The mummy of Djehutymose, a priest in the Temple of Horus between 684 and 525 B.C., may be missing, but he cheerfully informs his Facebook followers that his spirit (or "Ba") still lingers around his coffin at the Kelsey Museum of Archeology in Ann Arbor, Michigan.

Visiting Lake Michigan lighthouses in the winter

by Dominique-Midwest Guest / Jan 23, 2014 / 0 comments

There isn't much that I like more than visiting lighthouses during the summer. The sun, the sand, and sunny skies lend themselves to long lazy days walking along the beach, sun bathing, boating, and building sand castles.

We're lucky here in Michigan, where more than 110 lighthouses dot the coasts of the Great Lakes that surround our state's Lower and Upper Peninsulas, and I'm especially fortunate to have visited many of these historic beauties over the years.
