Mount Fuji reflecting in Lake Tanuki, Japan.


What a gorgeous photo!


Love, love, love your pictures and your entertaining and informative narration. Looks and sounds like you have a beautiful family with lots of rich (although in regards to the Native Americans being driven from their land, not always happy) experiences. Now I can put a face to a name. Thanks for sharing!


I was doing some research and came across this


Sligo has seen some very important and tragic points in history. The links below will take you to some of the most notable events from Sligo’s past.

1832 Cholera Epidemic

The year 1832 saw a devastating outbreak of Cholera sweep through County Sligo. It is believed that tales of the horrors witnessed during this time were the inspiration for Bram Stoker’s work Dracula.


some Fall pictures

One of my favorite scenic drives for fall colors is the Kebler Pass. Supposedly the forest along the pass is the largest living organism in the world. Howerver, I’ve also heard that record is not official. So who knows. My question is do they count the trees in a forest this big?

These are all from trip last year down the pass. A few of them are from the road, but the rest I took on hikes up into the forest or off the beaten path a bit.


no wonder the Asian ladies did the same! always wondered about their shampooing and brushing said locks

Historic Photographs


In the Victorian era, the woman’s hair was considered an important part of her appearance and it marked her status and her femininity. Women in that era were often expected to grow their hair to great lengths, and it was common knowledge that a woman’s crowning glory was her hair. Take a look at these photos of Victorian women who never cut their hair (1860-1900):


well seems no one is interested, I think I am going to close this down


I’ll bet they had a LOT of split ends. LOL… Makes one wonder how they could maintain the health of this length of hair. Perhaps they didn’t even care?


it didn’t say in the article


Mary, those facebook links aren’t easy to open… I don’t use FB no longer, just FYI.


Maybe these videos answer that question :blush:

This one is from the 1700s:


oh my goodness! so glad I don’t have long hair!

Good Thinking


Everyone who has ever sewn has a tomato pincushion… our Grandmothers, mothers, aunts, literally everybody, and I wondered why. Well, according to folklore, people once thought the tomato was a symbol of good fortune and prosperity so when people moved into a new home they placed a tomato on the mantle. Since tomatoes are only seasonal, the ladies would create them from fabric and fill them with leaves and things from the outdoors.

During this same era the ladies did all the sewing for their families and their hand needles were very important, so they placed their important hand needle in their fabric “good luck” tomato and the tomato pin cushion was born. When I think of the pin cushion, I see my grandmother’s wrinkled hands, the bright red tomato next to her, sewing away. The tomato may not bring prosperity and good fortune but it definitely has nostalgia. 🍅

Evolution of the administrative division of Brazil

The history of Brazil begins with indigenous people in Brazil. Europeans arrived in Brazil at the ending of the 15th century. The first European to claim sovereignty over Indigenous lands part of what is now the territory of the Federative Republic of Brazil on the continent of South America was Pedro Álvares Cabral (c. 1467/1468 – c. 1520) on 22 April 1500 under the sponsorship of the Kingdom of Portugal. From the 16th to the early 19th century, Brazil was a colony and a part of the Portuguese Empire. The country expanded south along the coast and west along the Amazon and other inland rivers from the original 15 donatary captaincy colonies established on the northeast Atlantic coast east of the Tordesillas Line of 1494 (approximately the 46th meridian west) that divided the Portuguese domain to the east from the Spanish domain to the west, although Brazil was at one time a colony of Spain.[1] The country’s borders were only finalized in the early 20th century.

On 7 September 1822, the country declared its independence from Portugal and it became the Empire of Brazil. A military coup in 1889 established the First Brazilian Republic. The country has seen two dictatorship periods: the first during the Vargas Era (1937–1945) and the second during the military rule (1964–1985) under Brazilian military government.
