Friday Round Up

According to the Washington Post the American Red Cross is borrowing money and has admitted to underserving black areas. Well, what else is new. I am so glad that A. and I chose to donate money elsewhere for the Katrina victims. They will never, ever, ever get another red dime from me or my nice,rich, red A-blood.

Knitting-yes, Crocheting-want to learn, quilting-love quilts, but can't see myself quilting-maybe a group quilting would be fun-Embroidiering-learned how as a kid-haven't picked it up since then. I always thought embroidering was fun, but I just seemed to take to knitting more. Perhaps if I had known I could make gorgeous art like Orly Cogan I may have stuck with it. WARNING!! If you are easily offended you may want to skip Ms. Cogan's art. Personally I think it's exquisite and wish that I could own some of it.

Speaking of quilts I was perusing the archive of the Astronomy Picture of the Day and this quilt caught my eye.

The other day I was talking with someone about cereal. I don't care for cereal. I've eaten lots of goodies that are made with cereal-Rice Krispie bars, no bake cookies, chex mix, but I can't deal with anything soggy and I've never been that crazy about milk. Our conversation wandered into Quisp and Quake. I had never heard of these cereals until a few years ago. A friend on antoher job was talking about them and I told her I had never heard of them. She educated me on everything I wanted to know about Quisp and Quake, but was afraid to ask. What I needed was Topher's Breakfast Cereal Character Guide.

Speaking of cereal wouldn't this dispenser from Target be a great cereal storage unit? Storage plus dispensing. This device could get in the way of what I've come to see as the serial cereal eaters hobby-cereal box reading.

I leave you this weekend with some true food porn. These are some of the prettiest decorated cookies I have seen in a long time. Simple and nice. Thanks John & Kristie.
