It's Fall!  This first weekend of October is one of my absolute favorites.  Makes me want to happy dance, like this (what, you think I can't??):


Principle in the type:  "One is happy as a result of one's own efforts, once one knows the necessary ingredients ... simple tastes, a certain degree of courage, self-denial to a point, love of work, and, above all, a clear conscience."      George Sand

Look, I'm really sad about the Naomi Watts, Liev Schreiber break-up.  They never married (and I'm a sucker for marriage).  Still it was 11 years and 2 kiddos.  "It is with great love, respect, and friendship in our hearts that we look forward to raising our children together and exploring this new phase of our relationship."    news

Oy vey.   But at least there was this:  "I certainly will support the outcome of this election."  and  "If she wins I will absolutely support her."        news

This summer a prankster changed electronic roadside signs in Buffalo to the stuff smiles are made of like, "It's All A Dream," and "I Love You," before authorities shut the fun and games down.   (I mean if you can call that fun and games; messing in such a 'dangerous way' with intricate and important government electronic roadside messages such as 'buckle up?'  Come on.   story

It's tough out there.   Be the good you want to see in the world.   Here's something to smile about:


Principle in the type:  "It's not our job to toughen our children up to face a cruel and heartless world.  It's our job to raise children who will make the world a little less cruel and heartless."     L.R. Knost

I love me a good gander at award's show dresses!   Just the creations they are, whether they work or not, the colors, the talent involved.   I don't know, maybe it's the model in me (insert laughing til it cries emoji)!   (Actress Tatiana Maslany, is pictured above.)    Look through some Emmy pics from Sunday here and find your favorites.  I have mine!

Attack on Americana!   In Studio City, California, "an elderly woman who lives in a home made famous by 'The Brady Bunch"  television show scared  "off burglars who targeted the house in the middle of the night."   Scary!  I don't know if Alice could have pulled this off?      story
