This week in history
On November 14, 1889, the American journalist Nellie Bly (Elizabeth Cochran Seaman) began her attempt to break a fictional record. She wanted to beat Phileas Fogg, the hero of "Around the World in Eighty Days" by Jules Verne. And guess what? She did! She completed her journey in 72 days.

A touch of Sharpy
To a happy life together
"This is a photo of my daughter, Bethany, with her fiancé in 1998. They got married in June of that year, and the same photographer that took that photo was also their wedding photographer. They are now the parents of four wonderful young adults (three in college, one in high school), and I'm so proud of them and my grandkids."
Sharpy is a feature allowing you to unblur grainy or lower-quality photos – try it yourself!

Blast from the past
You'd imagine this tea leaf reader in Edmonton, Canada, would use her magnifying glass to better look at the teacup right next to her, but at that moment, she preferred reading the paper.

"I found this photo while scanning my late mother's most special family pictures. It's of my great-grandaunt, Louisa Cross, on her wedding day to Alexander Copland on September 20, 1909, in Waimate, South Canterbury, New Zealand."
