Wonder Woman


Wonder Woman celebrated her 75th Anniversary last year. I can’t wait to see the movie this summer. I bought the commemorative stamps that came out last year.

Monkees, Monkees, Monkees


This week was the 50th Anniversary of the airing of the first episode of the Monkees. Back when they aired repeats in 1976 I started watching them and fell in love with Davy Jones. I loved his British accent and the fact that he was short. When they got back together in 1986 I was able to see them live. My poor father went with me to see them Live four times. I also saw Davy Live by myself once. They played a show in Mesa last Thursday but I couldn’t go because I was working. Plus Davy wasn’t there since he passed back in 2012 and my father passed in 2009 so it would have been hard for me. They put out a new album this year. It is called Good Times and it is good. One of the admins for the Zilch Monkees podcast also runs the Better Library Leaders Podcast. She came up with a cool article about Six Timeless Leadership Lessons I Learned from the Monkees. Now to go watch the Monkees Marathon on AntennaTV.

There was a question on Twitter. Who was the first celebrity death to really punch you in the gut? My answer, Davy Jones. On the day he died, I was teaching my Internet Basics class at work. One of the sites I have them go to in class in the Arizona Republic’s website. His death was one of the home page stories. I had to get through class and the rest of work before I could cry. I saw him on a PBS special the next month and cried my eyes out.

Music


This happened last year and I can’t believe I didn’t post about it then. In addition to loving libraries I love music. Dave Menzo learned that the Ann Arbor Public Library loaned out musical instruments and created a cds worth of music. Then he put it up on Kickstarter. I contributed and got a cd. Cool. You can borrow all kinds of things from libraries. More info in this article. Also, you can buy the cd on CD Baby.

Update


Wow! I didn’t realize that it’s been a year since my last post.
I spent most of the day yesterday moving my website to WordPress. I was using it for blogging only but now I am using it for my whole site. It took me awhile to do but I like the way it looks. I used Google a lot to answer the questions I had on how to do things. Things have changed a lot since I first learned HTML in 1997. I did things I’ve never done and I learned a lot. I also now have a mobile version of my site.

Shelfari is no more but I didn’t know that. So I had to try to recreate my shelves in LibraryThing.

Rainmeter


I got rid of my desktop gadgets finally and installed Rainmeter. It’s been fun. I now have Windows 10 and like it.

Here’s what I used.
The background picture is from Microsoft.
The resources are the Simplicity Redefined-White theme.
Most of the sidebar is the Enigma theme and 8gadgetpack.
The music is the gnometer theme.
Then I have Fences and ObjectDock installed for the Computers and Docks.
I also have Launchy, Start10, and ModernMix installed on my computer for searching and customizing my computer.
I also have Classic Shell installed to get rid of the taskbar.
Some of the icons are from the Icon Archive Website.
The cursor is from an old hanson.net membership cd.

Baking


Cookie Monster is my favorite character on Sesame Street

I love to cook and bake. I ran out of time and desire to make cookies last Christmas but I usually make, snickerdoodles, M&M cookies, Elevator Lady spice cookies, gingerbread, and many more. I did just make some Nestley Toll House cookies and some muffins. They also opened a Panera nearby and I tried two things from there.

Lifehacker put out a call for the five best beginner cookbooks . I own The Joy of Cooking, The Better Homes and Gardens New Cookbook, and I just bought How to Cook Everything. I also own the I Hate to Cook Cookbook by Peg Bracken. I also watch the Cooking Channel and Food Network and subscribe to their Magazines, Paula Deen’s, and Rachael Ray’s as well.

Books


In my post I made about the movies I want to see I said I didn’t have any books I was looking forward to reading. But since then I found out that Bill Klein and Jen Arnold of the Little Couple are coming out with a book on the Tuesday after Memorial Day called Life is Short. I love their show and I can’t wait to read the book. The spring season of their show starts that day as well. I can’t wait for that either. Mark Trombino came out with a book by the same name a couple of years ago and it was good too.

Rita Mae Brown has a new Mrs. Murphy Mystery called Tail Gait and Clive Cussler has Piranha coming out the same day. Danielle Steel has Country coming out next month.

Raspberry Pi


3/14/15 was Raspberry Pi day. I didn’t get a chance to do what I wanted to do to mine then but I have now. I updated rasplex and raspian. I wanted to install Chromium and Kodi on to my device but I wound up not having enough space. So I had to transfer my image to a new SD card and then get them up and running. I did run in to a snag while doing that but was able to Google the answer after awhile. I want to start using it for coding and maybe an arduino project or two if I can find one I want to do.

Movies


I’m a bad librarian. I’m not looking forward to any books coming out soon. I’ll get the latest Danielle Steel, Clive Cussler, and Rita Mae Brown when they come out in March and May as I usually do.
But I am really looking forward to two movies that are coming out this year.


The Peanuts Movie.


Avengers 2 Age of Voltron.

I looked forward to the Garfield movies and the first Avengers movie when they came out and liked them. I hope I like these two as well.

Party Time Excellent


Sunday was SNL’s 40 Anniversary. I loved every moment of it including my favorite Wayne’s World.
