Japanese Internment Camps from history.com The USA version of POW camps.
A memorial to the racism that is still part of America. Thousands of Americans were put
in prison camps for years!, for the crime of picking the wrong ancestors, and not being
white.Of course, their homes and businesses were taken away from them and given away
to white Americans. This is a long article with plenty of well-organized information.

"A catte"

Includes a great video about this work.

"This embroidered panel depicts a ginger cat and a mouse, seated on
a chequered floor, bearing the cipher of Mary, Queen of Scots.
Mary was an adept needlewoman and the Royal Collection has this
and the following panel, which demonstrate her skill. It has been
suggested that in this panel Mary was alluding to herself as the mouse
and Elizabeth I as the cat. Elizabeth was famouly ginger (a red-head).
(When Mary escaped from Scotland in 1568, she fled to England to
seek help from her cousin, Elizabeth I. Instead of providing refuge,
the English queen put her in the custody of George, Earl of
Shrewsbury. Most of her embroideries were carried out between 1569
and 1584 during this captivity."

Bell (Lai Zhong) - The Cleveland Museum of Art


One of Lai's Bells, with inscriptions about why it
was made. From a set of eight.
China, Western Zhou dynasty, 800–700 BC
"This bell bears an inscription of 118 characters
about its owner, Lai, and why it was cast.
Lai's ancestors dutifully served the Western Zhou
royal court, and he was granted a hereditary
position by the Son of Heaven. To express
filial piety, Lai commissioned a set of bells
as an offering to his father, Gongshu, in the
hope that they would be forever treasured
by future generations."

Hi, kids! I'm Dakota! I am one of the Brittanies here at
Good Sites for Kids! I'm a retired hunter and a mama.
My fur-sister Lily and I are American Brittanies, both
rescues, and both South Dakota natives. When we're not
helping out on the site, we patrol the property,
chase rabbits and squirrels, say hi to the kids at the school
playground and the dogs next door, rack out on our doggie
beds, beg for treats, and hang out with our humans!
