"The photo shown is a good application location for MANY protocols, especially when using essential oils for headache, anxiety and ADD/ADHD protocols. The suboccipital triangle is in close proximity to arterial blood flow to the brain and key neurological tissue."  I've often tried to tell people in words where I used to apply oils for a migraine (I don't get them anymore) and it was hard to explain. This photo does a great job showing the location. by leannasuzanna

1966 Ford Mustang Retractable - The retractable system was originally designed by Ben Smith, a Ford engineer who had successfully introduced the 1957 through 1959 Skyliner. Ford commissioned him to build one Mustang retractable. Ford decided not to proceed with the retractable program, because they were having such a big success with the other versions of the Mustang. Ben Smith later produced a kit to make retractables from coupes. by ladonna

The Middle Ages showed a renewed interest in labyrinths and a design more complex than the classical seven-circuit labyrinth became popular.

This was an eleven-circuit design divided into four quadrants. It was often found in Gothic Cathedrals but over time many of these eleven-circuit designs were destroyed or intentionally removed.

The most famous of these remaining labyrinths is at Chartres Cathedral near Paris, France. The labyrinth at Chartres was built around 1200 and is laid into the floor in a style sometimes referred to as a pavement maze. The original center piece has been removed and other areas of the labyrinth have been restored.

This labyrinth was meant to be walked but is reported to be infrequently used today. In the past it could be walked as a pilgrimage and/or for repentance. As a pilgrimage it was a questing, searching journey with the hope of becoming closer to God. When used for repentance the pilgrims would walk on their knees. Sometimes this eleven-circuit labyrinth would serve as a substitute for an actual pilgrimage to Jerusalem and as a result came to be called the "Chemin de Jerusalem" or Road of Jerusalem.

In walking the Chartres style labyrinth the walker meanders through each of the four quadrants several times before reaching the goal. An expectancy is created as to when the center will be reached. At the center is a rosette design which has a rich symbolic value including that of enlightenment. The four arms of the cross are readily visible and provide significant Christian symbolism. by juliet

Chicago’s Police Department’s first female officers, 1913  The starting salary of a policewoman in 1913 was $ 75 a month, and each officer was assigned an area to patrol—often a beach, park, bus terminal, railroad station, or dancehall. Their duties included protecting girls from unsavory types who might lure them into danger and arresting girls for wearing questionable swimming costumes at the local beaches.

Christians often say they are told to circumcise by the Bible. Unbeknownst to many, circumcision in Biblical times was not performed as it is today. The entire foreskin was not removed. A cut to spill blood or the slight tip was removed, and the foreskin still covered the glans of the penis.  Today’s form of circumcision was made popular by Dr. Kellogg in the Victorian age (and yes, the cereal Kellogg) as a means to prevent boys from masturbating. by rhea
