My adorable little grandson Payton on Halloween
Thirteen interesting bits of information and/or links to share with you! Here we go...
1. Here's a book trailer I voiced for Virginia Smith's upcoming book, Age Before Beauty:
If you're an author who needs a voice for your next book trailer, let me know!
2. Have you ever considered The Most Under-rated Muppets? (I personally liked Roosevelt Franklin.) Hat tip to USA Today Pop Candy.
3. I know sometimes we feel like the economy is bleeding us dry...but apparently it's forcing some people to give--or actually sell-- their life blood. Plasma donations are way up.
4. Have you ever suffered from airport stress? Some airport workers are learning how to deal with it.
5. I got ahold of a copy of Kristin Chenoweth's Christmas CD, and I've already snuck a few listens...violating my no-Christmas-music-before-Thanksgiving rule. I've gotta tell you, I love it! See/hear a sample here.
6. Archaeologists believe they've found the tomb of the biblical King Herod.
7. Say it isn't so! Revered *British actor Christopher Plummer, probably best known for playing the father in The Sound of Music, says the movie is..."yucky"!!! Well...I have to admit that "Something Good" song that he sang was kind of sappy. At least he admits Julie Andrews was awesome.
8. Unless you live in a cave, you will hear, or you have heard, about "Twilight." USA Today has an article.
9. This is heartwarming: our troops will get Christmas trees.
10. Want another sneak peek of Christmas music? Relient K's Sleigh Ride is a treat; lead singer Matt Thiessen's voice has never sounded sweeter.
11. Give Books for Christmas! Author BJ Hoff inspired my recent posts on that subject; now she's doing a two-parter on the subject.
12. Linda at 2nd Cup of Coffee answers a fun Christmas Q and A, which I might just do tomorrow.
13. The late, legendary Bob Hope is getting a stamp.
*Nicholas of A Gentleman's Domain tells me Christopher Plummer is not British, but Canadian! Who knew?
