This Old Barn

A charming piece of East Falls history gets a facelift as we dig into the property's storied past. 

    This Old Barn
    This historic barn on JeffU's campus goes "topless" for the next few weeks as it undergoes $300k+ in upgrades, including repointed walls, new rafters, and a new roof. The barn will still need further improvements before it's fully restored, but this first phase is a big step towards preserving this unique structure from the early 19th century.

#OnThisDay in 1943, The Philadelphia Eagles and the Pittsburgh Steelers combined into one team due to player shortages caused by WWII. The "Steagles" went 5-4-1, and the two teams went back to normal in 1944!

    Steagles - Wikipedia
    The Steagles were the team created by the temporary merger of two National Football League (NFL) teams, the Pittsburgh Steelers and the Philadelphia Eagles, during the 1943 season. The teams were forced to merge because both had lost many players to military service during World War II.

    According to a Gallup Poll, there are approximately 2.4 million lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT) people over 50 years old. We know that many LGBTQ/SGL (same-gender loving) elders never came out of the closet because of the discrimination and stigma associated with being considered criminal and mentally ill.

Buddhist Blessings on the Falls Bridge

Imagine all the people, sharing all the world. 

    Buddhist Blessings on the Falls Bridge
    The colorful flags seen recently on the Falls Bridge aren't mere decoration, but an ancient Buddhist tradition for invoking peace, compassion and harmony. While associated today with Tibetan Buddhists, the practice of printing prayers on cloth flags has its roots in India.
