The Cathedral

Turkey Foot Rock

I found THIS ARTICLE, from the Blade, in the daily news section of the website for Archaeology Magazine. It seems the rock was turned upside down when some lame-brain decided to set it in concrete. I'm afraid that doesn't surprise me. I have too many decades of experience in the foibles of local historians and historical societies to expect much in the way of common sense.
The painting of Turkey Foot Rock, above, is by Toledo artist William H. Machen, courtesy of the Toledo-Lucas County Public Library.

Ugliest Church in Toledo

I've always been surprised by how ugly St. Mark's Episcopal, on Collingwood is. Until now I thought there was, at least, a nice statue at the top. Scratch that. I got a good look today and it's awful. More like St. ZZ Top.
