Just two days after 127th anniversary of the Krakatoa eruption, Mount Sinabung in Indonesia erupted for the first time in 400 years. Let's hope it's not about to blow itself up. (I think Cinnabon should create some sort of special bun in its honor.)


Did you know that John Tyler of "Tippecanoe and Tyler Too!" fame, president from 1841-1845, has two living grandsons! How is that possible? Read the Mental Floss post 5 Things You Didn’t Know About John Tyler to find out.


George David Weiss, who wrote "Can't Help Falling In Love" (which was our wedding processional) and "What a Wonderful World" (which played at our reception) died last week. Sad.

In 1789, the governor of Australia granted land and some animals to James Ruse in an experiment to see how long it would take him to support himself. Within 15 months he had become self sufficient. The area is still known as Experiment Farm. This is my Experiment Farm to see how long it will take me to support myself by writing.
