Gem is at a conference today leaving me to explore the grounds of the #latimer estate. The red brick #tudor style #mansion was completed in 1838 and was the headquarters of IV Corps from 1940 where captured German U-boat submarine crews and Luftwaffe pilots were initially held before being transferred to prisoner of war camps! It now has a spa where I think I'll spend most of my day 😉 #dayspa #house #statelyhome #buckinghamshire #englishcountryside #militaryhistory #armedforces #historygeek #buildings #architecture #architecturephotography #photo #pic #photooftheday #clouds #cloudporn #countryhouse #dayretreat #weekendbreak #escapethecity #ukhistory #redbrick #uktravel #england #traveltheworld #deveres #🇬🇧

This photo is from October 2015 when my wife and I were in Denver for the national American Academy of Family Practice meeting (AAFP FMX). We walked down to the state capitol building to check it out and it's pretty neat and a more intimate version of the Texas capitol building in Austin. In fact, the Texas and Colorado state capitols have the same architect, Elijah Meyers. The dome had just been restored a few years ago with gold leaf signifying the Colorado gold rushes. The dome itself is not stone but cast iron and during the recent restoration, historians found that the original color was bluish gray and not a pinkish gray to match the rest of the building. The rest of the capitol building is made from Colorado rose onyx marble which is found only in one quarry in Coloado- and the state capitol used it all up! #ColoradoStateCapitol #architecturephotography #architecture #history #historygeek #Denver #Colorado #ElijahMeyers

Aah it's so hard to wake up today! 😂 this photo was taken at the Reggia Di Caserta which is a palace built a few years after Versailles an that therefore is inspired by the French mansion! The story says that after the architect had finished building it the king asked him if he could create a replica just as good; when he answered yes, the King had his eyes taken out. The architect still built another incredible palace for a noble family nearby! #adventurelover #bikegirl #coolexperiences #youmewander#reggiadicaserta#historygeek #art#architectureilike #tagstagrammers#girlsontheroad#welovetravelling#placetogo#instashutter#instaweb#global_hotshotz#travelling#travelphotography#wonderlust#travel#ontheroad#happy#girl#sexy#smile#me#love#soultravel#outfitoftheday

In 1980 Bob Marley was not BOB MARLEY as he is known today... He was relatively unknown, none of his big stuff had become hits until after he died... Only Ride or Die Marley Fans from back then and Jamaicans had even heard his music and he was best known for writing "I Shot The Sheriff"  after Clapton covered it... Don't yell at me, the facts are facts and they say that this was how he was viewed back then... In Early September He had collapsed in Central Park and was given the news that his cancer he was diagnosed with 3 years before had spread and he should stop touring immediately but Bob knew The Pittsburgh Show was sold out and his Wailers needed the money so that is how Bob Marley and The Wailers ended up on Stage at The Stanley in Pittsburgh on September 23, 1980... I can't tell you if he knew it was The Last One or not but as I listen to it I can say that I sure as Hell know that he  sounded like he did... Giving it his all before collapsing on stage at the end of "Redemption Song" He would never take the stage again... Bob Marley would loose his battle with Cancer and become BOB MARLEY 8 months later on May 11, 1981... He was just 36 years old... May he forever Rest In Peace #onthisday #onthisdayinhistory #onthisdayinmusichistory  #musichistory #historychick #history #historygeek #historygirl #historynerd #musichistory #musichistory101 #musiclegend #musicicon #ilovemusic #history #historygirl #historygeek #historynerd #anelephantnvr4gets #bobmarley #bobmarleylastshow #bobmarleyliveforever #stanleytheater #pittsburghpennsylvania #rememberingbobmarley #thankyoubobmarley #gonetoosoon #gonebutneverforgotten #bobmarleyforever #fuckyoucancer

He was born Bruce Frederick Joseph Springsteen on September 23, 1949 in Long Branch New Jersey... He has been entertaining millions and millions for over 50 years, doing with The E-Street Band since 1972... I thank him for all of it... God Bless The Boss!!!! #onthisday #onthisdayinhistory #onthisdayinmusichistory  #musichistory #historychick #history #historygeek #historygirl #historynerd #musichistory #musichistory101 #musiclegend #musicicon #ilovemusic #history #historygirl #historygeek #historynerd #anelephantnvr4gets #onthisdayinnewjerseyhistory #newjersysown #theboss #brucespringsteen #brucespringsteenandtheestreetband #happybirthdayboss #happybirthdaybrucespringsteen #sobeautiful #sexy #thankyoubrucespringsteen

He got his start in acting at the age of 3... Radio, Broadway, Vaudeville, Television, and in a career spanning 8 decades he made over 300 films... He was The Epitome of A Hollywood Legend... The day he left us in 2014 I cried, for a few, then I straightened myself up and realized that we should all be so lucky to have lived for 93 years and do it half as well as he did...
Remembering The Legendary Mickey Rooney... First love and Best Friend of Judy Garland... He was born Joseph Yule, Jr. 97 years ago today in Brooklyn New York... I thank him for all of it and as always I ask him to Kiss Judy For Me... #onthisday #onthisdayinhistory #onthisdayinmoviehistory #onthisdayinhollywoodhistory  #anelephantnvr4gets #movielegend #moviehistory #history #historychick #historynerd #historygeek #historygirl #hollywoodhistory #legend #rememberingmickeyrooney #thegreatmickeyrooney #thankyoumickeyrooney #happybirthdayinheaven #happybirthdaymickeyrooney #rosco #vaudeville #mickeyandjudy #kissjudyforme #kissjudygarlandforme

DWARKA:
The lost kingdom of Lord Krishna is more than a myth. An archeological dream and a fantastical land, it boasts of a history that dates back to a time when human civilisation didn't exist in the rest of the world. With mentions in the Mahabharata, Dwarka was Krishna's capital that flourished in trade, giving it the title of a golden city. It is said that evil King Savla attacked Dwarka with a "Vimana" or a flying spaceship. Krishna's fury escalated leading to a gory battle between the two supreme powers. The sinking of this great kingdom however remains a mystery until date; some attribute it to the ice age, others to the rage of the gods. Until a few decades ago, Dwarka's kingdom was assumed to be a myth, like the cynics' view on the realism of the Mahabharata. While working on marine projects, archaeologists stumbled across appalling artefacts on the bed of the Arabian Sea of the region. What was found altered perceptions of Indian mythology, changing the face of our country's history forever. Lay beneath the sea are remnants of Krishna's kingdom; streets, carved stones, inscribed coins and utensils. Carbon dating them revealed that these artefacts date back a staggering 8,000 years - making Dwarka perhaps the oldest civilisation in the world. These excavations substantiate the descriptions of this kingdom in the Mahabharata, justifying that Krishna is in fact a reality and not a figment of our imagination, and proving that the Mahabharata did in fact take place✨

War movies are not meant to be fun. They are not meant to be exciting. They are meant to make us feel. Lucky, somber, grateful. They are meant--to move us. #historygeek #film #fridaynightvibes #drama #remember

American Troops of the 16th Infantry regiment and 1st infantry Division board a landing craft heading towards the beach at Oran, French Algeria during Operation Torch November 1942 note you can see a MP officer amongest them. Operation Torch was the invasion of French North Africa in order to take off pressure from the Soviet Union and divert axis forces and resources.
