while i do like fall weather and candy and black cats and carving pumpkins i actually kind of, hate, halloween. this, however, i do like. probably because i like the ghostbusters theme song and hilarious dancing.happy halloween to me!

the voyager golden record is so beautiful. if i was an e.t. i would think that earth was pretty great.
the vivian maier story has inspired me to begin to scan the some one hundred 23/4" x 23/4" glass slides that i have of an unknown family. the only information that i can figure is that they seem to be from florida and they range from 1951 to 1953. many of them are of vacations to cuba and miami and others are of various family members on front yards, in swimming pools and beautiful gardens. i got them about 5 years ago at a stoop sale in philadelphia. finally scanning them, and actually having them scan fairly well, is very exciting to me. i've always wanted to utilize them somehow, but they've always felt 'off-limits' and too precious. maybe scanning and sharing will be a good start.
