Dear Reader,

I don’t remodel well. I mean the “process” of remodeling …
where all one’s stuff is moved around all day. I don’t do
that part well.

Today is carpet installation day at the Feldman house.
And all I wanted was for them to come in the morning,
and leave me in the evening with new carpet. But according
to the small print of the contract I signed, they only move
FURNITURE. Which means I have to move every book, every toy,
every magazine, every knick-knack, every televison, radio,
stereo, computer, and all the clothes from the closets. When
I paid .11 a square foot for furniture moving, I didn’t realize
that this didn’t include even a single throw pillow!

I’m exhausted, and so far just one room is done. But I think it
looks real nice. I picked out a color that is already the color
of dirt … hoping that as we add new dirt to it, it won’t show
so much.

Your comments welcome.

Medieval castles served as both home and fortress to the monarchs and nobles that built them. Centuries later, they stand as reminders of an era long gone. Whether your interest in castles is historic or romantic, you’re sure to find something to pique your interest in these sites.

Castles @ National Geographic



“Greetings traveler. Before you looms a stone castle, built in Britain during the 1300s. … Castle life endured for centuries until gunpowder overpowered armor and stone. Now we know castles only as museums or ruins. But, as you’ll see, castle dwellers still haunt these halls. As you explore, click on them to learn their secrets.” In addition to the virtual castle tour for elementary and middle-schoolers (follow Marcus the mouse to move from room to room), there are two printable maze activities (click on Rescue at the Castle.)

Castles of Britain



“Castles have a timelessness that is awe-inspiring. That they have endured centuries of warfare and the effects of weather is a testimony to the creativity and power of their medieval owners. How many of us will have such long-lasting success?” ponders castle enthusiast Lise Hull. To explore her site, start with the Castle Learning Center, where you’ll find dozens of topics to peruse, including Building a Castle, Birdseye Views, Dungeons, and Life in a Castle. Other memorable sections are Castle of the Month, Photo Gallery, and Castle Ghosts (an alphabetic listing.)

Castles on the Web



Castles on the Web is a directory of hundreds of castle sites, organized by subject. Each site listing is annotated and includes a rating (from one to ten) created by visitors. Castles for Kids, Castle Collections and Medieval Studies are just a few of the topics covered. In addition to the site listings, Castles on the Web features a Photo Archive, Castle Glossary, a discussion board (Castle Quest) and free electronic castle postcards.
