Apparently vacations, even ones at home (or maybe especially) are bad for blogging. I missed all sorts of fun September holidays including my own birthday! (Not to mention the birthdays of a number of friends - sorry.) So I've decided to add some information about today, September 21. It's the International Day of Peace http://www.internationaldayofpeace.org/ The Hobbit was published on this date in 1937. I'll let you decide how to celebrate. It's also World Gratitude Day so think about what you are grateful for and maybe say thank you.
Chuck Jones was born on this date in 1912! So go watch some Warner Brothers cartoons. Happy Birthday Stephen King!
