I got a new book to help with my writing project. It's beautiful but I wish it was longer. I devoured the tiny thing in one sitting. The Poison Garden is on my bucket list.
Don't try this at home!

These are holocaust victim wedding rings from the Buchenwald Concentration Camp c. 1945. That whole “Trump is Hitler” thing sounding kinda ridiculous now, isn’t it? #holocaust #holocaustvictims #holocauststudies #holocaustawareness #nazi #hitler

I'm excited to be part of the restoration society that have been busy working on keeping the Wrights Hill Fortress open for a number of years now. The Fortress is a counter bombardment coastal artillery battery that was built to stop a possible Japanese invasion during WW2. It's located in Wellington NZ. Most of the fortress is based underground, at some points, 50ft underground. .

My students spent time today editing their essays. They used peer editing stations which I designed. It’s a much longer process and it messier than individual editing, however, I can see the kids getting much more out of the process. That the “middle school mind” means that students pay attention to what their peers think. We have one student who will shut down whenever we try to offer him advice for his writing. However, when his girlfriend looked at his essay, all of a sudden he was working to fix those errors!

We talk about great leaders and call them “history makers”, admiring how they changed the world and somehow in their own way made it a better place

You, too, can make history. Although we can easily think that making history is a glamorous ordeal and that it must feel great. In reality history is made in the small, minute, day by day decisions

Will you decide to practice a little more self control over those destructive emotions. Will you get up a little earlier or spend less time on social media or Netflix to, instead, read a book or study a topic that could lead to a new creative project

You change the world by being a little more YOU everyday. Who knows where the best version of you will lead to

On this day in 1945, a series of trials of accused Nazi war criminals, conducted by a U.S., French, and Soviet military tribunal based in Nuremberg, Germany, begins. Twenty-four former Nazi officials were tried, and when it was all over, one year later, half would be sentenced to death by hanging.

North Korean Chasu (Vice Marshall) Jo Myong-rok of the Korean People's Army is shown as he meets American President Bill Clinton at the White House during an official goodwill mission from North Korea to the United States. The White House, Washington DC, the USA. October 10th 2000. Jo is the highest ranking North Korean official ever to visit the United States, and when he went to Washington DC he met with Secretary of State Madeline Albright at the State Department and President Clinton at the White House. He was the first North Korean to directly meet with a President of the United States. Not only that, Jo was also the very first North Korean military official ever to visit the Pentagon, where he met Defense Secretary William Cohen. At that time he was the second most powerful man in North Korea, holding the number two spot on the National Defense Commission right under North Korean leader Kim Jong-il, so it was absolutely an unusual experience for all involved. This rare visit was reciprocated by Secretary Albright visiting Pyongyang and meeting with Kim Jong-il later that same month, and the two visits stirred up hopes that tensions between North Korea and the United States would at least cool for a while. This mood changed when the George W. Bush Administration took a harder line against North Korea, and that coupled with North Korea's nuclear weapons program and open threats made sure that North Korea remained an international pariah. To this day North Korea continues its nuclear weapons program dispite massive worldwide condemnation and isolation, and there appears to be no intent from the North Korean government of stopping. Tensions now are higher than they've ever been, but hopefully calm and collected heads will prevail over madness.

There has been much speculation since this story first appeared about what the strange letters, YOG’TZE, could possibly mean. Some have suggested that Stoll was simply mentally ill, and the unexplained letters were nothing more than the rambling scrawl of a mad man. But several explanations were also proposed. Some noted that YO6TZE was a call sign of a radio station in Romania. Actually this is most probably just a coincidence. Others noted that TZE may refers to a kind of yogurt flavoring. Others commented that YOGTZE is the anagram for Zygote. If we overturn the written, we may read 027,906, which some say it refers to a food-acid.

Remember the walking tour I told you about recently? The one that happened couple of weeks ago? Well, here are the two girls that joined me for that walk.
@melisdestef on your left and @may.shcherbinina on your right. Two great personalities. Two persons that are not afraid of travelling alone. Although I have some really nice travel buddies, travelling alone is a totally different story.
I still haven't tried it though... Have you done it? If so, what's your experience? .

Brynkir Tower. By the 1990s, the gothic tower was a rotten shell of a building but extensive repairs and a creative restoration converted the folly into a luxury high rise holiday cottage, ideal for those who want to pamper themselves in Gothic splendour in a tower built to impress a visiting king.

Something interesting thats been sitting in my collection of #eyewear for a few years - a pair of #1940s sand/sun #goggles.
My understanding is that this type of eyewear #protection was issued to #American and #Canadian #pilots to use for flight #missions during the #secondworldwar, as the eyewear design is verylight weight and easily folds up to fit into a pocket for easy access. The goggles themselves are incredibly flexible too which, in prior years, inspired myself to make a limited edition metal free #steampunk goggle line.

Im not a #military #eye #accessories expert so if someone has accurate info with working links to send my way, Id be most grateful.
.
My plan is to repair these goggles as much as possible for potential resale as part of the #AtticRaiders #limitededition
line featured in the #etsy shop.

There is no Salisbury steak in Salisbury, England. What they have is the magnificent 700 year old cathedral. The spire of which is the highest in England. It also houses one of the original copies of the Magna Carta. #salisburycathedral #medieval #england #magnacarta #historynerd #touristmode
