Sunday Roast: American Spring Betrayal

This picture was taken just after the switchback, and looks back toward the direction we came.  Lake McDonald is behind the mountains.

Who wants to sit on the rock wall and dangle their feet!!??

My son and I took a tour of the covered bridges around Cottage Grove, Oregon.  This covered bridge is the Dorena Bridge:

Constructed in 1949 and restored in 1996, this bridge was built after the construction of Dorena Dam on the Row River…

It’s a popular wedding site, which is easy to understand!

Sunday Roast: What if…

What if hate hadn’t killed the best of us?

What if fear hadn’t made us hateful?

What if ignorance hadn’t made us fearful?

What if poverty, hunger, and a lack of education hadn’t left so many of us ignorant?

What if greed hadn’t left so many of us hungry, uneducated, and in poverty?

What if wanting too much hadn’t made us greedy?

What if forgetting what was “enough” hadn’t made us want more than our share?

What if we all had enough?

Sunday Roast: British Pathé newsreels

From the British Pathé YouTube channel:

Since the invention of the moving image in the 1890’s, British Pathé began recording every aspect of global culture and news, for the cinema. With their unique combination of information and entertainment, British Pathé’s documentaries, newsreels, serials and films changed the way the world saw itself forever.

These videos are amazing, and it’s easy to get caught up watching one after another.  Disasters, inventions, daredevils, Queen Victoria’s funeral, the Hindenburg, as well as cute (and sometimes weird) animal videos.

Check ‘em out!  There are 85,000 clips from which to choose!

You thought I’d go for the obvious 4/20 or Easter Bunny post, didn’t you?  ;)
