"I think I could live there. Where is it?" he said, as the long winter kept taking its toll on his spirit.

An Island (Boca Chita Key) on the far side of Biscayne Bay, part of the National Park. A lighthouse, restrooms, picnic tables, places to dock. You can picnic and camp overnight, provided you carry in/out. Park service runs a boat out, unless the sequester has shut it down. Would NOT like to be there during a hurricane.

J is for JADE (or JADEITE) MASK - Olmec, 10~6th century BCE. These masks are hollowed out at the back, with piercings at the ears seemingly so they could be tied on over the face, but there are no mouth, nostril, or critically eye holes.

N is for NOSE ORNAMENT, from Mexico, gold. Posted an image of a different example some time back. Such an improbable personal adornment. Imagine Groucho Marx with this instead of his own.

Q is for QUILL PEN, here in the hand of Tyndale working on his English Bible. FYI: over 75% of the King James Bible is thought to be taken from Tyndale's work. Question: did he actually use a rather modern-looking lap desk?

Wpresto,
Probably yes. Most of his translation work was done as an exile in Holland, and required pretty much a mobile desk. He was constantly on the move, evading his pursuers.

S is for SPIDER. This species has impossibly long slender legs, proportionally to the body, longer than those of a daddy long legs. So I concentrated on the head & eyes, with fangs just visible.
