A smile is a curve that sets everything straight. Phyllis Diller
July 17, 1917: Comedian Phyllis Diller's iconic onstage persona of a nutty housewife with a long cigarette holder took her everywhere from USO tours in Vietnam to Broadway. She was born 96 years ago today.
When I first set up this blog, it was part of a training that my library system required us to do with Web 2.0 training, since then I have pretty much dedicated this to sharing movies and books that I have read, enjoyed. I have been doing preschool storytimes since 1982, at my library, so have plenty of children's titles to share. Besides reading, I enjoy gardening, watching Mt Baker, music, cooking(especially Middle Eastern,Indian,Italian and Mexican dishes), birdwatching, and cats.
My love of Middle Eastern foods, and now it seems movies, is due to the fact that as child I lived in North Africa on the Sahara Desert - father was stationed at Wheelus AFB from 1959-62.
