Round Up

Congratulations Venus and Rafael.

I want the Bookeye Book Scanner. I want every library across the land to have one, and I want one for my own personal use.

The Pathfinder plant very cool indeed.

Right this minute I am listening to Nat sing Mona Lisa on my Pandora Radio station. It's very easy to set up your own "station" and lots of fun.

I love learning about new islands. I still harbor my fantasy about being able to live on my own private island. No cars, just horses, bicycles and maybe a golf cart. I sometimes think I seek a serenity that no longer exists.

I came across 2 blogs about private islands- The Private Islands Blog and The Official Private Islands Blog.

One of these blogs directed me to the Solvetsky Islands. Here is a New York Times article on the Solvetsky Islands. And a New York Times slide show of island sites. What a fascinating place to visit. I'll have to add it to my ever-expanding list of places to go.

Whenever I see craft projects like the Linen Pear Sachet Tutorial, I always wish we would have made things like this when I was a Scout.

Also, a tutorial on how to make tuxedo and wedding dress strawberries.

Have a good week.

Hot town, summer in the city
Back of my neck getting dirty and gritty
Been down, isn't it a pity
Doesn't seem to be a shadow in the city
