Seven Things I Love (11/9/2020)

1. This Colorized Video from 1893 of a Snowball Fight – done by Dmitriy Badin – I’d mute the video, the music is a bit annoying. It’s delightful to watch thought. (I prefer the way Denis Shiryaev creates his videos. He goes the extra step of adding sounds that match whatever is taking place, forContinue reading “Seven Things I Love (11/9/2020)”

Seven Things I Love 8-17-2020

1. The Technicolor Fashion Show Scene from the original version of the movie ‘The Women’ (1939) – I suspect more people are familiar with the 2008 film version of ‘The Women’ starring Meg Ryan, Annette Bening, Eva Mendes, Debra Messing, and Jada Pinkett-Smith. The casts of both films are entirely women, you never once seeContinue reading “Seven Things I Love 8-17-2020”

Five Things I Love (7-27-2020)

1. Dr. Anthony Fauci on the cover of ‘In Style’ magazine. Yowzah! The article is an interview with Dr. Fauci and his wife, Dr. Christine Grady, and it’s super interesting. I think it’s amazing that we finally made a rock star out of a scientist! 2. This article calling for the return of Parasols –Continue reading “Five Things I Love (7-27-2020)”

Five Things I Love (4/20/2020)

Quarantine Book Shelf – A friend of mine tagged me on Facebook so I would see it. The person who had posted it wrote “two smart and saucy librarians posted this…” but later I found it attributed to a Mr. Phil Shaw. Whoever is responsible (most likely Mr. Shaw) it’s SUPER clever and BEAUTIFUL! 2.Continue reading “Five Things I Love (4/20/2020)”

Quarantine Survival Guide (yes another one, but this one is written by a recently recently retired Librarian)

As of yesterday (March 24th) there were 17 states that had declared statewide Stay-at-Home orders. An additional 10 states had issued partial orders, meaning either cities or counties within the state had stay-at-home orders in place. Frankly, I think the entire country should be shut down – it would be the fastest/most efficient way toContinue reading “Quarantine Survival Guide (yes another one, but this one is written by a recently recently retired Librarian)”
