  1. I completed my virtual tour of the Fondren house in an amazing 2:43. I must love history on the capitol as I managed to drag that out to almost 8 minutes.

  2. 1:50 on the Capitol and a whopping 4:19 on the Fondren house–that was a tough one!

  3. I couldn’t get the puzzles to open at the office – so I’ll have to give them a try when I get home to see what times I get.
