Fact of the Day: High Heels

High heels were most likely invented in Ancient Egypt. But their use didn't become a status symbol (for women and men) until the Renaissance in Europe. In France King Louis XIV decreed that only nobles and royals could wear high heels.

Random Photo: Merry Mess

I saw this at our local Hobby Lobby as Daisy wanted to see what they had. They had a small amount of Christmas stuff left over on markdown and I saw this broken sign where the M and S on the end of Merry Christmas was broken. Even if it was nothing, I'd wouldn't want that. 

Alice Through the Looking Glass (2016 Film) Review

 Disney's newest take on Alice Through the Looking Glass is something I've been kind of looking forward to and kind of not. This is based on the book that served as the sequel to the original Alice in Wonderland tale. Except I heard early on that this was going to be a loose adaptation at best. Last year I saw a movie (that was made for TV) from 1998 starring Kate Beckinsale and it was apparently more true to the book.. And I absolutely hated the film as it was nothing more than boring and mindless dribble. As far as I know, this is the first major film based on Through the Looking Glass and if the book really is just like the 1998 version I can see why. The 2016 Disney version did awful with critics, even worse than the "original" film with Mia Wasikowska and Johnny Depp. But could it be that terrible?

Fact of the Day: Napoleon in Great Britain

Napoleon Bonaparte wanted to invade Great Britain in the early 19th century but this invasion was not carried out for other plans. The planned invasion was not a secret as Napoleon was severely mocked by those in Great Britain.

My Favorite Photos: Lunch at Zaxbys

Zaxby's is a restaurant chain that's all over the South but rare elsewhere. The food is quite good though. Daisy loves their Wings and Things plate. We ate there after seeing the movie Moana not long ago. I think they have the best french fries in fast food.
