Happy Friday! To the links from others! Many thanks to everyone who reads/sends in links/makes this little corner of the interweb a fun place.

From Julie: prosthetic limbs through the ages! Also from Julie: the earliest film yet which features a character from Charles Dickens has been found. Also, a headline I’m just going to repeat here: “A Bronze Age gold ring found in a Hampshire field is declared as treasure by a coroner.” (?)

From Cassandra: Ziggy Stardust, immortalized here on Earth. Hooray!

From Scott: Hidden Treasure celebrates the 175th birthday of the National Library of Medicine. Ooooh, ahhh.

From Chuck via Cassandra: The Oreo cookie is 100 years old! (The brand, that is, not a specific Oreo cookie. That would be kind of disgusting.)

From Zazoo: There’s going to be another Muppets movie! Yay! (Arms flailing wildly)

Have a spiffy weekend, everyone. See you Monday.

RE: Ziggy and the Muppets

I think the Muppets should perform Ziggy Stardust and the Spiders from Mars.

Five Years = Miss Piggy could be the woman who went off her head and hit some tiny children from the song Five Years!

Soul Love = Miss Piggy and Kermie

Starman = Pigs in Space

It Aint Easy = I can see Robin the Frog mournfully and bitter-sweetly singing this

Lady Stardust = Gonzo

I could go on but I'll spare ye...
