S day is saved for Star Wars, of course. But not just another Wookieepedia link.

Have another look at the brilliance the artists at Lego have given us this year.

We’ve enjoyed these Lego Star Wars titles for a while now and this new one is ‘wizard-cool’. It’s another super quick post, but it’s also Saturday. Go turn off the computer. 

(The original video went private, so here’s something else…)

Games God Google and Green

“She prays?”

These are the G Labels for the posts from my blog. Games, God, Google and Green. Good Grief!

I started looking back at the posts and this one which was tagged “green” is more about our yard and the things we did in it.

The post labeled, God, is funny. It contains the psuedo transcript of my daughter’s first viewing of Star Wars: The Phantom Menace. It really encapsulates one of the reasons I started this blog in the first place and I want to share it with you again:

J is six and today we watched Star Wars Episode I. Here are J’s comments.

Never tell a Jedi, “You’re under arrest.”

Who was that white lady? (Watching the pod race.)

What kind of fabric are their clothes made of? (Anakin and his mother’s on Tatooine.) Information about the costumes. And another article.

I’d bet the fabric would be something synthetic since it’s a desert planet, but here you could go for a linen or bamboo fabric.

Yoda: ” I sense much fear in you.” to Anakin.
J: “Yoda’s a good senser.”

Queen Amidala: “I pray you’ll bring sanity back to the Senate.”
J: “She prays? She believes in God.”

Yoda: “May the Force be with you.”
J: “And also with you. (giggle) Church.” (That’s Daddy’s joke, now she knows the reference first hand.)

Queen Amidala: “Jar Jar, I need your help.”
J: “Oh! Gungans have fine armies!!!” (J puts it all together and remembers what Jar Jar said earlier in the film.)

Fabulous Fabric

Now how could I pass up a day about F without mentioning my wife’s fabric. She sell sewing stuff by the seashore, or at least I feel a little tongue-tied when I talk about it. Her shop is SomeArtFabric.com and I’ve been the background guy for a few years now. I’ve created a back-end for her entire website using FileMaker, another F, but it’s also truly worth mentioning.

When we travel to events like International Quilt Festival/Cincinnati this week, we meet all sorts of people who just rave over her fabric.

It’s great quilt shop quality stuff. 100% cotton, but apparently so many little quilt shops are closing in the US, the quilting public is hungry to see some wild fabrics. Mrs. SF is great with color and she buys for the shop the fabrics that speak to her, so it’s really worked for her.
