Because Life Is Too Short Not to Hypnotize Lobsters

The National Library of New Zealand brings us a hypnotized lobster. Then a "normally angry" lobster.

Beyond the lobster tale, this site has a fabulous collection of old New Zealand newspapers -- from 1839 to 1945. Good research material for anyone with an interest in Aoteroa.

Yes, I admit it. We really used to dress like that. And by we, I mean I. And my sisters. And everyone else, practically.

Horrors from the past.


Here's rosemary -- that's for remembrance. And boiled carrots for bad tempers. A set of recommendations from 1910 for "leguminotherapy ... a recipe for good human temperament."

Forgive me if you see these links several times on Facebook, Twitter, etc. These are just too wonderful not to share.
