Today’s post is about all the awesome stuff that I came across on the wonderful land of the internet. I hope it helps you get through Friday!
First off remember that cook book, that I helped test recipes for? The Yellow Table: A Celebration of Everyday Gatherings: 110 Simple & Seasonal Recipes Well it’s up for pre-order again! Let’s help this awesome lady hit the best sellers list!!
I’m not usually one to get overly excited about TV premieres (unless we are talking a Gilmore Girls spinoff) but holy-wow am I excited for this.
It amazes me that people could think slaves; any slaves had it “pretty good”. Sure they may have had a roof to sleep under and enough food to make it through the day, but how would you like to live knowing that you and your children have no choices in life; knowing that your husband and children could be taken from you at any moment, at the most base assumptions about slavery. I’m pretty sure half of America now would have a complete cow if they didn’t get to choose what they wanted for dinner tonight. Anyway read this.
This was an interesting read on the last Confederate rebels. WHo knew?
And since we are on the topic. This lady has fight and passion and a long sorted past, and I couldn’t love this speech any more.
While I agree that a symbol that can be so offensive should be removed from government grounds, I also wonder what removing a TV show from the 70’s is really saying.
Moving on to more lighter topics….
Harper Lee’s sequel to To Kill a Mockingbird came out this week.Go Set a Watchman looks like it’s a must read.
Speaking of screens Facebook is getting serious.
Vampires exist.…. yup you read that right. To note it’s believed that the guy who wrote Dracula actually thought they did. Check out this post and skip down to the Complete Icelandic Edition Preface Section. You could also take a second to check out Dayna’s site her writing is amazing.
Get your parka out. There’s a mini ice age coming.
