Did She Just Steal One of Big Bird's Feathers?
Whoa, how cool is this photo from 1970 of Big Bird meeting First Lady Mrs. Nixon?
Big Bird was looking a little different back in the day.
This is What it Looks Like When People Build a Bridge
This incredible photo was taken on March 23, 1909.
It is so cool to see a suspension bridge in the midst of construction.
This is the Manhattan Bridge that crosses the East River in NYC. The bridge connects Lower Manhattan with Brooklyn.
The bridge was completed 8 months later on December 31, 1909.
Indian Culture is Spreading Across the World
Thanks to photographer James Dennes, we can take a look inside the Holi Open Air Festival in Berlin.
Holi is a traditional festival that is celebrated in India.
There are many parts to the celebration, all rich with meaning, based on the story of King Hiranyakashyap and his sister.
These photos are showing the best part of the festival, known as the "Play of Colors."
In Berlin, this event was held July 29th and it was the first time Holi was celebrated in Europe.
Tickets sold out in less than a day so I suppose it was a smashing success.
What If Humans Had Polydactyly Hands?
Have you ever wondered why humans have five fingers? There must be a reason for it.
Evolutionist wonder how things would change if humans had more fingers. The effect is debatable, but there are some people that do have six fingers because of a genetic difference.
Having six fingers would definitely have an impact on learning math since we have a base ten system and children often use their hands to learn this concept.
My theory is that we would have a lot more basketball players that can dunk one handed if we had more than five fingers!

The Oldest General Store in the USA Closes Down
This is Grays General Store in Little Compton, Rhode Island and it has been doing business for 224 years.
The store was opened way back in 1788 and was family owned and operated.
Now, Jonah Waite has been forced to close the doors forever after the loss of his father last month.
Jonah says that the shop just doesn't make any money and most people go to the supermarket down the street.
I long for the days when small family owned business are easier to find than giant corporations in our communities.
Don't forget to always try to support the little guy.
