Tsavo maneaters The Tsavo Man-Eaters were a pair of notorious man-eating Tsavo lions responsible for the deaths of a number of construction workers on the Kenya-Uganda Railway from March through December 1898. History The first lion killed by Patterson, now known as FMNH 23970. The second lion, FMNH 23969 Patterson writes in his account that he wounded the first lion with one bullet from a Martini-Enfield chambered in .303 calibre. The first was fired from atop a scaffolding Patterson had built near goat kills done by the lion. After 25 years as Patterson's floor rugs, the lions' skins were sold to the Chicago Field Museum in 1924 for a sum of US$5,000 (US $66,389.37 in 2012). The lions' skins arrived at the museum in very poor condition. Patterson's accounts were published in his 1907 book The Man-Eaters of Tsavo. Modern research The two lion specimens in Chicago's Field Museum are known as FMNH 23970 (killed 9 December 1898) and FMNH 23969 (killed 29 December 1898). Popular culture

Caramel Brownie Cheesecake This is a monkeyhead concoction so please don’t be disappointed with me that it’s not 100% homemade. Sometimes as a mom you have to go with your childrens ideas in order to lift their creative wings. Monkey One loves cheesecake and caramel, Monkey Two has a passion for brownies you put the two of these knuckleheads together and look at what they come up with… Caramel Brownie Cheesecake. You gotta love the way these boys think. M2 loves his brownie mix above because while I’m at work he can whip up a batch with my surfer and feel like he has stepped out of his sous chef role into the postion of head honcho. While the boys made the brownie mix I lined a springform pan with parchment paper. Once the brownie mix was in the oven we moved on to making Jamie’s caramel. In a heavy saucepan stir together the sugar, syrup and water until the sugar is completely moistened. Stirring constantly over medium heat until the sugar dissolves and the syrup is bubbling. Stir in the butter and salt. Voila!
