Image via WikipediaOk, unabashed Yankee fan here and I just wanted to drop in and give a hearty congrats to the Yankees on winning their 40th American League pennant. That's right, 40, which is a mind boggling number when you really think about it. Forty trips to the world series, simply astonishing.

Image by aLii_ via FlickrHello again and I know it's been a long time since my last post but I was on break here at the library but now I am back and ready to go.
Image by katieharbath via FlickrOne of the things that I planned for the blog is the occasional book/movie review. Now, I've been busy the last two weeks with this inter-filing/shifting thing so not only haven't I written any new posts, but I also haven't gone to the movies either. Now as many of you know, September is one of the black hole months for movie releases, the other is January. I say this because those are the two months, right after big movie seasons, the summer and holiday seasons, where movie studios dump their garbage flicks. The end result is there aren't too many movies worth seeing during those months. Once the good movies start being released again, be sure that I will post some movie reviews.
Image via WikipediaHello there and how ya be? Hope you had a good holiday weekend and that's the reason for lack of posting for the last week.
Image by thinkpanama via FlickrBeen ruminating on this topic for a while as I am on the search committee for new librarian hires. Interesting thing here is that I actually like being on the committee and that is not a suck up line in case my superiors find this blog sometime in the near future. Originally I was picked to be on the committee then I volunteered and now, I think, it's just assumed that I would volunteer. No matter to me, like I said before, I dig it.
Image via WikipediaFirst things first, before all the Facebook talk, I updated the Summer Movies and Summer Readings post since added some before the end of the summer.
