I’m a huge fan of Ripley’s Believe It or Not.  As one of my go-to sources for information, they are performing a service that the Library of Congress might look disdainfully upon as pedestrian.   I consider them highly relevant.  For example, they are monitoring something called the Centennial Light.  In the “they just don’t make things like they used to” category, this is the oldest burning incandescent bulb which has worked continuously since 1901.  If you ever find yourself near Fire Station 6 in Livermore, California, you can pop in for a visit.   In second place, is the 1908 “Palace Bulb” which is quite the attraction at the Stockyards Museum in Fort Worth, Texas.

I certainly do not want to make “light” of Ali Cavanaugh’s gorgeous work.  Her subjects radiate from the canvas.
