Love on ice

There’s love in the air here in Antarctica, where these Adélie penguins have congregated after a long winter at sea. October brings them ashore in search of their breeding grounds. Here they’ll pair up and grow their families, gathering in large colonies of thousands and constructing nests made of stones piled together on the shoreline. Love can be a cruel game, and these penguins are known to steal stones from other nests. But when it comes to parenting, Adélie mates make a progressive couple. Once the pair of eggs arrives, the parents will take turns keeping them warm, and both mom and dad will help raise the chicks. In March, Adélie penguins will return to sea, where they’ll spend their winter foraging among icebergs.

Quick fact:
The Adélie is the smallest species of penguin in the Antarctic.

Pretty Interesting!

Are you serious? Today is October 2! 2019!

I had a stitch in time to save nine to do this morning; so I boarded a thought train that took me to the history of the sewing machine. Care to come along? I found an article surprisingly written in January of this year. Actually, I found more than one written this year about the sewing machine. 

I wonder how many home sewing machines are actually used these days – in America. 

Commercially, we know multi-million dollar businesses utilize them; how else would those tall, thin models glide the runway for all those oohing and ahhing clothing buyers.  And let’s not forget those gazillion racks of clothes in our local Walmarts. 

Sewing has been around a long time — some say 20,000 years.

Mary Bellis said: “Hand sewing is an art form that is over 20,000 years old. The first sewing needles were made of bones or animal horns, and the first thread was made of animal sinew. Iron needles were invented in the 14th century. The first eyed needles appeared in the 15th century.” source

And, of course, there is Wikipedia for the scoop.
And from there I continued to visit with the Thought Co. and found a listing of the 10 most impactful inventions of the last 300 years. Can you guess number 1?  Here’s a link to read if you like.  Oh, okay.  I’ll list the ten.

Now think of this, Number 1, the telephone is now a combination of 1, 2, 3, 6 and 9. Sure it is. Our phones are mini computers that we can use to take pictures, watch television and when the lights go out we have a built in flashlight. 

How’s that for 300 years?

Oh, one more thing if you scroll this LINK you will find a video of accidental inventions. It’s pretty interesting.

Social climbing

March 2019 saw the opening of a structure called ‘Vessel’ that overlooks the Hudson River in New York. ‘Vessel’ is a 16-story, honeycomb-looking staircase that’s meant to be climbed. Its 154 flights of stairs are interconnected, much like Indian stepwells, which lent inspiration to designer Thomas Heatherwick. Not to worry. For those who would rather skip the 2,500 steps, they can reach the top via elevator.

We’re looking at this ultra-modern landmark to acknowledge how much has changed in the 410 years that have passed since 17th-century English explorer Henry Hudson first ‘discovered’ Manhattan. In early September 1609, Hudson guided the Dutch ship Half Moon up into the ‘north river’ from New York Bay at Manhattan Island, looking for a passage to the Pacific Ocean. He ended up at modern-day Albany, but the river that’s such an essential part of Manhattan’s identity now bears his name.
