It's been an exhausting and busy week so I haven't had time to collect the usual number of Interesting Stuff items. Here is a shorter than usual list for this week.
On August 15, 16 and 17 in 1969 what became known as the Woodstock Music Festival was held on Max Yasgur's farm in Bethel, New York. In 2017, the site was placed on the National Register of Historic Places by the U.S. Department of the Interior.
”Today, the historic music festival is marked with a small monument that offers a panoramic view of the original festival site.
“The site is adjacent to the Bethel Woods Center for the Arts, which contains the Museum at Bethel Woods, which features displays and artifacts related to the Woodstock festival and the 1960s counterculture that it came to represent.”
There are many more photos by Rhapsodic Bohemian at Atlas Obscura.
I was there in 1969. Were you?

DOG DISCOVERS MUD PUDDLE
As Big Geek Daddy explains:
”A dog named Toby is out walking with his dog friends when he discovers a mud puddle that is calling out to him to play in. He can’t resist the urge to jump in and take a mud bath on a cold winter day and needless to say it is quite the experience.”
