Round Up

Well, my girl's stamp comes out next Wednesday. Oh, how I love Ella. There's so much I could say about her, but Afrobella's eloquent post of January 10th,2007, says it so much better than I could. She also has some great anecdotes about the great lady.

Since it's finally winter here in the East, some of you might want to warm your tootsies.

Ahh, Melvil Dewey would be so proud.

ALA (American Library Association) has come out with the best free reference sites. This link is the combined index for the years 1996-2006.

For some odd reason A. and I missed the airing of Bleak House when it was on the first time. We started watching it last week, and I realized I didn't know all that much about this particular work by Dickens. I decided to do some research and it led me to this. Make sure your sound is turned on.

I finally found the cloth or felt trees that I hope to make for this years mantle village. More here.

A friend told me about the Buttonarium. I have been having a lot of fun and learning a lot perusing this online button museum. There is every kind of button you can imagine,and then some. I have been looking at all of the cool airline buttons. Great site. Thanks K. for the tip.

Have a nice weekend and a nice MLK day.

"Once, when we were playing at the Apollo, Holiday was working a block away at the Harlem Opera House. Some of us went over between shows to catch her, and afterwards we went backstage. I did something then, and I still don't know if it was the right thing to do - I asked her for her autograph." Ella Fitzgerald

"I believe that unarmed truth and unconditional love will have the final word in reality. That is why right, temporarily defeated, is stronger than evil triumphant." Martin Luther King Jr., Accepting Nobel Peace Prize, Dec. 10, 1964

Yes sounds like you are on a roll today. I just wanted to stop by and to thank you for your wonderful comment on my blog. I can't believe all the wonderful comments people left me on my post about dsylexia. It has really humbled me but at the same time I have discovered there are a lot of people out there that are suffering from it or knows someone who is. One would think that in this day an age that signs of dyslexia are so prevelant that if a teacher feels a child is demonstrating these traits that the child be tested. Ah what a dream that would be.

Thanks again for all your kind words....

Glad you are back, Ms. Libby,

and more terrific links to share. Thank you! The Ella anecdotes and tribute are sweet. Loved the Bleak House animation too.

Shameful, I am a member of RUSA but hadn't seen their grand list of links.

You keep me busy!
