Are you living the weisure life?

Look at these Royal Teabags!

Listen to an NPR story about small communities, or hamlets, around Lexington, Kentucky founded by freed slaves. They have names like Clabber Bottom, Frogtown and Zion Hill. Photographer Sarah Hoskins has been photographing the folks who live in these towns and she tells some of their stories.

Oh boy, the Mommins have a movie!!!

The 2010 Cookbook of the Year is Rose's Heavenly Cakes by Rose Levy Beranbaum.

I may have mentioned the wonderful Instructables sight in a previous post, but it is so wonderful it deserves multiple postings.

The Daily Library blogger works in a library and takes a photograph every day.

I should have mentioned Harriet the Poetry Foundation last month since April is National Poetry month, but better late than never.

Welcome to Butch Anthony's very creative home and the Doo Nanny festival.

Watch Kevin Bales' TED talk about modern slavery. This exceptional talk sheds light on an issue that I think most people are unaware.

Interesting-corn flake crunch french toast.

Interesting Slate article on how future historians will use the Twitter archives.

New York's Museum of America Finance has an exhibit Scandal! Financial Crime, Chicanery and Corruption that Rocked America.

I like Shanna Murray's wall and window decals.

It is sold out, but look at this Manhattan Subway tape.

The most beautiful ferry rides in the United States.

I've been all about cupcakes the last few years and Ming Makes Cupcakes has wonderful, creative cupcake recipes.

Follow David and Janet Carle as they travel around the world following the 38th parallel. They are seeking water-related environmental and cultural connections.

The Darwin Song Project took place in 2009 the bicentennial of Charles Darwin's birth. Folk artists gathered in Shrewsbury, England (the place of Darwin's birth) and wrote songs that had a relevance to Darwin's life.

Fictions talking animals.

That's all I have for this week. Have a good one.
