OK, who called this meeting? It's winter for God's sake.

The Jessica thread has 421 posts. This is number 420 in this thread.

Terra Nova was the ship that got them there.

Cape Crozier?

Three penguin eggs made it back to England.

my favorite polar book, that compares ( no comparison actually) Amundsen versus Scott is Roland Huntsford's
The Last Place on Earth.

What In The World Happened Here? XXXVI (36)

looks like ferry docks on mainland and SE end of island.

numbers could be floods, earthquakes, wars, Acts of God and ungods, or other. Adds up to 442, but I do not see an Olds 442 on the road.

The smaller island at the bottom where the road goes through looks like it has been excavated or perhaps has those hillside water catch-basins like you see in the Caribbean.

What In The World Happened Here? XXXVII (37):


The pole vaulting mentioned earlier leads me to add another quiz in that direction. I realize that number 36 was just started, but the reason for numbering was to prevent confusion amongst multiple overlapping quizes. Plus, pole vaulting is big deal at our house and I must strike while the iron is hot (that is not a clue).

So for #37 where, when, who, and who else was there?

What comment would Sherlock Holmes make in a case like this?

I knew I was running the risk of not being to refer to An Evening Wasted with Tom Lehrer.

Y, Tb, Er, Yb, Gd, Ho, and Tm have something in common.

Tough to come up with a cryptic answer for this one, but I'll try:

Its a pretty rare spot on the earth, but the Village of 39 on the island that sounds like prayer beads is indeed elemental. The rest are considered hidden by the Greek, although the village showed its mettle.

How's that?

Me neither, but my son could give a pretty good rendition back in elementary school. I may have warped him a bit with those records -- he knew most of the songs by heart.

Interesting-looking vaulting competition. Any hints?

That's an "Apollo" brand pole, and the moon is just peeking over the horizon.
