Sunday Randomness #80 : Match 70 movie madness mentions!

We are doing different bulletin board activities at work and a recent one featured movie quotes and titles in a matching game.  (I did this board with my bulletin board partner along with my family who helped us pick some of the quotes and pictures.)  Be forewarned: there are a couple of duplicate movies with different quotes from the same movie.  In addition, some quotes may be mentioned in different movies in a series, but other quotes are only in one particular movie in a series.  This is not a perfect project so I did not include things like punctuation.

I'll feature the answers next Sunday.  Good luck and have fun!

Sunday Randomness #412: Garage fish

A neighborhood friend had a leaf fish hanging from their garage door.  It literally looked like a fish caught on a line and I couldn't resist taking a picture or two.

The leaf fish was golden on one side and reddish on the other. It would spin and dance when the breeze caught it.

I thought it was a perfect example of finding joy in the little things.

  • I should dearly love that the world should be ever so little better for my presence. Even on this small stage we have our two sides, and something might be done by throwing all one's weight on the scale of breadth, tolerance, charity, temperance, peace, and kindliness to man and beast. We can't all strike very big blows, and even the little ones count for something.
-Sir Arthur Conan Doyle

Author #166: Rosenthal with sweet cookie advice

Amy Krouse Rosenthal wrote many books but these two impart nuggets of wisdom with beautiful cookie baking illustrations.  From messages about compromise to consideration to listening and unconditionally accepting the cookies of others, her audience can learn to be better people through courtesy and respect.  The examples illustrated in the steps surrounding cookie making and baking echo the lessons in the text. Jane Dyer and Brooke Dyer did the beautiful illustrations for both Sugar Cookies and One Smart Cookie  Read more about Ms. Rosenthal at  There's also a cookie recipe at the end of each book.

Sunday Randomness #44: Holy 2016 DVD, Batman!

If you were a fan of the Batman tv series (which I saw on a black and white tv) in the sixties you will likely love this animated version of Batman in Return of the Caped Crusaders.  Recommended by a co-worker (thanks!), I laughed aloud in a number of places at the old throw back jokes.  With the voice talents of Adam West, Burt Ward, and Julie Newmar, one can enjoy a bit of nostalgia in cartoon form with a modern twist on the story (without being too modern!) in this 2016 DVD special.

Author #165: Birtha wrote a picture book to highlight the plight of children with a parent in prison or jail

Far Apart, Close in Heart Being a Family When a Loved One is Incarcerated by Becky Birtha and illustrated by Maja Kastelic is a timely picture book that should be read to almost all children whether they have a loved one in jail or prison or not.  The book explores some of the feelings of children and the relationship they have with their loved one and others.Children are often shunned by their peers for something a parent did and then the child is left isolated and marginalized.  The child also has a number of feelings that can be difficult to both feel and express ranging from anger to embarrassment to guilt and sadness.  This book does a good job at introducing the subject and helping give voice to the more than 2 million children with a parent in jail or prison.  See more of Ms, Birtha's books at:

Author #164: Boelts maneuvers around a moral dilemma involving money and bikes

Maribeth Boelts tells the story of A Bike Like Sergio's with illustrations by Noah Z. Jones.  Ruben wants a bike like his friend, Sergio.  When he finds some money he thinks he will finally get the bike of his dreams.  But when he gets to feels empathy for the person who lost the money he has a change of heart.  Doing the right thing sometimes hurts but can also help us to ultimately feel better about ourselves when we try to understand and help others.  This story does not necessarily have a typical happy ending but I found it satisfying and morally uplifting.
