carliehope:

we’re all rooting for you Sunday, don’t let us down.
at least it’ll “cool down” some of next week?

From the age of 2 until the age of 10, this was my hometown. In the summer the heat (and the smog) could get pretty bad.

I think “from ages 2 to 10” has a way of branding itself on you. I mean, I don’t remember living anywhere before Redlands, and even through I’ve only been back briefly a few times since then, on some level I’ve always thought of that as “where I’m from.”

I just wanted to tell you “thank you,” because I held my first spider today, without help, and without freaking out too terribly. It was a little jumping spider and he was adorable as all get-out. I feel since following your blog, it’s helped my fear of spiders go away. so, thank you!!

Aw…  that’s awesome!   I’m happy you are less fearful of the spiders, as they’re pretty awesome!

Posted in honor of Sean “No Frame Can Hold Me” Persaud, because when I read his comment this is the first thing I thought of.

And then I thought, hey: Sean as Prince Charming in a musical parody. He’s tall, right? Why should Sinead have all the fun?

Fun fact I just learned: After meeting during the original Broadway production, Kim Crosby (Cinderella) and Robert Westenberg (Prince Charming/The Wolf) fell in love and married in real life. They live today in Springfield, Missouri with their children Emily, Katherine, and Joe.

Ever after.

The Into The Woods trailer is OUT! Check it out :)

yes there is no singing. But darn it that instrumental of Stay is something.

This is going to either be amazingly wonderful or amazingly bad. Either way, I’m going to have an amazing time at the movies on Christmas.

shipwreckedcomedy:

On reaching 10,000 subscribers and the vaguest of hints on our upcoming project(s)!

THANK YOU.

Much love,

Shipwrecked.

A. You weren’t kidding about the “vaguest” part.

B. The absence of a DP is causing me tiny but hard-to-ignore angst around the issue of Sean’s head getting cut off.

C. I should not be having feels in response to this. But here we are.

She said “I’m intrigued”. I then tried to explain the basic plot of the show, and failed completely. So next week we’re going to watch it together!

Wait; what? There’s a trailer already??

Now that I’ve got some distance on Jane – I just wanted to say (and I’m not sure I’m whether this comes off as weird) but this past year it has been lovely to read your thoughts on the episodes, and our work, and your theories, and letters in the tag. I have loved all the pictures of your mugs, and socks, all your exclamations. It’s been fascinating to read your criticisms and compliments alike. You may all have found friends in Jane, but I have found many lovely friends in you. 

Thanks Alysson. I just teared up reading this because watching the series along with you & everyone in the aoje tag was something special.

Despite being the smallest bird of prey in North America, the American Kestrel is a fierce and specialized predator. Like other birds, the kestrel can see ultraviolet light. This allows it to see urine trails left by rodents. It is like seeing a neon trail to their prey. This is one of the many interesting facts about the most colorful and smallest bird of prey in North America. They can be seen perched on signs and other man-made objects near the Tumey, Panoche, and Griswold Hills.

From the Live Aid article at Wikipedia:

Queen galvanised the stadium with some of their greatest hits, in which lead singer Freddie Mercury at times led the entire crowd of 72,000 in thundering unison refrains. In their 20 minute set the band opened with “Bohemian Rhapsody” and closed with “We Are the Champions”. They extensively rehearsed their performance at London’s Shaw Theatre. Prior to their taking the stage, Queen’s sound engineer covertly switched out the limiters that had been installed on the venue’s sound system so the performance would be louder than the others. Queen’s performance on that day has since been voted by more than 60 artists, journalists and music industry executives as the greatest live performance in the history of rock music.

On This Day in History – The BLM Was Established

On July 16, 1946, the General Land Office and the Grazing Service merged and became the Bureau of Land Management within the Department of Interior.  With historical roots spanning 200+ years, the BLM now manages many places — like ghost towns, mining camps, and homesteads — that give visitors a glimpse into what life may have been like for early settlers and pioneers.

Pictured here is the BLM-managed Garnet Ghost town in MontanaA young nation expanded into the Montana territory in the mid-1860s. Many scoured the mountains for gold and other precious metals. Settlements grew overnight around mining claims.  The town of Garnet was born in 1895, and within several years, hundreds of people called it home.  The blasts of dynamite and the shouts of miners echoed through the gulches.

But Garnet was not destined to last.  Today, most of the town is publicly owned, and managed by the Bureau of Land Management. The BLM stabilizes and preserves the remaining two dozen buildings and provides visitors a glimpse into this fascinating part of our past.
