Woodall Rodgers Park Update

Last week the folks at The Park announced they received another 9 million in private donations. This leaves only 17 million left in private donations to gather before completion. Last Thursday, The Architect and I went to hear Blair Kamin speak at the Dallas Architecture Forum. We had the privilege to speak to Blair before the lecture where he expressed his excitement about The Park. During the lecture he stated that The Park was one of the best uses of stimulus funds he had seen. He also paraleled the project of The Park with the WPA projects done in the 1930s.

Read the entire press release on The Park here.

Snow day DIY

Today is Day 2 of Icepocalypse 2011 here in Dallas. I haven't left the house since Sunday and I am tired of watching HGTV and the Real Housewives of [insert city].

So I whipped up this brightly colored wreath you see here. Learn how to make your own wreath over at the Take Heart blog.

Strindberg and Helium

For those of you who have the day off because of Iceapocalypse 2011, check out Strindberg and Helium. It is a series of cartoons about Swedish writer August Strindberg and his pal Helium.
