    Cool Milwaukee 2017

    Team Meaner Simikkles has been researching the Milwaukee location on paper and internet for 2 years. Today, we travel forth to our Milwaukee location to (Hopefully) pinpoint a dig location. Next step will be getting permission from the city for a dig- we hope!!!! Wish us luck!!!!!!!! We'll let you know if our optimism was warranted!!!!
    "We may not be first, but at least we are not last!" Meaner Simikkles RULE!

    Whats the word?

    Any comment on the meaning of "as you walk the beating of the world" or "from woman, with harpsichord"?

    My favorite thoughts so far are W. WI Ave is the street you walk as you view Mitchell Mansion, 3 stories plus an observation tower (adds 2 more stories) topped with a flag. The US flag design is thought to be from a woman, Betsy Ross, but according to recorded documents to Congress the design was from the man who published the book "Seven Songs for Harpsichord" and signer of the Declaration of Independence, Francis Hopkinson https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Francis_Hopkinson

    On a standard map of Milwaukee where the scale is about 1inch = .71 miles, a few key factors led me to take a 200 degree compass walk from the area near 2nd and Grand (200-block) to the vicinity of Kosy Park approx. 3 miles away. I like that overall distance for its being a distance walked in 1-hour, known as the unit if a League, "a distance in time."

    I like how the dwarven puzzle would involve using tools on a map. I also like thinking of the juggler as a collector of objects. This is why I think theres a strong relationship to be understood when looking for birch trees, four of which are found along the west side of Kosy Park. This has been verified. They are also much older than 35 years in age. The strong relationship I speak of involves denominations of money and postage stamps. The early 1-cent pennies, after the Ben Franklin "Fugio" design, were known as the "Birch" penny, named for its designer, the primary feature being a circle of laurels. Could also be why the "Laureate" sculpture was selected as a hidden shape in the juggler's hair. Then there was a 5c Wisconsin stamp featuring Thaddeus Kosciuszko. I think hus statue is the proud, tall fifth, for being discoverable after a path of 4 birch trees and being a 5c stamp, fitting the "you'll see a letter from the country [Poland]" since letters are generally sent with a stamp.

    At the southern foot, IMHO, is a simple instruction to dig in the grass area 1-foot south aligned with the hoof of the horse statue. Notice how the hoof is an exact match for the shape in the juggler's hand -people have proposed its the shape of a bell.
