A Little Bit of This, A Little Bit of That--December Edition
A number of things to briefly cover today:
A contest to win a basket of books for your little ones or to donate to some charity during this season of giving, is nearly over at A Readable Feast, a blog that often features children's books and reviews (and recipes, too). Hurry--today's the last day! A library user asked if we had a collection of the promotional materials of the candidates for the upcoming presidential primary. The answer is no, but if you want to learn more about the candidates for president, there are many places to look online. One of the most comprehensive is Vote-Smart. If you've driven around town and seen the signs "Mark Klein for President," and wondered who in the world is Mark Klein?, this site will answer that question! Yesterday, All Things Considered had a segment on politicians in Milford, NH. Give a listen to find out how your fellow New Hampshirites may be voting. I found an impressive new online magazine for lovers of art, Art Knowledge News. It describes itself as "keeping you in touch with the 'world of art.'" You can subscribe for free. A little while back I wrote about Christmas carols and the health benefits of singing. This is the week that has been designated as "Sing for Your Heart Week." Actually, it's a fundraiser, and in the U.K. no less, but any excuse to sing is welcomed as far as I'm concerned! Right now, due to the weather, my favorite seasonal songs are "I've Got My Love to Keep Me Warm" sung by Dean Martin, and "Baby It's Cold Outside," sung delightfully by Zooey Deschanel. Zooey can be found on the Elf soundtrack album [CD SOUNDTRACK ELF] or in the film [DVD ELF].
