What NOT to do on facebook

I was working on a project for my young adult services class when I stumbled across this: Hilarity.

Transportation of the Future Takes a Clue from the Past

President Obama is proposing a high speed rail network and construction project. I'm loving this idea, but I'll be curious to see just how expensive it is for the average traveler. I'm all for trains, but if it's just as expensive as flying, I don't see it taking off (pardon the pun). Let's hope it's affordable. And thank goodness it will create some jobs...and cut back on stupid oil and gas costs.

Happy National Library Week!

Here's a little National Library Week treat. Who knew these people were librarians?

Batgirl is my hero(ine). ;)

Post-Easter Wonderfulness

Robbie Seay Band's "Beautiful, Scandalous Night":

Go on up to the mountain of mercy

To the crimson perpetual tide
Kneel down on the shore
Be thirsty no more
Go under and be purified
Follow Christ to the holy mountain
Sinner sorry and wrecked by the fall
Cleanse your heart and your soul
In the fountain that flows
For you and for me and for all

At the wonderful, tragic, mysterious tree
On that beautiful, scandalous night you and me
Were atoned by His blood and forever washed white
On that beautiful, scandalous night

On the hillside, you will be delivered
At the foot of the cross justified
And your spirit restored
By the river that pours
From our blessed Savior's side
