Magpie Monday

Welcome to my new column, Magpie Monday, which is usually published on Mondays. But I ran away with my daughter yesterday to tour a college.  You understand, don’t you?  I’m sharing a little of this and that from my wanderings on the web last week.  Enjoy.

The most haunted places in the U.S. , or so they say.

What’s not on display at the museums.

A fabulous digital model of ancient Rome.

Victorian doctors thought reading novels could make women insane.

While researching my historical novel (Memory of Light, coming soon!), I became enamored with milk punch. When Jefferson Coates was recovering in the hospital, this is what they gave him–along with beef “essence.”

A writer who paints gorgeous eggs.

See you next time!

    The British Museum is looking for interns for the Summer….for just this much STUFF in the basement…that needs sorting…marking…and MAYBE put on display! My son was saying how the Smithsonian has so much donated to them..and they have it all stashed ! No room to show..barely room to show..and not much is sorted.!
