Friday Finds September 2018
As a museum professional, a fire in a museum is truly my worst nightmare ( and I’ve had it a few times). Seeing the images from the fire at Brazil’s National Museum have broken my heart and reading this story about the staff going in to try to save items both inspires & saddens me.
Rhode Island’s Ida Lewis remembered at Arlington Cemetery with street name– the first woman to have a street named after her in the national memorial. She saved dozens of mariners from her post at a lighthouse in the waters off of Newport, RI.
Have you ever wondered who decides the names for each year’s hurricane season?
The homebody economy. I definitely fall into this category, but don’t subscribe or purchase to most of these things.
The exciting and exhausting world of cruise ship entertainers I can’t imagine this type of schedule!
This is just ridiculous and incredibly wasteful- Burberry is only just now ending its practice of burning unsold stock and fabric. I have never worn nor bought this brand and even if I had the money to, I certainly wouldn’t now!
