Joseph "Mad Dog" Sullivan is an American gangster born and raised in Queens, New York. He started committing robberies at age 12, eventually graduating to murder.

Decorations were still homemade at this time until 1850, when fancy glass beads and tinsel made of pure silver (a German creation again, first produced in 1610) started to creep onto the branches. The Rauschgoldengel, angels dressed in gilded tin, became a common sight. Small gifts started to be hung on the branches as well as scattered beneath the tree. by maryellen

When I first started using essential oils, family was quick to point out that they were voodoo and my husband called them snake oils. Over time, I grew to love them, and in many ways, they were life changing - however, as I look back, there are a lot of things I wish I would have known before I got started. by melissagarsia
