If not for the persistence and diligence of one young woman, an injustice related to Nazi rule might have gone unchallenged. In 2011, Charlotte van den Berg was a 20-year-old college student interning for Amsterdam’s city archives when she came across a shocking find: letters from Jewish Holocaust survivors complaining about being forced to pay back taxes and late payment fines on property seized after their deportation to Nazi death camps.After her colleagues and superiors declined to investigate further, Charlotte began a lonely fight to bring the city’s attention to the matter, even sending her findings to an Amsterdam newspaper as a last ditch effort. “My feeling was, they were too important to just let them lie there,” she said. “This was an injustice that was done, not something you could just put aside and forget about.” Largely due to her efforts and the public outcry following the newspaper’s publication of her discovery, city officials are considering compensating Holocaust survivors for the taxes and fines. Bravo to Charlotte for seeing an injustice and doing something about it!Read more via Associated Press.

Four glorious days in which I get to spend some quality time with my wonderful boyfriend. He is quite excellent.

Maple syrup roast parsnips and beat up roast potatoes. Good times making our first roast dinner together!

The only thing that would make these secret room bookcases cooler is if you activate them by pulling out a special, secret book :)

Anyone who is a fan of Naked Gun needs this in their lives. I got brought up on Leslie Nielsen classic one liners…

Again, always worth reblogging

NPR posted an article with a title asking why people don’t read anymore, but the content was just an April Fools joke. Then people started to embarrass themselves.

In older times people used to think bad smells caused disease…to counter this they would hold a small floral bouquet (or a posey) to their nose to ward off illnesses. Now whilst this practice is no longer because of modern medicine, I still find it interesting that bad smells are a one sign of rot, decay and death. The guy sitting opposite me reeks of smoke, I can’t understand for the life of me why anyone would smoke, why invite death into your life?

Team mate/Best mate. Love you.

Team mate/Best mate. Love you.

There is nothing like your love,
When the storm rages on,
There is nothing like your peace,
When the chaos surrounds me,
There is nothing like your word,
When I can’t understand a thing,

Jesus you are everything I need,
My shelter, my rock, my love,
In the midst of it all you are The Lord,
The Lord of all

There is nothing like your strength,
When I am weak and failing,
There is nothing like your comfort,
When I am in desperate need,
There is nothing you cannot do,
I surrender my all to you
