Round Up

-----. I have become so enamored of cake stands of late, and this one is gorgeous. Must have, must have!!!

LOC's (Library of Congress)Wise Guide, a monthly Web magazine of historical highlights and fascinating facts from the Library of Congress.

Take the companies country of origin quiz.

Here's another fun quiz-corporate logos.

If you are in need of free legal forms check out Docstoc.

Mount Tremper, New York is home to the World's Largest Kaleidoscope. I remember the first kaleidoscope I had as a kid. I'm very color-oriented anyway and I would sit for long periods of time just holding it up to my eye and watching the magic happen. I would love to see this large one in Mount Tremper.

Danish artist Peter Callesin does some amazing work. Look at these intricate papercuts. Seeing Mr Callesin's work reminds me of Victoria magazine's artist-in-residence Sharon Sowell's beautiful, delicate work. Her delicate silhouettes are incredible too. Remarkable what these two people can do with paper and scissors.

The Availability of Sweet Tea in Virginia as a Representation of the Mason-Dixon Line. Need I say more.

It's 10:00 p.m. and you are just dying for a Snickers Bar or maybe a soda and some chips, but your larder is bare. You are already in your jams and don't want to get dressed and run out to the nearest store. If you live in the Foggy Bottom section of Washington, DC you are in luck. Just access DC Snacks from your computer and order your favorite munchie. They will deliver it to right to you.

50 Best Cult Books.

Have a good weekend. All of you moms out there Happy Mother's Day.

"Some mothers are kissing mothers and some are scolding mothers, but it is love just the same, and most mothers kiss and scold together." ~Pearl S. Buck

Fabulous, fabulous round up again, Ms. Libby.

I especially enjoyed the World's Largest Kaleidoscopes -- whirling Stalins and pot leaves, whee -- and the 50 Best Cult books (most I knew, some never heard of, all very amusingly presented)!

best wishes from your laundress
