Rare 47-star US flag donated to Smithsonian

Bob Adamowski, of the State of Washington, has donated a rare 47-star US flag to the Smithsonian Institution. Officially, there never was a 47-star US flag, because the flag can be changed only on the Fourth of July. But unofficially, the flag was correct for a few weeks. New Mexico became the 47th state January 6, 1912, and Arizona the 48th state the following February 14. So on July 4, the official flag switched from 46 to 48 stars.

The 47-star flag is so unusual that although New Mexico museums and the Fort McHenry National Monument in Maryland have some, the Smithsonian didn't.

These programs have been structured in a way to provide general medical education as well as specific
physical therapy courses. Remember that you are usually limited
to a number of sessions so you might want to consider paying out of your
own pocket. Although a lot of massage clients to prefer to be quiet during the massage and just enjoy
the relaxing massage in silence, there are also those that like to strike a conversation with the masseuse,
which gives you the opportunity to learn more about your clients and build a good
professional relationship with them.

With that experience, you have a better chance in
landing a permanent job in a bigger hospital. And, since you are going to look in the internet, you can easily pick out, from the
many sites, the cheapest massage therapist that can give you the best Swedish massage of your life.
A recovering therapist would be more capable of role modeling how
to stay clean and sober.

Hey! This is kind of off topic but I need some advice from an
established blog. Is it difficult to set up your own blog?

I'm not very techincal but I can figure things out pretty quick. I'm thinking about making my own but I'm not sure where to start. Do you have any tips or suggestions? Cheers
