1. Ursula The Sea Witch Costume
I love to dress up at Halloween (see It's a Treat to Trick) and most of the time I make my own costumes. Usually the inspiration is Disney. I love Disney characters, whether they are cute like Minnie Mouse, spunky like Jessie from Toy Story II, or evil like Cruella DeVil. These characters are rec...

The fault is in my granddaughter'...
3. Dog Days this Summer
Books, Poetry & Writing - Thu, 11 Sep 2014 12:20:50
This is Zack, our 10-year-old Dalmatian. Like most Dals, he's an active boy. The problem is that he goes from couch potato to speed demon without warm-up. He is also a bit on the stout side. Either or both of these traits may account for the tear in his knee experienced in early August 2013.
4. Famous Dalmatian Dog Lovers
Pets & Animals - Thu, 11 Sep 2014 11:44:05
We self-proclaimed Dalmatian lovers come from all walks of life. Because our dogs are an old breed (little is known about their origins; however, their images have shown up on ancient Egyptian coffins dating back to 1991 B.C. - 1783 B.C.) we know that there have been Dalmatian lovers for a very l...
5. Just 'Cause it Sparkles, Don't Make it Gold

7. The Anxiety of Publishing (or what to do while you wait)
Holidays & Celebrations - Thu, 11 Sep 2014 02:30:21
So, what does it take to get a book published? Well, I can't vouch for what everybody goes through, but in this lens I share my experience on how my historical fiction adventure Embracing the Elephant became a reality. As of August 24, 2012, I can claim to be published.
This lens tells the story...
8. Endless Possibilities for Halloween
Books, Poetry & Writing - Thu, 11 Sep 2014 15:02:21
I could recycle one of my old costumes (see It's a Treat to Trick), but that would be cheating, wouldn't it? I could duplicate the Angelfish costume I made for my granddaughter, only on a much larger scale, but I already know how difficult that would be (that was a lot of work - worth it, but sti...
9. Elephants in America - September 22 is Elephant Appreciation Day
Holidays & Celebrations - Thu, 11 Sep 2014 00:19:16

12. On the Wings of a Pig: John Steinbeck
Entertainment & Media - Thu, 11 Sep 2014 10:50:10
This reference to a pig is not intended to be derogatory: it is part of a motto John Steinbeck used throughout his adult life: Ad Astra Per Alia Porci - Latin for "To the stars on the wings of a pig." He was referring to himself, also choosing the self-deprecating description: a "lumbering soul t...

15. The Halloween Tree: A Book Review
Culture & Society - Thu, 11 Sep 2014 02:09:00
Did you ever wonder where it all started? Why we dress in costume and threaten to scare others for that little bit of candy on this night, of all nights? Why are we fascinated with the terror that Halloween can evoke?
Ray Bradbury's The Halloween Tree is no dry historical treatise on the origins...
16. Snow Flower and the Secret Fan: A Book Review
Holidays & Celebrations - Thu, 11 Sep 2014 02:06:06
A Most Worthy Woman
In the Chinese culture it is reputed females are not as valued as they are in the West. I cannot personally vouch for this, but have long heard that this is true, and has been for centuries.
Despite this assertion stories of strong and influential Chinese women abound. From pe...

19. How I Learned to Love My Hair
Holidays & Celebrations - Thu, 11 Sep 2014 10:54:11
...with a little help from John Frieda.I don't normally write product lenses.

23. My Top Ten List of Cate Blanchett Performances
Education - Thu, 11 Sep 2014 02:06:06
This talented Australian actress has portrayed queens (both flesh and elven) and a pedophile, a sadistic Russian military commander and a neurotic housewife, a silver-screen icon and a hopeless gambler. And with every role, I believe. I believe she is the person she wants me to believe she is.
24. A Renaissance for Ye Olde Book Shoppes
Entertainment & Media - Thu, 11 Sep 2014 02:51:50
They really do exist. Quiet and unassuming, they peek through the urban landscape like the delicate ferns and lichen that emerge from a fire-ravaged forest. They don't shout their existence, but discreetly stand as a testament to endurance and persistence. They are independent bookstores.
25. The Local Buzz - at Hicklebee's of course!
Books, Poetry & Writing - Thu, 11 Sep 2014 02:51:49
Hicklebee's is an independent bookstore in Downtown Willow Glen (a district of San Jose, California) that has been catering to the reading tastes of its community for over 30 years. That type of longevity is remarkable for any business, but especially for a book shop in the age of Amazon.com.
26. Little Pictures of Japan: A Book Review
Books, Poetry & Writing - Thu, 11 Sep 2014 12:05:49
Books are my friends. They have always been my friends, to be enjoyed time and time again. As a child, I cherished their familiar feel and voice. They were old friends, yet new with each reading. Entertaining and enlightening.
Not much has changed in the ensuing years. My printed friends are sti...

On May 2, 2014, my grandfather was going to be 102 years old.

A few years ago, I sat d...
28. Top Five Reasons to Remember Tom Wilkinson's Name
Relationships & Family - Thu, 11 Sep 2014 01:54:38
He might be anybody: your neighbor; the put-upon doorman at your high-rise; the local bookstore owner. Anybody. But he isn't. He's the talented and versatile actor Tom Wilkinson.

30. War Horse - The Theatrical Production
Books, Poetry & Writing - Thu, 11 Sep 2014 12:19:15
Yesterday (August 12, 2012), my husband and I had the privilege of seeing the San Francisco production of War Horse at the Curran Theater. It was, in a word, magnificent.
I can think of no play and few musicals with which I have been more enthralled, more engaged, or more impressed. It was a mov...
31. My Six Pix for Scariest Black-and-White Movies
Entertainment & Media - Thu, 11 Sep 2014 02:53:20
What is it about being scared that we love?
When I was a kid, I begged my parents to let me stay up late to watch monster movies and horror flicks...after which I was almost too frightened to walk down the dark hallway to my bed. I leapt from the doorway into the bed itself and pulled the covers...
32. Six Horrible Father's Day Gifts
Holidays & Celebrations - Thu, 11 Sep 2014 02:26:55
I am reminded of the gifts I gave my dad on Father's Days Past, when he was alive.
Gifts for Mom were a lot easier to select - candy, flowers, perfume, jewelry, brunch. These are things I still get for my mom and she always seems to enjoy them. She says she would be happy with only a card, but I...
33. Riggs - One Man's Guardian Angel
Parenting & Kids - Thu, 11 Sep 2014 14:14:52
I belong to a group on Facebook entitled Dalmatian Lovers. All of us are self-proclaimed Dalmatian nuts and we post pictures, videos, and stories of the lovely creatures who own us.
I can't keep track of the number of postings each day and I never tire of them. Dalmatians are such beautiful dogs...
34. The Angelfish Kid
Pets & Animals - Thu, 11 Sep 2014 11:54:15
When my middle granddaughter Isabella announced that she wanted to be an angelfish for her children's community theater production of The Little Mermaid I balked. Since I am commonly known as the "Sewing Grandmother" in the family, I'd already agreed to morph her sister Avalon into a jellyfish. B...
35. Ten Books That Open Your Eyes to the Golden State
Holidays & Celebrations - Thu, 11 Sep 2014 11:13:18

However, did you know...
36. The Road: A Book Review
Books, Poetry & Writing - Thu, 11 Sep 2014 14:38:27
Reality scares me - more than fantasy, more than horror, more than science fiction, I am petrified by a realistically presented story that exposes humankind for what it is (or can be).
The Road by Cormac McCarthy is just such a story. It was the best book of its kind I've ever read; it was the w...
37. Black and Boo
Books, Poetry & Writing - Thu, 11 Sep 2014 00:37:47
Breaking a mirror will bring you seven years of ill luck. Walking under a ladder is also bad, as is opening an umbrella indoors, singing at the table, or a bird flying in a window.
Humans have many luck-related beliefs that, to this day, remain part of our culture despite little evidence to supp...
38. A Patriot Game - Would You Vote for These Men?
Holidays & Celebrations - Thu, 11 Sep 2014 02:50:46
That would be the late 18th Century...of course.
Ever wonder how 21st Century Americans might react to one of the original Founding Fathers if he were still alive and running on the next presidential ballot? Would we vote for him? Would we want him to represent our country, be the Leader of the ...
39. A Parade of the Pets
Culture & Society - Thu, 11 Sep 2014 02:54:22
In the Hart household, there was never a time without pets. Sometimes there was only one, but usually it was a zoo. And it wasn't limited to cats and dogs: when I was in High School, we had two dogs, four cats, a canary, two turtles and two mice all at the same time.
Mom was not pleased with the...
40. John Adams: A Book Review
Pets & Animals - Thu, 11 Sep 2014 15:02:15
A Recalcitrant Patriot
John Adams, the second president of the United States, described himself as a farmer, sometimes a lawyer. Perhaps he would have been happier had he spent his life on his Massachusetts farm or practicing law in the countryside around Boston, but America would not have been t...
41. King Arthur - A Literary Barometer
Books, Poetry & Writing - Thu, 11 Sep 2014 15:01:49
King Arthur Pendragon is a unique character in terms of history and literature. His existence is debated, yet his legend has survived for over 1500 years.

42. The Agony of Publicity - 10 (maybe more) Ways to Promote Your Book
Books, Poetry & Writing - Thu, 11 Sep 2014 02:54:22
What does it take to have a best-selling fiction book? To be on reading lists everywhere in the U.S. (and maybe beyond)? To have your book be a great success?
I haven't a clue.
But I'm willing to learn and, as I do, I will fill this lens with information that you (as an independently published ...
43. Four Tiny Toys of the 1960s
Books, Poetry & Writing - Thu, 11 Sep 2014 02:54:22
By necessity, toys are small. For millennia humans have been crafting toys made to represent the adult world reduced to fit in the hands of a child.
Miniaturizing is nothing new. However there was a time when only the rich could afford tiny hand-crafted niceties -- it took a lot of time and effo...
44. Close Encounters of the Round-about Kind
Hobbies, Games & Toys - Thu, 11 Sep 2014 00:41:29
Roundabouts kept me from killing my mother. It's true. Roundabouts saved my mother's life and my sanity. Had it not been for these lovely little traffic circles, I might be an orphan now. Or in jail. Or who knows.
Let me explain...
Introductory image from an article on "The Busiest Junctions in...
45. Confessions of a Squidoo Addict
Travel & Places - Thu, 11 Sep 2014 00:42:11
It's a fact. Once you try Squidoo, you'll never be the same. One minute, you're a normal, healthy, active human being -- then WHAM! You get hit in the face by some Squidmonster (or SquidAngel or something like that). And you're hooked.
How do you know?
Oh, you know!
46. The Skeleton Keeper
Squidoo Community - Thu, 11 Sep 2014 02:54:22
I'll bet there's somebody in your family who does what I do. Maybe not everyone has heard that Uncle Fred spent time in prison or that Grandma Myrtle once owned an establishment that was, shall we say, less than savory. I'll bet there's somebody who knows these things, however. Somewhere, somebod...
47. Relish that Cran-Cran-Cranberry Relish
Relationships & Family - Thu, 11 Sep 2014 05:19:13
When I was growing up, Thanksgiving came in a can...mostly. Canned yams, canned green beans, canned cranberry sauce (and eventually cranberry relish). The turkey, potatoes, and gravy were about the only things made from scratch.
I changed that when I started fixing Thanksgiving meals for my fami...
48. I Feel A Thong Coming On
Food & Cooking - Thu, 11 Sep 2014 02:30:21
Several years ago, an actress friend of mine was appearing in the period musical Ragtime. I was quite excited for her good fortune and peppered her with endless questions. During the course of the conversation, Jeanine mentioned that the costume designer for the show was insisting that the female...
49. Oh Rats! July 22nd is Ratcatcher Day!
Fashion & Beauty - Thu, 11 Sep 2014 02:26:53
Ratcatcher's Day pays homage to the man who rid the town of Hamelin from its vermin! Who was he, this man of legend? And why is he celebrated and reviled in turn?
It is a mystery. And even before we begin to explore the nature of this enigmatic man, another puzzle surfaces: what is the true date...
Books, Poetry & Writing - Thu, 11 Sep 2014 10:53:52
When I watch a movie, I want to believe the actors are who they say they are. Simple, right?
Not always. Too many of the people in movies are not actors so much as personalities - they may be widely appealing, but their popularity is based not on their acting chops but on their own character.
51. Save the Bay
Entertainment & Media - Thu, 11 Sep 2014 02:06:06
"Save the Bay" is a rallying cry: for everyone who wants to learn about and understand the history and importance of a wondrous natural resource whose existence and well-being impacts many lives: The San Francisco Bay.

52. Colby -- the Clown Prints of Dalmatians
Education - Thu, 11 Sep 2014 02:09:00
Colby was our first Dalmatian. He was not to be our last. He has been gone now for thirteen years, yet I will never forget him.
For all intent and purposes, Colby was a rescue dog and came into our household with all of the baggage that comes with most rescue dogs -- fetishes and phobias and fea...

If you are interested in the development of the cul...
54. Wall-E: A Movie Review
Books, Poetry & Writing - Thu, 11 Sep 2014 12:19:12
One-Stop Shopping If you're looking for romance and adventure, look no further than Disney/Pixar's environmentally friendly boy-meets-girl fable, Wall-E. Wall-E is a tale as old as time - only with a twist: boy meets girl, boy loses girl, boy finds her again and saves the planet in the meantime.T...
55. Animal Babies - Quizzes to Test Your Knowledge
Entertainment & Media - Thu, 11 Sep 2014 01:52:07
We have many names for human offspring: baby, infant, newborn. As they age, there are even more: child, toddler, tot, kid. Our language is rich with references for newly arrived humans.
Some of the first words spoken by those young humans are the informal names for animal offspring: kitty, puppy...
56. Ladybug Girl and Bumblebee Boy: A Book Review
Education - Thu, 11 Sep 2014 01:51:44
Ask "The Expert"
Who do you ask when you want to find the best children's book? The expert, of course -- a child! In this case, I didn't even have to ask my granddaughter, Avalon, what her favorite book was. I already knew: Ladybug Girl and Bumblebee Boy by Jacky Davis, with colorful illustration...

58. Wedded in History
Travel & Places - Thu, 11 Sep 2014 01:52:11
I keep the family photographs (See The Skeleton Keeper). I have thousands of photos that date back to the late 1800s. Unfortunately, they are not as neatly kept and organized as I would like, but that is a job reserved for another day. As of now, I simply keep them and cherish them.
I have pictu...
59. It's A Treat To Trick
Relationships & Family - Thu, 11 Sep 2014 00:37:49
It began innocently enough. I wanted to prevent the dogs from barking whenever the doorbell rang - that would have only served to scare the children. To prevent the dogs from going berserk, I decided to distribute the Halloween candy from outside the house. We have a big front porch; we live in C...
60. The Jellyfish Kid
Holidays & Celebrations - Thu, 11 Sep 2014 00:23:25

61. A Less-Than-Perfect Life
Holidays & Celebrations - Thu, 11 Sep 2014 12:19:15

62. The Seven Things I Like Most About The Environmental Volunteers
Parenting & Kids - Thu, 11 Sep 2014 11:54:07
On the eve of his inauguration, President Obama asked the nation to think about local communities - what individual voices could do for our own neighborhood to positively champion the causes that are closest to our hearts.
Closest to my heart is the environment, animals and children (not necessa...
63. I Write, Therefore...
Education - Thu, 11 Sep 2014 00:37:49
I write. I write every day. I didn't always write every day, but in 2012 after publishing my first novel Embracing the Elephant I found I could not stop.
One of my middle-school English teachers once encouraged us, his students, to keep a daily journal, to write whenever we could, whenever the s...
64. Pumpkin Bread from Your Jack O'Lantern
Books, Poetry & Writing - Thu, 11 Sep 2014 11:09:47
That's right. No need to toss ole Jack out the day after Halloween (provided the neighborhood thugs have left him on your property). You can have your Jack and eat him, too. Thanks to the Rombauer ladies (of Joy of Cooking fame) there is a use for that burned out hull of a pumpkin that will put a...
65. A Passion For Life - What College Can Offer
Food & Cooking - Thu, 11 Sep 2014 10:54:14
College is a great place to hone your skills, to increase your earning potential, and to validate and expand your knowledge and interests. It is also the best place to learn more about you: how you respond under pressure, how you handle competition, how you multitask.
Best of all, however, colle...
66. Misplaced Oscars
Education - Thu, 11 Sep 2014 11:13:17
Oh no, that can't be! How could the Motion Picture Academy of Arts and Sciences (or simply "The Academy") present its highest honor to the wrong person or wrong film? How could they give the statuette fondly known as "Oscar" to someone or something that was less than the best?
This lens is about...
67. Making Sense of Scents - Bloodhounds Do It Best
Entertainment & Media - Thu, 11 Sep 2014 11:09:45
I don't mean the odors that come FROM us! I'm talking about odors we can detect!
Why is it that my husband can put his nose into a glass of Cabernet Sauvignon and detect leather and chocolate and smoke among the fruity smells, but I smell only berries?
How is it that we can detect the scent of ...
68. When Balloons Ceased to Fly -- Really
Education - Thu, 11 Sep 2014 12:06:25
I had not heard about a helium problem until I tried to order balloons for an up-coming event in mid-2012. It was then that I was told, due to a nationwide shortage, I couldn't buy more than 6 inflated balloons at any one visit. Nor could I order them for pick-up later in the week because the hel...
69. Cutting A Rug
Education - Thu, 11 Sep 2014 00:37:26
There is little doubt in my mind that my granddaughters have caught the acting bug...all three of them. They participate in school productions, after-school productions, you name it.
Because these are community-produced shows, the familial community is generally called upon to supply the costume...

Entertainment & Media - Thu, 11 Sep 2014 05:19:13

71. My Five Favorite Russell Crowe Performances
Squidoo Community - Thu, 11 Sep 2014 00:09:50
Many know him for his Oscar-winning performance in Gladiator. Too many know him for his off-screen exploits with flying telephones. No matter what you think of the personal life of Australia's perennial miscreant, however, I hope you agree that he is a brilliant and versatile actor.
72. The Rivals: A Book Review
Entertainment & Media - Thu, 11 Sep 2014 12:32:31
Ever read a great non-fiction book about someone you'd never heard of?
