Autumn, Borat, Ed Murrow,and Rotten Tomatoes

Hello, Happy autumn! Although the weather feels like July, the falling leaves on the ground and the shorter nights remind me that fall is actually here. I love fall--the clothes, the colors, the leaves, back to school. And hopefully another cool spell will kill the germs that are migrating in the air. I found this cool photo in my archives of a preying mantis perched on yellow flowers. We called him Zorak. Steve ordered two movies from the library: Borat and good night, and good luck. Both movies are very different. The one aspect that is similar is the fact that both movies are politically incorrect. Borat is the story of a man from another part of the world who documents the customs of America. It's wrong in so many ways, but funny at the same time. You have to have an open mind (and a sick sense of humor) to enjoy Borat. good night, and good luck is the story about Edward Murrow and CBS in the time of McCarthyism (1950's). The music is jazz and I would like to purchase the s…

Happy Friday!

I almost entitled this blog "Happy Thursday." I peeked at the clock and it is after midnight!
Therefore, Happy Friday!

My personal time flies by, especially when I am writing. That must mean it is a good thing. :)

I finished a book review for Public Libraries: Blogging and RSS: A Librarian's Guide by Michael P. Sauers. It's a good book. The RSS (Really Simple Syndication) is still a little foggy for me, but I enjoyed the blogging chapters. And the fact that Michael Stephens is quoted in the book was really cool. He is the god of the cyber world. I'm so lucky to have learned from his training.

I'm starting to prepare for brown belt in taekwondo. I am sore from sparring, but I am building my confidence to test later this fall.

More Later!

Love, Lolo

Happy Sunday Night

Hello! Hope you are well. I am doing fine. Just busy like everyone else. Let's see...what have I been up to these days? Well, I read the following books: A Thousand Splendid Suns by Khaled Hosseini This work of historical fiction takes place in Afghanistan. It is about the lives of two women. A page-turner for sure. Water for Elephants by Sara Gruen This is a story from the perspective of a ninety-three- year-old man who worked for the circus during the Depression in the 1930's. There are wonderful photographs included from archives from the Ringling Brothers. I attended a taekwondo tournament on Saturday. It was cool. We also attended a party Saturday night. It was great to see friends again. Time just travels too fast for my taste. Have a great weekend! Love, Lolo

Greenie's Revolt Revisited (GRR)

Hi, This is another story to add to my book... I hope you like it. I have many of my stories in a file and ready to get really down to the nitty gritty writing bizness. (Yes, I know I misspelled bizness. Yup. I just did it again.) Love, Lolo Greenie's Revolt Revisited (GRR) This is the second time Greenie is being literally a pain in the rear. I just returned from a beautiful but really sad funeral service, and waited to drive to the nearest gas station to fill up before I could return home and collapse (mind you, I was attacked by the sinus gremlins. This was a wicked infection.) I prepay at my favorite gas station and press the button to release the gas gage. It's very loose. Nope. I tried again. Nope. I even pull on it and the truck lid opens. But there is no way in hell that this gas gage was going to budge. I even tried to pry it open with my key. Great, why don't I break my key and really get myself stuck? Even the kindly station attendant looks at it. He tries …
