Going Back In Time

This week's question: What historical time period would you most like to visit? Why?

I LOVE this question, but cannot help wondering if it would not be more appropriately answered on our history blog. :D

When I was a kid I was fascinated by the idea of time travel! However, as an adult I recognise the inherent problems with it, and acknowledge the difference between real history, and romanticized versions of different historical eras. For a humourous look at these please do visit my bus man's entry for this week's Blog Talkers: The Curse Of Being A Historian.

If there had to be one time period that I must visit, or one historical figure that I would want to meet it would be the late 14th century, and that person would be Leonardo da Vinci.

Leonardo was the "Renaissance Man," and an absolute genius! He, and he alone would not be freaked out by my visit, in fact I bet he would be completely intrigued, and accepting of my status as a time traveller.

Meeting with Leonardo would be very cool, plus I may also be able to get answers to a few modern day mysteries from him! B)

Lap-Band Surgery

I had the opportunity of visiting, and reviewing earlier today. This site is an online resource for lap-band surgery within the United States, which is JourneyLite's expertise.

The site provides helpful articles in order to determine if lap-band surgery may be right for you, what to expect, the costs involved, detailed information on upcoming free seminars, and an e-store.

If you are considering lap-band surgery it is worth checking out in my opinion. Just click on the link above to be taken directly to their website. :)
