The adventure at The Dallas World Aquarium begins at the top of the rainforest exhibit, where exotic birds, such as Cocks-of-the-rock and many species of toucans, can be seen. Lounging around are Two-toed and Three-toed sloths. Endangered animals, such as Orinoco crocodiles, Giant river otters, Antillean manatees and several species of monkeys are part of the many conservation projects. The aquarium portion displays interesting marine life, including Japanese crabs, jellyfish, Leafy, Weedy and Ribbon seadragons. Black-footed and Blue penguins can be seen swimming as guests enjoy the outdoor South Africa exhibit. Sharks, rays and sawfish are only a few of the fish living in the Mundo Maya cenote. Safe from Neotropical eagles, are euphonias, tanagers and hummingbirds. Reptiles and amphibians, both of significance to the Maya culture, can be seen throughout the exhibit.
The new, world-class, adrenaline-rushing, mind-blowing, cooler-than-cool Perot Museum of Nature and Science is now open... right here in Dallas.
Our roots date back to 1936, with the opening of the Dallas Museum of Natural History in historic Fair Park, which would later merge with the Science Place and the Dallas Children’s Museum in 2006 to create the Museum of Nature & Science. The Museum of Nature & Science in Fair Park which houses our historical wildlife dioramas and active paleontology lab will remain a part of the Perot Museum, giving visitors the chance to see not only our new Museum in Victory Park but also our historic Museum in Fair Park.

In 1977, the Colonel's granddaughter, Helen Belo Morrison, agreed to sell the property to the Dallas Bar Association. She had been born in the house in 1902 and felt the Bar's plan to restore the home as the Dallas Legal Education Center was in accordance with family principles and feelings. The Dallas Bar Association connected the historic home and the chapel with an expansive, glass-roofed atrium.
In 2003, The Dallas Bar Association victoriously concluded its capital campaign which resulted in the addition of the exquisite Pavilion. Once again, the past was linked to the present and future through innovative design and distinctive architecture.

Woodworking is in my blood. My great great grandfather was a carpenter in Puerto Rico during the late 1800's. He couldn't read or write. In fact he signed his WWI draft card with an X. He worked hard so he could provide a living to his children. Now, three generations later, his great great grandchildren are educated, successful, and honorable people. I can't help but think that it is because of Ramon Feliciano Segarra born in 1876 that I enjoy working with wood so much.
I started woodturning about 1.5 years ago. I make pens, bowls, tostoneras, pilones, and more! I post items as I make them so stay tuned for new items! I can accept some custom requests on a case by case basis. If you are interested in getting something in a different type of wood or material, please message me and we can discuss.

It is easy to find a repair man in DFW who happens to play guitar. It is rare to find a university trained musician who repairs and restores concert instruments. As a trained musician I use my ear and tactile sensations to maximize the potential of a fine concert guitar. My curiosity lead me to study how fine instruments could be improved upon to maximize tone, intonation, comfort, and aesthetics. This desire for perfection lead me on a journey and the results turned my passion into a business. My use of only the finest tools allows me an exceptional level of quality and precision.
