Round Up

What a clever idea. The Historical Society of Pennsylvania (my home state)has a blog recording their work in processing the Chew Family Papers.

One of my favorite highways also has a blog.

More peel and stick goodies-chalk board.

I think it's a bit hard to remember a time before You Tube. Here are 50 Smart Video Collections on You Tube.

Maybe bus notes are something recent, but I had never heard of such a thing before. And there's even a special way to fold them.

Mustaches of the 19th century. I like a nicely groomed stache. My dad has his sort of Clark Gable stache, and A. has a very light stache. When we first started seeing each other I asked him if he ever had a beard, and he just laughed. He said it would probably take him 50 years to grow a beard. I could probably grow one in a couple of weeks. Oh, estrogen was such a nice thing to have.

Kitchen Aid's 90th anniversary is approaching and they have come out withthis special mixer bowl.

I haven't read Frederick Kaufman's book American Stomach yet, but it looks like one I am going to enjoy. He has a blog, and the National Book Critics Circle Board of Directors blog has an interview with him about the book.

I told A. before that whenever I watch some of the programs on the Food Network it was like watching food porn. The way the camera person films the food, the close ups of the chef or cooks hands, all of it just reminds me of porn. It always has. And before you get the wrong idea I am not a porn junkie. I've seen some porn in my time, and as I have said before, I am more upset with scenes of violence than I could ever be with sex. Anyway read the interview and see what you think.

Another great idea-PicAnswers. Have an image that you are clueless about. Post your image and wait for an answer.

The Colors of Your College Degree-lots of information about academic dress and more.

That's all for this week folks. Have a nice weekend.
