Lincoln & Poe 1849

Edgar Allan Poe poses with Abraham Lincoln in Mathew Brady’s Washington, D.C. studio- February 4th, 1849.


After doing some digging it seems that while I was gone, there were changes made here at WordPress that now  prevent my featured images to show up when shared on G+. (Although one of them did go through the way I wanted it to but none have since.) It looks like I may have to change the theme in order to get things back to normal. I don’t know how I’m gonna swing this one, as I like the theme I’m currently using.  This is one last desperate attempt to see if I can get around all the changes. No worries, it’s  just a bump in the road. I plan to have her back up and fully operational in no time! (Meaning I won’t quit till it’s right.)

 😉 Wish me luck! I can’t wait to see what image they chose for this post, I added this image of Lincoln and Edgar Allan Poe that it is supposed to use, we’ll see! If anything, it’s a good conversation piece, don’t ya think?  Anna

This Massive Navy Plane Is The Most Advanced Search Aircraft In The World- Business Insider

The Boeing P-8 Poseidon is a multi-functional aircraft that was introduced into the U.S. Military in November 2013.

Replacing the P-3 Orion, the Poseidon is a long-range anti-submarine warfare, anti-surface warfare, intelligence, surveillance, and reconnaissance aircraft.

Developed from the commercial Boeing 737NG series, the P-8 truly shines in its unrivaled surveillance capabilities. It was for this reason that the U.S. used Poseidons to help in the search for the missing Malaysia MH370 flight.
