique was not impressive and it caused him no amount of inhibition, he was doing his thing and loving it.I wanted to call out as I rode past, to say something, even to stop and tell him "Me Too".But I didn't. and as I rode on I wondered - How do we greet one another? How do we show support and encouragement?  How do we express an…See More
