This is lemony bread-pudding french toast.
I found this blog from someone who's family came from Calabria in Italy. My great-grandmother was from there.
Then I started searching through other recipes to see if I could find one my grandmother made and one my mother made. I didn't find them.
My grandmother used to cook these little pizzas I've never seen anywhere else. The piece was square with a top like a mini calzone. She made spinach and raisin pizza for the adults and squares of cheese pizza's for us kids because we didn't like spinach. Ours didn't have the top piece. I remember the smell of the olive oil she used. I don't think anyone got the recipe or if it was even written down.
My favorite dish has always been my mother's turkey stuffing. She taught my brother and I how to make it and told us not to give the recipe to anyone. My brother gave it to my cousin and my mother never let him forget his disloyalty. (Is that a word?) My cousin made it but it wasn't like my mother's. When I make it it's close to my mother's but I'm wondering if she left some tiny ingredient out. She did tell me about the hard boiled eggs and black olives though, and a couple of other things.

This would be good for the library staff. Even though we're not in a large building, it would help to keep track of what people are working on. They could also document when something is going on in another room, note when certain patrons are unruly or when certain teens are asked to leave.
A seperate Twitter could be set up with the patrons. We would let them know when their materials are in, or when we have something new they might like. We could tell them about the various programs and of any last minute changes with the programs. An update on the status of the computers would help. Of course if they are coming to the library to use the computer, they probably don't have one at home. Patrons could tell about books they enjoy. Teens could post about their graphic novels, mothers about books they read to their children and kids about their latest series title. Patrons could give us ideas for programming. The possibilities abound.

I have been browsing Magnatune and found this cd from Argentina. I don't know what they're saying but I like it. I love the way they use the child's voice in #2. This post will be continued.
On Pandora I like the way the music or artist I pick is described and then similar music is selected. What I don't like is that they don't play the specific song I choose but often it's another selection by the same artist. I could spend hours - I think I have - on these two sites.

It's difficult to read because none of it stands out.
Searching the different sites listed in this lesson, I found a piece on Einstein.
I figured out how to embed but it won't play. I need to upgrade.

I tried to create a presentation with flickr pics but I couldn't download them onto it. (I need to learn the language of 2.0)
I did a presentation with my own pics. So instead of an in depth look at ancient libraries such as the library of Ephesus, we will look at several shots of my garden. http://docs.google.com/Present?docid=dsz9654_2hsqj4jhq&invite=zmkn92
