This is like a reading comprehension test in elementary school.  I see two guys looking right.  But I know I've got to use other clues too...   :rtfm:

 

Long scarf, see one, and then a short scarf... clean-shaven, ya...

John has his hands partially tucked into some sort of tool-belt apparatus; George has narrow lapels on his jacket; Paul has a cuff-link showing at his right wrist and the other guy is Ringo.

Do you love a good scare and getting together with hundreds of your ghoulish friends?

 

Then the Royal BC Museum has just the ticket – and they’re on sale as of 10 a.m. Friday morning, Sept. 20.

 

Night Shift: the Halloween version, is an adult-only licensed event happening Oct. 26 at the museum, where you can wander through selected galleries in costume, enjoy drinks and nibblies and marvel at the lengths some people go to get decked on for this special night.

An hour before the photo was taken, the marmot had spotted the Tibetan fox and whistled an alarm to warn the other 30 marmots in its colony to take cover. But seeing as the fox, a mother with three kits, had not moved in a long time, the marmot left its burrow again, explains the caption for the photo.

The fox killed the marmot shortly after the photo, titled The Moment, was taken.

The Royal BC Museum’s largest attraction is celebrating a big birthday milestone. 

Woolly the Mammoth debuted in Victoria 40 years ago in December 1979, and the museum is celebrating with a mammoth-sized celebration for the furry fan favourite. 

The four-hour party takes place on January 26th, 2020, from 12:00 to 4:00 p.m. The party will have music, crafts, and educational animation station, and an hourly chance to win one of five stuffed Woollies!

The museum’s mammoth, Woolly, is marking 40 years of greeting some 12 million visitors. In an effort to celebrate his time in the Ice Age and the fact he’s now middle-aged, the RBCM is hosting a birthday party fit for a mammoth in the Natural History Gallery on Jan. 26. From noon until 4 p.m., all are welcome to stop in for music, crafts, an animation station and prizes.

The latest display changes to the mammoth exhibit and the B.C. wildlife showcase are a little odd. They blocked a portion of the mammoth showcase for a large display that goes against the flow of the space. So odd. And other changes to the displays feel a little too modern/out of sync with the previous displays.

Maybe I’m just getting old.

Know it all.

I am guessing most of them are dead by now anyway.
