Round Up

(If this post is all smushed together-forgive me. I have edited numerous times, but it's not taking-GRRRRR)

I have been looking at a lot of book catalogs of late and I came across a couple books on clouds, which led me to The Cloud Appreciation Society. Check out the photo gallery.

This week was National Library Week and Tuesday was National Library Workers Day. At my library we did SQUAT, ZILCH , NADA.

I might be a bit late to the fandom, but I love Cube News. I am not in a cubicle now ,but I have been in the past. This woman is hilarious and she is spot on with her wonderful interpretations of cube life.

This little bird is a Spectacled Eider (Somateria fischeri). It's very cute, it's endangered and it tends to hang out in cold weather places. It's a duck, a water bird, which I love. Other than that I have no idea why I had on my round-up list.

I'm a bit late, but I came upon the 2007 State Easter Eggs. (who knew??)
A Flickr group has been started called 07_07_07. The idea is to post photographs from around the world that are taken on July 7, 2007.

Speaking of photos, has anyone else besides me become totally captivated by Shorpy, the 100-Year Old Photo Blog? I like so many of these images, but I really like the image posted today (4/20) and the group photos. I love group photos even without knowing anyone in the picture.
This is a UK site so the prospect of me ordering anything from them are slim, but I just love the look of the site and they have some very cool items.
Thats all folks. Enjoy your weekend.

Hiya Libby,

More great links... and I like the randomness of tossing in an eider duck, just because! White House eggs: very weird and my state's egg especially so... wonder how the state egg boards find their artists?

Best of all: THANK YOU for Shorpy, what a cool site. Never seen that one before, love it.
