Most of today and tomorrow at Mom and Dads

A couple of images sent to me by the incredibly helpful Lucas Machias

"And if I were your husband, madam, I should drink it."


  1. That graphic of the lakes and the Caspian sea is pretty cool. I've never seen a representation of the comparative sizes of our Great Lakes juxtaposed with the large lakes elsewhere on our globe. As a kid who grew up on Lake Superior and Lake Michigan, I just sort of took them for granted as "normal". But they're not - they're pretty magnificent.


  2. Favorite Churchill quote. The guy was an idiot, although he was a GREAT idiot for America, yet he could turn a phrase.

  3. That second one is an interesting comparison of the lakes world wide. Re the Romans, NOT the job I would have wanted... Natural life expectancy wasn't in the cards for them...


Readers who are willing to comment make this a better blog. Civil dialog is a valuable thing.
