June 27: National Bingo Day Bingo began in Italy in 1530 as a lottery. This fun way to make friends and, maybe, some money finally reached the United States 400 years. Enjoy a game or two. History of bingo.
Also, June 27: National Sunglasses Day While this event exists to remind about protecting our eyes from the sun’s ultraviolet rays, National Sunglasses Day is also a chance to look really cool while staying safe.
July 1st: International Joke Day Jokes are written or spoken words that make people smile or laugh. To be armed and dangerous with jokes, here are over 100, which include: What do you call a pig that does karate? A pork chop.

Sandra’s GalleriesSucceed and Soar’s “Eleanor’s Insights” series is illustrated with my photographs of ‘wild places,’ with no signs of people, except this debut image. Can you see me?

As I looked for images to accompany Eleanor Roosevelt’s words, this picture with desert and barren mountains meeting vast sky was ideal, even though –oops! — the sun slipped the shadow of my hands holding the camera into the lower right.
My art is available as prints on assorted, high-quality papers, framed and on canvas with various borders and widths.
