                Did you know? 

   ... that today is the Birthday of John Wayne (1907)? Born Marion Morrison, John 'Duke' Wayne was among the top box office draws for over three decades. An enduring American icon, he epitomized rugged masculinity and is famous for his distinctive calm voice, walk, and height. Thanks for the memories, Duke!

Can you recognize this photo?

For the next several months a photo from decades ago will be posted below.  You should be tempted to try and identify the person in the photo.  Write down their name.  Some will be easy; others far more difficult.  But this exercise will be a fun one for you to check out every couple of weeks to see if your memory is still intact and working!  The name of the person in the photo will be posted the next time a new photo is shown.

Last May 1st's photo was of:  Princess Diana, and her children William and Harry.

Here is our May 18 th's photo:  It's from 1895; and he was British.

      Gifts for Pets and the People Who Love Them

If you have a dog, cat, or other non-human family member, you may find that the number of gifts for pets currently on the market is astounding. The booming pet industry has prompted the creation of stores and websites dedicated to pampering pooches (and other furry, feathered or scaled companions) that offer an array of potential gifts that might seem to rival a child's toy store!

Here are some simple ideas to get you started:
