It was beautiful in Maryland today and warmer weather is predicted for later in the week and through the weekend. It’s been pretty chilly these past couple of days and I even wore gloves (gasp) during my afternoon walk yesterday.
A reader questioned the font on my new header. It’s called Freebooter Script and I got it as a free download at Dafont.com.
And speaking of websites, my husband found an interesting one last month and has been visiting it daily ever since. It’s called Archive.org.
It boasts a huge digital library of free books & music and a wayback machine (whatever that is). Initially, my husband used the site solely to access old Grateful Dead tunes. He’s kept ticket stubs from his youth and can actually call up the concert listed on a stub and listen to it. The audio from the really old stuff is sort of lacking, but still – it’s pretty interesting.
There’s his ticket stub from a show at the Philadelphia Spectrum in 1980 when we went to see the Grateful Dead. They weren’t my favorite group, but it was one of the most interesting concerts I’d attended. Lots of zaniness going on in the crowd and outside.
Lately on Archive.org, my husband’s been listening to classic literature and poetry, which I find really strange but nice. I’ve known him for over 30 years and he’s never expressed an interest in reading anything other than the newspaper.
We’ve been listening to the site during dinner. Tonight we listened to poetry.
And I think I’ll end on that note.
Until tomorrow, then.
