I am not sure whether this is a new exhibit or whether it never fully registered with me previously. We go to the ‘Museum of Science‘ at least thrice a year, and have done for years and years. So, not much I haven’t seen.

But, I saw this yesterday. I knew what it was as soon as I saw it. Reading the accompanying sign only confirmed what I knew.

Neat. But, I am not 100% happy with the depiction. They seemed to have it garbled. It was unlikely to have been a ruin, in such disrepair, when folks were still living there! So, don’t call it ‘the ruins’ and show people still climbing it with ladders.

Also doesn’t explain why it is called the ‘White House‘. Yes, you can just about see the white building at the back. They believe it was painted white to reflect heat.


Well I have a LOT of posts on this blog about this ‘White House‘.

So, if you are interested just do a search on ‘White House Canyon‘.

Teischan’s (10) ‘Plains Indians’ Diorama For School.

by Anura Guruge


All her own work. Didn’t want any help with anything ONCE she found a piece of wood, for the base, that satisfied her. Took it to school this morning.

As I have said/shown before, Teischan is good at doing crafts. It is her second love in life, watching videos/TV her first. Actually what she really likes to do is work on crafts while watching videos on YouTube (on her pad). Some of her other craft projects: bathroom,  furniture, fireplace, Christmas
