‘Merci!’: Montpellier, France sends misspelled football jerseys to Montpelier, Vermont

Mhmm, is it just me or could it actually be that Montpellier, Vermont is misspelled? Instead of wasting these beautiful t-shirts, could the city council of Montpelier, Vermond perhaps finally correct the city’s name? Where is this "Pelier mountain" anyway?

Pal the dog actor of the famous Lassie television series – live, love and death

"Pal (dog actor)" on @Wikipedia:
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pal_(dog_actor)?wprov=sfti1

"By 1957, Pal was growing blind, deaf, and stiff, and rarely visited the Lassie set. The star of the show Jon Provost later recalled, "As young as I was, I recognized how much that dog meant to Rudd. Rudd loved that old dog as much as anyone could love an animal or person."

Pal died of natural causes in June 1958 at age 18 (about 85 in "dog years"); and for months Weatherwax slipped in and out of deep depression. Robert Weatherwax, Rudd’s son, later recalled, "It hit him very hard when Pal died. He buried him in a special place on the ranch and would often visit the grave. Dad would never again watch an MGM Lassie movie. He just couldn’t bear to see Pal. He didn’t want to have to be reminded of just how much he loved that dog."

I visited a salt mine in southern Germany #roadtrip #greatexperience

This salt mine is still in use. It is a few hundred meters under the surface and the layer of salt extends over a hundred miles into Switzerland. The salt is mostly used by the chemical industry. Some of these halls are hundreds of meters long, twenty meters wide and high. They are also used to store chemical waste, e.g. from industrial filters (the big white bags that you see at the end of the movie). If you are interested in a tour: the entrance is in Bad Friedrichshall.
