We just returned from our Arizona Adventure, visiting with our friends John and Terry. We had a great time with them....from hiking in the Grand Canyon, Bisbee, riding Route 66, to Sedona and onto the OK Corral in Tombstone. What incredible sunrises, sunsets and breathtaking landscapes and lots of laughter.
We recently visited two historic man-caves, “Hildene”, the Lincoln Family home and hang-out for their son, Robert Todd Lincoln. There he enjoyed gentleman farming, gardening, added bonus: his wife even had chickens. Note the photo of the metal box she used to ship 3 dozen eggs through the mail.
The other historic man-cave is Norman Rockwell’s studio in Stockbridge, MA. This was moved onto the property in the Berkshires where the Rockwell Museum is located. He is one of my favorite illustrators.
Maybe the word man-cave is a stretch….neither one had a large flat screen TV, still a man-cave none the less.
I spotted this beautiful field of yellow flowers while driving near the border of Georgia and Tennessee. When I got out to take photos I noticed there was a sign saying it was “Canola Seed”. Very interesting indeed. Canola was developed through conventional plant breeding from rapeseed, an oilseed plant already used in ancient civilization as a fuel. Rapeseed is the highest-producing oil-seed crop in the USA. Canola now has become a major American cash crop.
