Fairy Circles, Namibia- Fairy circles are mysterious patches of bare soil that appear in otherwise lush African grassland. Fly from Angola to South Africa and you’ll see thousands of these patches, which can sometimes measure 30 feet across. Scientists believe that termites live under these circles and consume the vegetation within, so that rain keeps the soil moist.
The Rev. Herman D. "Preacher" Dennis (1916 - Sept. 4, 2012) turned a Mississippi Delta grocery store into a folk-art castle that became a roadside attraction. Margaret's Grocery started as a modest store north of Vicksburg, Mississippi. Margaret Rogers Dennis had owned the store nearly 40 years when she married "Preacher" in 1984, and he said he'd build a monument to her and their faith in God.
