A sweet selection of old school happy swing tracks !
BAck to the roots !
My great grand father was an Edinburgh surgeon and kept his fingers nimble by doing needle point - these are some of his works. Was this where the mosaics gene came from? I have just bought my first needlepoint kit so that I can have ‘mosaics’ with me on the go.
These are lovely! I hope you have a fun time with your needlepoint.
A comparison of two tumblr blogs: creepshots and okcgoldmine.
—okcgoldmine: re-posts photos of men; photos were taken with men’s permission and posted personally by the men on a public web page
—creepshots: posts photos of women taken without the women’s knowledge or consent.
—okcgoldmine: has no ads
—creepshots: has ads
—okcgoldmine: uses tags that come directly from the words written by the men and posted by them at okcupid. Examples: jack of all trades, devil’s advocate, men’s rights, everything but rap.
—creepshots: typical tags are: upskirt, phat, booty, hungryass, boobs.
—okcgoldmine: sometimes adds humorous text, such as “Boy you must be the sun because you need to stay 93 million miles away from me.” But most posts have text written by the men themselves and posted by them on a public web page. (x)
—creepshots: adds text such as "I caught these two mamacitas suntanning with their asses out while enjoying a Carribean cruise in Dec. 2009. They were totally asleep and unaware of my camera work. They may possibly be the hottest daughter-mother pair I’ve ever seen in one shot." I would have to agree. I don’t think I can easily choose who has the better ass. Very nice creep work.—creepshots editor (x)
—okcgoldmine: taken down by tumblr in May, 2013
—creepshots: just fine with tumblr. jfc it’s all in fun u need to get a sense of humor.
reblogging because 7 months later creepshots on tumblr is still up and okcgoldmine is still down. summary:
poking fun at men: TUMBLR TAKES DOWN YOUR BLOG
posting photos of women without their consent and calling them sluts: THAT’S OK WITH TUMBLR
I’ve tried messaging them before about creepshots, and they never even bothered to respond with an email stating that they aren’t violating the TOS after saying they’d look into it.
They literally just ignored it.
Shame on you, tumblr.

From an old family history sent to me by my great-aunt. Also from the annals: Flora Hazel Markham, b. 1891 in New Brunswick, Canada. She died in 1906 at the age of 15: “She was pushed down by some boys at school and had snow put down her dress and soon after developed the pneumonia that caused her death.”
