Moved by Mayflower


And this was a very big move.  Plus 2,131 consecutive what?

Thursday, September 6th, the 250th day of 2012






Today is National Coffee Ice Cream Day. 






On this date in 1620, one-hundred and forty-nine Pilgrims set sail from England aboard the “Mayflower” bound for the New World.  The ship was about 100 feet long.  It must have been very crowded.  Especially the bathroom which was a bucket in the corner.  Yikes!
