I spent most of last week out in Kansas,  where it is distinctly flat.  It was flat and snowless, although it was as cold as the rest of the country.  Anyway, the first thing I did when I returned home to New Hampshire was pop over to check on my favorite view – Mount Chocorua as seen across Lake Chocorua from Tamworth, NH.

I found the lake in mid-winter mode with eerie cloud cover and odd ice formations, which actually meant relatively mild temperatures.  In any case, it was nice to be home again.

TESOn my next trip to New York City, I am going to make sure I visit The Evolution Store – a place that promises to be a museum-like attraction as much as a retail destination. The Evolution Store is a place where you can see – and purchase if you desire – real human skulls. For real.

About The Evolution Store: “A landmark in Manhattan’s SoHo art district since 1993, The Evolution Store is NYC’s premiere retail destination for science and natural history collectibles, artifacts, gifts, and home furnishings. Our store offers a museum quality atmosphere creating a unique and intimate shopping experience. We have an entomology workshop staffed by talented experts in the field, and our sales personnel are helpful, knowledgeable, and enthusiastic. Our specimens are obtained from paleontologists, entomologists, anthropologists and others who supply museums and private collectors from all corners of the world. All of our items are legally obtained and can be legally sold in New York State.”

What is my main attraction to The Evolution Store? Heck, you’ve just got to love a store that has a “taxidermy department” – right?
