75 years ago today

I discovered something that happened 75 years ago today. The above image shows the cover of the first issue of the pictorial journalism magazine named LIFE.

According to my internet research, it is Margaret Bourke-White's (American, 1904–1971)photograph of Fort Peck Dam in Montana from 1936.

You may find it interesting to look at Google's images of

LIFE COVERS -- particularly if you are 75 years old today like I am.

Human Cargo - Black Notes Only

I felt compelled to show these two items on the same blog post. I was very impressed with both of them. The first is HUMAN CARGO exhibit at The Museum of Mobile.

The second is a video turns out to not be viewable in the USA. What a disappointment!

I will substitute this video just to prove Amazing Grace is played on the "slave scale" on black notes only.

It's better to be a slow buddy...

...than to be a no buddy at all."

I have always thought of myself as a turtle or maybe a snail because I like to take my time instead of hurry.

Thanks, Mary, for sharing this with me.
