Dear Earl,
What is Stonehenge?

Stonehenge is a mysterious circle of giant stones located in southern England. It was built over a period of a thousand years, probably between 3000 and 2000 BC. Some of the stones weigh over 25 tons! As you can tell from this picture, these giant rocks were obviously arranged with some purpose in mind. But what was it? Most historians agree that it was built as a temple, but it was also probably used as an early astronomical tool! For instance, on the Summer Solstice (the longest day of the year) the rays of the sun align perfectly in the center of the structure. Creepy, huh?

    Lake monsters lurk on every continent. Nessie is one of the oldest. Stories of sightings on Loch Ness go back 1500 years to the time of Merlin. Other monsters have first been recorded in the past 100 years. All the monsters seem to be camera shy, but people who have seen them have no doubt they saw a real monster, possibly a dinosaur that survived meteor impacts and even ice ages.
