Here are the Meanings Behind 19 Classic Sailor Tattoos (I have no way to verify this information, but I was interested in the picture of the 1930s German sailors meeting King Neptune. It's funny to think that during the upcoming war, sailors on both sides were still doing the same silly ritual that sailors do.)

It's going to take a few hours, but you don't need to be there the whole time. You can just wander off and do other things most of it.
Oh! And there's some music. Mute that window entirely if you don't like it, I can't find a way to turn it off.
Pi Cat literally is on a heavy rotation schedule from becoming lightly dampened on her all-weather pillow outside and being inside where there is always the potential for kitty treats if she's lucky. She peers at us through the sidelight on the front door (aka "the catwindow") and goggles in the bevel so it looks kind of crazy, signaling she'd like the door opened pretty much every time she catches anyone's eyes.

Museum visitors who match the artwork.
Remember the case of the girl who was raped at 12, had the child, and then a judge was giving her rapist custody? The judge in the case has reversed his order and will not do it now. And there are apologies from the DA's office. Apparently nobody told the judge until afterward about the guy's two previous "sexual offense" trials, one of which resulted in jail time?
