Secrets, Poems, and Maps

Movie news: Secret of Kells is awesome. You should probably see it. Such amazing images, and a pretty compelling story too.


But don't just take my word for it: you can also read the New York Times review. And if you're a Netflix member, you can watch it right now! Online!

We also saw Howl recently. Its animation is not nearly as cool as the Secret of Kells stuff, but that James Franco sure can act.

Not a bad poem either, of course.

Finally, Diana has a new blog, The Rotary.

I like it.

I also like this map Diana pointed readers to:


Cheers--hope you have a great week!


  1. The Kells illustrations were mesmerizing...

    Congratulations to Diana in her new position!

    Love those maps.

    Mom D.

  2. Hey, that's fun! Thanks for the shout-out. Is that what the kids are still calling it?

    And thanks Mom D. for the well wishes, that's awful sweet.

  3. Thanks for stopping by, Diana!

    Glad things are going so well back east!
