If you ever drive from Crystal Falls to Green Bay, you weave in and out of Michigan and Wisconsin near Iron Mountain, which is mentioned in Sunday's Day in History in connection with the elderly gent above. Albert Einstein loved to spend time in the woods, sometimes in upstate New York, and on occasion in Spread Eagle, Wisconsin. His notable achievement on this day in 1906 was publication of the Theory of Relativity.

An Einstein Shoebox Memory is timely, in light of what's happening in Washington this week with international leaders discussing the future of the world's nuclear weapons. Mr. Einstein was outspoken in urging the nations away from the brink of nuclear destruction.

"The release of atomic energy has not created a new problem. It has merely made more urgent the necessity of solving an existing one."
. . . . Albert Einstein

Our thanks to Phil Griffin at bunksplace.com for Albert's photo. Phil's website highlighting Saranac Lake, NY, has been around about as long as Pasty Central has been bringing attention to the upper Great Lakes.

Have a good week :o)

Goes to show you; even a genius knows you can't beat the northwoods for perfection!!

Speaking of Wisconsin, I'm still bummed about the Badgers losing the championship game last night. If not the Huskies, at least let it be another WCHA team that brings the trophy home....
