A bear-y good idea

I used a bunch of things from my basement: my son’s old stuffed bunny collection, my old teddy bear and several handmade kites I got as souvenirs visiting Weifang China(self-proclaimed Kite Capital of the World) to put together this cheerful display in our bay window. The next week I learned that putting bears into windows is a nation-wide “thing”: Why you’re seeing teddy bears and rainbows in windows right now.

Seems like a fun idea…and not just for kids.

But is it true?

Sign on a building in Russell, New Zealand.

Russell New Zealand was called the “hellhole of the Pacific” by local missionaries due to the wild behavior of the whalers on shore leave. Is this sign a witty response to all of the “first recorded cricket game happened here” signs (yes, I really saw that one, but I didn’t photograph it), an indication that nothing happening is worthy of note…or a claim of virtue that may or may not be correct?
