Queen Zenobia

Widow of Palmyra's ruler Adainat, Zenobia, in A.D. 271, took advantage of a Rome's temporary inattention to send her generals on a campaign of conquest that for a time incorporated the whole of the Middle East, from Egypt to Anatolia (Turkey) under her rule. She consciously modeled herself on Cleopatra and claimed to be a descendant. Her rule, though it ended in military defeat by Rome, was noted for tolerance and for fostering a wide-ranging trade with Abyssinia, Arabia, and India. Zenobia not only sent forth her generals, she often rode with them on camel or horseback. When eventually cornered, she successfully talked her way out of the situation and lived to become a celebrity in Rome.

Why isn't this a movie/book?

Get off the phone!

Most people will not remember the flip, panel paddles thatwere all the rage in the 70s. The paddles had different words you could flash at a driver like 'your cute' , ' get off the road'. The Drivemocion, which is a small electronic display that can attach to the back window and types out messages such as "Back OFF" & "THANKS".

In Memory - 14 of August


"If we shadows have offended,
Think but this, and all is mended,
That you have but slumber'd here
While these visions did appear.
And this weak and idle theme,
No more yielding but a dream,
Gentles, do not reprehend:
if you pardon, we will mend:
And, as I am an honest Puck,
If we have unearned luck
Now to 'scape the serpent's tongue,
We will make amends ere long;
Else the Puck a liar call;
So, good night unto you all.
Give me your hands, if we be friends,
And Robin shall restore amends."

A Midsummer Night’s Dream - Shakespeare

The Covenant

Eye candy & special effects. That's hot.


The Illusionist

"Ed Norton casts an intoxicating spell as a Victorian-era
illusionist in this thriller that is as moving-and sexy- as it is suspenseful."

See it! Don't read about it or watch a trailer, just see it.

Lacroix and his design team promise to transform their
drab interiors into ultra modern, stylish, boutique-hotel-like environments.


Objects of Desire

These accessories are a few of the many I saw online by this
Parisian designer. I can't even begin to imagine the Rockstar money
the items must cost.

Instant Spray Shampoo?

First of all, I love the retro 70s design of the can.

Secondly, as my 'mother-in-law'
said about my blog "what's the point"?

I will wait until 'Gee, Your Hair Smells Terrific' is released again.

The new Compass is looking good. I did not like the body design

The Venture Brothers

Dayum! Now this is on
iTunes as a video download.
Man, how do I come up with this stuff.


'The Glass Books of the Dream Eaters'

Books set in the Victorian Era are so interesting to me.
'The Difference Engine' by Bruce Sterling & William Gibson
is a really good read. 'The Glass Books of the Dream Eaters'
is "part Jules Verne adventure & part Sherlock Holmes mystery".



Last year, I fell in love with Spain. I dream of going back to southern Spain and it's islands.
