If you've ever wanted to go to Israel, but haven't gotten there yet, these pics are really lovely.  No politics, just the land itself.  Since Hebrew is read from right to left, the arrow to go to the next page in the album is on the bottom LEFT.  Pour a cup of tea, put on some nice music, and enjoy.

This woman needs our support! 
Dr. Hawa Abdi runs a hospital in Somalia and stands up to extremists there.

I'm 4 days behind on LJ, what did I miss?

Steamcon was full of epic win and awesomesauce.  Rivka got scared by a zombie, but the invisible flying monkeys were well under control.  Much fun was had by all, and detailed posts will follow, as soon as my brain stops spinning.

In other news, OMG THE CLIMATE IS CHANGING!  Seattle has snow.  Yay!!!

I have entirely too much work to do between now and New Years.  If you see me on LJ too much, kick me.  OK?

This is such a beautiful video.  I think it sums up why Halloween is really the opposite of Jewish ideals.  We've had a bellyful of death, and then some.  Why give it an audience now, even for pretend?  We don't need to play at being scared.  Time is always too short, let's enjoy LIFE, death will come for us all eventually. 

May she live to 120 and a day.

Pink not your thing?  No worries here!   100% of the proceeds go to breast cancer research. 

Bid this up for a good cause!  

Check out all of the other cool auction items that have been gathered by the amazingly big-hearted Donna Ricci of Clockwork Couture.

I've fallen madly in love with Yuri Norshteyn.  I could spend hours watching his little films.

But the new MakersMarket site is coming along nicely!

I've already had one sale so far, and I'm really excited about this project. They're hoping for a mini-launch next week. I sure hope they get the layout fixed before then, the text blocks are still all over the place.

Do me a favor? Go take a look, and if you find any site bugs or things you just want to complain to Heather about, email help@makersmarket.com. She really appreciates the feedback.

I'm so excited I could pee my pants! :-O

Obviously, they are totally in Beta mode, but WOW! The people behind BoingBoing and Make Magazine are starting a new venue that is INVITATION ONLY AND TOTALLY CURATED! Holy cow, it's a dream come true. It's going to be a completely targeted audience of steampunks, mad scientists, geeks, nerds and other techno minded folks. They promote REALLY heavily, and they give you tools to link to YouTube, Flickr, etc and they don't care if you promote your own website!

No twee, ironic crap need apply. :-D
