Well, summer is officially here – and the weather is finally cooperating. The boys have been in VBS every morning all week. I like the quiet house in the mornings, but the running around gets a bit old after awhile. I’m looking forward to next week being more low-key.

I hope you’re all enjoying your summer vacations! Here are the links I saved to share with you:

~ Buffy vs. Edward – I’ve never watched Buffy, but I still found this video funny.

~ Popular and Unique Soft Drinks From Around the World – I can’t even imagine drinking some of these.

~ Saying More Than We Can Say: Why the Arts Matter Even During a Recession.

~ Deadline: Post-It Stop Motion Film – Some people are so creative – and have a lot of time on their hands!

~ Academy Expands Best Picture Nominees to 10 – Maybe this way movies that people have actually seen will be nominated!

At Books and Movies lately:

~ Favorite children’s novels, part one
~ Me and My Books Meme
~ Found in the pages of Bookmarks Magazine July/August Issue
~ Book review: The Wet Nurse’s Tale by Erica Eisdorfer
~ Favorite contemporary fiction, part three
