  1. Too much coffee on a Saturday morning - pre-gumbo cooking, raining day

    the mini theme for the week - Mariel boatlift 1980

  2. However, There are several phrases associated with the Statue of Liberty, but the most recognizable is “Give me your tired, your poor, your huddled masses yearning to breathe free.” This quote comes from Emma Lazarus

  3. That poem was kind of an after thought to the statue. It wasn't part of the original gift from France.
