2 in love

THESE skeletons of a Roman-era couple buried in a final embrace have been unearthed in Italy. Archaeologists excavating a palace found the remains of the lovers, who have held hands for 1,500 years. The man and woman were discovered in a joint tomb in a palace in Modena. Excavation director Donato Labate said: “I have been involved in many digs but I’ve never felt so moved.” The two skeletons, which are poorly preserved, will be studied to establish the couple’s age, their relationship and the possible cause of death

Courtesy of Wikipedia-- here is a brief explanation of DIA DE LOS MUERTOS (Day Of The Dead)

"Day of the Dead (SpanishDía de Muertos) is a Mexican holiday celebrated throughout Mexico and around the world in many cultures. The holiday focuses on gatherings of family and friends to pray for and remember friends and family members who have died. It is particularly celebrated in Mexico, where it attains the quality of a National Holiday, and all banks are closed. The celebration takes place on November 1–2, in connection with the Catholic holidays of All Saints' Day (November 1) and All Souls' Day (November 2). Traditions connected with the holiday include building private altars honoring the deceased using sugar skullsmarigolds, and the favorite foods and beverages of the departed and visiting graves with these as gifts."

communion tour

A couple of weeks ago, I went to Tri Studios and saw the most amazing show. The Communion tour consists of three folk bands, Matthew & the Atlas, The David Mayfield Parade and Lauren Shera. Each band left me in awe and when they all got on the stage together it got better! Check them out, I am sure they are playing in a city near you.

Here is an excerpt I found online by's by Tyler Kane

"Communion — a live music promotion team from the U.K. that was formed by Mumford & Sons keyboardist Ben Lovett, producer Ian Grimble and Kevin Jones — will kick off its move into the U.S. with “Communion in the Redwoods.” The event is a three-day party in Big Sur, Calif. on Oct. 21 through 23. Communion helped artists like Laura Marling, Noah and the Whale and Marcus Foster establish their live shows.

“We founded Communion as a way for people to get together and play music without all the hassle of dealing with money-grabbing venue promoters,” Lovett said. “No matter what the venue size, they’ve always been amazingly intimate occasions. We’re incredibly excited to be launching Communion in America, where not only are there literally thousands of excellent musicians that we want to promote, but it’s also a country full of passionate music fans that we want to feel part of the Communion experience.  The tour will feature Matthew & the Atlas, The David Mayfield Parade and Lauren Shera.”
