From Our Collections: a Manangya katsina
August 7, 2020 · Be The First To Comment

Kachina dolls are familiar Native American museum objects. They appear in art galleries and anthropology exhibits alike, but they are often misrepresented, misidentified, and misunderstood. Even the term kachina leads to confusion; it is an Anglicized spelling of the Hopi word katsina (singular) or katsinam (plural). In the Hopi worldview, katsinam take on three different […]

The HMNS staff has been putting this quieter time in the galleries to great use.  Over time in every museum, permanent galleries and temporary exhibitions require maintenance.  However, it can be difficult to justify closing a gallery to complete maintenance work when you have visitors wanting to enjoy the collection.   The crew is using the […]

Katydid!…Did she?

Olive – a Giant Long-Legged Katydid from Malaysia – was with us for only a few days, however, she left us with a precious gift; her eggs! Now, will those eggs hatch? We’re keeping our fingers crossed over here that we’ll soon be seeing some cute little katydid babies! This insect has quickly become my […]

Parents and Kids Love Virtual Summer Camp

Tom · July 21, 2020, 11:23 pm

The first year I went to college, I studied hard. I have a friend who lives next to him, he often plays games overnight, he's very thin but smart. So I feel uncomfortable when he plays and sometimes yelling, I hate being bothered by him, I can concentrate to work or study. One beautiful day, I know: You are studying information technology, you want to create a game that can be suitable for anyone. This reason makes him play many different games to find focus on each game. I keep an eye on him, I think his ideas are great. I started talking to my neighbors and trying the game. Because I have never played it, my limbs are not flexible, my eyes are not fast and my head is reflective but my friends are not. He can play any game perfectly. Then, once a week, I follow him to the game store and my life is changing right now. When playing games, we must focus and have a clear strategy. If you are familiar with this, you will easily succeed in many other areas. We can solve all problems in life when the mood is good and the best way to relax is to play the game, you can forget all the bad things, you can neglect any body, even are beautiful boys. The boy is coming and sitting beside me because of his intense concentration. You can make friends with many smart people and special interests. However, you should play on a purposeful schedule to avoid being addicted. I realize: something in life is bad if we see them for the first time, but you can learn about reality to have an objective assessment for it. Friv | Friv 1000 | Kizi 5

Beach Bugs!

debra · July 16, 2020, 7:15 pm

Well, I’m confused more than ever. I was on the beach between Galveston & Surfside. I am Texan, and I’ve been there before without problems. This time, we had been there three nights, (& yes, there were droves of mosquitoes, but we got that under control). On the last day, we were packing the car to leave, when all of a sudden, a black swarm of vicious biting flies starting attacking the little girl I was with, and me! I’m an avid camper, so I generally know how to avert pests, but this was a dangerous situation. I used a whole bottle of repellent with Deet, and a whole bottle of Picadarin on the car and us, trying to drive them away. Nothing worked! My bruises and wells faded, but the little girls hung on nearly a month! She won’t go camping with me anymore, and I’m afraid to go back. What happened. I’ve camped in this area many times and have never been attacked like this before. Help!

Employee Picks: Our Favorite Stuff to See at HMNS

No, never. I would rather be on my own, have my friends, my family and have my support system and not need a guy. So, when these models are having a bad day, we wanted to make sure they always have a support system and someone to talk to. If you’re into fallen angels having sex to fight demons or watching superheroes get busy, Wicked Pictures is your go-to source. They get a brilliant idea to film a porno in order to make ends meets - one problem they don't have money to hire enough talent. Sestero moves in with Wiseau, and becomes a lead actor in Wiseau’s film. I’ve had one guy ask me to piss on my legs, to which I said no because I’m not a fan of watersports.

The filter studies websites you visit and reports or blocks you from accessing sites that may damage your computer or steal your data. One of her best movies can be found on one of the Score sites and it’s in second DVD of Double Dicked MILFs series, in which she takes it in the ass from BBCs.
