Ulysses S Grant, Official White House Portrait

Portraits: Ulysses S Grant

A few truths are clear about the most read posts of MowryJournal in the past year:

1. The series on Presidents found an audience … which still doesn’t include some of the members of my family. Just sayin’.

2. Velda’s recipes are three of the top posts … and alcohol is also the subject of three. Just sayin’.

3. After a steady devotion to exploring each of our 57 National Parks … only one makes the list of most read posts. It seems I have the same problem with readership that the Parks have with attendance, and we are the poorer for it, IMHO.

4. None of my woodworking posts make the list, though my post about the selection of cutting boards, with links to the science behind those choices, has made the list. Glad to help.

Here’s the list, and please, join the crowd and enjoy!

The game's made for tailgating, and in spite of Michael currently in the final year of getting his Master's from USC, the game HAD to be painted in UCLA colors.  Both Velda and Michael got there degrees from UCLA; once a Bruin, always a Bruin.  And if you know anything about this college rivalry in Southern California, you know this was a big deal!
