    2/9/21 - Star

    I think this was one of my favorites! So many great options if I kept my eyes open! Loved it!

    Directional sign outside the Postal Square Building in DC. Today marks 11 months since I've been inside (after 18.5 years of being there most workdays...)

    Nope! And I still work for the same employer...we've just all been on maximum telework since mid-March so I've been working from the dining room/elementary school classroom since then

    2/10/2021 5 or 6 point Star ⭐

    While I'm searching through the artwork on the walls of the Workhouse Arts Center in Lorton hoping to find a star (I was unsuccessful) my ride partner called me over to the map of the Workhouse saying that there is always a star letting you know where you are located on maps. While it made perfect sense, I would never have thought about looking for a map. 🗺️

    "Mogan" and "Magen" are transliterations of the same word, מָגֵן. They're both approximations of a word written in a different alphabet. It's not that "mogen" means "cheap wine" while "magen" translates to "star".

    2/10/215 or 6 pointed star
    I never realized stars were such a commonly-used shape in retail logos and signage until today when my ride took me past PG Plaza Mall.

    so what DO they mean? I mean - what is it that encompasses both "cheap wine" and "star"? Is it translateable?

    That's very cool btw.

    On February 10, 2017, Adam Levine - frontman of Maroon 5 - received the 2601st star on Hollywood's Walk of Fame. (I didn't realize there were so many?!)

    On your ride, find a star, as long as it's not on an American flag. On this hunt, we don't want the word, we want the shape, but lets limit it to ones with 5 or 6 points only.

    Happy hunting!
