This 1988 film is a modern update on The Christmas Carol classic and well worth watching.

ART OF THE WEEK

Stonehenge

carol-at-stonehenge

Stonehenge’s ring of standing stones are set within earthworks in the middle of the most dense complex of Neolithic and Bronze Age monuments in England, including several hundred burial mounds.

Archaeologists believe it was constructed from 3000 BC to 2000 BC. The surrounding circular earth bank and ditch, which constitute the earliest phase of the monument, have been dated to about 3100 BC. Radiocarbon dating suggests that the first bluestones were raised between 2400 and 2200 BC, although they may have been at the site as early as 3000 BC.

One of the most famous landmarks in the UK, Stonehenge is regarded as a British cultural icon. It has been a legally protected Scheduled Ancient Monument since 1882 when legislation to protect historic monuments was first successfully introduced in Britain. The site and its surroundings were added to UNESCO’s list of World Heritage Sites in 1986. Stonehenge is owned by the Crown and managed by English Heritage; the surrounding land is owned by the National Trust.

Stonehenge could have been a burial ground from its earliest beginnings. Deposits containing human bone date from as early as 3000 BC, when the ditch and bank were first dug, and continued for at least another five hundred years. (Source: Wikipedia)

EXTRAORDINARY PEOPLE

Ed Turowski

wk-50-ed-turowski

There are extraordinary people all around us, we just have to learn a little about the people who we come across to realize just how extraordinary many people are.

I met Ed in the very early 1980 and did busy with him off and on until he passed away in 1997.  He was a fantastic guy, a good honest business man who took pride in his work.  He was the type of person that made America great.

Ed’s father died when he was just four years old. In WWII he was a SEA BEE in the U.S. Navy.  The SEA BEEs were a combat construction unit, responsible for tasks such as underwater piping to fuel naval vessels and airplanes.

THIS WEEK’S JOKE

  1. Hi Bill. That diet day 1 tip made me laugh because it sounds like me all the time. Around the holidays I’m always like, “Tomorrow I’ll be healthy…so today I should definitely eat a slice of cheesecake, three peppermint brownies, and a marshmallow.” haha. Hope you’re doing well and staying warm!

    • I’ve lived with cats for so many years Christy, that I know which one of the fluffy white pets said that 🙂

      I always see the Christmas Carol play each year, but I also like to watch the updated Christmas Carol movie – Scrooged.

      Thank you very much for commenting Christy.
