Here are a number of items that have caught my attention (and Carolyn's--she alerted me to several) over the past few weeks:
1.) 2007 is the 70th anniversary of SPAM (the luncheon meat)! To celebrate, you might want to watch the Monty Python skit, found on our Monty Python's Flying Circus collection [DVD MON] ("SPAM" is on DVD #8).
2.) Have you seen our belly dance video, Flex Appeal: A Belly Dance Workout [DVD 613.71 FLE]? As exercise, belly dance has many benefits, and, if you can do it without having fun, then there's something wrong with you! Those who get into belly dancing usually get into the accouterments, too. This site was recommended to me by a NH librarian (not all librarians fall into the stereotypical mold).
3.) Interesting graphic and article on wind power. We have these items on the subject: Ewing, Rex A. Power with Nature: Solar and Wind Energy Demystified [621.47 EWI]; Gipe, Paul. Wind Energy Basics: A Guide to Small and Micro Wind Systems [621.31 GIP]
4.) On April 24, I spoke about weddings and brides. I neglected to mention at the time, that there is a way to put old wedding outfits to good use--National Wedding Dress Day! The first one was held last year in the U.K. People (women AND men) wore dresses to work, or around town, and collected money for their favorite charities. This year, one librarian is trying to bring the celebration over here! I'd gladly participate in such a fun celebration, but, since I last wore a wedding dress, I've added a few pounds!
5.) I'm not sure if this fundraising effort would be suitable for the Nesmith Library!
