Friday Round Up

Okay, one more Wikipedia list. Car-free places.

I was reading the excellent Boomer Chronicles blog and got the shock of my life. Donny Osmond is a grandfather. Yep-you read that right. The only magazine for grandparenst Grand has a feature on Donny and his thoughts on grandparenting. Thansk Boomer Chronicles.

I came across Gush magazine by accident and spent a ridiculous amount of time looking at items like the celebrity weight scale, massive jean ball art and timestrips.

Sadly I have found that the little village where I reside has not been the site of any films or documetaries. Check out Movie Mappr to see if Hollywood has come to your town.

Bet you didn't know that Henry David Thoreau has a blog.

I have been endlessly fascinated with nuns and was pleasantly surprised to see that there are some blogging nuns in the blogosphere. Nunblog, Sr. Marianne Lorraine, Sr. Bernadette in Rome and Sr. Helen Prejean's Blog.

Trying to find a B&B to escape to for the weekend. Pillows and Pancakes should be able to help you with that. Love the name.

I am not even going to introduce this next link. Just go to the Generator Blog and get ready to have some fun.

Growing up in rural America I think I just took for granted being able to see tractors, hay wagons, balers, etc. Most of the kids had miniature versions of these farm mainstays and would spend hours pretending that they were working on their own farms even if their farm was only in the family room or in the back yard. I can picture spending hours in the National Farm Toy Museum. Tractor heaven.

It's National Medical Librarians Month and Canadian Library Month. If there are any medical librarians reading this yours truly would love a medical librarian job (WDC area)so please give me a shout if you know of any place that's hiring.

Have a wonderful weekend.

"Do not be too moral. You may cheat yourself out of much life. Aim above morality. Be not simply good; be good for something." Henry David Thoreau

"The character inherent in the American people has done all that has been accomplished; and it would have done somewhat more, if the government had not sometimes got in its way." Henry David Thoreau

Hello Ms. Libby,

Thanks for more great commentary and interesting links.

Scary to hear about Grandad Donny Osmond! The Thoreau blog is somebody's labor of love.

I have fallen in love with Gush Magazine and that Bees Knees site from your earlier post.

Hi Laundress,

I'm so glad it's working. I haven't done anything different so it must be Blogger. Take care and thanks for the positive comments. Libby

Hi Laundress,

I'm so glad that the blog is able to be seen. Must have been some odd Blogger snafu. Thanks for the nice comments. Take care, Libby
