    What are some not to be missed attractions in Rapid City, South Dakota?

    At the College of Mining and Technology, the Museum of Geology has fascinating displays of fossilized remains of prehistoric animals from the Badlands area. It's free, and staffed by students SO eager to answer questions. It can be tricky to find on campus, but just ask any of the students. Also good: the Journey Museum has lots on regional history. Both recommended for adults and older kids. We also enjoyed the displays of historic planes (outside) and the museum Ellsworth Air Force Base. over 7 years ago

    Which is the best guest ranch in Montana?

    Depends on what you want. One I can recommend is the Seven Lazy P, outside Choteau on the Rocky Mountain Front. It has been run for many years by a wonderful Montana family. Comfortable accommodations, good food, great horses, and you can ride both up into mountain canyons and down toward the prairie. Also good hiking if you prefer that. And if you are really adventutous, check out their 10- day pack trips into the Bob Marshall Wilderness Area, known here in Montana as just "The Bob." My husband and I have done The Bob with them three times. over 7 years ago

    What's qwerty mean?

    It's on the top line of keys on a keyboard, hence refers to the conventional keyboard layout. Incidentally, it actually makes typing slower by putting the most used keys far apart. (For example, watch what your fingers have to do to type "the"). And that was the idea. On the original typewriters, of course, there were metal keys that raised up to strike the paper; if you typed too fast, the keys would interlock and jam. So now, in our electronic era, we're still stuck, by convention, in a suboptimal system . over 7 years ago
