Living on a cliff:  probably not a good idea for the vision-impaired or families with small children, but it does allow strangers from around the world to visit your home town and take pictures of your house.  If you’re, you know, European.

Not so much weird as very gratifying to see — a photograph from a dance in 1944 sponsored by a Federal workers’ union.  Notice that white ladies are dancing with black soldiers and everyone seems to be having a good time.  Perhaps less gratifying: you are never more than 145 miles from a McDonald’s, anywhere in the continental United States.
