World's Ten Tallest BuildingsI have long been fascinated by tall buildings. I blame the movie An Affair to Remember with Cary Grant and Deborah Kerr, whose characters meet, fall in love, and then plan to rendezvous at the Empire State Building six months later. The movie fueled my interest in the Empire State building, and from there my curiosity spread to other tall buildings. All in all my fascination with tall buildings is a bit strange considering my fear of heights, but there you have it. I love to look at skyline filled with skyscrapers, domes, and spires!This site shows you the ten tallest buildings in the world as of 2010. The buildings are organized on a graph by their official height. Use the scroll bar on the bottom of the page to move the page to the right so you can check out all of the skyscrapers.You can also view the graphs for the World's Tallest Buildings updated ranking for 2012 by clicking here. And even check upcoming skyscrapers that will be finished in 2015 just by clicking here. Of that listing, I really find the structure of the Makkah Royal Clock Tower Hotel to be interesting. All the other buildings continue the trend of being tall, streamlined, and almost futuristic, whereas the Makkah Royal Clock Tower Hotel has a more vintage design.Either way this graphs are neat-o!Copy and past the link below into your browser...........
To keep bell peppers fresh for at least two to three weeks,
when you first get them, cut out the core and seeds and wrap
the pieces in paper towel. Place the pepper pieces in a zipper
bag. This keeps them fresh so much longer!

All men dream but not equally. Those who dream by night in the dusty recesses of their minds wake in the day to find that it was vanity; but the dreamers of the day are dangerous men, for they may act their dream with open eyes to make it possible. - T.E. Lawrence, 1888-1935Sow an act, and you reap a habit; sow a habit, and you reap a character; sow a character, and you reap a destiny. - George Dana Boardman, 1801-1831A man should have any number of little aims about which he should be conscious and for which he should have names, but he should have neither name for, nor consciousness concerning, the main aim of his life. - Samuel Butler, 1835-1902
