colonels,

If only we could see the endless string of consequences that result from our smallest actions. But we can’t know better until knowing better is useless

colonel-sassacres asked:

I was wondering how you would break the carrot curse or the onion curse, you never really made that apparent, thanks momma Bree.

That’s because they’re not really meant to be broken, sweet pea. They’re meant to run their course.

The Carrot Curse lasts until the pieces of carrot completely rot away. It could take a week, it could take months, depending on where you buried it.

As for the Onion Banishing spell, when you banish someone, you generally want them out of your life forever, hence why you pitch the onion as far away from yourself and your home as possible. It’s a pretty emphatic “get out and STAY out.”

If you’re concerned about casting spells with that kind of longevity, you might want to look into other methods to achieve your magical goal.

The National Archives recently embarked upon a large scale digitization project, focused on photographic and moving image records related to World War I and World War II. 

Recently digitized and now available in our online catalog is a fascinating series of World War I photographs, the American Unofficial Collection of World War I Photographs, 1917-1918.

This series contains photographs obtained from the U.S. Army Signal Corps, Federal and State government agencies, as well as private sources, such as the American Red Cross and the Central News and Photo Service. The photos depict the unity of the nation and how overwhelming the war effort was, including pictures of public gatherings, peace demonstrations, parades, and activities of libraries, hospitals and first aid stations.

I’m honestly just so ashamed that there is not more Colonel Sassacre fanart

Colonel Sassacre is hands down the most important, well-developed character in the entire web comic, and this is how we repay him???

Unforgivable.

This evening starting at 6pm the 3rd Annual #AACPLGreatGive opens, we hope with a bang. As we ask for your support, on our Facebook page, we’ll profile some of our customers sharing what the library means to them. We’re calling it #HumansOfTheLibrary in honor of the inspiring Humans of New York Facebook Page.

Pictured is James E. Wyatt (Colonel, US Army, Retired), the founder of The Nannie Helen Burroughs Project, which is having a program on May 9 at the Martin Luther King Library in Washington, DC to celebrate her contributions and establishing her legacy.

“So here I am today at the library in Annapolis extending an expanding my thoughts and my knowledge about this wonderful person (Nannie Helen Burroughs) who seems to be lost to history. I’m rather embarrassed to say that at this stage of my life I use the library even more than when I was in college.”

Colonel Meow passed away yesterday evening. I will post more about the details when I’ve had a few days to grieve. Thank you so much for your understanding, Minions. Your love and support has meant the world to us both. -Slave Beast

Dear Colonel Meow, 


You are without question the most remarkable, impressive, and regal living creature I have ever had the pleasure of knowing. Despite your intimidating facade, you were an incredibly kind and loving feline that brought millions of humans great joy. Your legacy will never be forgotten Colonel, and we will miss you dearly. See you in space my dear friend.

Lub,
BUB

Sense and Sensibility (1995)

Colonel Brandon was now as happy as all those who best loved him believed he deserved to be; - in Marianne he was consoled for every past affliction; - her regard and her society restored his mind to animation, and his spirits to cheerfulness; and that Marianne found her own happiness in forming his, was equally the persuasion and delight of each observing friend. Marianne could never love by halves; and her whole heart became, in time, as much devoted to her husband, as it had once been to Willoughby.

BUB’s very good pal Colonel Meow is in the hospital recovering from surgery. BUB is using all her magic powers to send him healing energy. Please join BUB in wishing him well so that he can get better and get back to world domination.

I knew a lady very like your sister — the same impulsive sweetness of temper — who was forced into, as you put it, a better acquaintance with the world. The result was only ruination and despair. Do not desire it, Miss Dashwood.
