It’s a quiet snowy day. The university is on spring break so Rand has the day off but the kids are at school. We’ve cleaned our bathroom; stuck dinner in the crockpot and gone grocery shopping. Now, we’re enjoying the peaceful afternoon with some good books. 📚 D-Day Girls by Sarah Rose just arrived today and I am looking forward to reading the history of the women spies who helped win WWII. @crownpublishing #bookstagram #booklover #amreading #snowing #DDayGirls #SarahRose #CrownPublishing #books #history #WWII

Boat view of San Marco Square - Venice - Italy It is situated across a group of 118 small islands that are separated by canals and linked by over 400 bridges. The islands are located in the shallow Venetian Lagoon, an enclosed bay that lies between the mouths of the Po and the Piave rivers (more exactly between the Brenta and the Sile). Parts of Venice are renowned for the beauty of their settings, their architecture, and artwork. The lagoon and a part of the city are listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site. In 2018, 260,897 people resided in Comune di Venezia, of whom around 55,000 live in the historical city of Venice (Centro storico). The name is derived from the ancient Veneti people who inhabited the region by the 10th century BC. The city was historically the capital of the Republic of Venice. Venice has been known as the "La Dominante", "Serenissima", "Queen of the Adriatic", "City of Water", "City of Masks", "City of Bridges", "The Floating City", and "City of Canals." The 697–1797 Republic of Venice was a major financial and maritime power during the Middle Ages and Renaissance, and a staging area for the Crusades and the Battle of Lepanto, as well as a very important center of commerce (especially silk, grain, and spice) and art in the 13th century up to the end of the 17th century. The city-state of Venice is considered to have been the first real international financial center, emerging in the 9th century and reaching its greatest prominence in the 14th century. This made Venice a wealthy city throughout most of its history. It is also known for its several important artistic movements, especially the Renaissance period. After the Napoleonic Wars and the Congress of Vienna, the Republic was annexed by the Austrian Empire, until it became part of the Kingdom of Italy in 1866, following a referendum held as a result of the Third Italian War of Independence. Venice has played an important role in the history of sympho. #venezia #venice #realvenice #beautifulcity #history #top #nature #boat #boatview #italy #venitian #ghesboro #rdemarghera #topcityinthewholeworld #sanmarco #square #blue #lagoon #sunset
Forst è attualmente il maggiore produttore indipendente d'Italia, la sua storia comincia nel 1857, quando viene fondato il birrificio da Johann Wallnofer e Franz Tappeiner. Nel 1863 Forst viene acquistato da Josef Fuchs,sotto la cui direzione comincia un'ascesa importante nel panorama dei birrifici italiani. All' inizio del secolo si superano i 20mila hl l'anno, vantando tra l'altro diverse innovazioni strutturali, come il complesso delle cantine di maturazione, costruite nella roccia e considerate un capolavoro tecnologico per l’epoca. Nel 1933 le redini di Forst passano nelle mani di Luis Fuchs, nipote di Josef, il quale resta alla conduzione dell'azienda per oltre cinquant'anni. Fu un periodo di grande successo, ma anche di difficoltà legate alla Seconda Guerra Mondiale. Nel 1991 l'azienda ha acquisito il marchio Menabrea lasciandone tuttavia inalterata l’autonomia gestionale. Forst è uno dei marchi storici italiani, e , pur essendo un birrificio industriale, non rientra nel novero delle multinazionali del settore ; è infatti apprezzato anche dai consumatori di prodotti artigianali.

Dollhouses (or dollshouses) have a long history that many of today's modern doll collectors don't know about. The first wooden dollhouses can be traced as far back as Ancient Egypt where, most likely, they were used for religious purposes. The classic dollhouses we know today, like the one in the image, started to be commissioned in the 16th century by the very wealthy, in countries such as Holland, Germany, and the UK. The one we are admiring now can be seen live in the Rijksmuseum Amsterdam and belonged to Petronella Dunois, a very wealthy Dutch art collector. And yes, you needed to be very wealthy to afford such a detailed miniature house. These houses could cost as much as a modest real life house so definitely they were not for everybody. More than this, they were a form of social statement. The more detailed they were, the wealthier the owner was. For each of these houses several craftsmen were hired. Silversmiths were commissioned to work on the small metal objects, tailors created all the rugs, drapes etc, and cabinetmakers worked on the furniture and the frame of the house. When the industrial revolution happened, a lot of doll and toy companies started mass producing doll houses. There are several UK toy companies worth mentioning: Silber & Fleming, Evans & Cartwright, and Lines Brothers. But the most collectible and prized doll houses even to this day are the ones produced in Germany. They also produced individual rooms and shops, not only entire houses. The best known companies are Christian Hacker, Gottschalk, Märklin, Rock and Graner, and many others. Unfortunately, the second world war ment the end of the production of such miniature marvels in Germany. After the war, things changed completely. The doll houses became widely available and were made of thin metal sheets, paper, and later plastic. What are your favorite dollhouses?

#Repost @ruxspizzle_ : In #1997 the debut hit single #CantNobodyHoldMeDown by rapper Sean #PuffDaddy Combs (featuring #Mase ) started a six week run at No.1 on the Billboard Top 100, his first US No.1 from his debut album #NoWayOut The song combined elements of several previous singles, the most obvious being a slowed-down rhythm track sampled from #GrandmasterFlashAndTheFuriousFive 's #TheMessage ,  a slowed down sample of #MichaelJackson ’s drum roll intro from #RockWithYou and the track's chorus is an interpolation of “#BreakMyStride ", a top-five single by #MatthewWilder . It was the beginning of Combs' and #BadBoyRecords ' chart domination during the year as the Combs-produced "Hypnotize" by The Notorious B.I.G. would follow this song at number one. #TWIMH #music #history #musichistory #onthisday #thisdayinhistory #90s

The princes in the Tower were Edward V, King of England and Richard of Shrewsbury, Duke of York. They were the sons of Edward lV and Elizabeth Woodville. In 1483 Edward lV died and their uncle Richard, Duke of Gloucester, imprisoned the princes in the Tower of London. Actually Edward V was the heir to the throne, but Richard took the throne for himself and ascended the throne as Richard lll. The princes disappeared in the Tower and were never seen again. Richard lll was killed during the battle of Bosworth in 1485 and Henry Vll ascended the throne. In 1674 workmen at the Tower found children bones in a box under a staircase in the Tower of London, but it's not proven that this bones are actually from the princes. But it's possibly. ----------------------------------------------------------- #princesinthetower #edward5 #heirtothethrone #richardofshrewsbury #richard3 #disappeared #toweroflondon #1400s #1480s #history

@ruxspizzle_ with @ezrepostapp In #1963  #TheBeatles ' first album, #PleasePleaseMe was released in the #UK #Parlophone rush-released the album to capitalise on the success of the singles "Please Please Me” (No. 1 on most lists but only No. 2 on Record Retailer) and #LoveMeDo (No. 17). Of the album's 14 songs, eight were written by #JohnLennon#PaulMcCartney (originally credited "McCartney–Lennon"), early evidence of what Rolling Stone later called "[their invention of] the idea of the self-contained rock band, writing their own hits and playing their own instruments." #TWIMH #music #history #musichistory #onthisday #thisdayinhistory #60s

#Repost @ruxspizzle_ : In #1978 #ThePolice signed to A&M Records, committing to a contract that gave the group a higher royalty rate in lieu of a large advance. They released the smash hit "#Roxanne " in the spring of 1978, but it failed to chart. The Police set out on a tour of America in the summer of 1978 without any record to support, traveling across the country in a rented van and playing with rented equipment. Released in the fall of 1978, #OutlandosDAmour began a slow climb into the British Top Ten and American Top 30. The band went on to score over 15 UK Top 40 hits with the label including the worldwide #1#EveryBreathYouTake#TWIMH #music #history #musichistory #onthisday #thisdayinhistory #70s

In 1865 during the first ascent, the 7 climbers reached the top of the Matterhorn. They started the return but 100m down, one climber fell, 3 others followed. The rope broke under the weight and killed the 4 climbers. This is the rope they used. Pic. 2: objects from the fallen climbers. #matterhorn #zermatt #museum #tragedy #climbers #cervin #first #ascent #alpinism #history

Gustaff de Riggs, el monarca de un pequeño reino al norte de Europa, era inmensamente rico... Tanto que incluso sus súbditos estaban contentos por la prosperidad de la zona... aunque nunca nadie sabía cómo reunió tanto poder y tanto oro en tan poco tiempo... Le llamaban "El Rey Azul"... De todos sus tesoros, el más preciado por el Rey era un pequeño cofre de oro que tenía en sus aposentos y que se decía que estaba embrujado... aunque nadie sabía resolver el enigma. Sus criados murmuraban en tabernas de la ciudadela (sobre todo después de algunas jarras de vino) que ese cofre contenía una pequeña lámpara de aceite.... Alguien dijo que se la robaron a un acaudalado extranjero llamado Aladino... Todos creían que no era más que un recuerdo sin valor...
