Friday Finds November 2018
I love old newsreels, home movies, and so– very happy to learn that so many are available for free via The Library of Congress.
I’m on the waitlist at the library for Michelle Obama’s memoir on audio CD, but this article on the history of first ladies’ memoirs makes me want to listen to a few others while I’m waiting.
The Japanese take splintered wooden baseball bats and make them into chopsticks! Talk about a great way to recycle!
I didn’t know green bean casserole was a thing until I was in college, so this was an interesting read about the woman who invented the dish.
Speaking of Thanksgiving food traditions, jellied canned cranberry sauce is Q’s requirement for Thanksgiving- I didn’t know a man invented it!
Art therapy works wonders, so it’s great to see that doctors are now prescribing visits to museums, concerts, and other art/cultural opportunities.
Do you have a Little Free Library in your neighborhood? There is one near our public library and I’ve left a few books there over the past few months, but never taken anything.
