The French Banksy of Fake Facades – I want this fellow to come paint the building we live in now! Take a moment to browse his work!

Tens of Thousands of Artifacts Have Been Found in Colonial Philadelphia Toilets

Lin-Manuel Miranda takes the ‘Hamilton’ stage one last time – So very grateful I got to see this show with its original cast last Friday – not to mention, go backstage. And exceedingly thankful for all Lin-Manuel Miranda has done to get young people excited about history. MacArthur genius, Pulitzer, a pile of Tony awards – the list goes on. Can’t wait to see what he does next once he has a chance to catch his breath.

Lin-Manuel Miranda: When good things happen to good people – Yeah, still fan-girling Lin-Manuel Miranda, but maybe this article will help folks understand why.

Penzión Európa – For my fellow Osturnites and travelers! Wow! Can’t believe this! Thom Kolton opened Penzion Europa in Osturna, Slovakia (where all the Smolenyaks and about 50 other families come from). And it’s even got free wifi & parking. The village is beautiful (no bias whatsoever), so if you’re looking for a little R&R – biking, hiking, rafting, time travel – that kind of thing – please go check it out!

86-Year-Old Woman Celebrates Birthday With 86th Great-Grandchild – Some poor genealogist is probably experiencing finger cramps from all the data entry, but for a sweet reason.

Danny Dyer joins Amanda Holden and Cheryl on Who Do You Think You Are? – Ooh, Sir Ian McKellen! Should be a good season!
