#inktober #1 2016 Think Fast

Annas Art - FärgaregårdsAnna

Here’s my take on #inktober #1

The word “is” means in Swedish ice. So either the text says our world is (ice) melting or our world ice melting. You can choose which you want.

At inktober.com you find more info about the challenge.

Inktober rules:

1) Make a drawing in ink (you can do a pencil under-drawing if you want).

2) Post it online

3) Hashtag it with #inktober and #inktober2016

4) Repeat

Note: you can do it daily, or go the half-marathon route and post every other day, or just do the 5K and post once a week. What ever you decide, just be consistent with it. INKtober is about growing and improving and forming positive habits, so the more you’re consistent the better.

That’s it! Now go make something beautiful.

SCHOOL DAYS 1905-1972


Looking through past issues of The Bay Times, old-time photographs were often submitted by local people who thought their family, friends, and neighbors might be interested in seeing themselves and loved ones from back in the day of one room school houses.

This first photo of Dominion School on Kent Island was taken on November 12, 1905, and includes such familiar local surnames as Severa, Tull, Thompson, Stevens, and Jones. The picture was originally provided to the  Bay Times courtesy of Roy Golt.


Here’s another from the beginning of the 20th century. This photograph is of another Kent Island school which was located near the entrance of the Stevensville subdivision of Cloverfields.


This picture was taken sometime between 1910 and 1915 and was provided to the newspaper by Howard Walters and Jim Weston. Some names are missing from the group who posed in front of the “real old” Stevensville High School and…

A Post About Clio

History Present


Though often unrecognized, history constantly brushes against us. It is present in all the places we visit, in houses we walk past, and the roads on which we drive. Stored in libraries and archives the world over, these histories link people to place, but they are not easily accessible. Wireless devices allow us to access an incomprehensible amount of information, if we know what to enter in a search field. How can the history buff easily connect with the history around them? How can a football fan travelling through Portsmouth, OH, quickly discover the local stadium NFL Hall of Fame members once called home? If a naval enthusiast gassed up in Portsmouth, NH, how could they casually learn of William Badger’s 1800’s shipyard? Clio connects you with historic places, people, and events with which you are not familiar. It is free and simple to use.
