Mr giant leaf-tailed gecko esq. of madagascar

what about him? isn't he good. kind of makes a great start to the day.

(he only lives in Madagascar and is endangered.)

(In other news: it's true. You were totally misled. Tuesday wasn't Grandparents day at all and just a plain, old regular one. By the time I realized my error I couldn't very well send out a "Happy Not Grandparents Day" everyone. Besides, when you think about it, shouldn't every day be Grandparents day? And, after all, the book is IDEAL for mothers day... stop her... somebody... please)

grandmas and grandpas

Happy Grandparents Day!

Did you know there was one? Did you know it was today?

And what better way to celebrate it than to read (published on this very day) the authoritative text on the subject: The Ultimate Guide To Grandmas and Grandpas: an instruction manual for children on the nurture and care of grandparents, filled with expert advice, helpful pointers and useful tips.

What an invaluable resource to us all.

Do you need this book? Does someone near to you need it? Of course. But don't wait! Rush right this instant to the stores and get your copy today before it sells out.

Or else just, click here.

Young @ Heart

This is a film, made for British TV, that deserves to be a sleeper.

It's up-lifting, funny, heart-breaking, tender and almost unbearably poignant. And it's in there with my all time favorite movies. (Plus there's a wonderful British woman in it. As a friend said, "Those Brits have such flair." Who am I to argue with such a statement?) So go and see it. And help make it a sleeper.
