House stuff

This blog makes me smile. When I look at her photos, it almost makes me want to start caring about how my house looks again.


someone else’s words today

This having learned, thou hast attained the sum of wisdom; hope no higher, though all the stars thou knowest by name, and all th’ethereal powers, all secrets of the deep, all nature’s works, or works of God in heaven, air, earth or sea and all riches of this world enjoy’dst, and all thy rule, one empire. Only add deeds to thy knowledge answerable, add faith, add virtue, patience, temperance, add love, by name to some called charity, the soul of all the rest: then wilt thou not be loath to leave this paradise, but shall possess a paradise within thee, happier far. . .

                                                             ~ John Milton


Wish I’d thought of that!

I was reading a new and delightful blog and I came to a post that mentioned a cool place in NYC called Brooklyn Superhero Supply Company. When you walk in, it looks just like an ordinary store (if you can describe an amazingly over-the-top superhero-themed shop as ordinary).

But if you work your way to the back, there’s a secret passageway that takes you here.

I never cease to be amazed at the clever and innovative business ideas that people come up with.
