Round Up

I don't think there is anything better than an apple cider doughnut in the fall. Now I am generally a glazed doughnut person, but these cake style doughnuts are excellent. Doughnut or donut???

I love this scarf.

Why do we use definite articles for some place names?

Cute bowling knights.

Make your own candy bars.

For so long Votivo were my favorite candles. Red Currant is my favorite. I really like the packaging of Linnea's Lights.

Things Librarians Fancy.

Looking for a tutorial-tutorialsphere.

If you like me are missing Domino magazine, take a look at Lonny. Lonny is an online shelter magaine. Very nice. I still like to hold a magazine in my hands, but this is still a nice change.

McSweeney's latest issue is all about newspapers.

Watusi cows. Okay, now Lurch the Wonder Watusi.

Author Annie Proulx donated her papers to the New York Public Library. I have said before that I am an author groupie. I think if I ever saw Ms. Proulx's papers I would turn into a giggling, nervous schoolgirl.

According to Country Home, souvenir state plates are HOT right now. I was going to start collecting these a couple of years ago, but then I got swayed by map handkerchiefs and gave up on the plate idea.

I grew up in rural America and my father had huge gardens. What makes produce grow besides water and tender loving care-manure. He would use horse manure for certain gardens, and chicken manure for others. I can remember coming home on the school bus with the windows down and realizing, "Oh yes, Daddy has put chicken manure down for next years crops.". A pungent odor one will never forget. All of this probably has something to do with why I found this article about manure fascinating.


Star Wars according to a 3-year old.
