#seahorse research for my next #painting ❤️ finding some #funfacts such as male might travel as little as 3 feet their whole lives. No wonder males mate for life. I don't think anyone will find much variety within 3 feet 😆
#tbt to blue skies while crossing over the St. Johns bridge. Did you know that upon completion in #1931 , this beautiful structure was the longest suspension-type bridge west of the Mississippi? With its' dual gothic towers, the St. Johns bridge is the tallest bridge in Portland! #funfacts#portlandbridges
It's Educational Time!! These first five pictures you see are the eggs of a aquatic Ramshorn Snail. The 6 and 7th are the adult stages of these snails. Most aquatic hobbyists consider these snails a a pest I and I try everything to kill them. They claim the snails eat their plants and over populate the tanks. Those claims are false. These snails only eat rotting or sick plants, their teeth happen to be too weak to eat healthy plant matter. And the only reason they may overpopulate your tank is because you feed them and your fish too much. They also are like a little clean up crew they eat dead fish too. And when they die the other snails eat their bodies and then the shells get ground up over time and become a natural part of the substrate, which in turn helps the plants. Did I mention they are also hermaphrodites! I found one snail in my tank once, more than likely hitched a ride on a plant, and now I've had many generations of theses snails and I would never have another fish I tank without them. I love learning things like this I think it's so cool and interesting to see how things work! *5 and 7th picture aren't mine*
Time for some Van Hagar, I mean, Van Halen!!! I love Diamond Dave, but I am partial to Sammy, because I grew up during his era and his time with Van Halen. This song in particular brings back time in the early 90s when my childhood was great and times were simpler... This song paid homage to Ray Charles and was about love and friendship... This song was also written by all the members of the band...
On this day in 1957 under escort from the U.S. Army’s 101st Airborne Division, nine black students enter all-white Central High School in Little Rock, Arkansas. A mob of 400 white civilians gathered and turned ugly when the black students began to arrive, shouting racial epithets and threatening the teenagers with violence.
This week’s #MineralMonday features beryl, the mineral that gives us the gem varieties aquamarine and emerald. Beryl is also a source of the light metal beryllium. These large, single crystals of beryl are from the pegmatite rocks found in the Black Hills of South Dakota. The largest single beryl crystal ever found there had a maximum dimension of 3.8 feet. But, a beryl crystal discovered in Madagascar was measured at 59 feet in length and 11.5 feet in diameter!
Although I typically steer clear of touristy places, when I got to Romania I knew I had to check out the real Dracula's Castle ... the secret passageways and the epic views were great but most interesting of all was learning that the horror monster Count Dracula was half based off of a woman .. Hungarian royalty Elizabeth Batory who was a super bad serial murderer accused of killing over 650 young women in Transylvania. But the original writer felt that a man would be a more suitable monster ( go figure 😜) so he decided to use Vlad Dracula - also considered a merciless killer but more of a Robin Hood type ruler - to be the face of his character. INTERESTING RIGHT?!
So after remembering that my shoes literally have pockets it's been a nice adventure everyday remembering what the hell my silly ass put in them the day before. So far it's been a gym key, 75 cents, and a reminder note that I literally have pockets in my shoes... Yeah I do really random shit lol.
More #capitolbuilding pictures. Of course we got our picture with Ronald Reagan's statue. The cat prints are from when the rats invaded and cats were introduced to eliminate the problem. The Lincoln statue is said to be the most representative of him. The coolest statue is the white one with the women representing the first fighter's for woman's rights. It is unfinished waiting for the first female president. #feminism#capitol#funfacts#washingtondc
How fun are handstands?! Intimidating yes but hey...aint no shame in doing them against a wall to get yourself started.Why do I like the old Handstand? A couple of reasons (shock horror): . 💪 They help to build a crazy strong upper body, . 💪 Helps with building your core strength, . 💪 Helps to improve and Increase balance, . 💪 Helps bone health, circulation and breathing. .
Wait..what? back it up...what do you mean by that last point, I hear you scream. Well, when you are upside down in a handstand, your normal blood flow inverts which increases circulation to your upper body. They also benefit bone health in your spine, wrists, arms and shoulders. Fun fact...the breathing thing, handstands actually stretch your diaphragm...aka your main breathing muscle...which in turn increases blood flow to your lungs. .
BOOM. Go do some handstands.
The Mist (2007) - THE LOCATION OF WHERE THE FILM TAKES PLACE WAS SHOT IN A COMPLETELY DIFFERENT STATE. Despite the setting in Maine, the film was shot entirely in Minden, Louisiana. To director, Frank Darabont's delight, Stephen King could not distinguish it from Maine when watching the film. STEPHEN KING HAS SEVERAL EASTER EGGS HIDDEN THROUGHOUT THE FILM. During an action scene in the film, a man runs into a wire rotating-book shelf in the grocery store. If you look carefully, you can clearly see that all the books on the shelf are written by Stephen King. 📽🎞🌫👽
