Round Up

Well, it's the last day of February and for me it's always sort of a depressing day. I know, I know, spring is coming, yadda, yadda, yadda. I love the spring flowers and blooming trees, but I loathe daylight savings time, the sun and warm weather. I need to move to Longyearbyen and see if I can get a job in the seed vault. Oh I would love that. Cold weather, snow, sweaters all year long and limited population. (this is my first spew of hatred for Daylight Savings Time (DST), it won't be my last)

Oh, my belove Bayeux Tapestry has been animated. (As soon as I stop being lazy I'll set my blog up for videos).

A nice educational Presidents Blog.

I would love to attend the WorldChampionship Cheese Contest. Plus, it's held in Wisconsin, which I bet is nice and cold and snowy.

Singing searches. How very technologically cool! You know when you only know a few bars of a song and no matter how hard you try you can't think of the name of the song. Does that not just drive you nuts? Apparently it must have driven the inventors of the Midomi search engine nuts as well.

Geesh-it's about freakin' time. Government Information-Ask a Librarian.

Do you have neighbor issues? Are they inconsiderate, do they not take their trash cans inside in a timely matter, are they just plain old nasty and filthy people? Or do you have neighbors that are angels? Rotten Neighbor allows the user to post about the good and the bad, which makes me think they should change their name.

This would definitely be a trip I would enjoy. Tactile Travel gives unique tours of Italy where the traveler can visit textile factories and yarn stores and much more. What a very clever idea.

Have been reading and enjoying this blog for a couple of weeks-Reading Archives. This blog is written by a Library and Information Science professor and he writes about the importance of archives. He also mentions quite a few books that I have added to me to be read pile. I am also shocked that this blog has been around since 2006, and I am just discovering it.

That's all for today folks. Have a nice weekend.
