Happy Birthday to my lovely, amazing mother!  We love you.



General Curtiss Lemay’s Silver Wing Box

From the Wilson History & Research Center:

“This silver box featuring pilot’s wings belonged to United States Air Force General Curtis Emerson LeMay (1906-1990). LeMay organized the strategic bombing campaign in the Pacific Theater of Operations during WWII (1939-1945), organized the Berlin Airlift (1948) and restructured the Strategic Air Command of the United States.”

I think LeMay had an eye- this box is great. I hope the polish stays away because this patina is beautiful. It’s worth clicking on these photos for a closer look.

Dane Rowe Has A Fan Club

Dane Rowe has a Fan Club, inspired by her mix of style, looks and fearlessness on the racetrack. She’s an interesting lady, a coin expert now.  She was a sidecar-racer in the late 1960′s and 70′s, racing with her husband,  sidecar innovator Rudy Kurth.

Balancing Blocks

I don’t know what it is that I can’t stop obsessing about these Balancing Blocks, but I love them!  Made in Brooklyn, these vintage-looking blocks are made from leftover wood from local furniture shops.  Don’t they look fun?  I know I could waste some time with these..



For the Beer Buying Biker

If I had a bicycle this pretty, I’d always volunteer to do the beer run.. I’d also spend an extra $20 to get this cute 6-pack holder (which is actually a bike polo mallet holder, but who cares?).


Cue the Pink Floyd, Here Comes a Nature Light Show!

Terje Sorgjerd spent a week capturing one of the biggest (and most beautiful) aurora borealis shows in years.  Shot in Pas National Park bordering Russia, while tepratures around -20° F.

Satellite Images of Japan Disaster

It is unbelievably sad about Japan.  These before & after satellite photos break my heart.  Our thoughts and prayers go out to everyone there.

Also, my sister-in-law posted this terrifying, 1st person video of the Tsunami hitting.  It starts off slow, but will shortly make the hair on your neck stand up..
