When the pyramids were being built, there were still woolly mammoths.
The last use of the guillotine was in France the same year Star Wars came out.
Oxford University was over 300 years old when the Aztec Empire was founded.
I know it’s less of a shock if you read His Last Bow, but it does blow my mind a bit that there’s an entire collection of ACD Holmes stories that were written and published after World War I.

When I look down at this golden statue, may it remind me and every little child that no matter where you’re from, your dreams are valid. Thank you.
Exquisite portraits of Marina Dieul
Marina Dieul was born in France ( 1971) into a family of French and Canadian artists ( her father’s uncle was the renowned Canadian painter Clarence Gagnon ) She began visiting European museums at a young age. It was during these visits that she absorbed the talent of the great masters. She quite naturally followed her artistic vocation and completed her studies in Fine Arts in France . She received her diploma with distinction, the jury recognizing in particular the quality of and commitment
to her work. Her focus is primarily Still Life, Trompe I’Oeil and Portraiture. Her mastery of painting and drawing techniques allows her to go beyond mere likeness to express the interiority of her model.
Derek & Stiles for Beth!

This heart-warming display of affection took place in Port Lockroy, a natural harbour in the Antarctic Peninsula. It was captured on camera by professional photographer Silviu Ghetie. The pair stand hand in hand appearing to stare out at the dramatic vista of the frozen Antarctic landscape and even get the cold shoulder from a passerby. Then, still holding each other, they wander down to the icy waters and the rest of their friends. Article |
Leiva tweeted this photo with the message: Bonito reportaje a mi amigo @eGranero11 en @diariovasco . Emocionante su poema “El Embarcadero” aquí podéis leerlo. (Great writing by my friend Esteban in Diario Vasco. Thrilling is his poem ‘The Pier’ which you can read here.)
Barefoot on wood,
shakes his wings and rises
The lost girl thinks,
there are fish in the sea
though it is cold and raining.
Only the wise light from the lighthouse
warns the tear that falls
her whole face is wet
It points at the sea depths
and warns of the rocks,
for the child to see them.
The wind brings the night,
the salt reaches
her black gown which flaps.
Looking up to the sky
and see rain
is to be the bird that flies.
"You see a different side of Derek you've never seen before."
