I just found a tool that can help with the 1940s census. As you probably know, the 1940s census will be coming out on April 2nd. They will be indexed by enumeration district, but not by name. It will be a while before it will be indexed by name.
If you are like me, you do not want to wait. Stephen Morse has made a cool tool that can help with that: http://stevemorse.org/census/unified.html
All you need to do is list the state, town and street address. From that it can give a (or a few) enumeration district. Yay!
Super cool news! The company Archaia has announced that they are working on a graphic novel that will be the prequel to the fantasy movie “Labyrinth”.
Have you seen Labyrinth? It came out in 1986, and it had fantasy, creatures made by Jim Henson and designed by Brian Froud and starring David Bowie and Jennifer Connolly. Oh yes, how could I forget — it is also a musical. It is one of my favorite movies.
So a graphic novel is kind of cool (a movie would have been extremely cool) but according to Entertainment Tonight they may have music made for the novel. So, even better… Now, if they can get David Bowie to sing too… *hope* *hope*. They say it should be out in late 2012.
Kerri from sixuntilme had this meme on her website. It will be a lot less impressive from me, since my posting earlier in the year was spotty at best. Here we go: the first lines of a definitive post from each month in 2011.
June – First of all, I want to say that the waitress at Friendlys was very informed, and did tell me the correct information.
December – Are you interested in hearing about foods that are super good for you?
“The First Wealth Is Health” – Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803-1882)
I bet anyone who has a chronic illness would agree with this quote. Quite a few illnesses, like diabetes, have no cure. It doesn’t matter how much money you have. You will not be cured. We might not complain every day, but let me tell you — it isn’t fun, at all.
