Lake Tahoe

The League to Save Lake Tahoe (Keep Tahoe Blue) has been the public interest watchdog in the Lake Tahoe Basin for over 45 years. Founded when a proposal to build a four-lane highway around the lake-with a bridge over the entrance to Emerald Bay-was proposed in 1959, the League has repeatedly thwarted poorly designed development projects and environmentally unsound planning. The league's popular "Keep Tahoe Blue" bumper sticker is most comonly found affixed to the back of the ever eco-friendly SUV's and Hummers.


rocks 1

Tahoe Rocks! Lake Tahoe,is the second deepest lake in the United States and the twelfth deepest on Earth. Approximately two-thirds of the shoreline is in California...but, forget California, you can gamble on the Nevada side!


Tahoe Two

Sand Harbor Beach at Lake Tahoe. Just can't get enough.


apple branch

Granny Smith apples tend to have a harder texture than other green apples, posing problems for denture wearers.


berry branch

The term berry, in common parlance and in cuisine, refers generically to any small, edible fruit with multiple seeds; in this sense, the tomato is a berry and the strawberry is not (in the botanical sense..uh, does this make sense?).


Spaghetti

The first documented pasta recipe with tomatoes was not until 1839 and rumor has it that neither Marco Polo or the Chinese had anything to do with it.


China

It has the world's longest continuously used written language system, and is said to be the source of some of the world's great inventions, including the Four Great Inventions of ancient China: paper, the compass, gunpowder, and printing. They also make nice souvenirs.


Apple Candle

According to chemistry and mineralogy, a crystal is a solid in which the constituent atoms, molecules, or ions are packed in a regularly ordered, repeating pattern extending in all three spatial dimensions. Also makes a nice wedding present...(thanks, by the way!)


shape sorter

Shape sorters are classic toddler favorites, and with good reason: Babies are really, really dumb.


rose vase

Deadheading is the simple practice of manually removing any spent, faded, withered or discolored flowers from rose shrubs over the course of the blooming season...or what you do when you don't want to put away your bong and get a job.
