Today's Devereaux Nuggets

December 10 ~
On this day in 1799 the metric system of measurement was established in France. Research the history of the system, learn how to use it and find the tools you need @ your library.

Several days ago I asked for help identifying some pictures from the archives. With help from Sid Goss, Sam French and many of the people who have been associated with Storm Mountain over the years, some of the mysteries have been solved.

We know the mystery location was Storm Mountain, and are fairly certain the year was 1986. We have confirmed the identities of several folks in the pictures too.

Thanks! I'm sure we'll be calling on you all for help again.
