Cats: Messing up people's projects for at least 2,000 years.
#caturday  
Paw prints from a domestic cat were recently noticed by researchers on a 2,000-year-old Roman roof tile, proving that cats have been remorseless life-ruiners since at least the dawn of Christianity.

A French student has found an adult tooth dating back around 560,000 years in south-western France, in what researchers are hailing as a major discovery.

Valentin Loescher, 20, was volunteering alongside Camille Jacquey, 16, on his first summer archaeological dig at the Arago cave near Tautavel, when he discovered the tooth.

Until now, researchers believed farming was 'invented' some 12,000 years ago in an area that was home to some of the earliest known human civilizations. A new discovery offers the first evidence that trial plant cultivation began far earlier -- some 23,000 years ago.

In Turkey, the excavation of a small ancient community dated to Neolithic times has informed our image of the beginnings of civilization.

A prime early example of a pictorial approach to mapping as it was made in 1901. Prior to the highway system that would connect the states, this map routes around the nation, with key points of interest. #oldmapgallery #pictorialmaps #usa #gameboards

The BEST quality meats. Used to love going here as a kid with my parents just to get some stick bologna and scrapple for breakfast. Whenever I'm back in the area I make sure to stop and stock up to bring 300 miles back home!

Pretty much what you would expect from an all you can eat buffet. Almost good food. But lots of it. Beverages cost extra.

Delicious dishes and you can't beat the atmosphere. You can request your own comfy armchairs inside, or sit outside by the fire in the summer. Generous serving sizes and a full bar with some tasty drinks on the menu. The deserts are some of the best I've had.

They do one thing(basically) and they do it well. Breakfast. They're open till 1 on weekdays, but this place is for breakfast. Huge portions, small prices. The seating can be tight when they are busy, which is most of the time. Which says something! One of the best places for breakfast in the area.

We've stopped here many times. Nursery/Garden supply/Produce/"Restaurant"/Farmers market. Always busy. Great people. Took our nephew through the corn maze this fall!

Deep fried goodness. A little pricey but being a local summer tradition it's almost expected. All outside seating at picnic tables. Which is why it's seasonal. You're not a Adams/North Adams local unless you've been here at least once. Each summer.
