Hard Day’s Nite Bed and Breakfast – Benton, Illinois

Hard Day’s Nite Bed and Breakfast – Benton, Illinois

If you’re a Beatles fanatic (or at least obsessed with George Harrison), then let me tell you about the small town of Benton, Illinois. Why, you ask? Well, George’s sister Louise left her then home of Inverness, Scotland in 1956 with her miner husband and two small children for Canada,...

Supreme Burgrave’s House collection, Prague

This Christmas post was in my queue and I forgot to post it on the big day. But I think it works quite well with this week’s “miniature” theme. This 100-year-old doll cat quartet is part of the Supreme Burgrave’s House collection, which is located in Prague Castle. The historical...

Land of Lost Content Museum, Shrewsbury

Once upon a time I visited Shropshire to see the town of Shrewsbury, but apparently there’s not much else going on as it is England’s most rural and sparsely populated county. That might explain why the Land of Lost Content Museum exists there, like a place time has literally forgotten....

Sherlock Holmes – William Gillette

Sherlock Holmes – William Gillette

I will most likely be watching the Oscars. But I think I’d rather be in the middle of a state park visiting a former actor’s crazy castle. Actor and Connecticut native William Gillette, known for his portrayals of Sherlock Holmes on stage, spent more than $1 million (quite a lot...

Klown Doll Museum in Plainview, Nebraska

Klown Doll Museum in Plainview, Nebraska

Everybody hates clowns. Well, that’s true except for the people who run the Klown Doll Museum in Plainview, Nebraska. I don’t know if spelling clown with a ‘k’ makes makes everything less scary, but I sincerely doubt it. A local musical group from the 1950s called the Klown Doll Band...
