Topic: Christian Mortensen (1882)
Posted: Friday, August 16, 2019 5:24:05 PM
On his 115th birthday Mortensen gave his advice for a long life: "Friends, a good cigar, drinking lots of good water, no alcohol, staying positive and lots of singing will keep you alive for a long time." This tells me living and living long is nothing but for the grace of God!

Human nature is everything greedy and selfish. Some consume even way beyond their appetite!

It lasts more than two weeks and has a cast of thousands, drawn from the local population. The pageant takes place in an open-air theater, specially constructed each time the festival is held, with Lake Geneva and the mountains beyond as a backdrop.

A backslider is like a dog going back to its vomit!
Topic: A lady's imagination is very rapid; it jumps from admiration to love, from love to matrimony in a moment.

She perhaps churns ideas and imaginations out by the truckload!
Topic: Beatrix Potter (1866)
Posted: Sunday, July 28, 2019 6:20:02 PM
Born into a privileged Unitarian family, Potter, along with her younger brother, Walter Bertram (1872–1918), grew up with few friends outside her large, extended family. Her parents were artistic, interested in nature and enjoyed the countryside. As children, Beatrix and Bertram had numerous small animals as pets which they observed closely and drew endlessly. Summer holidays were spent away from London, in Scotland and in the English Lake District where Beatrix developed a love of the natural world which was the subject of her painting from an early age.
Topic: Summer Jam at Watkins Glen (1973)
Posted: Sunday, July 28, 2019 6:18:38 PM
Although there were no reports of violence at Watkins Glen, the day July 28 1973, was marred by the death of Willard Smith, 35, a skydiver from Syracuse, New York. Smith dived from an airplane carrying flares. One of the flares ignited his body suit, and he was engulfed in flames. Smith's body was eventually found in the woods near the concert site. There is also the unsolved disappearance of two high school teenagers from Brooklyn who were hitchhiking to the concert.[
