I have the song “When Johnny Comes Marching Home” stuck in my head, whistling and all. It’s quite odd. On that note, there’s a small plot of land along a road I frequently drive down (and bike) and I just recently (after 10 years in Tally) noticed that it was once a cemetery for – I believe – African Americans, perhaps in the Civil War. I need to read the Historic Registry sign one of these days; this place intrigues me.
Also, while in Jacksonville, we drove past this stately looking building, although now long since closed and run down, which read “Public School Number Four.” I wasn’t aware that anywhere in Florida named their public schools by number, much as they do in New York, etc. I typed it into Google and look what comes up first:PS#4. Very interesting; I should have known. I can’t seem to find any info on it besides articles about it being haunted.
Last night I was pondering igloos. I always thought: how is it any warmer in there than otuside? But I guess some people put skins in the inside which could raise the temp as much as 50 degrees F. I also wondered about having a fire in there but apparently the way it melted created a layer of ice which helped reinforce its structure. (All info gathered from various web sources).
Also, has anyone heard of Okienoodling? I just found out about it and, sure, you can google it, but if you know it already, I’m interested to know.
