] Someone found a huge box of old postcards (1898-1922) in
] an antique shop. Not all that unusual, but what made them
] interesting was that they were all sent between members
] of the same (huge) family. Their finder is now scanning
] them in, transcribing them, and sticking them online.
This reminds me of the short lived site "I found part of your life" but over 100 years ago and it comes with original comentary.

I wake up
The world is black
Are my eyes open?
Am I truly awake?
My ears are ringing
My head is pounding
There is silence
I cant hear anything!
Will I ever hear again?
The room begins to spin
Or am I spinning?
Did anyone hear me?
Did I really scream?
I am in oblivion
Am I scared?
I cant decide!
What a Rush

] A Gobble approach to email.
] In 1621, a few hundred Pilgrims and Native Americans sat
] down to celebrate a bountiful harvest. The feast lasted
] three days, and included fowl, venison, fish, berries,
] watercress, lobster, dried fruit, clams, and plums. There
] was no pumpkin pie, however. There was also an alarming
] lack of user-friendly webmail services.
] Now, 383 years later, it's once again time to celebrate
] what has come to be known as Thanksgiving a time to
] gather with family and friends and give thanks for all
] that we have. We have many things to be thankful for. But
] mostly, we are thankful for you our users who
] remind us of why we work so hard all year and why we love
] what we do. That's better than all the dried fruit and
] clams in the world.
] Happy Thanksgiving! Thank you for making our approach to
] email yours.

Imagine gliding along on your bike through the north Georgia countryside, crossing a 500-foot-long trestle over a rushing river below, winding between rock cliffs and weaving among tall stately pines. Imagine doing this without having to worry about cars and trucks. Now imagine doing this for 60 miles on one trail!
No, that's not a dream, it's the Silver Comet Trail.
The trail is amazing. It is not a difficult ride and it has beautiful scenery. So if you are looking for somewhere to get a workout without having to worry about traffic this is an viable option.
