One of These is Not Like the Others

Last time I was at Disney World, I walked into the Hall of Presidents at Disney’s Magic Kingdom, this was before it was closed for the big change over, and after the show I walked out with tears in my eyes. This majestic and interesting tribute to Liberty’s Leaders is currently¬†being polluted by the additionContinue reading “One of These is Not Like the Others”

Martin Luther King Jr. Day

When I opened Google this morning I saw that today’s logo was dedicated to Martin Luther King, Jr., as well it should be! When I clicked on the logo, I was taken to Google’s search page where all manner of MLK Jr. information lies. The first thing that comes up is NationalService.gov, a site thatContinue reading “Martin Luther King Jr. Day”

30 Days of Nerdy Hair – Day 5

Day 5: Lagertha from Vikings I have yet to delve into the wonderful world of the History Channel’s, Vikings. But it is a show that has been recommended to me over and over again (I promise I’ll watch it!!!) It’s no secret that I’m an easy sell when it comes to a new show. ItContinue reading “30 Days of Nerdy Hair – Day 5”

30 Days of Nerdy Hair

Day 4: Rosie the Riveter Granted, today’s hair is on the easier side, but that doesn’t mean it isn’t a classic! Rosie the Riveter has become a classic role model for feminists the world over. And in our culture right now, the word feminist is something of a hot topic! Perhaps it’s always been so.Continue reading “30 Days of Nerdy Hair”

When a Man Marches

All week I have been thinking about the impact of Martin Luther King Jr. on the very fabric of our existence in today’s world. Monday saw the birthday of this honorable man and I couldn’t help but wonder what our lives and even more, our world, would look like without his work. And in thatContinue reading “When a Man Marches”

25 days of (nerdy) Christmas!

“Dork the halls with boughs of holly.” Days 8 & 9: Vintage Decorations There’s nothing like pulling out that old box of Christmas decorations and discovering lost treasures. I don’t mind telling you that my box of Christmas things has been in that same box for the whole 7 years I’ve lived here. Not onceContinue reading “25 days of (nerdy) Christmas!”

25 days of (nerdy) Christmas!

“Geekin’ around the Christmas tree!” Day 6: Book Christmas Tree Who says you have to have a conventional Christmas tree? This year try something off the beaten path and I’m not talking a bright pink plastic abomination. Think outside of the box. Got a lot of books (perhaps a slightly unnaturally large collection?) stack themContinue reading “25 days of (nerdy) Christmas!”

Imma nerd for…

Bobby Kennedy I have no grand delusions about the Kennedy’s. Camelot was a myth. There was scheming and dirty deals made. But there is something that enchants me about RFK. (Could be that Kennedy hair.) He was by no means perfect. Men who die young have all the priviledge of being immortalized for deeds notContinue reading “Imma nerd for…”
