Good morning lovely people,
It's T-Day again! I will be sharing something to do with a drink later on.
But first, here is my postcard. I received it this week from Hongkong.
It is beautiful and shows the process of making porcelain out of clay in ancient China. The stamps are also beautiful:
Can you see them clearly? I hope they enlarge sufficiently to see. The one on the right reads : Kitchen ware street. A you can see the card was bought at the museum of tea ware! Very appropriate for T-Day I would say!
Some of you might know that now I'm retired I like to play online computer games. My hubby and I both play Elvenar, and I alone also play Forge Of Empire, a city building game that is based on the course of history. Every phase in the game is an era of history. I am playing in the late middle ages at the moment. Every now and then they do special quests about famous people throughout history. Last month it was Ghandi and now it is Rosa Parks:
This is what I found on the internet about her:
By refusing to give up her seat to a white man on a Montgomery, Alabama, city bus in 1955, black seamstress Rosa Parks (1913—2005) helped initiate the civil rights movement in the United States. The leaders of the local black community organized a bus boycott that began the day Parks was convicted of violating the segregation laws. Led by a young Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., the boycott lasted more than a year—during which Parks not coincidentally lost her job—and ended only when the U.S. Supreme Court ruled that bus segregation was unconstitutional. Over the next half-century, Parks became a nationally recognized symbol of dignity and strength in the struggle to end entrenched racial segregation.
I was only 4 year old at the time, so I don't remember, but I have Heard about her. It must have taken courage in those days to do that. What a lady!
My postcard could qualify me for T-Day but I would like to share a few images with you which I found:
There's a whole set of these apparently:
Plus a tea pot:
I'm afraid I will be out until late tonight so comments will be as from tomorrow.
Happy T-Day all!
