Gotta love Christian Bale as Batman

Yep, I'm doing the Thursday Thirteen again! Here are some links that you might want to bookmark and come back to check out later.

1--Some news for you if you're looking forward to the next Batman film.

2--Today is National Men Make Dinner Day. How many of you guys often do the honors in the kitchen?

3--Today is also National Candy Day...and here are some tips for storing that left-over Halloween candy.

4--One of the loveliest blogs I've discovered lately is Grow Line--a blog written by a mother and daughter whose goal is to "revive the 'art' of being a lady while encouraging manners and grace. Check out this post about the essence of true beauty.

5--Loving "all things French" as I do, one of my favorite blogs has become Castles, Crowns and Cottages. Although it's not always French-themed, it's always a treat for the visiting a favorite home or beautiful little shop. And it IS written by a French teacher, Anita...who is one of the most gracious bloggers I've ever encountered! Enjoy.

6--On This Day in History, 1980: Ronald Reagan won the White House, defeating President Carter by a strong margin.

7--Want some writing tips from an author who was, well, pretty successful? How about Ernest Hemingway? (Via Thunderstruck)


8--Why do people continue to be fascinated with Cleopatra? Some interesting thoughts here.

9--OK, I'm all for good nutrition, but I'm NOT for the government mandating it. Happy meals won't be so happy in San Francisco.

10--Have you ever gotten annoyed enough with your husband's snoring to call the police on him? This woman did!


11--Just for fun, head over to my book blog,
Cindy's Book Club, and take my "What Kind of Book Person Are You?" quiz!

12--Watching your carbs? Check out DLife's 10 Ways to Carve Thanksgiving Carbs.

13--Want a way to keep track of the hottest pages on the internet? Here's a handy way.

I won't let my husband cook anymore. He puts Tabasco in Everything.

CountryDew said...

Interesting list. I wish I had known about the husband cooking day before I bought chicken to fix for dinner!

Living It, Loving It said...

I am down for number 2 although I am not sure what to expect because cereal for dinner doesn't do it for me. I was laughing so hard at the snoring husband one. See, I just got my own room. :-) It is my hideaway for when the snoring really gets to me and it's mine - no farting, no I am tired honey, I can hog the bed and not worrying about the sharing the covers, etc.

I will have to come back and revisit your page. Some interesting links I'd like to explore.
Happy T13!

National Candy Day? Cool. I've got to get some. :)

Lea said...

What an interesting list and I visited a few of the links. How convenient to have National Candy Day a few days after Halloween. :o)

Blessings to you!

CINDY DEAREST! Oh, I saw your lovely post yesterday at a quick glance from work, but unable to comment. THEN I SEE YOUR LOVELY COMMENT! THank you for commenting on my art work. I haven't drawn in 40 years, but just in the last year, thanks to blogging, have started again. Really, since I was about 12, I stopped. AND I would like to publish stories with my own drawings! OH, TELL YOUR DAUGHTER TO DEVOUR AND LISTEN TO REPEATEDLY FRENCHH MOVIES AND MUSIC. THAT IS HOW I LEARNED and I started at the age of 34. I am a licensed teacher with 2 types of licenses and with a B.A. in French!!!! So there is hope; but perseverance must be the key! BONNE JOURNÉE! Anita
