Amsterdam drained a canal.........

Amsterdam drained a canal and put everything they found online, organized by time from AD 1300 to the present day... from pokemon tokens, to pipes, to guns, to human bones. Fascinating!

I heard an insightful comment at church the other week - ''our attitude is more important than our opinion''............. My attitude is that I strive to bring divisive sides together whilst maintaining a dialogue between them. My opinion is that some people can easily divide these same groups with...
