  • Norwegian adventurer famous for his  1947 Kon-Tiki expedition that sailed a log raft from South America to Polynesia was back at it again. On this day Heyerdahl and a crew of six others departed in an attempt to prove his theory that the Pharaoh’s navy of Ancient Egypt had the skill to sail Mexico and introduce their culture to the natives there. Heyerdahl left on the papyrus reed Ra I- from Safi in Morocco. After a few weeks they took on water and were forced to abandon Ra a few hundred miles from the Caribbean Islands and were saved by a yacht.

  • Actress Anne Heche was born 50 years ago today in Aurora, Ohio. She was in the late 90’s movies Donnie Brasco, Volcano, Six Days,Seven Nights, and Return To Paradise. She is probably most remembered though for her late 90’s highly publicized fling with Ellen DeGeneres. She is still active as an actress but I can’t remember the last time I saw her in a movie or even heard her name mentioned.

  • In Columbia, Maryland at the Merriweather Post Pavilion something that only happened one time- The Who and Led Zeppelin appeared together on the same bill- with Led Zeppelin opening up for The Who- on the tickets it was spelled Lead Zeppelin.


  1. We’ve always found the topic of ancient sailors and who may have found who first fascinating. Like, really, how coincidental can it be to have step pyramids in both South America and Egypt? Beyond coincidence, right?! Interesting evidence of crossover (besides the pyramids) includes the inexplicable presence of cocaine in some mummies in Egypt (from the coca plant which isn’t supposed to grow outside of South America) along with nicotine, also not a native plant of Egypt. Academia refuses to even look into this supposition, much less accept it, although it’s interesting that, conversely, it’s become more *common knowledge* that the Vikings discovered America before Columbus. There are currents described as “giant rivers” within the ocean that could easily aid ships sailing from Africa to South America. But I think nobody’s up for having to rewrite all those school textbooks, lol !!

    • I love your comment, Seliza. Exactly! I did a daily sign/symbol post each day in April this year, and time and again see universal/worldwide signs/symbols that may have different names. Carl Jung believed in the collective unconscious, which is all things from all times as a great sea of knowledge, where we can tap into it through our dreams. His belief is that the “holy people” of tribes got their ideas from the dream world, then shared them with the leaders. One current (the real oceans) or another (the sea of the collective unconscious) affirms we are one human family.

  2. Lol! Yes, time machines!! I don’t have a “like” on my end for this site for some reason, so I have to leave these annoying smiley faces: 🙂

  3. But, yes, I love your comment too, Msjadeli. How interesting, the daily signs/symbol post you’re talking about and the universal kind of sea of unconsciousness you’re talking about. It’s SO WEIRD because my husband was just talking about the (theoretical to some, reality for others) universal soup we’re all in, thus the overlapping of ideas, emotions, where deja vu comes from, how we’re thinking about someone and then, voila, they call. Fascinating! And what a wonderful, life-affirming thought which, if understood and followed by a majority instead of a minority, would make the world such a different place: we are one human family. Thank you, Msjadeli. Thank you, Hans!
