housekeeping



Sometimes you just have to clean house, get rid of the clutter, stuff that has been piling up, well virtually anyway.

Yesterday I cleaned out and organized all my internet favorites, stuff I had saved, websites I wanted to go back to, stories and articles and blogs I wanted to read. Here are some things I found hidden in my 'to be read' pile.

If kids designed the food pyramid (pictured above), found here. I think pizza should be at the top, what about you?




Did you know that Kermit the Frog has decided it is actually pretty easy to be green? Read more here.




Change the world and make some major dough doing it! Enter Google's Project 10 to the 100th.






Keep up with all the books you own or have read at Library Thing. What's on your bookshelf?







The New York Times says that Twitter is "one of the fastest-growing phenomena on the Internet." As of July 2008, over two million Twitter accounts were registered. Just answer the question, What are you doing?


And on my to do list, a meme sent to me by fellow blogger. Joann is a breast cancer survivor, and since October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month, we are thinking of all of you and wishing you well. Go over and visit her at her blog: Higher Ground (Welcome to the latest news of the boobs).

So here is what she sent me to do:

* Grab the nearest book.
* Open the book to page 56.
* Find the fifth sentence.
* Post the text of the next two to five sentences in your blog along with these instructions.
* Don’t dig for your favorite book, the cool book, or the intellectual one: pick the CLOSEST.
* Tag five other people to do the same

Since I work here at home, the closest book is The AAMT Book of Style

cannot, can't

Use cannot instead of can not.

Use cannot instead of shortened form can't except in direct quotations.


Well, that was pretty boring! Hopefully some others will have more interesting books nearby, like Bonnie, Judith, San, Byron, and Janet.

My virtual housekeeping is done, now on to some real housekeeping? Well, maybe another day.

Let's see ... fifth sentence down ... "I think pizza should be at the top, what about you?" ... Yes, I do.

Wait! That's the fifth sentence down in the closest BLOG. It's supposed to be the closest BOOK.

Thanks, Susan. Gotta go write a post about ... about ... The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society, a novel by Mary Ann Shaffer and Annie Barrows.
