My blog, which I've been reading in Feedly for months now, no longer appears. It does show up in other readers, though! Thoughts? http://blogs.scientificamerican.com/extinction-countdown/

Aussie toy menders specialize in creepy doll repair

This year, the Original Doll Hospital is celebrating 100 years of mending all types of dolls, teddy bears, rocking horses, umbrellas, prams and various other items. First established in 1913 by Harold Chapman, the quirky repair shop is now run by Geoff Chapman, the third generation of Chapmans to run the business. http://mnatu.re/XiSP5f

What a great team. We're so happy to have found them.

Staying in a casino wasn't our first intention, but we loved the night we spent here. The room was clean, large and comfortable. Guests get a few free bucks to play the slots, so that was fun, too. The dinner downstairs was delicious. There was no breakfast, or anything really in walking distance, but we found coffee in a nearby gas station. The one downside was their pet area -- just a gravel-filled alley behind the hotel. Deadwood itself is gorgeous and we look forward to returning.

If you're looking for a hotel in the middle of nowhere with cramped, poorly designed rooms, you've come to the right place.

What a disappointment. AAA gives this hotel three diamonds; we thought it barely deserved two. The tree-lined mountain setting can't be beat, but the hotel itself is run-down and our room stank. On the plus side, the attached diner provided a great, affordable meal of comfort food.

This hotel sits by itself, practically in the middle of nowhere, but it's on nicely maintained grounds and the rooms are clean and well-designed. The attached pub has a limited menu, but what we tried sure tasted good after a long day on the road. It's a busy hotel with lots of noise, but we slept well and enjoyed our stay.

What a pleasant surprise. AAA only ranked this a two-diamond hotel, but we really enjoyed our stay here. It's a bit older (and doesn't look like much from the outside), but the interior is well-maintained and sparklingly clean. The staff (I'm pretty sure it was the owner behind the desk) was friendly and extremely helpful. The one downside was that the pet area wasn't as well-maintained. A great stay at a budget price.

What a delightful hotel. It may seem like it's off the beaten path, but this is worth seeking out if you're in the area. The interior is beautiful, the rooms are nice, and the staff are as friendly as can be. The restaurant is quite expensive, but there are numerous other options within walking distance. We enjoyed our stay here.
