Better Blogging

Hi everyone!  I'm discovering it's hard to keep up with a blog - life gets in the way, but then again, it's supposed to!  Since book reviews only go so far, especially when the blog is titled "Books, Blogs and Assorted Musings", I thought it was time to add the other two parts.  Get ready for Discoveries and Blogs to Check Out.  I'd love feedback, recommendations, or just general comments.

 Today's Discovery:  TAZO white cranberry (white tea with white cranberry juice),  found in the refrigerated section of Whole Foods.  Can I just say YUM?!  I am usually only a hot tea drinker (which almost got me expelled from the Southern Chicks' Association - they believe sweet tea is the only appropriate non-alcoholic drink) but this ROCKS!
Today's Blog/Site:  Check out - started by Duke grads, so you know it's good!  For example, did you know the following about Sesame Street:
Oscar the Grouch used to be orange! Jim Henson decided to make him green before the second season of Sesame Street. How did Oscar explain the color change? He said he'd gone on vacation to the very damp Swamp Mushy Muddy and he turned green overnight.
 I get the magazine and the emails, both of which are incredible sources of information that will amaze and confound your friends as they wonder where you get the time to learn such trivia.  Your secret is safe with me!
