This past weekend we attended the 43rd Annual Johnny Appleseed Festival at Mapleside Farms in Brunswick, Ohio.  I have to say it is one of my favorite festivals to go to and it marks the beginning of the fall season.

When you first enter the festival there are vendors and food.


There aren’t a lot of vegetarian options, but I ate a pretzel with cheese and of course I had to have apple cider.


Jake, waiting for me to finish my pretzel.


Right next to the food area is the barn.  This is where you can buy a myriad of fall delights.  Apple butter, candy, popcorn, chocolate, gourds and apples of course.


I bought a bag of apples with caramel dipping sauce to go with it and some pumpkin butter.

The whole property is just beautiful.

Human migration out of Africa, picture by P.D. deMenocal and C. Stringer/Nature 2016

From Science News:

Going global

Previous studies have used fossil, archaeological and genetic data to time humans’ colonization of the world (times shown above). New genetic studies may change that map; they suggest small numbers of people left Africa 120,000 years ago, but left little trace in the DNA of present-day people. Most non-Africans inherited their DNA from people who left Africa between about 70,000 and 50,000 years ago, new studies suggest. But a climate study indicates that was the worst possible time for an out-of-Africa migration and suggests people may have left earlier, between 80,000 and 100,000 years ago.
