taken shamelessly from a LJ that I read

new subject headings from the Library of Congress:


Boating with Cats anyone? Elk Watching? Photography of the Blind?

[note, photography *of* the blind. There is a subject heading for Photography *by* the visually impaired...]

fantastic. I love libraries.

Boating with Dogs was another heading...

Oh, I done that. Mia didn't want to know, but Bob swaggered about the boat very nautically. We had little lifejackets for them ... they never fell in, but the jackets had very useful handles on top, which meant we could carry a dog about in each hand like a pair of briefcases if we felt so inclined. Very handy.

Weidenfeld & Nicolson have published a book called Dancing with Cats - must get hold of a copy. Would love to know what it's classified as.

I wouldn't trust Minsky on a boat. He'd probably work out how to steer it!
