Lots of interesting Saturday Serendipity links today. Hope you’re having a fabulous September Saturday!
Bits and Bobs
Life for the Amish is changing fast. We see it even here in Southern Illinois.
Harry Dean Stanton made every film he was in that much better. RIP, awesome Harry.
Everyone heard about that sneezing panda video this week. I think this one is just as cute! (The one from Rachel Maddow runs just after this one.)
I gather foie gras is delicious, but the process is unusually cruel. I’d as soon see it stop everywhere, and the ban in California is being upheld.
Justine Leconte produces very practical and very smart fashion videos two times a week. I love her lessons because they’re basic and clear and cover everything from makeup to what eyewear will suit you to capsule wardrobes and the latest fashion shows. Plus, she has a thoroughly charming accent.
Books and Film
Speaking of plot generators–this one is do-it-yourself. And you don’t need to be a writer to have fun with it! (You also don’t need to register or give them your email addy)
My bestie has a brand new book out! Lie To Me by J.T.Ellison is a brilliant domestic thriller about a pair of writers who have some startling secrets.
Close to Home
My most popular blogpost this week was Bloom Where You’re Planted: Home is Never Perfect and That’s Okay.
Wait! I also had a book come out this week: the paperback version of The Abandoned Heart, the book whose events started all the hauntings at Bliss House. (Amazon has the hardcover of The Abandoned Heart for less than the paperback. Fascinating!)
