DAILY CALENDAR CHALLENGE #181 – JUNE 30, 2013

Well, we made it through half of 2013. That means its time for A HALF-TIME RESOLUTION RECONSIDERATION. Back on January 1, I resolved to complete the daily challenge offered by my new Origami Calendar. I also foolishly added two other puzzle calendars I had received for Christmas. These two calendars have become somewhat dull and repetitious over the last six months. So starting tomorrow, I’ll only feature them on this page when they offer something different and interesting to all.  Ok, I’m getting rid of the math! I admit it. The post title will change to MY DAILY CALENDAR – DAY 182. I’m sure I’ll be able to fill in the rest of the post with interesting tidbits and activities.

#1 THE ORIGAMI CALENDAR CHALLENGE – A HORSE, A HORSE, MY KINGDOM FOR A HORSE.

Since my calendar fail to give me an origami goal for today, I took it upon myself to answer Richard III’s final plea and create an origami horse for him.DSCF0386

Though I doubt if my sturdy steed would have helped him much … they just found him a couple of weeks ago buried under a parking lot in the British country side.

#2 THE MENSA PUZZLE CALENDAR – SUNDAY HALF

And remember, a limb is not only on a tree.

#3 THE PAGE-A-DAY PUZZLE CALENDAR – THE BLASTED BRATS ARE AT IT AGAIN

 

DSCF0319Yes, the young minds are at it again. Yes, its math again … for the final time. But think angles! And you know that the last row has to start off with a six.

MY DAILY CALENDAR – DAY 180 SATURDAY, JUNE 29, 2013

Yesterday, I went to the opening  of the new East Building of the Saint Louis Art Museum.  DSCF0345  The entire length of Fine Arts Drive in front of the Museum was closed to traffic for a two-day Festival Of Art featuring all aspects of art in Saint Louis with live hourly performances from every cultural group in the St. Louis area … from Native American Dance group to the Symphony Orchestra. I was surprised by how much space is inside the building. It adds 21 new galleries to the museum, which enables it to put art that has been in storages for years on display for the public to see. Because of the large crowd attending the opening, I want able to take the photos I really wanted to capture. But I will be going back in the next week or so. I was able to add my wish to Yoko Ono’s Wish Trees which are part of the new out-door sculpture which has just started being installed behind the Museum. DSCF0355 DSCF0356 DSCF0357  My wish was that future generations for 100 times 100 years be able to receive the enlightenment and enjoyment that I did during my many visits. And as so many speakers at the opening presentation stated … the museum has always been open to all for FREE. It will however, cost you to park in the new parking garage under the addition. I will be following up with more details and photos in the next week or so.
