Round Up

Manual of Traffic Signs
If someone comes knocking on your doors on Saturday, September 20, 2008, it might be the Million Doors for Peace.

Already getting geared up for Halloween-the Fright Catalog.

It's great to see some positive things happening in New Orleans since Katrina.

Read this beautiful, thoughtful essay on why Sarah Palin is no friend to children with special needs.

It's been awhile since I posted an interesting reference book, so here is one I just found out about yesterday: The Elvis Encyclopedia.

These "jacket potatoes" are adorable.

Interesting blog, but not for the squeamish-Morbid Anatomy.

And something else not for the squeamish is the Unidentified Decedent Reporting System (UDRS) site.

Whenever I find out that something is extinct, or becoming extinct, that thought always gives me this sad, hollow feeling. I don't care what it is that will no longer exist, I just find it a bit heart breaking. I feel that way about these 10 endangered languages too.
Oh, I like these vintage map necklaces.

Yarn from old newspapers. I love the recycling aspect, but I wonder what this feels like. I wonder if it's extremely knitable. Hmmmm.
Wonderful, wonderful images in the Science and Society Picture Library.

Learn to identify the flora in your own neighborhood and take part in The 100 Species Challenge.

I leave you with this image of what's to come.

This quote is from the Einstein quote of the day: "It's not that I'm so smart, it's just that I stay with problems longer." Albert Einstein

Libby, thanks for the link! My baby is FINALLY asleep and I have just sat down to read your blog with a cup of Weight Watchers Lentil and Bacon soup in hand (I know. I know it's all sex, drugs and rock and roll in this house!) Loving what I have read already.
