      Recent research suggests that there was contact between the Native Indians and the Greeks, long before America was "discovered". Here we see an Achomawi baby, wrapped in a traditional folded Feta cheese blanket and Eucalyptus leaves, ready to pop in the oven in the Greek style. ( Shocking? Well, the odd ways and appetites of the Achomawi can possibly be explained by their location .... Northern California, home of 90% of the weirds in the world)

    A forgotten profession: In the days before alarm clocks were widely affordable, people like Mary Smith of Brenton Street were employed to rouse sleeping people in the early hours of the morning. They were commonly known as ‘knocker-ups’ or ‘knocker-uppers’. Mrs. Smith was paid sixpence a week to shoot dried peas at market workers’ windows in Limehouse Fields, London.

    "Jazz trumpeteer Valaida Snow.She was named “Little Louis” after Louis Armstrong himself, who used to call her the world’s second best jazz trumpet player besides himself. She played concerts throughout the USA, Europe and China. Later she became addicted to morphine. While touring through Denmark in 1941, she was arrested by the Nazis and probably kept at Vestre Fængsel, a Danish prison in Copenhagen that was run by the Nazis, before being released on a prisoner exchange in May 1942."
