Round Up

R.I.P. Rev. Fred Shuttlesworth

This wedding band with your spouse's fingerprints is lovely.

25 ways to wear a scarf in 4.5 minutes-very cool video.

Pumpkin facts.

Oh my, fudge-covered Ritz.

After you come home from trick or treating with your little ones why not read them to sleep with one of the 10 best Halloween books for children-of all ages.

The Collection A Day blog is now a book.

Lifeboat Tea has a Facebook page.

Historic U.S. Ghosts.

Interesting article on punctuation.

I think that volunteer vacation opportunities are great. I sometimes think that the volunteer is getting more out of the experience than the community that they are "supposed to be helping." It's not always the best thing to presume that we Westerners know what's best for other cultures. I also don't think it's always best to just through money at a situation, and to also go in and dig a well and then leave. Why not teach folks how to be self sufficient?

With that being said, I would love to volunteer with World Vets.

That's all I have for today. Have a spooky Halloween.

Round Up

R.I.P. Steve Jobs-there's not much more than I can say.

Congratulations to the three Nobel Peace prize winners. Kudos ladies!!!!

I am thrilled that folks are protesting, but what we really, really need is for people to vote. It's a quieter way to make your voice heard.

Brownie-battered poured over oreos-Yum. (back-in-the day I would have loved this-I could eat it now, but I would probably end up in a sugar coma).

I love this wrought iron snowfall gauge. Available here.

Two fun periodic tables-Periodic table of Dessert and the Harry Potter Periodic Table.

Appropriate for this time of year-The Apple Lover's Cookbook(W.W. Norton) by Amy Traverso.

If you are having problems with people stealing your lunch at work I guarantee they will think twice if you pack your edibles in these Anti-theft lunch bags.

A grilled cheese slideshow.Fascinating article about how the author found 400 report cards from the 1920's. The report cards are all from the Manhattan Trade School.

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

"Your work is going to fill a large part of your life, and the only way to be truly satisfied is to do what you believe is great work. And the only way to do great work is to love what you do. If you haven't found it yet, keep looking. Don't settle. As with all matters of the heart, you'll know when you find it." Steve Jobs
