Photo: Social Relevance Light Bulb Spartanburg

My city of Spartanburg has these light bulbs everywhere as a large art project. This one I hadn't seen before, it was downtown near the library and the ice cream places. It's called Social Relevance by a local artist named Page Davis. I don't get the point of the colors, but they are pretty. 

Fact of the Day: Taoism Birth

According to some factions of Taoism, its founder Laozi was conceived when his mother gazed upon a falling star.  Even more odd is that he was supposed to have remained in the womb for 62 years. If Laozi was actually historical in any shape or form, he would have lived in the 6th or 4th century B.C.

Things I Like: Cassie (Paladins)

 One of the starting champions for new players, Cassie is actually my personal favorite of the whole game's roster.

During one of my Sundays volunteering with Big Brothers Big Sisters, I took my Little Brother Mr. B here so he could enjoy something outdoors. The first time we came, the place was littered with people all over the place. This particular Sunday, there was nobody but us. He likes to play tag on this playground, but he doesn't do it fairly. He will tell me to wait at the bottom while he's on the top level before I can "go". Making it nearly impossible for him to lose. The big blue slide of the left that you can see (there's another one behind it but you can't really see it) Mr. B discovered that some kid barfed in it and it dried out. And nobody from the park system came to clean that one up...gross. 

Fact of the Day: Frank Hayes

In 1923, a jockey named Frank Hayes won the last race of his life. People discovered that he actually died mid-race of a heart attack but his body stayed on the saddle of his horse until the end.
