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.

Rusty Rogers replied to Tim Buck's discussion Who should you get a professional massage from: male or female?
"I've had both. I have noticed one difference: guys tend to have larger hands and use more muscles (rougher massage). Therefore, from my experience, the guys gave deeper massages but the ladies gave gentle/relaxing massages. Of course, if I give…"

"She.  And yes.  But most others don't. I do judo now so it's more likely that I'll come into work limping rather than with a black eye, but I still get funny looks from the people who don't know me. "
