Round Up

Three years. I have been blogging for 3 years. I've wanted to quit quite a few times, but I'm still having fun, so I guess I will continue to blog.

Not only is it the 40th anniversary for the Smithsonian Institution Libraries(I'll post more about the libraries anniversary in the coming year), but it's the 100th anniversary of the publication of Anne of Green Gables.

Two documentaries that I am looking forward to seeing: Dr. Bronner's Magic Soapbox and the 13 Grandmothers documentary. Here's the trailer for the 13 Grandmothers docuemntary. More information on the 13 Grandmothers here.

Here is the press release for the 2007 additions to the National Film Registry.

Many moons ago I wanted to be a midwife, and I still am drawn to anything the least bit midwifery. Midwife with a Knife is a blog written by an Ob-Gyn. I love her writing and have added it to my must read list. (maybe this year I'll finally add a blogroll to my blog).

Take a gander at these holiday/winter drinks inspired by Charles Dickens.

It seems like every year there are certain commercials that cause me to get my ample butt off of the couch and dance around to the music like a maniac. This holiday season it was the Korbel Champagne commercial. A. and I at first thought the song was by The Pussycat Dolls, but it's not. It's by Bitter Sweet and it's The Mating Game.

Big list of sites that teach you how to do stuff.

I leave you with the Sesame Street Video Archive. It's not comprehensive (yet), but the archive is keyword tagged and searchable.

Now I'm off to do some "Zerotasking [v.] Doing nothing ". (from the Ridiculous Business Jargon Dictionary).

"The most beautiful experience we can have is the mysterious ... the fundamental emotion which stands at the cradle of true art and true science." - Albert Einstein

Three years IS a long time but I'm glad you are sticking with it.
