Bob Ross was born on this day in 1942. For years, his gentle humor attracted painting enthusiasts to tune into his PBS show, 'The Joy of Painting.' We salute Bob Ross, for not only completing an entire painting in 30 minutes, but also for his Zen-like and encouraging nature for everyone to create art.
John Muir, the “Father of the National Parks” and founder of The Sierra Club, died 100 years ago on this day. He devoted his life to preserving American wilderness for future generations to enjoy. So thank you John Muir, for Yosemite Valley and Sequoia National Parks, and all the other parks and natural wonders you helped to save.
