Monday Stuff On the Way to Other Stuff: Wandering

Whoa...I don't have anything to rush off and do in the next few days! The appraisers conference is done, but Maine Quilts doesn't start until Friday morning. And it's too far to drive back to Michigan, then return again. (Well, there is...but I'd spend all that time driving there and back, with just a little between.) 
    So -- I took a friend to the Norfolk airport, then started heading north. Stopped at an antiques mall, a thrift shop, and a seafood buffet. (Went by Fort Nonsense, as well -- a Revolutionary War fortified hill that never got used.) Then got a hotel room and took a long nap. All this resting could be addictive! 
    Meanwhile:

Are aliens on the moon? A quick review of the latest ScyFy special, including purported photos of 'fortresses,' 'flying saucers' and 'machine tracks.' The interviews with former astronauts, though, are the real kicker -- it sounds very much like they're saying that the astronauts Saw Things they weren't allowed to talk about. (The review credits the astronauts saying they really didn't say that -- their statements were just edited convincingly.) 

10 TV moments that were almost fatal. (And you probably haven't heard about them -- these were mostly hushed up.)

And, to finish up, Allison's Curated and Collected Apartment, courtesy of Apartment Therapy. Cool, calm and collected...and all done in a rental. Wow. Take a close-up look at this great living room:


I really like the 'painting' above her bed, too. (It's actually a blown-up photo of kelp in the ocean.)

Monday Stuff On the Way to Other Stuff: Thanksgiving and Poldark

      We just finished watching Poldark, Season 3.  A lot of my friends love the Outlander series, in film and book. I tried both -- a lit...
