Situated over an eroded volcanic pipe in Arkansas, Crater of Diamonds State Park is the world’s only diamond-bearing site open to the public. The park features a 37-acre plowed field where visitors can prospect for diamonds and other gemstones. Moreover, they may keep whatever they find regardless of value. Since the area became a state park in 1972, visitors have taken home more than 25,000 diamonds. In 1924, the largest diamond ever unearthed in the US was found there. How many carats was it?

The Republic of San Marino, a landlocked nation surrounded by Italy, is the smallest republic in the world. The Arengo was its first form of government, under which all of the patriarchs assembled to decide on important matters. March 25 is a national holiday commemorating the Arengo of 1906, which marked the birth of a Parliament elected directly by the people. The military corps appear in full uniform in front of Palazzo Begni; a laurel wreath is placed on the monument to the Fallen, and the ceremony continues with a mass in the Basilica to thank the founder saint, Marinus.

St. Vincent and the Grenadines is a nation comprised of a group of more than 30 islands in the Caribbean Sea, with St. Vincent being the largest. March 14 is National Heroes Day, when citizens honor their national hero, Chief Joseph Chatoyer. He led the nation in preventing the Europeans from colonizing the islands. On March 14, 1795, Chatoyer was killed by British troops at Dorsetshire Hill. A monument honoring Chatoyer stands on this spot; as part of the Heroes Day celebration, a wreath-laying ceremony is held at theobelisk at Dorsetshire Hill. More…Discuss
In February 1855, the Devil, perhaps consumed with wanderlust, apparently took a 40- to 100-mile stroll across Devon, England. His outing might have passed unnoticed, except that it was snowing heavily at the time. When residents awoke, they were dismayed to find unusual cloven hoofprints all over the place—not just on the ground but also on obstacles like walls and even roofs. Of course, it is possible that something other than the Prince of Darkness made these tracks. What are some theories? More…Discuss
I have been walking Northbound until there was no mere North to go to and then I took the opposite direction, found myself upside down hanging by the branches of the Southern tree… I was by exhausted, hungry, unshaven… So I took a long rest next day I started west, and kept at it, for a while and then I hit a bump in the road at Greenwich and had to heal my foot… Then I considered continuing my walk
Late that year I draw a conclusion and build a house of red bricks, a picket fence a kidney bean pool a tennis court a trail with 5 flights of stairs, wooden, to the sandy beach.
Marlene Dietrich (1901-1992) enregistrée le 15 juillet 1933 à Paris.
The French lyrics are quite “benign” but don’t forget that it was the 1930s… If you never heard Dietrich sing, here’s your chance.
De ce que fut mon enfance, Je n’ai plus de souvenirs. C’est peut-être que la chance Ne m’offrit pas de plaisirs. Et chaque jour qui se lève Ne m’apporte aucun espoir. Je n’ai même pas de rêve Quand luit l’etoile du soir.
Moi, je m’ennuie, C’est dans ma vie Une manie. Je n’y peux rien.. Le plaisir passe, Il me dépasse. En moi sa trace Ne laisse rien. Partout je traîne, Comme une chaîne, Ma lourde peine, Sans autre bien. C’est dans ma vie Une manie. Moi, je m’ennuie…
Par de longs vagabondages, J’ai voulu griser mon coeur, Et souvent, sur mon passage, J’ai vu naître des malheurs. Sur chaque nouvelle route, A l’amour j’ai dû mentir ; Et le soir, lorsque j’écoute La plainte du vent mourir…
Moi, je m’ennuie… C’est dans ma vie Une manie. Je n’y peux rien.. Le plaisir passe, Il me dépasse. En moi sa trace Ne laisse rien. Partout je traîne, Comme une chaîne, Ma lourde peine, Sans autre bien. C’est dans ma vie Une manie. Moi, je m’ennuie…

There are also parades, folk dances, processions, and national games. More…Discuss
Ep. 3.THE VOICE OF THE JUNGLE: The protection of Indian cultures, headed by Sidney Pssuelo. This series travels across Brazilian landscapes by way of one of the main links still binding the essence of humanity with the Earth: the Amazon. The filming of the first point of contact with an isolated race, the Zos, the encroachment on areas of the Amazonian forest previously uncaptured on film, the evidence relating to the development of the illegal trafficking of species or the recording of the immeasurable value of Brazil’s natural spaces; these are just excerpts from the series. The underlying theme is the conflict between the development and conservation of one of the key natural areas underpinning the stability of the planet.
In our nature, however, there is a provision, alike marvelous and merciful, that the sufferer should never know the intensity of what he endures by its present torture, but chiefly by the pang that rankles after it.
Hidden beneath the ice sheet that covers much ofGreenland is a vast canyon half a mile (800 m) deep and 470 miles (750 km) in length. By comparison, the Grand Canyon, though deeper, is just 217 miles (349 km) long. The hidden gorge, which has never been seen by human eyes, was discovered by chance as scientists researching climate change mapped Greenland’s bedrock. Now covered by an ice sheet that is 2 miles (3 km) thick at points and is so heavy it causes the entire island of Greenland to sag in the middle, the canyon was likely carved millions of years ago by an ancient river.
