Posted on 04 December 2013, 9:47

One of the most astonishing coincidences in world history was the deaths of John Adams, (below) America’s second president, and Thomas Jefferson, its third.  They both died, 500 miles apart, on July 4, 1826, exactly fifty years after the signing of the Declaration of Independence.

Posted on 25 September 2013, 8:13

We live in time and are in constant flux.  We grow.  We diminish.  But a question arises.  Has the process been going on for a very long time?  Possibly even before our present life on earth?  I can’t remember a single event before my third year, but my parents tell me…

A Lesson from the Lewis and Clark Expedition
