Round Up

Just in case you were curious as to the real identity of Flo the Progressives Insurance woman.

National Union Catalog of Manuscript Collections.

Have you wondered what happened to the Quinn Cummings, the little girl that starred in The Goodbye Girl, the original with Marsha Mason, not the latest version (not as good IMHO) with Patricia (overpopulationist) Heaton. Well, she was nominated for an Oscar for her performance, and now she's an inventor and a blogger. Ms. Cummings invented the Hip Hugger, a sling-type baby carrying device. Her blog is the QC Report.

If you are a fan of Moleskinerie, then you may also enjoy Notebookism. Notebookism is a little scant on posts, but what is there is interesting. We had this discussion a few times in library school, but is it true that most library workers are office supply junkies? I know I am.

I don't know if anyone watched The Adventures of Brisco County, Jr when it was on, but I did and I loved it. It was a combination of western with a science fiction/pop culture bent. And it starred the irrepressible Bruce Campbell as lawman Brisco County, Jr. One of the supporting characters was Lord Bowler, a bounty hunter who would team up with Brisco County to hunt down the bad guys. I just found out last week that Julius Carry the actor who portrayed Lord Bowler passed away. He died from complications of pancreatic cancer. He was 56. He was a fine character actor.

Dark Island, the home of Singer (sewing machine folks) Castle, is for sale for only $22 million.

Martha Stewart bloopers. You must watch these they are very funny.

Have a great weekend and a good Labor Day.
