Round Up

NTSB-I applaud you, but how is this going to be policed? The same inept way littering is policed I suppose.

The Wall of the Dead-a memorial to fallen naturalists.

Very cool speech accent archive.

A lost Jane Austen portrait has been discovered.

Drum Roll please.....Introducing the 2011 National Toy Hall of Fame inductees.

Sheepherders of Northern Nevada and arborglyphs-this is fascinating. Normally I loathe when people do things to trees. I hate when people staple notices and election paraphernalia to trees because I feel it damages the trees. I wonder why the sheepherders doing it doesn't get my back up too. Hmmm!!!

Also, why does it take the folks who plaster trees, green spaces and telephone poles with their annoying forms of communique so long to retrieve those notices that then end up as litter that nobody does anything about? Sorry, I got off on a tagent.

I saw this Don't Break the Ice game the other day. Brought back a lot of memories.

I love these Mercury Glass owls .

Snow in a Can.

Tutorial for simple paper stars. (I'll let you know just how simple they are )

Great story about a town in England that is becoming a garden.

There seems to be some controversy over exactly what is the smallest library, or here.

Love this Etsy store-Kilted Woman . Crazy about anything Scottish (don't fret Scandinavia-I'm still ga ga over you as well).

This is a wonderful project-Library as Incubator.

Did you know the Steuben Company closed its only remaining factory-so sad.

NPR's Best Books of 2011 list.

This is my last post for 2011. I hope that you and yours have a wonderful holiday. May your days be merry and bright...
