“Back in March a tiny wooden door was discovered at the base of an elm tree in San Francisco’s Golden Gate Park. The door has become a bit of a destination for park visitors, who have been leaving behind notes, coins, acorns, and other trinkets inside the tree. The mystery door is located in the park Concourse near the De Young Museum and the California Academy of Sciences.”
I cried a little when I saw this photo.
I just found this article from 2 years ago…felt it was worth sharing.
True, the opening of the new In-N-Out Burger locations in Texas is a big deal. For many the event was worthy of overnight camping and long waits in line. But aDallas Morning News video of this momentous event captures one first-day diner shedding actual tears as she makes an emotional statement about her newfound proximity to the burger chain. The woman, a former California resident, says, “pinch me, it just doesn’t feel real,” as she reaches for a napkin to dry her eyes.
Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton announced her support for same-sex marriage today.
Support for the issue has reached a new high in the U.S. A newly released ABC News-Washington Post poll finds 58% of Americans believe gay and lesbian couples should be allowed to wed, up 26% from 2004.

“Phyllis Cudworth, a kindly spokeswoman for In-N-Out, confirms that “someone is playing a fool’s joke on us.” Cudworth says In-N-Out doesn’t have any plans to open locations in NYC. When asked why the hell not, she explained, “We’re a small, family-owned business out here on the West Coast. We grind all our own all beef patties and deliver them to our locations every day, so because of the logistics it’s just not something we’re considering.”“
If you’ve never been to California to see its giant redwoods, you should probably go soon.It might be only a matter of time before they’re all gone. Research released Friday indicates that the world’s oldest trees are dying at an alarming rate. “It is a very, very disturbing trend,” says lead researcher William Laurance of James Cook University. “We are talking about the loss of the biggest living organisms on the planet, of the largest flowering plants on the planet, of organisms that play a key role in regulating and enriching our world.”
Oh no! This is so terrible!!
To give you pause, then chills: How state science standards stack up, according to a new report from The Fordham Institute.
