misc Monday…NEW stuff i gotta share

summertime

Happy Monday!  Here’s my weird photo of the week.  Yes, I know it’s November, but this photo would be lost and forgotten about if I tried to keep it til next summer to post it.  So, there ya go. Random.Weirdness.Miscellaneous Monday!

Let’s see, here’s some more randomness:

I was doing some family history research lately and read about a Smock Wedding. (HERE’s another link that talks about it in The Encyclopedia of Superstitions). I learned something NEW!

What I’ve been listening to on my commutes:

Excellent writing!  BUT, I can’t believe I’m listening to this while in the midst of an election! Wowza, my timing couldn’t have been worse, because I’ve gotten enough of politics without choosing to read about it too!  Here is the snippet from Amazon: “Winner of the Pulitzer Prize, this classic book is generally regarded as the finest novel ever written on american politics. It describes the career of Willie Stark, a back-country lawyer whose idealism is overcome by his lust for power.”

I’d recommend it, just for the very good writing – but plan carefully (don’t read it in October/November! :o)

And lastly, since my backyard is covered in autumn leaves that need to be raked, I’ll share the superstitions I learned about autumn leaves:

I’m going out right now and try to catch a leaf to ward off any winter colds! Have a great day! Do or learn something NEW!
