Round Up

Stumbled upon Yahoo Green the other day.

Open government and freedom of information-Sunshine Week

I don't know about Meryl Street portraying Julia Child in the blog/book and now movie Julie/Julia. Not that I don't think Meryl Streep is not an amazing actress, but I just don't know.

Massachusetss Institute of Technology (MIT) Open CourseWare offers the curriculum of all of its courses, that's correct, all of its courses free to anyone who wants to partake.

Since this is Womens History Month, which I hate. Okay, I think I've explained before how I hate these months dedicated to different minorites. I guess it is a good thing if it helps educated the young uns about blacks, women, hispanics and Native Americans, but why not just include these groups in the damn textbooks in the firstplace you bigoted textbook authors?

Okay I got that off of my chest for now. Anywho, back to Womens History Month. Check out the American Women Through Time site.

Edith Wharton's incredible home The Mount is facing foreclosure.

I found another blog devoted to one of my favorite stores-Breakfast at Anthropologie.

The Wheel of Lunch is way too much fun. Enter your zipcode and let it rip.

Su Blackwell does some amazing book-cut sculptures.

Since it's St. Patrick's Day I leave you with an Irish blessing.

Wishing you a rainbow
For sunlight after showers—
Miles and miles of Irish smiles
For golden happy hours—
Shamrocks at your doorway
For luck and laughter too,
And a host of friends that never ends
Each day your whole life through!
