The Historic Buffalo Trace






Source Hoosier National Forest



The first travel way across southern Indiana existed for centuries. While moving from the salt licks of Kentucky to the prairie grass of Illinois, the seasonal migration of the American bison created Indiana’s first highway, called the Buffalo Trace. Varying from 12 to 20 feet wide, the bison in some places on the trace had worn solid rock down to a depth of 12 feet.

Starting near modern- day Clarksville, Indiana, at the Falls of the Ohio, thousands of the bison would come together to cross the Ohio River at its shallowest point. After making the crossing, the bison then blazed a trail across southern Indiana to Vincennes, where they would then cross another river, the Wabash. At this point their trek together would end as they scattered to graze on the Illinois prairie grass...

Independence Day in New York City Rolls in With a Bang




Independence Day in New York City Rolls in With a Bang


Source Vacations Made Easy


Independence Day in New York City rolls in with a bang, as the city celebrates every July 4th with several unparalleled fireworks shows. The three main fireworks displays take place on the East River near Midtown, at South Street Seaport downtown, and on the Hudson in Jersey City at Liberty State Park.

From a high-up vantage point in Manhattan, one would be able to see all three displays at once! However, you may want to pick one location and set up with a picnic and a blanket in a nearby park - locations do fill up fast, so arrive in the afternoon and have fun with your family until sundown.

7 Arguments For Starting This Healthy Ritual





7 Arguments For Starting This Healthy Ritual

  1. Aids Digestion – Acid helps break down food. That’s why there is so much of it in our stomachs. The acid in lemons may be especially helpful to help supplement stomach acids, which decline as we get older.
  2. Helps You Stay Hydrated – Most of us don’t drink enough water. A daily lemon water habit is an easy way to get your day off on the right foot. How to know if you are drinking enough? Your urine is almost clear.
  3. Is Weight Loss Friendly – We’re creatures of habit. Ponder the impact of replacing your morning OJ or latte with lemon water. Not just once, but perhaps 20 times – and multiply that by 10 years. Your waistline will thank you.

The Boston 1755 Cape Ann Earthquake




The 1755 Cape Ann earthquake took place off the coast of the British Province of Massachusetts Bay (present-day Massachusetts) on November 18. At between 6.0 and 6.3 on the Richter scale, it remains the largest earthquake in the history of Massachusetts.

No one was killed, but it damaged hundreds of buildings in Boston and was felt as far north as Nova Scotia and as far south as South Carolina. Sailors on a ship more than 200 miles (320 km) offshore felt the quake, and mistook it at first for their ship running aground.
Many residents of Boston and the surrounding areas attributed the quake to God, and it occasioned a brief increase in religious fervor in the city.
