Interesting things I've read lately...

1. Last time there was a presidential election, Laura Bush won the Family Circle Magazine cookie bake-off and then her husband won the election. A few months ago, Cindy McCain won the Family Circle Magazine cookie I dare hope that the Family Circle Magazine cookie bake-off is an accurate prediction of what will happen on the first Tuesday of November, 2008?

2. Margaret Wise Brown, author of "Good night Moon" (You know the book...goodnight moon, goodnight cow jumping over the moon, goodnight bears, goodnight chairs....goodnight noises everywhere"?) Anyway, Margaret Wise Brown, at age 42, after having an emergency appendectomy, kicked her leg to show her speedy recovery and consequently died from dislodging a blood clot from the surgery. Freaky. She also willed all the royalties of her books to a friend's son who has squandered almost the entire amount, over $5 million, and been arrested "dozens of times".

That'll teach me to read magazines in the dentist's office.

Oh, and Elise fell out of her toddler bed last night. I'm not sure how or where she landed, since Ed got up with her, but she surely was screaming! She's fine, though. She slept in until 7:30 today!

Sorry - no photos again today...I'll try to work on that for next time. Enjoy your day!
