"The Hobbit Enigma examines one of the greatest controversies in science today. Just what did scientists really find when they uncovered the tiny, human-like skeleton of a strange creature on the Indonesian island of Flores in 2003?
Since the discovery was made public a bitter dispute has split the world of anthropology.
Are the bones a previously unknown and bizarre primitive species of human..."\

Wow!! and what a bummer...I just gave my total self as I wondered about my immediate and far distant ancestors...
my mind was with my great grandfather
I;m sure that he had many questions about this huge unexplored world of the mid to late 1800's..
David heard about the beautiful paradise of Oz from other mates wrote to him
Imagine in the 1840s and 1850s...Rather than suffer the cold damp winters of the Scottish coastal lowlands...why not take a boat and papers to explore an uncharted continent on the other side of the world!!
His brother,Lt. George ....bayne, went to fight against slavery...
He and David kept up a correspondence
George was killed trying to escape a southern prison
"Lieutenant's Young and Turbayne, who were shot for being too close to the "dead line"http://www.geocities.com/cmp_csa/CMP_Deaths.htm
afterwards, David went to Queensland and founded the Queensland rifle club after running a station in the desert outback!
Dad had all the pictures and they are somewhere...especially David in front of the club of hunters all posing with their rifles...
I remember the pic as a child with no clue of the value of all of the things kept in storage in the attic...the childhood pics of Mom and Dad stored away in the comforts of Dad's attic study where he would walk away to do his writing and researching of philosophy...
Dad would live for the tennis and swimming as part of his daily ritual...
Now some of his daily rituals have become mine with the lack of my father's strict military discipline while enjoying the good things of life...such as
Life on the beach!
We are drawn to the sea and the ocean...
my son will take over our habits ...
the love of the water and the sea...

...It's 1030 and I just want a power nap before we make all the necessary phone calls and get on about paperwork...
my renters aren't paying....My Midfirst account is overdrawn for the first time!
I have to call my credit card and bank about those costs..
I have to call the IRS about taxes on interest that I never earned...
It doesn't come cheap having a family and inheriting all the problems of extra assets and now having a family as a financial liability...of course the intrinsic awards far outweight the other costs!
