Friday Pix: Recommended Reading For The Weekend

Every Friday I point you to some recommended reading around the blogosphere:

1. I was really moved by this beautiful account of a mother’s death by Ann Hulbert in The American Scholar.

2. This is fun:  the digital story of Nativity.

3. More Christmas fun: Ros Asquith gives us a tour of her Christmas cartoons for the Education page at the Guardian. Especially funny if you’re familiar with the British education system.

4. I won’t be in London for Christmas this year, so I really appreciated this walking tour of Christmas Lights in London over at ‘Cross the Pond.

5. Finally, if you are *still* hard pressed to find a Christmas gift for that special someone – and Tim Minchin didn’t do it for you – may I recommend my friend Laurie Gould’s CD – Domestic Bliss – over at Gould Tunes. When you visit, you can listen to her very latest tune, “Home For The Holidays.”

Have a great weekend!

Friday Pix: Recommended Reading For The Weekend

Every Friday I point you to some recommended reading around the blogosphere:

1. I’m always impressed when people follow their dreams in adulthood. In that spirit, have a look at my friend Laurie Gould’s new website – Gould Tunes – which showcases the album she and some friends will be releasing later on this autumn: Songs of Domestic Bliss. Working moms should definitely have a sneak preview of “I Should.”

2. Here’s a novel idea. Get divorced and share custody of not only the kids…but a blog! That’s what’s happening over at When The Flames Go Up. Check it out!

3. I have no idea why it’s taken me so long to follow what’s going on over at Gawker, but boy am I glad that I did. Love this blog network’s irreverent, snarky tone. Here’s a great spoof of Sarah Palin’s recent diatribe against a “cackle of Rads.”

4. A friend of mine linked to Beloit College’s Mindset List For The Class of 2014, where a humanities professor on campus walks you through the mindset of the current graduates to let you know how young they are (or how old you are.) My favorite? “John McEnroe has never played professional tennis.”

5. I always enjoy Howard Baldwin’s rants over on Middle Age Cranky. Here he is on Boomer Living’s Coffee House Blog talking about “Seven More Things That Really Frost Me About Middle Age.” (Yeah, I’m also bummed about the game show thing.)

6. In case you’ve ever wondered where I live, here’s a glorious website that provides A Virtual Tour of Hampstead Village, replete with vintage pictures. (Hat Tip: ‘Cross The Pond.)

7. Finally, for those who are interested, here’s my defense of the EMILY’s list Mama Grizzly ad that’s been the subject of much discussion back home in America this week.
