Round Up

I came across a bit about the Grace Lee Project. Has anyone seen this documentary? Sounds really good, I may have to purchase it.

Wonderful article about growing old by Jon Carroll.

I have mentioned a few times in this blog how I am ga ga about Judi Dench. Must have this.

I've been following the story about the Gee's Bend Quilts. Extreme Craft's June 19th post discusses the situation. Extreme Craft has an interesting post from July 18th about Episcopalians and one of Grace Cathedral's stained glass windows. This window has an image of Einstein. How cool is that?

It goes without saying that Google Maps is the bomb. Here is a map of textile museums in the U.S.

I was wondering how long it would take for someone to create a social networking site for all of the bibliophiles. Someone did and it's called Litminds.

Very informative website about Mildred Wirt Benson, author of many books, including many of the Nancy Drew books. (the site seems to be having problems with some of the links)

I spent a lot of time when I was growing up playing board games. I still love them. I thougth I knew most of the board games that were out there, but good grief, I couldn't have been more wrong. Board Geek has games that I have never heard of before. There's also Boardgame News. Whenever I think of boardgames I get this auditory memory of the board game Trouble. Fun, easy game with that Pop-O-Matic dice roller that makes that clop-clop sound? I can't think of words to describe that sound.

Cheese blog-Curd Nerds.

I'm not going to start collecting these, but all things map are of an interest to me. I collect map hankies. I should say I collected them until they got a bit too pricey on eBay. Every once in awhile I come across one that's not too expensive, but that's a rarity. I don't want to even think about my lust for map tableclothes. Let's face it, I'm just a map ho, which leads me to these Maptotes. I think I'll have to wait to purchase until they feature Pittsburgh.

Have a sweet tooth? Want something unusual that most of the other kids probably won't be ingesting. What about a Watermelon Flavored Sigmund Freud Head Lollipop?

That's all folks.

The Grace Lee film sounds a bit like the Angela Shelton film, where the filmmaker looks up everyone in the US with her name and interviews them. I actually know a Grace Lee!

Okay Ms. Libby,

You stopped me in my tracks with Grace Lee.


Must find out all about it. Must see it. Must see if I can get a screening permission and show it at my local public library.

Now, off to expore your other links. You always have such good ones!
