Welcome to Thursday Coffee Hour. This is an open topic thread so help yourself to the goodies and sit a spell and let us know what is new with you and what’s on your mind. Stonehenge and other stone circles have fascinated mankind since they were first discovered. There have been many different theories on why they were built. One of the prominent theories is they were used in astronomy and tracking the sun in order to know when to plant. I frequently use them in my artwork.

In Irish Mist I used the stone circle to unite the past with the present.

In Stargazing I pay tribute to the idea that the stones were used in astronomy.

Dinosaurs was a request from my niece when her youngest son was into both dinosaurs and Stonehenge. Now you know how Stonehenge was really built. ;-)

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
