Photo: Ralph Lauren Teddy Bear

I was in the Haywood Mall without Daisy a few days ago passing some time. I saw this pink teddy bear near the Dillards entrance. I know Daisy would have tried to take this one home, if she had the chance.

Things I Like: Cora Crawley (Downton Abbey)

 Out of the major characters, Cora was one of the weakest in my opinion, but I still liked her greatly. I liked how they made the wife of a British earl, American. She was born in a very wealthy family, and at the time, many girls in similar families wanted to be British ladies. British lords at the time needed good dowries as a modernizing world left them with the ability to not afford the luxuries of their fathers and forefathers.

Photo: Sauna

While looking around in Costco, I saw this stand-alone sauna they had on display. I saw a Finnish one at the Spartanburg International Festival about two years ago, and you could step in for a minute and feel the heat. It does sound appealing in the winter time. Though I wouldn't know where to put the blasted thing at my residence. 

Fact of the Day: King Cinnamon

The spice known as cinnamon has very ancient origins. In ancient times, it was so rare however, that it was said to be only reserved for monarch and deities.
