Ode to July

Here men from the planet Earth first set foot upon the Moon.
July 1969 AD.
We came in peace for all mankind.... 
The Eagle has landed...
one small step for man; one giant leap for mankind.
-Neil Armstrong, 1930-2012, Astronaut,  Apollo 11 Mission Commander

Forty five years ago,  man set foot on the moon
and the world was forever changed

R is for Rookwood

Rookwood pottery began in 1880 in Cincinnati, OH by potter Maria Louise Nichols.  Nichols initially demonstrated an Oriental and European influence but quickly mastered Art Nouveau, Arts & Crafts and Art Deco styles popular at the time.  The best Rookwood pieces are from the earlier period of the company's history (factory still productive) and are easily identified by the well marked bases.  They are of a very high quality, hand crafted and have retained their value through the decades.  Once you familiarize yourself with Rookwood, you will forever be able to identify its loveliness from afar.  

Happy Hunting!

Four things you can't recover:

the stone after its thrown,
the word after its said,
the occasion after it's missed
the time after its gone.
