In 1932, an English bank moved into its new headquarters at 219–229 Baker Street, London. Does that sound familiar? Their new location was thought to include 221B Baker Street, the fictional home of Sherlock Holmes! He received visitors and mail, just like a real-life person.

So for many years the bank employed a secretary who answered the mail sent to Holmes!

Banho de mar como alternativa ao banho de sal grosso

Por estes tempos recebemos uma dúvida por e-mail de um rapaz nos perguntando se em vez de um banho de sal grosso, ele poderia tomar um banho de mar, por morar perto.

É uma atividade relaxante muito recomendada, mas recordamos também que evite momentos que o mar está agitado. 

De fato, um banho de mar pode ser uma ótima atividade, quem mora perto do mar deve aproveitar. O que recomendamos é procurar fazer esta atividade em horários mais tranquilos para aproveitar todos os benefícios que a água do mar e o que toda atividade podem proporcionar. E veja também: Problemas com más energias? Banhos são indicados.

Was The First Thanksgiving In Florida?

On September 8th, 1565, more than fifty years before the famous Pilgrims and Wampanoag “First Thanksgiving,” one Spanish Admiral Don Pedro Menéndez de Avilés waded onto a sandy shore in Florida. A number of curious members of the indigenous Timucua tribe watched as he kissed a cross, then claimed Florida for both his God and his country.  Avilés was not alone, but had brought 800 new colonists with him. They were there to start an outpost of the great Spanish Empire. The colonists set up a makeshift alter, still watched by the Timucua, and celebrated a thanksgiving Catholic mass performed by one of the priests they had brought along, to bless their safe arrival.

Then the Spanish and the guest Timucua sat down for a communal meal. Was this the “true” First Thanksgiving? It could be argued both ways. In the end, what I take away is that the Pilgrims’ claim will always be disputed.

Enhanced Color Panorama Above 'Perseverance Valley' on Mars

Toward the right side of this enhanced-color scene is a broad notch in the crest of the western rim of Endeavour Crater on Mars. Wheel tracks in that area were left by NASA's Mars Exploration Rover Opportunity as it observed "Perseverance Valley" from above in the spring of 2017.
