March 31 2007 Middle Eastern Culture Newsletter


Here's the latest news from the Middle Eastern Culture site at BellaOnline.com. I spent a couple of days this week driving most of the length of I-5 - hence the lateness of this newsletter. As a driving companion I had the first third of the audio version of A History of the Arab Peoples by Albert Hourani. I was particularly struck by the commonality between the landscape I was driving through (the great basin of California) and the descriptions of areas of the Middle East. I saw quite a few sheep and palm trees too! I'll be sure to leave for my return trip with fully charged batteries so I can listen to the rest of it.

Don't forget this site has a community forum for fun, free online discussions all about Middle Eastern Culture.

Middle Eastern Culture Forum

cdmohatta posted a link to an interesting article about a theory of the construction of the Great Pyramid. - Riddle of the Great Pyramid's solved? This theory seems at least somewhat opposed to the theory we were discussing late last year in the forum The Pyramids Were Made of Concrete! It will be interesting to see what happens in this field in the future!

We just finished up a forum trivia contest - Jase is the proud new owner of a copy of Pilate's Wife by Antoinette May. Several other forums still have active trivia contests and remember, if you don't play, you can't win! And our book club discussions start next week!

I hope to hear from you sometime soon, either in the forum or in response to this email message. I thrive on your feedback!

Please visit middleeasternculture.bellaonline.com for even more great content about Middle Eastern Culture and have fun passing this message along to family and friends, because we all love free knowledge!
