Hey gang, as I’m sure you already know things are kinda lousy all over right now. Out of support for Black Lives Matter I’m not going to be updating anything to the Our Valued Customers social media accounts for a while. I just feel like the guy who posts cartoons about dopey Star Wars fans isn’t the voice anyone needs to hear from at the moment.

It’s hard to know what to say. I feel scared and sad for everyone who has experienced these horrible losses at the hands of the militarized goons who have abused their power and our trust for so long. Black lives matter. Please be careful out there.

-Tim.

Perfectly Preserved 1,700-Year-Old Roman Mosaic Floor Found Under Vineyard in Italy

1 Share

Officials in Negrar di Valpolicella, an Italian village midway between Milan and Venice, have made a startling discovery several meters below a vineyard: A perfectly preserved mosaic floor dating back to the 3rd Century A.D.


In 1922, hints of a Roman villa had been discovered on the site, but no successful excavations had been performed until now. "After countless decades of failed attempts," the municipality writes on their Facebook page, "part of the flooring and foundations of the Roman Villa have been located."

Uncovering the floor completely "will not come soon," the municipality writes, pointing out that "significant resources will be needed." They are also working "to identify the most suitable ways to make this archaeological treasure available and open and visible under our feet."
