Becoming Human

Are you a bookmarker like me? When I come across some interesting web sites that I don't have time to read in depth at that moment, I'll save it into a temp folder. The list gets rather long, so now and then I go through a few of them. Some get saved into properly named folders, some discarded, and some are great to share, like this one - Becoming Human: Paleoanthropology, Evolution and Human Origins. It's a very well done interactive flash documentary that tells the story of our origins. There is even a section on Culture about our ancestors' great creativity, their rock paintings, engravings and sculpture.

So get a cup of tea, a comfortable chair, turn up the volume and enjoy! (or bookmark it for future reading, like me!) And sorry, I don't remember where I found it but thanks to whomever shared it, perhaps another bookmarker.

Hi! Just blog-surfed into your neighborhood and really enjoyed the cup of tea and the history of humanoid. Thank you for sharing that. I would like to add a link to your site from mine if it is ok with you.

My Wild Apples site is my exploration for my second book. My first was on the emotional impact of caregiving. Wild Apples will be those small bits of human life that need to be continued into the future - a cup of tea, for example!

I live in Denver - have for umpteen zillion years. I'm a retired educator, writer, knitter, reader, etc etc. Thanks again for my educational tea party!

Best regards, Sue

Hi Sue! Thanks for the visit and comment, and of course you may link to it, again thanks. Your site sounds really interesting - I look forward to exploring it and sharing some cups of tea!

I am a bookmarker and I did the same with that site a few months ago. It was great! I got one of my kids to watch it too. Nice use of the medium.
