A blast from the past, literally, you can view the 1946 movie Atom Bomb [Joe Bonica's Movie of the Month] at the Open Video Project. It's an unbelievable collection of movies, mainly ephemera, some dating back as far as 100 years!

We were supposed to get 2 inches of snow followed by rain this afternoon. So far, we have about 8 inches of snow and, as far as I can tell, I don't think rain is in the picture.

School is closed for the holiday tomorrow so we haven't even seen them shoveling out the school next door yet. The dog loves it, though.

I got the dreambook from White Flower Farm a week or so ago. It's been soothing my soul, looking through it and planning what to add to the garden this year -- maybe heathers? The Brigadoon Collection is especially enticing ...
