For Thanksgiving: A cornucopia of Learning, featuring accurate History and other rarely-found information

Lens-Artists Photo Challenge #175: Follow your Bliss

My header photo this week seems perfect for the topic, doesn't it?  I took it with my phone, from my chair at the nail spa where I get my monthly pedicures.  Once every month, I get to have someone else do my tootsies, and I get to just relax and feel pampered.  It's also a …

Intriguing election results from November 2

The press has been very active since early yesterday, registering and reacting to all the election results from around the country.  Not only did the state of Virginia turn a lot redder (electing a new governor and state assembly members), but locally the Deepest Blue city of Seattle seems to have chosen a new City …
