The Age of Adaline

Pictured above:  Adaline, portrayed by Blake Lively VAV!/May 21, 2015/Contributed by Star In Her Eyes A sweet, romantic tale, The Age of Adaline, is a different kind of film. Though it's a romance, there is a touch of science fiction to explain Adaline's peculiar situation. Instead of a typical movie, the film seems more like a fantasy tale done in water colors and rose-water. Adaline is like everyone else who ever lived. She decides to marry and have a child and nothing seems extraordinary about her life. Things change when she is involved in a one car accident. Nature collides with science, and she changes. But Adaline never changes, never ages, and has to leave her hometown so the government does use her as a test subject. She never spends too much time in one place but keeps up with her daughter, happy with her simple, nomadic life. That changes when she meets Ellis Jones, and her feelings for him cause her to rethink all her rules.

 

The Baltimore And Ohio Railroad

VAV!/May 20, 2015 The story that the B&O Railroad Museum can tell better than any other organization on earth is the story of how railroads and railroaders shaped the course of American history during pivotal moments of the conflict. - B& O Railroad Museum Through the years, railroads have always played an integral part in the settlement of America and its industrialization. They carried people from coast to coast and through the placement of stations enabled the establishment of urban centers that served rural populations. Major industrial centers developed alongside the railroad's major transportation hubs. Railroad centers provided links to the other major form of bulk transportation, river transportation and ocean-going vessels. The Baltimore and Ohio Railroad, pioneered by Philip E. Thomas and George Brown in Baltimore, Maryland, was the location of one of the first commercial railroads  Here's how history plays out in the Baltimore and Ohio's beginning days... In 1826, Thomas and Brown carefully studied the railway systems in England, at the time, commercial ventures. Following their findings, they called a meeting on February 12, 1827, with some twenty-five citizens, primarily Baltimore merchants or bankers, "to take into consideration the best means of restoring to the city of Baltimore that portion of the western trade which has lately been diverted from it by the introduction of steam navigation and by other causes."
