The Whistle of DEATH

Ran across this nifty article on CNN telling of freaky whistles that they found buried in the hands of a skeleton. I’m pretty sure that the baby across the courtyard is simulating the whistle of death when s/he screams in the afternoons. Anyway, it’s an interesting look at death rituals of the Aztecs – I guess they used whistles for a lot of things.

We were toying with the notion of going to Mexico to vacation and look at some ruins and stuff. Anyone been and have suggestions?

  1. Nothing to do with this particular post, but I noticed in your sidebar that you are reading “Too Great a Lady”. So am I. While I am enjoying it, it’s a bit of the same old same old because I’ve read numerous biographies of Lady Hamilton. She is a very interesting character. I have a thing for courtesans, so I read a lot of books about them. If I were the kind of person who believed in past lives, I think I may have been one in a past life. Really. 😉

  2. I just finished it – it was my first Emma Hamilton book – if you know of others, lemme know! I have a li-berry card now! 😉 I could see you getting your courtesan on! 🙂

  3. Craig – Good to know!

    Mexico Vacation Awareness – We’ve been avoiding it because they have a bit of a, you know, shooting problem lately with the drug wars. It’s off the books for this year but I plan to keep it on the list of places I want to see some day. I’m so sorry for the loss of Nolan.
