Just the other day, my friend Joanne told me of a documentary about Hummus. She sent me the trailer on YouTube and I was able to stream it and watch the various cultures claim the origin of this Middle Eastern Chickpea dish. Here’s the trailer of the film
Chickpeas – high in fiber and can lower cholesterol – two health benefits listed.

Retro American Tourister Train Case
The color is “Fawn”. I received a three piece American Tourister luggage set from my maternal grandparents on the occasion of my 1970 high school graduation. The two suitcases are gone. But here’s the train case.
The red, white and blue luggage tag is at home in Pittsburgh, I’m pretty sure. .
While I’m here in Columbus OH, I saw the remaining piece in the closet at Laura’s home. I asked her what’s in there? Calico Critters from her childhood.

Columbus Mosaic at Clinton Elementary
Friday we went to Charlie’s school for Art Night and saw the students’ artwork displayed.
As we toured every floor, we saw this ceramic tile mosaic mural in the cafeteria. It was striking.
The ceramic tile artist Marlo Bartels Mosaic Saved article describes the journey the mural has taken. Here’s a short video telling how this colorful mural has been moved THREE times. You can not only hear the artist interviewed, but see Marlo Bartels do repair work on his mosaic mural at Clinton Elementary.

McCammon Chase Holiday Displays
I was a passenger last night. We were looking at holiday lights. Erika drove us through the McCammon Chase neighborhood where the HOA has coordinated uniform light displays. Tree trunks wrapped in red lights, white lights draped in the bare branches.
Here’s a quick video of driving through a block or two so you can be amazed like I was.
And a still snipped from from the video
Cicadas in Columbus Ohio
I’d not experienced the cicadas incessant sounds until I came out here for a visit. The trees are filled with the red eyed insects. It’s been 17 years since they’ve emerged. Here an article about this species, not to be confused with the annual cicadas.
Listen to Cicadas in Columbus Ohio a short video -you can hear them and see them flying around
(Or maybe you’re experiencing them yourself where you live and don’t need to listen)
They are everywhere.

May Snow and Blossoms Guest Blog
May Blossoms and Snow video captured in Ohio by Terry Sherry. She texted this afternoon and I asked if I could post her capture of the snow falling.
It’s quick but she documented the unexpected May weather. Thanks Terry. I heard it snowed in places in Pittsburgh too but I didn’t see it. She told me there was a duck in the pond but we can’t see him. Brrrrrrrrrrrr.
