Aha ... do protons think????

Ah-hA to Zig-Zag by Maira Kalman

OK, I know I've posted about Maira Kalman's books before – here and here - but I promise I'm not obsessed or related to the author.  I just find her work so engaging that I had to tell you about it.

This is a children's book – but not just children will enjoy it.

She has taken 31 objects from the Cooper Hewitt, Smithsonian Design Museum and used them as an inspiration for working through the alphabet.

Her wonderful, quirky sense of humour is fabulous.  Get it from your library, or buy it, you won't regret it.

Thank you to the wonderful Jama for her post about this book which inspired me to get it.

Talking of the elephant in the room....

Food on Friday: BBQ


It's BBQ time – or barbecue – however you spell it!

To add your BBQ dishes, just put the name of the dish together with your blog name/name into the first Mr Linky box you will find below.  Then paste the url for your post about it into the second box.

I'll be pinning the dishes to this Pinboard which will make it easy for you to check them out at a glance.  The links from the earlier collection are also on that board.

Let's make this a real fine barbecue party.
