A year’s worth of photos, screen grabs, imported pictures and iPhone imagery. Some photos of friends, events, places and happenings in and around Minneapolis…
Winter 2013-2014 pictures, (1 of 2), also located on Flickr, Google +, Facebook and infrequently on Twitter. #Daisychain reminds me of summer.
Love came at dawn, when all the world was fair,
When crimson glories, bloom, and
song were rife;
Love came at dawn when hope’s wings fanned the air,
And murmured “I am life.”
Love came at even, when the day was done,
When heart and brain were tired, and
Love came at eve, shut out the sinking sun,
And whispered “I am rest.”
Susy Clemens, (1872-1896)

Recently spotted in our collection: Patrons Are People: How to Be a Model Librarian, published by the American Library Association in 1956 and full of helpful hints prepared and illustrated by Sarah Leslie Wallace.
In a 1982 issue of Gary Larson’s excellent comic “The Far Side”, a caveman lecturer pointed to a picture of the tail spikes of a stegosaur and called it the “Thagomizer, after the late Thag Stimmons.” While it is obviously anachronistic to feature dinosaurs and hominids in the same cartoon, the term Thagomizer has been adopted as an unofficial term for a stegosaur’s tail spikes by the Smithsonian Institute, and used in documentaries by the BBC.
