I was recently reading an article about the history of the chicken as it pertains to human diet. -I tried to find it to source here, but failed. Anyways, I too googled "cheeseburgers" and like you found that they came in to vogue later than I would have guessed. It's a relatively recent phenomena in American history. Discovering such things always makes me hopeful for the amazing food stuffs of the future!

Beautiful and dark photos. Pegs Leg is a fantastic image.
Isn't there an easy way to test the purity of gold without dismantling the bar/nugget?

Reading this article terrifies me regarding public education. But reading this teachers take on it makes me glad to know educators like her exist.

* I will also give you the best advice I can, advice from the Nobel Prize-winning writer, Juan Ramón Jiménez. Ray Bradbury thought this was so important, he used it as the epigraph at the beginning of Fahrenheit 451: “When they give you lined paper, write the other way.*”

Thank you, sounds interesting I appreciate the recommendation.
It is nice to hear the birds again, I agree. I've been able to take walks outside quite a bit already this year and there is no way that I'd normally be doing that. There are flowers on some of the trees too and you get the smell of spring on the air. I'm not complaining.

Thank you for this, I really appreciate it.
I couldn't understand a word she said but I still think she's a great actress. That Fiona Pepper is going places.

This would be nice in text form, so I could take my time digesting her ideas.
Hmmm... now I have to hear Rumblefish.

I don't know about coding either, but this sure looks beautiful... doesn't sound too shabby either.

"We would never say to everyone, “Who cares if you know anything about surgery or medicine? The important thing is that you make your cut.” Yet for some reason, we do say, “It doesn’t matter if you know much about politics. The important thing is to vote.” In both cases, incompetent decision-making can hurt innocent people". A great analogy.
