two events occurred:
1. The “Unsinkable” Titanic did sink.
The RMS Titanic was a British registered four funnelled ocean liner built for the transatlantic passenger and mail service between Southampton and New York.
Constructed at the Harland and Wolff shipyard in Belfast, Ireland Titanic was, on her maiden voyage, the largest vessel afloat.
On April 10th 1912 the Titanic sailed from Southampton with 2,200 passengers and crew, four days later the Titanic collided with an iceberg and sank. 1500 people died and 700 survived.
You can find many good sites about the ship, the people, and this tragic event.
2. Robert Doisneau was born. Although he passed away a few years ago, in ’91, Robert Doisneau is considered one of the greatest photographers of all time. While the wikipedia page on Doisneau offers more information, this page from the UK’s The Daily Mail, offers a few of his most famous works:

Come out and celebrate Spring with us at Tuscany Woods – by Drake Homes Inc.
Whether you live in a house or a townhome, having a place to share a meal with family and friends is a blessing. Or in the wise words of Erma Bombeck:
The family. We were a strange little band of characters trudging through life sharing diseases and toothpaste, coveting one another’s desserts, hiding shampoo, borrowing money, locking each other out of our rooms, inflicting pain and kissing to heal it in the same instant, loving, laughing, defending, and trying to figure out the common thread that bound us all together.
Come visit any of our communities and see how joyful you and your family can be – in a home by Drake Homes Inc.

and those wonderful May flowers they bring. Where I live, in North Texas, we needed some of those showers last summer, as did much of Texas. With that in mind, here is a terrific “photo of the day” link, a storm picture, from our friends to the north…no, not Oklahoma VBG, but Canada. Check it out, you can download it as a wall paper.

Ceiling fans can be an important part of keeping cool during the summer.
According to the Energy Savers web page:
Ceiling Fans and Other Circulating Fans
Circulating fans include ceiling fans, table fans, floor fans, and fans mounted to poles or walls. These fans create a wind chill effect that will make you more comfortable in your home, even if it’s also cooled by natural ventilation or air conditioning. Ceiling fans are considered the most effective of these types of fans, since they effectively circulate the air in a room to create a draft throughout the room.
