A Mutually Exclusive Intersection

An intersection of religion and education, while common perhaps shouldn’t be. Are they not mutually exclusive? To have faith in something that can neither be seen nor understood, as is the expectation in religion, seems abominable in education. But then again, consider the following:

Unlikely Intersection (2 1/2 stars)

This was such a good idea when I saw it…..not when it was time to execute it! I figured with as many funny roads I have around where I live, such as Beaverdamn, Cuckoo’s nest, Pottysville, etc. That I would have fun with this, however being that I live in …

Visual Assignment-Unlikely Intersections

2 Unlikely Intersections Meet Again

For my last assignment of the week, I decided as I was driving through my home town. I noticed the two street signs, Lamb and New Boston. My first thought was, oh that is probably not good enough, but then I realized that you would never see an actual lamb…

What Progress?

This is the photo I took for the visual assignment “Unlikely Intersection.”  I love American history but I couldn’t tell you very much about what progress Van Buren made when he served as president.  Maybe a history major would like to enlighten me?

Unlikely Intersections
