BOOOO! I found a few really nice vintage Halloween postcards while surfing the internet last week. The last one is my favorite. Which one do you like best?

Choose your candidate. Some Halloween fun for the office, school, or home.
(If you don't want to wear your mask you can glue or tape a paint stirring stick on the back and just hold it up to your face.)

This is an Equal Opportunity Download for OBAMA or McCAIN

Hip Hop Video by MC Yogi | Obama '08 - Vote for Hope | it's awesome . . .

Obama '08 - Vote For Hope from MC Yogi on Vimeo.

I have never even heard of MC Yogi and I don't normally like rap music. In fact, I really dislike it. I do however like this wonderful video. It gave me chills. Watch it ~ you will be glad you did.

I don't even know how I found it...I was searching on Google for something entirely different. These things just FIND ME and I am so glad this one did. ENJOY!

Did you recognize Obama's inspiring speech from the 2004 Democratic National Convention? Vote For Hope was written to encourage and inspire the hip hop generation—and everyone—to get involved, and contribute their time, energy, creativity, and other resources to be the change they want to see in the world. "Vote for Hope" was written by M.C. Yogi and produced by Robin Livingston. The "Vote for Hope" video was created at Ursa Minor Arts and Media in San Rafael, CA with chief animator James Curtis, using designs and direction from M.C. Yogi. Video funded and supported by grassroots donations.

MC Yogi rocks! Please consider putting this video on your blog. No need to link to me...just help get the message out!

If it walks like a duck . . .

I have no idea what this photo is all about. There is a black thing almost floating in mid-air on desktop. Microphone, blackberry, big black crayon; what did McCain drop? Interesting weird body language.

Some of my antiquarian books . . .

Some of my FINE BINDINGS. I love everything about books...the way they look, the way they feel, and the way they smell. I have been an avid collector of Antiquarian Books for ages. I guess there are more books in the world than almost anything else ~ except plastic bags! I am passionate about the environment; I was "green" before it was trendy and way before climate change showed its ugly face. I recycle everything I can and generate only one small bag of real garbage in a week's time. I believe all antique collectors and dealers practice recycling in a very real way. Try it, you'll like it!

I needed this photo for my ebay site and this was the only way I could add text and save it for uploading when I am selling books.

Ron Howard & Andy Griffith endorse Obama with a Video . . .

Ron Howard, Andy Griffith, and Henry Winkler step back in time to show why Obama is such a great candidate. The video is very good and short too (less than 4 minutes). Please watch; it's very enjoyable.

I can't even watch CNBC today. When is the economy going to stabilize? This is just too stressful for words.

Necessary item for dog walks . . .

This cracked me up! Such a clever graphic for a doggie doo bag. Luckily I don't have this problem since Webster is the most fastidious dog on the planet. He always goes in the woods way away from the yard. He walks himself too. I am truly blessed!

Baby It's Cold INSIDE . . .

Webster is worried again. He is remembering the summer and the fact that I did not turn on the central air one single time. He is afraid I am going do the same thing with the furnace this winter. How many blankets can you pile on a dog? Brrrrr!

Do you go by the calendar or the thermometer? I try to hold off until November. As I write this I am wearing flannel lined jeans, wool turtle neck, heavy Norwegian cardigan, thick wool socks, and I am seriously considering searching for my fingerless gloves. I just got back from a walk and it is warmer outside. I can't see my breath so I think I am fine. Can't wait until bedtime comes and I can jump under my big fat down comforter.
