Some times there are real life superheros and maybe this guy was one? Owner of Little Cesars Pizza dies and was worth billions. As a billionaire he donated to programs of his beloved city of Detroit and to a University to build a new business school and such things. This guy done to the citiy and people more that any politican.

Apparently he never spoke about it and it only comes to light after his death. I admit I got a little choked up when I heard this. Oh and side note, he was the son of immigrants.

Strolling by the water at Indiana Dunes National Lakeshore in Indiana is a serene experience. The sun sparkles on the water and the breeze blows your troubles off your shoulders. Whether you enjoy scouting for rare species of birds or flying kites on the sandy beach, the national lakeshore’s 15,000 acres will continually enchant you. Even seeing the Chicago skyline 35 miles away across Lake Michigan makes it seem like the rest of the world is far away. Photo by National Park Service.

Located in the northwest corner of Lake Superior Isle Royale National Park in Michigan is the place to go for solitude. The park is an island of roadless backcountry reachable only by boat or seaplane – making it the least visited national park in the lower 48 states. Photographer Carl TerHaar captured this moonrise from Pickerel Cove, one of the islands’ campgrounds that consists of a narrow ridge accessible by small boat. Full moon photo courtesy of Carl TerHaar.
