Our Open Thread this weekend is hosted by this happy otter. And a carrot.
Today in history: Samuel Morse sent the code message “What hath God wrought”, Amy Johnson became the first woman to fly solo from England to Australia, the first Eurovision Song Contest was held, Eritrea gained its independence from Ethiopia, Temba Tsheri became the youngest person to climb Mt Everest, Queen Victoria, George Lakoff, and Helen Taussig were born, and Copernicus and Duke Ellington died.
Please feel free to use this thread to natter about anything your heart desires. Is there anything great happening in your life? Anything you want to get off your chest? Reading a good book (or a bad one)? Anything in the news that you’d like to discuss? What have you created lately? Commiserations, felicitations, temptations, contemplations, speculations?
