Round Up

Saddened to hear that comic actor Harvey Korman passed away. If you are old enough to have watched that Carol Burnett show you will recall how wonderful he was in all of those sketches.

Check out Amy Walker and her accents. Amazing!!!

Even if you aren't a yoga practitioner I think you might get a kick out of the book Born Yogis.

America's Most Endangered Historic Places. Very sad to see California's State Parks listed.

The Progressive Historian has started an Obscure Online Historical Database thread. Make sure to read the comments, and add an obscure database of your own.

The Typo Eradication Advancement League (TEAL) is searching for typos around America. This would be so much fun. I want to join in.

It seems that every few months I mention Shorpy on this blog, but I can't help it. I love black and white photography and this site is the bomb.

Two architecture sites that came to my attention this week: America's Favorite Architecture
and the Archi-Tourist wiki. The viewer can vote for their favorite architecture out of the listing provided. Quite a few picks from the WDC area. Archi-Tourist is a travel-based wiki guide to architecture around the world.

Someone on my favorite Etsy was selling photographs of Audrey Hepburn and her pet deer Pippin. Who knew?

Love this idea. People can help rare book restorarion by adopting a book at one of the Princeton University Libraries.

I have to get one of these black false shamrocks. I keep saying I'm going to start a black and white garden in my back yard. This one has more of a purple tinge to it, which is fine by me.

Yes, we have too many camp chairs or I would have purchased the cool Cynthia Rowley chairs at Target. (well at least 1 pink one for me. Somehow I can't see A. sitting in a pink chair at one of the jazz festivals this summer). She also has a pink garden hose. Hmmmm......

Look at these incredible book tables.

That's all for the round up this week. Everyone have a great weekend.

I love this! I saw this a while ago and forwarded it to someone I know who teaches accents for actors.
