Pop Travel: A big thanks to the talented Tara Tyler for making a number of banners for my new blog. I love this Wormhole Test Pilot. There are a few more an I can change them from time to time. Thanks Tara! They look great!

And Tara has a new book coming out July 7th titled Pop Travel! This genre is right up my ally and I'm looking forward to reading it.

Guest Bloggers: I have lots of openings for guest bloggers this summer. Want to promote your book? Or share something about the writing and publishing business? Let me know in the COMMENTS or email be at and we can set a day for you to guest blog here. 

Harryhausen's Restaurant
Follow Up: I made mention in last week's homage to Ray Haryhausen that Pixar's movie Monster Inc. named a restaurant after him. I found this pic on Google Images and had to post it. 

Follow Up part Deux: In the same post I asked a question regarding Raquel Welch and the term "Miss Fuzzy Britches." I probably could have framed the question better as it was meant to be a two-part answer. 

Miss Fuzzy Britches

Ben Ellis answered both parts: "I believe the reference to "Miss Fuzzy Britches" is "Loana the Fair One" Raquel Welch's character in One Million Years B.C. She is dubbed "Miss Fuzzy Britches" by the warden in Shawshank Redemption." Ben, I just placed a gold star sticker next to your name! 

Finally: Don’t forget to join the W4WS Blog Hop below and stop by Miss Fuzzy Britches ... errr ....  Laura and Marian’s Web sites and thanks again for your support!
