visited Greenfield Village

Today we took a trip to Greenfield Village. We listened to Laura Ingles discuss her life. We also saw a show with the music of Gershwin, listened to the narative information on the steam engine ride and had a carosel ride on a almost 100 year old carosel.

Shared pictures of my Pumpkin

She's a little Shorkie from Homeward Bound rescue group.  She turned two last week and is a wonderful, sweet companion.

I saw Men in Black III in 3D

I saw Men inBlack III in 3D with my husbad and his brother.  None of us raelly cared for it.  We all agreed that the first Men in Black was the best.  I was disappointed that Tommy Lee Jones didn't have a larger part in the third movie.

Watched an interesting video about summer

The video was good and a little bit quirky. It told me about how Connect Your Summer is really cool.

Credit Card Use

As much as I appreciate the library, one thing constantly seems to be my undoing. Whenever I need to use the printer/scanner, I need cash to reload my card. I use plastic everywhere, at all times, and while it may be smart to carry around a few singles, I can never manage to do it. Are there any credit card capable machines (either for the printer or the card loading service) on the market? And if so, would the library consider investing in them? Obviously long term thinking here but I would much appreciate you guys considering it. Thanks, Chris

Watched the First Season of Doctor Who

After being surrounded by Doctor Who references for years, I'm finally clued in. The first episode in this season didn't hook me, but a friend recommended watching "Blink" and "Silence in the Library" from Seasons Three and Four. Those sucked me in and then I went back to the first season and thoroughly enjoyed it.

Ahoy There "Chips"

This summer I adopted a squirrel who lives in the Preserve at Fellows Creek, and I recently conducted a test to determine whether he prefers chocolate chip cookies to apple cores.  His new nickname, "Chips" and the attached picture indicate the answer to that perennial question.
