Places to visit
Flying Horses Carousel-The carousel is believed to have been built 1876 by the Charles W. Dare Company of New York. It was part of a traveling carnival until 1879 when the carnival was forced to abandon the carousel in Watch Hill. Unlike most carousels, there is no wooden platform to support the horses but rather, they are suspended from chains. As a result, the horses seem to "fly" as the ride increases speed, hence the carousel's name.

This intriguing photo was taken in the Parish Church Hall in Lyme Regis, England, in 2005. Despite being connected to the church & being used by American troops during World War II, up to now there have been no reports of any paranormal activity.

There was no one of that name in the group or in the ...
Interesting family story of momento mori. The photo on the left is the bloggers maternal great-grandfather, George. George had a twin sister that died in infancy. No photo was taken of her so to remedy that, they dressed George as a girl (which he looks pretty unhappy about) so they could ostensibly have a photo of the deceased daughter too.
