I'm so disappointed that I'm too unwell to go to a reading & party for an old friend tonight (who lives out of town now). You know I don't feel well if I cancel a hair appointment. And Julie still hates me for stuffing teensy quartered pills down her throat. It's a twice-a-day struggle & I yelled this morning. I feel terrible; it caused her to have an asthma attack. And, and, and. Back to bed with books...a new Inspector Montalbano by Andrea Camillieri. Oh if you've not read them, do. Here's a link to a Sicily Travel site that creates tours based on the books (& accompanying TV series)!

So, behind the old ironwork lets in light & air, though. Many good links on this page & on Giulia's blog. Please visit them & be well. Also, see the little rant below; it might concern you.*

*I stumbled onto hundreds & hundreds of images taken from both blogs with none of the attributions I give to the artists...much less to this humble mish-mosh (yes, I had plans a year ago for something better, didn't turn out that way, yet) & the GG blog. And super-annoying "Oh we don't know where we found them or who the photographers are..." Really? So you see--anyone who reads this--when people ask me why I don't publish-publish online, this is why. Amongst other reasons. But I will absolutely let you know if I see any of your work or work you've discovered/manipulated into mosaics, whatever, & published without the attribution for which you have asked. I've already let two Spanish photographers know. I realize there's not much they can do but they can at least pay the little sh*t a visit.

Hey Susan
I hope you feel better soon... it sucks feeling unwell... i know!!... and poor Lil Petal too!!!!

I commend you on the attribution issue.. although I think it is losing bloglandia at least...

Feel better soon dear Susan.. xx Julie

Get better soon. I should really check out the Inspector Montalbanos.

You know I try to attribute when I can, but sometimes the images I find are copies of copies etc.

I have been looking at a lot of s lovely blogs recently - but what I don't get it that they just use photos found elsewhere of people's lovely homes, stylings etc. I don't get it.

Oh, I'm sorry to hear you aren't feeling well.
I hope it has passed by now and you are feeling better already.
On the attribution thing, I GET YOU! I am as frustrated when I see that happening, as you are, and I have sent bloggers emails about it.

I'm so glad you left me this msg, Angie. Grrrr.
