Round Up

Just a few items this week.

First, a couple of comments.

Dr. Anita Hill-you have more class in your little finger than......

Juan Williams-never a fan of yours. If memory serves you made some extremely sexist comments back in the day, but FOX NEWS. Freakin' FOX NEWS. Have you no shame!!!

Enough of that.

Bite into the Cherpumple.

Best Halloween decorations ever-Grandinroad. They actually have some very nice non-holiday related items as well.

Very cute muffin pan sponge. It really is an event for me when I receive the King Arthur Flour Company catalog in the mail.

These are the absolute best candy apples I have ever seen. And Matt's Winter Cocktail sound pretty tastey too.

This is so naughty-My First Dictionary.

Famous inboxes of fictional characters-this time Miss Elizabeth Bennet. Love this.

I am crazy about frosted window film (even though I don't have a window where it could be used) and clear acrylic party buckets. I lived in a few apartments where the frosted window film would have come in very handy.

Think Be4 You Speak is a wonderful idea. It's a shame that we have to have actual movements to teach people to be sensitive and considerate of others. I am so sick of it still being "okay" to make derogatory remarks about people's sexuality, about people's age and about weight-challenged individuals. This is exemplified night after night on some of the garbage that is on television. It's 2010 and you still have people writing scripts with this kind of derogatory dialogue. It's sickening and we should be better than that.

Drum Roll Please-The Israel Antiquities Authority and Google bring you the Dead Sea Scrolls.

Very interesting article on trap rooms. Trap rooms are a deliberate error placed into maps to attempt to catch copyright infringement by rival companies.

And speaking of maps-these are incredible.

That's all for this week. Have a tranquil weekend. And remember if you are able to vote early (A. and I are voting after work today) please do so or wait until Election Day-the most important thing is to VOTE!!!
