Thanks for alerting us to the mistake, +Karen Price! We've corrected the text to "fewer".

In all the Leonard Nimoy remembrances I've seen posted, no one has mentioned Never Forget, which is one of the most important non-Star Trek things I remember him for.

"Mr. Mermelstein (Leonard Nimoy) and Mrs. Mermelstein (Blythe Danner) a true-life California couple, thrown into the spotlight of judicial history in the 1980s. He is a Hungarian-born Jew, sole survivor of his family's extermination at Auschwitz, and she is a Southern Baptist from Tennessee. Their four children are good kids, typical Americans, with just enough orneriness to irritate each other, but enough love and class to pull together when it counts. When challenged by a hate group to prove that Jews were actually gassed at Auschwitz, Mel Mermelstein rises to the occasion with the support of his wife and children, in spite of the dangers to himself, his business, and his family. William John Cox (Dabney Coleman) provides legal help (pro bono) as a lawyer, originally a Roman Catholic from Texas."

IIRC, Nimoy was very eager to be a part of this project because of his own family's experience during the Holocaust.

Optical illusions are fun. 
The internet is losing its collective shit over the color of this dress. It is, as most internet rows, a solved problem. Some people see a blue and black dress, others see a white and gold dress. T...

"It's 1953 and the United States is under siege.You, your family, your neighbors, and your friends have to fight the shambling dead as they trample your begonias and drag ichor all over your new front porch. They're clawing at the door, and it's not just because they want your apple pie recipe."

Man... I hate when that happens!

Y'all... check out this amazing tabletop RPG set in alt-history 1950s, complete with communists and zombies!

O.o

"Along with other English customs, settlers arriving in the British American colonies during the late 17C & early 18C century carried with them the practice of wife selling, & the belief in its legitimacy as a way of ending a marriage. 

"In 1645 'The P'ticular Court' of Hartford, Connecticut, reported the case of Baggett Egleston, who was fined 20 shillings for 'bequething his wyfe to a young man.' The Boston Evening-Post reported on 15 March 1736 an argument between two men '& a certain woman, each one claiming her as his Wife, but so it was that one of them had actually disposed of his Right in her to the other for Fifteen Shillings.' The purchaser had, apparently, refused to pay in full, & had attempted to return 'his' wife. He was given the outstanding sum by two generous bystanders, & paid the husband—who promptly 'gave the Woman a modest Salute wishing her well, & his Brother Sterling much Joy of his Bargain.'"

"Remember the ladies" indeed.

I am continually amazed at what people are able to come up with. 

I'm also a little sad I don't have all the money in the world to buy every thing I see! In the meantime, I'll keep sharing the coolest stuff on my blog.
 
I've found some really great crafty items to kick off our Women's History Month celebrations!

If someone doesn't buy me that Well Behaved Women pendant, I'm going to have to get it myself. Which, of course, is perfectly fine with me!

A really good read.

I have to wonder how many times Southerners in the US have had to deal with this? 
University lecturer Dr Katie Edwards has faced prejudice for her regional Mexborough accent - so much so, that she's conducted research into it. Here, she explains why the problem is so much worse in academic circles

+Jen Doyle: we moved from the south (Louisiana and NE Texas) to Michigan when I was 12. It took exactly 2 weeks of teasing for me to drop my accent.

I miss it. It only comes back when I'm talking with my family, who are now back in Louisiana. 
 
So, I'm doing a new thing.

Story
Introduction
Um... yeah... its me. I play games, and work in the garden, grow vegetables, dream up delicious recipes, go outside whenever possible, read lots, watch even more TV, and spend many, many (many) hours online. And sometimes, when the stars align, I even blog about these things.

I am a vocal advocate for the power of social media to build vibrant and vital communities, and spend much of my day online for my own projects and favored non-profits, as well as for paying clients. 

My degree is in Environmental Studies, with an emphasis on Outdoor Education and History. My goal is to find a way to combine my many diverse interests into one really awesome life. So far, so good.

Around the web, I am known as "itchbay" and the head princess of the Self-Rescuing Princess Society.
