December 5, 1933: Prohibition Ends
On this day in 1933, prohibition ended with the ratification of the 21st Amendment, which achieved the mandatory three-fourths majority of states’ approval with support from Utah, Pennsylvania, and Ohio.
Subsequently, the 18th Amendment was repealed after it was passed during the prohibition and temperance movements in the early 19th century. This activism initially stemmed from the concern about the effects of alcohol abuse.
Check out a video collection from Ken Burns’s Prohibition film to discover the rise and fall of the prohibition era.

A toast to the anniversary of Prohibition’s end! After work hours, of course.

Hey, folks. We’re all for enjoying ourselves, being inspired by art, and making new art, but LET’S NOT JEOPARDIZE THE OLD ART (and especially someone else’s) while we’re at it, eh? Fondling, crawling on, and getting lipstick on these works of art is a no-no. Come on, people. And yeah, that lipstick? We now get to bring in a conservator to examine how much damage was done and whether it can be reversed.
Wow. That is tremendously not cool and disrespectful to boot. Just because it’s made of stone, that’s not an invitation to climb all over it.
First my room’s in pieces getting remodeled.
Now Mom wants to recarpet the living room, hallway, and the master bedroom. Before Christmas.
hooo boy. Hope we still manage to get the place together before the relatives come over.
Earlier, I came across a post talking about the things the writer didn’t care for about Frozen (spoilers below. MAJOR spoilers below).
I need a graphic design idea for a circular chart about networking amongst church organizations and how stewardship benefits everyone, etc.
Anyone got any bright ideas? Trees, I’m told, are becoming far too ubiquitous.
"Eatnemen Vuelie", from the opening sequence of Frozen.
This kind of music just cranks up all my happy circuits.
Couldn’t resist attempting to draw Elsa. Not great, but they resemble her a little, at least. I’ll do better next time.
(I like her coronation dress more than the snowflakey prom gown thing, but what do I know?)
