Hello All. I can’t believe nobody has picked up on the fascinating
story of the true Rosetta Stone and shouldn’t worry a bit about the
name being used for crazy lace or anything else when you know that
story and see the real thing. It was carved in 196 B.C. in Egypt.
Found in 1799 and has writing on it in three different scripts. It
was named for the place it was found in the Nile delta. For your
edification, go to www.ancientegypt.co.uk/writing/rosetta.html and
have a great time.
Spring has sprung with cherry blossoms in DC and a great many
blossoms of all sorts in my VA garden.
