Our favorite finds from the internet this past week.

Dot ( – Do you like OLD photographs? Old COLOR photographs? How about 100+ year old color photographs….. got your attention didn’t I. 🙂 Enjoy these!

JayDee ( – I’m always on the look-out for new recipes to try. This week I saw an article on Real Simple that includes some tasty looking recipes for the 4th of July. I think I’m going to have to try the shrimp skewers with feta, and the watermelon and tomato salad. Yum! How about you? What’s your favorites?

Laurie ( – One of Boston’s great traditions is the 4th of July Pops Concert on the Esplanade. The highlight of the show is Tchaikovsky’s 1812 Orchestra. The story of how music inspired by Napoleon’s retreat from Russia became a patriotic concert staple across the country comes down to two things–fireworks and howitzers.

Linda ( –  I found a great article this week on the benefits of gardening. Believe it or not, the upside of gardening goes way beyond the obvious:  food on the table or flowers in your home. It’s actually good for you from a health perspective. 

Mary Ellen ( –  In celebration of the 20th Anniversary of J K Rowling’s book Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone, I highly recommend that you read this remarkable series this summer. Get into your 11 year-old self and read this first book wherever you used to read at that age – mine was in my bedroom on my bed. Before the movies came out I created all of the places mostly in my mind. I’d love to go to England to see this place because Diagon Alley is better than my imagination dreamed up!

Pam ( – Wouldn’t this be fun for a camping trip this weekend? A retro styled camper with all the comforts of home. A tiny home, that is. 

Tina ( –  Animals are amazing and I just can’t stop myself from looking when I happen upon breathtaking photography of nature’s creatures.  I am sharing these beautiful wildlife photographs.
