I can’t believe I finally visited the Winter Palace/Hermitage. It was the last major European Palace on my list. It’s not only a Palace but one of the largest art museums in the world. 100 years ago next week the Bolsheviks gathered in this square, stormed across the gates, and changed history forever. I’m a history geek and feel Travel makes history come alive!

They had to go on... I have always understood and agreed to it... Because Music Never Dies... And what was lost needs to be honored but the simple fact will always remain the same... There was only ONE Ronnie Van Zant... There will NEVER be another to match his beauty and talent... His voice... He is one of those that are so so so heart breaking because I would have really loved to have seen and heard what might have been if only... onthisday #onthisdayinhistory #onthisdayinmusichistory  #musichistory #historychick #history #historygeek #historygirl #historynerd #musichistory #musichistory101 #musiclegend #musicicon #ilovemusic #history #historygirl #historygeek #historynerd #anelephantnvr4gets #lynyrdskynyrdforever

October 20, 1977... 40 Years Ago Today We Lost Ronnie Van Zant, Steve Gaines, Steve's Big Sister Cassie, Manager Dean Kilpatrick, Co-Pilot William Gray, and Pilot Walter McCreary when the private jet carrying Lynyrd Skynyrd crashed in Gillsburg Mississippi. Seriously Injured are Allen Collins, Gary Rossington, Billy Powell, Leon Wilkeson, Artimus Pyle, Tim Hawkins, Manager Ron Eckerman, and members of the road crew. The fact that anything arose from that rubble is a miracle in and of it's self... Everything we got after that was Rock And Roll on borrowed time... I love them all... All 483 members lol...

I had it all prepared... Everything set to celebrate his 67th Birthday... I am still beyond shocked and equally devastated by his recent passing... That's all I can bring myself to say this year... I will be forever grateful for all of it... The Music, Especially Full Moon Fever, and for being The voice of Elroy "Lucky" Kleinschmidt on one of My All Time Favorite Shows King of The Hill... Remembering The Iconic Southern Gentleman that was Tom Petty... Born Thomas Earl Petty 67 years ago today on October 20, 1950 in Gainesville Florida... May he forever Rest In Peace and in The Pages of Southern Rock History...

Getting my #TBT in just before midnight. The Spanish Steps, before the crowds arrived. Had a great guide in Roma, who took me here, and to the Trevi Fountain before all the crowds were there. One day I will return to the city which stole my heart. #roma #nofilter #citytour #spanishsteps #italia #fallday #historygeek #architecture #historical #city #citywalk #citylife

Name: Judy Garland
Birth Date/Death: 1922-1969
Known For: Wizard of Oz and A Star is Born
Their Life: Judy Garland had self doubt on her looks based on what I’ve seen and read. The role she is most known for is Wizard of Oz. She also had other movie roles. It was a song called “Over the Rainbow” that shaped the gay community. Garland faced many problems despite not knowing much about her she did however go through many divorces and I mean 4! Her 5th marriage was her last and only happened on the year of her death. She also had trouble of a overdosage which is the cause of her death. She was only 47 years old. If you asked someone old or young about her today they’ll most likely know her as the girl of Dorothy. Most recently Garland’s remains were moved upon her children’s request to Los Angeles in January 2017. Not only did she sing Over the Rainbow, but also the one of the most famous Christmas songs “Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas”!
My Thoughts: Judy Garland is one or could be my favorite icon of the 20th century. She represented a lot of things and gave us one of the most known films of all time even to this day. Judy Garland is over the rainbow now. 🌈👠 #judygarland #20thcentury #famouspeople #biography #history #historygeek #americanactress #dorothy #thewizardofoz #wizardofoz #astarisborn #meetmeinstlouis #actress #hollywoodicon #gaypride #gaypurree #rip #restinpeace #1900s

This Church is bananas and I can’t quite decide if I’m more obsessed with the interior or exterior. Built in the 1880’s on the site where Tsar Alexander II was mortally wounded during an assassination attempt, it’s facade and exterior is one of the most iconic in Russia

Faa yalo dzwaa gbe.. (Ga)

The one who fetches the water is the one who is likely to break the pot. (English )

Ga (Ghana) Proverb

Background, Explanation, Meaning and Everyday Use

In this Ghanaian proverb the one who fetches the water ("fetches" here refers to going to the river or to a long distance tap) is the one who is likely to break the earthenware pot. If you cannot make any contribution to help in whatever endeavor is going on, then do not sit down and criticize those who have chosen to work hard to help, and who in doing so, make some genuine mistakes.

Biblical Parallels

Luke 6:42: "Or how can you tell your brother, 'Brother, let me remove the speck of chaff that is in your eye,' when you yourself don't see the beam that is in your own eye? You hypocrite! First remove the beam from your own eye, and then you can see clearly to remove the speck of chaff that is in your brother's eye." Matthew 7:1 "Judge not least you be judged." Contemporary Use and Religious Application

No one is perfect so we should not point fingers at others’ imperfections, but rather make it a point to encourage those who are willing to risk everything and to try anything. " -Salome Hammond-

|Fabergé Eggs|⠀
⠀
In 1885, Tsar Alexander III of the Russian Empire decided to give his wife, Maria Fedorovna, a one-of-a-kind present. He commissioned the famous Russian jeweler Peter Carl Fabergé to make an extremely luxurious egg, with a precious gift inside. This first piece was named the 'Hen Egg', and the Tsar's wife was so impressed with his work, that the Imperial Family decided to order 49 more over the next three decades -- that is until 1917, when the Russian Revolution broke out, and the Imperial Family were removed from power.⠀
⠀
Nowadays, only 43 of the original 50 'Imperial Eggs' remain, and as a result of their rarity and prestige, in the rare occasions when they are offered in the market, they are usually sold to private collectors for millions of dollars each. They are the ultimate collector's object of desire, and Queen Elizabeth herself owns three of them.⠀
⠀
The pictured piece is known as the 'Imperial Napoleonic Egg', and was made as a gift from Tsar Nicholas II to his mother, Empress Maria. It is crafted out of solid gold, emerald panels, rubies, and diamonds on its exterior. The interior is lined in satin and velvet, and its 'surprise' was a six-panel miniature screen depicting six regiments of which Empress Maria was an horonary colonel.

On this day in 1951, the Brooklyn Daily Eagle front page reported “More Police Heads to Roll,” as NYC Police Commissioner George P. Monaghan seized his department in a shakedown to flush out corruption. Already, three inspectors had resigned, submitting their retirement papers. Monaghan promised the press more disclosures as he solidified his plan to reorganize NYPD … Meanwhile, Anthony Anastasio, a labor leader with the International Longshoremen’s Union (ILA), was stoking a wildcat strike. The previous week, Anastasio had put a halt to the strike at the Brooklyn Army base but now he seemed to be doing the reverse action. In what the Eagle described as a “flying squadron,” Anastasio pulled men off the job at the Erie Basin. The ILA building on Court Street was dedicated to the union leader but was torn down in 2010. The residential development constructed at the site ironically used non-union labor.

Built in 1790, the #spraguemansion was home to William Sprague, a wealthy industrialist and founder of the A&W Sprague company. Upon converting a small grist mill on the Pocasset River in Cranston, Rhode Island, into a textile mill, the Spragues would go on to be at the forefront of the momentous expansion of the Rhode Island textile industry for the majority of the 19th Century.

In continuous operation since 1807, the Cranston Printworks is one of many mills throughout the Pawtuxet River Valley that I explore on bicycle in my upcoming documentary about the industrialization of America--starting in Rhode Island.

On this day in 1982, the automaker John Z. DeLorean is arrested and charged with conspiracy to obtain and distribute 55 pounds of cocaine. 
DeLorean was acquitted of the drug charges in August 1984, but his legal woes were only beginning. He soon went on trial for fraud and over the next two decades was forced to pay millions of dollars to creditors and lawyers. Nevertheless, DeLorean occupies an important place in automotive history: 
Thanks to its starring role in the 1985 film “Back to the Future,” his gull-wing sports car is one of the most famous cars in the world.
But not many people actually bought a DeLorean car. They were much too expensive: Each one cost $25,000, compared with $10,000 for the average car and $18,000 for a souped-up Corvette. The company’s financial trouble, DeLorean’s attorneys argued, was the reason the FBI had been able to entrap him in the $24 million drug deal–the authorities knew he would do anything to save his business.

When the world is quiet, and dawn is yet to break ... I hold all of the everythings. Everything that ever and never was. All the stories turned inside out.  Those stories, I think I know and therefore think I own, disappear into the mouths of vultures. And there is nothing left but me and the pre-dawn truth, echoing everything I do not know.

Pigeons played a vital part in World War One as they proved to be an extremely reliable way of sending messages. Such was the importance of pigeons that over 100,000 were used in the war with an astonishing success rate of 95% getting through to their destination with their message
(Marty is that you?)
________________________________

Pigeons were used extensively in World War One. Man-made communication systems were still crude and unreliable, so dogs and pigeons were used. Pigeons would have been found just about anywhere on the Western Front. At the First Battle of the Marne in 1914, French troops stopped the German advance on Paris. As the French troops advanced and pushed back the Germans, so their pigeons advanced with them. In the heat and disorientation of battle, pigeons proved to be the best way of sending messages to the French headquarters. At the Marne, the French had 72 pigeon lofts. As the French advanced, the lofts advanced with them – but many of the pigeons were ‘on duty’ carrying messages and could never have known where their loft had moved to. Incredibly, all the pigeons at the Marne returned to their lofts – despite the fact that they would have flown ‘blind’ not knowing where their loft was.
________________________________

In October 1918, as the war neared its end, 194 American soldiers found themselves trapped by German soldiers. They were cut off from other Allied soldiers and had no working radios. The only chance they had of alerting anybody about their desperate situation was to send a pigeon with their co-ordinates attacked to its leg. The pigeon’s name was Cher Ami. When released it flew 25 miles from behind German lines to the Americans headquarters. Cher Ami covered the 25 miles in just 25 minutes. The pigeon was, in fact, shot through the chest by the Germans but continued to fly home. With the “Lost Battalion’s” co-ordinates, the Americans launched a rescue and the 194 men were saved. Cher Ami was awarded the Croix de Guerre with Palm for its astonishing flight. As with other pigeons, it would not have known where the American’s nearest headquarters was – its natural homing instincts took over.

1961. A YOUNG EAST GERMAN POLICE OFFICER JUMPS THE WALL ON THE LAST DAY OF ITS CONSTRUCTION

Conrad Schumann was a 19-year-old state police officer in East Berlin. On August 15, 1961, Soviets were at their third day of building the wall. At that time, the divide was made of a single coil of barbed wire. His task was to check the strength of barbed wire coils in his area.

There was a gap. With his foot, he managed to put down some barbed wire. He looked back, then glanced to the West. Some West Germans yelled “ Komm' rüber!” (Come over!). As he jumped over the barbed wire, he dropped his machine gun (as we can see him doing in the picture). He left everything behind and ran towards them. A West German police car quickly drove him away from the border.

He now considers his home to be Bavaria, where he settled down and married.

It's a photograph called Peter Leibing that walked on the same street as he heard the people yelling at Conrad. He caught him on tape exactly as he jumped.

This is what the Knysna Heads looked like in 1911. Only three ships entered the Heads in that year, the Swedish Brig the Albatross, and the Whalers Mossel & Viking. John Benn Junior was the pilot at the Heads at the time. He took over from his father in 1877, and retired in 1912. #tbt #drydockknysna #longago #historygeek #historypics #knysna #gardenroute #southafricaza

@Regranned from @europeanmilitaryhistory - Um grupo de fuzileiros navais dos Estados Unidos e um médico da Marinha levantam a bandeira no topo do Monte Suribachi na ilha de Iwo Jima neste exato dia, 72 anos atrás. ---------------------------------------------
A batalha de Iwo Jima foi uma luta muito difícil para as tropas dos EUA. Os soldados japoneses foram cavados, tinham túneis subterrâneos e bunkers sobre a ilha.
---------------------------------------------
Havia 21.000 soldados japoneses estacionados na ilha, mas apenas 216 foram presos.
O exército dos EUA teve 6.800 mortes e 19.200 feridos.

I have always loved ancient history, so when I was in Athens, I visited the mountain (100% think its velaris) where the Acropolis is. I couldn't stop myself! I found these gorgeous statues that will look gorgeous on my new, customized bookshelf and display shelf when I return from my travels sometime next year!  soo.... The white and gold bust is of Artemis (daughter of Zeus, goddess of the hunt, also known as the goddess of wild animals, wilderness, chuldbirth and virginity), the greenish rusted statue is Aphrodite ( goddess of love, beauty, pleasure and procreation) , other silver girl statue is Venus (another version of Aphrodite), and lastly Zeus ( god of the sky and of the olympian gods), along with two greek coins 🎃🎃🎃🎃🎃🎃🎃🎃🎃🎃🎃🎃🎃🎃🎃🎃🎃🎃 Happy Halloween Month!!!! 🎃🎃🎃🎃🎃🎃🎃🎃🎃🎃🎃🎃🎃🎃 anybody else love ancient histories?! ✨✨✨✨✨✨✨✨✨✨✨✨✨✨#ancient #history #statues #zeus #artemis #venus #aphrodite #greece #greek #ancientgreece #god #goddess #religion #ancienthistory #athens #photography #historygeek #acropolis

Did you know that in 1777 Morocco was the VERY FIRST nation in the world to officially recognize USA independence. Negotiations on a formal treaty to establish ties between the two countries began in 1783. The Moroccan-American Treaty of Friendship was signed in 1786. How cool is that?!?! 😁📚✒️🇺🇲🌍🇲🇦 #historygeek #knowledgeispower #worldview #lifemovesfast #globalcommunity #digitalnomad #foreverlearning
