Today, in the spirit of persistent women, we celebrate this newly discovered photo of Harriet Tubman. She was one of my childhood heroes. (She still is.)

In Siberia, there’s an ice library of dreams. That sounds like the intro to a fantasy novel, but it’s actual news.

Beachcombing’s Bizarre History Blog always has wonderful posts. Here’s one all about Victorian criminal slang. (I like “starring the glaze” for breaking a window. It sounds so elegant!)

If you’re looking to disorient or discombobulate someone, I recommend these Hieronymus Bosch figurines. Extra points if you manage to install tiny recordings in them that go off at random times.

I love travel posters, especially those to fictional or offbeat places. Now there’s one for my hometown! Come see our mythical beast! (Good luck. We’ve never seen it. Hope springs eternal, though.)
