Ten Saturday Links

An artist has a unique mind. They pull ideas from places regular people never consider. Look at some of these beautiful creations and what could have been the inspiration for their designs. 

These shipping containers look much better stacked this way than they do in any port I've ever been to.

You don't have to use Google Earth just for directions.  You can find some pretty interesting images there too.

I love a good Philly Cheesesteak sandwich.  If I had the ingredients, I'd make this right now - and it's 2 a.m.

Ten years ago this week, New Orleans was devastated by Hurricane Katrina.

Pow. Wow!  She makes a First Nations custom Canadian Jingle Dress look amazing. Congratulations to the first Enoch Cree Nation woman to be crowned Mrs. Universe. 

At least they had some success naming the states. I'd venture to say there's an embarrassingly high number of Americans who couldn't even point out where England is on a map.

Speaking of England, I can't even bear the thought of this ending. What will I do without Mr. Bates?

Did you know that poaching Venus Flytraps in North Carolina is a felony? Yep. You can be in jail for taking a plant that doesn't belong to you. I heard about the Venus Flytrap thievery for the first time here. Most interesting thing I've learned all week.

These two tell you how they finance their world travels. Here's a great Open Letter To Parents on letting their children go. Travel - even the extensive domestic travel I've done - opens eyes. You want to give your children the world, don't you?
