A very inviting and educational place to come. Thank you to Doors Open, and many thanks to those of you that have actually checked out all five of these articles. If you wanted to, this is the place you can check all of the facts and numbers I have quoted.DSC_0190 DSC_0175As I was wandering the halls this sign caught my eye and made me chuckle.
