Come on & get to know history and style Did you know, JACKS have been around forever Woman sometimes threw knucklebones jacks to find out who whether the man they liked felt the same about them, along the same lines as pulling the petals off a daisy while saying “He loves me, he loves me not.” In ancient Greece, unmarried women who played Knucklebones were thought to be placing themselves in the hands of Aphrodite, the goddess of love, who would choose a suitable mate. ancientegypt ancientgreece antique jacks games timeless mindblown classic vintage vintagehome sheshed sparkle helovesme interiordesign interiordesigner interior create followyourheart

Our newest conservation volunteer, Arianna, is in the process of cleaning one of the ussmonitor gun tools :) She's using localized ultrasound (same tool our dental hygienists use!) to get rid of marine accretions and metallic stains. This rammer is made of wood, copper and rope, a really neat piece Arianna recently relocated to Hampton Roads from North Carolina where she was one of the conservators working on the Queen Anne's Revenge shipwreck! ⚓💪 ussmonitor shipwreck archaeology history science conservation conservationinaction marinersmuseum gun tool wood composite copper rope queenannesrevenge

दिवसामागुन दिवस गेले शतकामागुन शतके गेली तरीही काळरात्र काही संपत नव्हती.आजूबाजूची राजकीय परिस्थिती,गुलामी,विस्कळीत समाज. शहाजी राजे म्हणजे एक असे व्यक्तिमत्व की,ज्यांच्या कर्तुत्वाचा डंका अखंड हिंदुस्थानात वाजत होता.तरीही त्यांचे स्वतंत्र राज्याचे स्वप्न पूर्ण होत नव्हते. परंतु त्याचा पाया नक्कीच त्यांनी भरला होता.अशा परिस्थितीत जिजाऊ माँसाहेबांची असलेली मानसिकता व त्यावेळी त्यांच्या मनाची चाललेली घालमेल इथेच शिवाजी महाराजांच्या संस्काराची सुरुवात झाली होती.अशा या राजकीय आणि लाचारीच्या दिवसात शिवनेरीवर एक युगपुरुष जन्माला आला.हा दिवस या हिंदुस्थानातील सुवर्णदिवस होता. १८०० वर्षांची काळरात्र संपविण्यासाठीच हा युगपुरुष जन्माला आला होता. shivjayanti shivajimaharaj jayshivajijaybhavani maratha marathas maharashtra india world legends great leadership brave history wars proud top photooftheday photo photography instagood tbt instadaily instagram art marathas96

Do not praise me for my exceptional serenity. Can't you see I've turned away from the large excitements, and have accepted all the troubles? Go down to the old cemetery; you'll see there's nothing definitive to be said. The dead once were all kinds boundary breakers and scalawags, martyrs of the flesh, and so many dumb bunnies of duty, unbearably nice. I've been a little of each. And, please, resist the temptation of speaking about virtue. The seldom-tempted are too fond of that word, the small- spirited, the unburdened. Know that I've admired in others only the fraught straining to be good. Adam's my man and Eve's not to blame. He bit in; it made no sense to stop. Still, for accuracy's sake you might say I oftened stopped, that I rarely went as far as I dreamed. And since you know my hardships, understand that they're mere bump and setback against history's horror. Remind those seated, perhaps weeping, how obscene it is for some of us to complain. Tell them I had second chances. I knew joy. I was burned by books early and kept sidling up to the flame. Tell them that at the end I had no need for God, who'd become just a story I once loved, one of many with concealments and late-night rescues, high sentence and pomp. The truth is I learned to live without hope as well as I could, almost happily, in the despoiled and radiant now. You who are one of them, say that I loved my companions most of all. In all sincerity, say that they provided a better way to be alone. stephendunn favorite differenthours poem worldpoetryday nyc love secondchance joy history hope life
