1,000 Foods To Eat Before You Die Front Cover

The ultimate gift for the food lover. In the same way that 1,000 Places to See Before You Die reinvented the travel book, 1,000 Foods to Eat Before You Die is a joyous, informative, dazzling, mouthwatering life list of the world’s best food. 

1,000 Foods fully delivers on the promise of its title, selecting from the best cuisines around the world (French, Italian, Chinese, of course, but also Senegalese, Lebanese, Mongolian, Peruvian, and many more)-the tastes, ingredients, dishes, and restaurants that every reader should experience and dream about, whether it's dinner at Chicago's Alinea or the perfect empanada.

Mimi Sheraton is highly opinionated, and has a gift for supporting her recommendations with smart, sensuous descriptions-you can almost taste what she's tasted. You'll want to eat your way through the book (after searching first for what you have already tried, and comparing notes). Then, following the romance, the practical: where to taste the dish or find the ingredient, and where to go for the best recipes, websites included.

Anthony Bourdain, author, host and food enthusiast had this to say about 1,000 Foods To Eat Before You Die, "Mimi Sheraton was one of the few critics or writers on food who, had she expressed displeasure with me, would have caused me to consider quitting the business. As a chef, I feared and respected her. As a writer and observer and enthusiast-as someone who travels largely on his stomach-I can tell you that what Mimi doesn't know is hardly worth knowing. This fat, comprehensive guide to the 1,000 foods to eat before dying is just that: 1,000 foods you NEED to try, urgently. Read ... and seek."

Rock Out with Our Favorite Pet Musicians

Some pets just have rhythm. Some have soul. Some are just plain loud. Rock out with these incredible pet musicians and get in the groove!

Nora the Piano Cat™ is a top tier animal musician, world-renowned for her piano stylings. In fact, she's appeared in a CatCerto with Lithuanian conductor  Mindaugas Piecaitis! Mindaugas Piecaitis composed and directed the Catcerto for Nora The Piano Cat™ and orchestra, where Nora, the soloist, was brought in via video.  

Megan is more of an amateur enthusiast, with an incredible style and flair. The tiny white pooch rides up to her piano in style via a colorful baby stroller. Megan's coach/owner/trainer is very involved in her career, as you'll hear in the video. 

These Boston Terriers were born to sing the blues. Or "Happy Birthday," as the case may be in this video. These pups harmonize to entertain thousands of YouTube viewers!

Animal talent is not limited to tickling the ivories or singing. Mocha, a toy poodle from Japan, strums away with her owner on the electric guitar in this video.

Lastly in this collection of our very favorite pet musicians, meet George the Cat. Don't call him a groupie. He is the real thing: a legitimate muse, and when he collaborates with his owner, singer/songwriter Ayleen O'Hanlon, the chemistry is undeniable. 

Keep the music and the good times coming, and send us your pet photos and favorite videos! Connect with us on Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, and by leaving comments on our blog. 

Meet Artist Valerie McKeehan, Contributor to the 2015 Today is Going To Be A Great Day Calendar

2015 Today is Going to Be A Great Day Valerie McKeehanIn 2012, Valerie McKeehan was a newlywed, creating a "McKeehan's Cafe" sign for her own kitchen when she discovered how much she loved creating chalk art and started an Etsy shop called Lily & Val. The small operation quickly turned into a big one and as the business grew, Valerie figured out how to turn these fleeting works of art into lasting pieces--by turning them into digital prints.

Today, you can find Lily & Val products in various forms, from greeting cards to phone cases including our 2015 Today Is Going to Be A Great Day calendar.

In a wonderful Huffington Post article, Valerie answered some questions about what her design process is and what inspires her the most. Those questions are included below: 

Q. How would you describe your background and what has led you to this point in your career?

For as long as I can remember I've loved to create. Although I never pursued any formal drawing or art training, creativity was a big part of my childhood and always encouraged. I graduated from college with a degree in marketing and pursued a career in advertising. I owned a small agency with my now husband and when we got married I created a piece of chalk art for our kitchen on a whim. After hearing such a great response to this little sign, I decided to start Lily & Val as a hobby.

Q. How would you describe your creative process?

I think of ideas for new pieces all the time and record them in my phone. When I set out to draw something new, I'll choose the subject matter and roughly sketch out design concepts in pencil. Sometimes the quote in my mind will automatically dictate the design. I can literally envision the drawn words and illustrations. To most, my sketchbook looks like a bunch of scribbles, but it helps me solidify the design in my mind. I don't like to get too detailed in my sketch since elements and details arise during the process of putting chalk to slate. I never really know how the dustiness will shape the pieces, but it is this variety that produces drawings with character. Once I am happy with the chalk drawing, I photograph the artwork and bring it into Photoshop for minor editing and adding color. I use this digital file to create the products in my shop.

Q. What is your favourite medium to work in?

I love the simplicity of chalk art. It is literally dust on a surface, but watching a beautiful design emerge from that dust is rewarding.

Valerie McKeehan's beautiful chalk art is available in many forms, including, of course, our 2015 Today Is Going To Be A Great Day calendar. Also, wedding decorations, iPhone cases, printsmugs, and paper goods!

Downton Abbey, Season 5 Premiere is TONIGHT, January 4th

Hurrah! Tonight at 9PM EST, the Season 5 premiere of Downton Abbey will finally air in the US. We can already smell the aroma of English tea and high drama wafting this way. 

The season description from the PBS site doesn't give away any hints as to what's in store, but it does lay the groundwork for a riveting season with the stars we love and some new faces:

Downton Abbey US PremiereNew loves, new secrets, new Downton Abbey!

Downton Abbey returns for an epic fifth season of intimately interlaced stories centered on an English country estate—a deliciously entertaining formula that has made it the highest-rated drama in PBS history. Downton Abbey, Season 5, airs Sundays, January 4 - March 1, 2015 on MASTERPIECE on PBS.

Downton Abbey Season 5 features returning stars Maggie Smith, Hugh Bonneville, Michelle Dockery, Elizabeth McGovern, Jim Carter, Laura Carmichael, Joanne Froggatt, Allen Leech, Robert James-Collier, Penelope Wilton, Phyllis Logan, Lily James, Brendan Coyle, Lesley Nicol, Sophie McShera, Samantha Bond, Ed Speleers, Kevin Doyle, Raquel Cassidy, David Robb, Tom Cullen, Julian Ovenden, Daisy Lewis, Douglas Reith, Jeremy Swift, and Andrew Scarborough.

This acclaimed ensemble is joined by guest stars Harriet Walter (Atonement), reprising her role as Lady Shackleton, and Peter Egan (Death at a Funeral), who returns as Lord Flintshire, together with completely new characters played by Richard E. Grant (Girls), Anna Chancellor (The Hour), and Rade Sherbedgia (24).

We've been counting down the months until Downton Abbey here on our blog for half a year! Take a walk with us through memory lane as US fans sit on the edge of their seats today in anticipation of the new season.

What Are You Wearing on New Year’s Eve?

Don't settle for a boring outfit or just the same old thing on New Year's Eve. We’ve been flipping through our fashion calendar, our shoes calendar, and our jewelry calendar to find some fabulous fashion inspiration for saying goodbye to 2014, and hello to 2015.

Here are 5 tips and ideas for making your New Year’s Eve outfit one for the ages:

1. Be a Human Disco Ball

New Year’s is one of the only occasions where it’s totally acceptable to go way over the top with shimmering, shining dresses and skirts adorned with glitter, sequins and gems for days. If you’ve been dying to rock this look, tonight is your night.

2015 Shoes Calendar2. The Little Black Dress with Fantastic Shoes

You can never go wrong with the little black cocktail dress: classic, easy, gorgeous. Make things a little more exciting for the occasion by busting out the shoes you never wear. You know—the ones with mile high heels, flashy colors or sassy design.

3. Leather and Velvet, Oh My

This is the perfect opportunity to wear unconventional fabrics that you might normally shy away from. Got a cute leather blazer or dress? How about some leather pants or a leather skirt? Word to the wise: keep it to one unconventional fabric. Leather and velvet combined might be a little much.

4. Go for the Gold (or Silver)

In keeping with the human disco ball advice, metallic colors are the way to go tonight. They scream celebration, and will be lovely accents to your glass of Champagne. We aren’t just talking about gold or silver jewelry either—gold heels, a silver dress, or a gold blouse are all acceptable.

5. Go Big or Go Home

Well, don’t go home (at least not before midnight). But go big—with your hair, jewelry, pumps—whatever you want! Just balance it out by going big with 1-2 elements of your outfit, instead of getting crazy with the whole thing.

Anya - This week's Page-A-Day Cat Photo Contest Winner

Anya loves her family and is not partial to any one member. She loves each one of us equally, sharing her time around. Her best trick is to jump on your shoulder from the ground or someplace high. She loves playing "Moccer" which is soccer with her stuffed mouse. She's a great catch and will jump a foot off the ground to catch "Mousie".

What to Do with the Last Hours of 2014 Vacation

Last hours of vacationIt's Sunday afternoon and for many Americans, holiday vacation is coming to a close (though this year, quite a few people are off until well into January—huzzah to you if January 5th is your next day in the office!).

Don't fall victim to the all-too-common scenario in which you get a little bored and antsy in the last hours of vacation and log in to your work email to get a few things done before you get back to the office. Don't do it! Squeeze every ounce of relaxation out of your time away.

What to do with the last precious hours of down time before the daily grind gets into full swing next week? We've got some suggestions:

  1. Spend quality time with your pets: Take a long walk with your dog, or put on an old movie while you rack up some nice tummy-scratch hours with your cat. Try out the new treats or toys that Santa Paws left in your pet's stocking. 
     
  2. Play games or do some puzzles: Have some fun with words or numbers—pick up a crossword or Sudoku puzzle, or tease your brain with a brain teaser. 
     
  3. Find some inspiration: There's inspiration everywhere, from your backyard garden to the spiritual sermons and songs of the season to the culinary masterpieces you can create in your kitchen. Let the inspiration flow through you to recharge your batteries.
     
  4. Enjoy classic artwork (or make some of your own): Make a trip to your local museum or browse the web to find fine art that speaks to you. If you're really feeling artsy, take out a pen and paper or dust off your paints and bring your own masterpieces to life. 
     
  5. Read a great book: This is the time to finish the book you started in September, or start a new one and log some serious reading hours. Find one you can read in a single sitting, and one that you can come back to again and again to escape to a far away land. 
     
  6. Get folding with origami and paper crafts: If you're a hands-on creative person, try paper crafts this season. We've got some terrific paper craft projects up on our blog, or you can go a more traditional route with simple and fun origami paper folding. 
     
  7. Head to your local watering hole: Sometimes you've got to get out, and the local pub or bar is a great destination to hang out with friends over drinks. You can play trivia, play cards, or just enjoy a great microbrew. 
     
  8. Take a quick trip: Explore the country or the world, and live spontaneously! Book a quick trip to a place you've never been before and discover the local treasures. 
     
  9. Go shopping: Especially if you cashed in on gift cards during the holidays, get up, get dressed, and get to the mall! You can find fashionable shoes, hot jewelry, a gorgeous new purse, and some great after-Christmas deals!
     
  10. Choose your 2015 calendar: Surprise! This blog post was actually sort of a quiz, like your middle-school guidance counselor asking what you would do for fun if you didn't have to work. Which end-of-vacation activity did you relate to most? Match your top choices with your ideal 2015 calendar. Browse the options below, or check out all the options in our store.  

The 13th Day of Christmas

On the twelfth day of Christmas,
Your friends and family gave to you:
Twelve Roses Blushing,
Eleven Books a Reading,
Ten Socks a Knitting,
Nine Watches Ticking,
Eight Candles Melting,
Seven DVDs a Playing,
Six Gift Certificates a Spending,
Five Cal-en-daaaars!
Four Blue Pillows,
Three Shining Gems,
Two Little Puppies,
And an iPad in a Shade of Green.

Christmas day, for many families, is a total binge on presents, delicious food, and all-around togetherness. The day after Christmas is a different story. There's a lot of clean-up—a lot of dirty dishes, a lot of wrapping paper to recycle, and maybe even some complicated and technical gift assembly (Barbie Dreamhouse, anyone?). You may even have a new 2015 Page-A-Day calendar to register to access your digital calendar in the new year. If so, check out our brilliant tutorials from Abby Stokes for great tips!

So, start the dishwasher, take the trash out, write your thank you notes... but only if you feel like it! Whatever you decide to do today, don't forget that there's still time to get a 2015 calendar before January 1st for yourself or someone you love. If you're riding high on holiday gift cards after Christmas, make a trip to your local bookstore or online store to pick up your calendar, or check out our shop at pageaday.com to find your perfect calendar at a great price. 

Happy 13th Day of Christmas! Let the celebration continue. 

Greet Loved Ones With Enthusiasm!

You may be running into lots of family and friends tomorrow on Christmas Day! Take advice on this #WoofWednesday, from the new book Really Important Stuff My Dog Has Taught Me, and greet your loved ones with a true enthusiasm. This book is tender, funny, warm, and utterly inspiring. 

If you love dogs, and we're guessing you do, check out the hashtag #DogsKnowBest on Twitter and tap into a world of cute, cool canines and perfectly imperfect pups.  

Greet with Enthusiasm

Check out the book: Really Important Stuff My Dog Has Taught Me.

Pairing an irresistible photograph with just the right sentiment, every page delivers a life lesson that appeals as much to our hearts as our minds.

It reminds us again and again of what’s important, like love: “Be there when others need you.”

Compassion: “Even the smallest act of kindness matters.”

Perseverance: “Keep going until you find your way home.”

A healthy sense of self: “Make it squeak until someone pays attention.”

Living in the present moment: “Scratch where it itches, when it itches.”

And that happiness is a choice: “Leap higher than you have to.”

A Festivus for the Rest of Us

The Festivus for the Rest of Us“Many Christmases ago, I went to buy a doll for my son. I reached for the last one they had, but so did another man. As I rained blows upon him, I realized there had to be another way. A new holiday was born: a Festivus for the rest of us!”

That speech is the dramatic origin of the non-denominational holiday that takes place on December 23 (that’s today!) according to Frank Costanza, George’s dad on the hit television show Seinfeld.

While the Festivus episode, which aired in 1997, spread word of Festivus across the country, the holiday actually dates back to the 1960s. Dan O’Keefe, a writer for Seinfeld, was inspired to include Festivus in an episode’s script because his dad had made up the holiday three decades earlier.

So what exactly is Festivus? Well, it includes a dinner, an Airing of Grievances in which family and friends basically sit around and tell each other what they did that bothered each other in the past year! Finally, there’s the Feats of Strength, wherein the head of the household can challenge any guest present for Festivus celebrations to a wrestling match. While there aren’t really any culinary or decorative traditions attached to Festivus, the holiday does replace the traditional Christmas tree with a barren aluminum pole.

If you’re just dying to know more about Festivus, Dan O’Keefe actually wrote a book called The Real Festivus. Yes, you can learn all about the holiday’s mysterious origins, its authentic traditions, and real life grievances that have been aired!

If you think you'd like to incorporate Festivus into your annual celebrations, you can order an aluminum pole with a base stand to stick in your corner instead of or beside your tree. No joke! The website festivuspoles.com really does exist, along with dozens of Facebook fan sites, Instagram feeds, and memes for the holiday. The image in this post is from FestivusWeb.com.

We’re guessing most of the people who observe Festivus annually have a pretty good sense of humor—they also might enjoy the 308 Jokes + 57 Puns Page-A-Day calendar, or Uncle John's Bathroom Reader TV Trivia Challenge Page-A-Day calendar. as a present for Festivus (or, for that matter, for Christmas or New Year's)! It's too late to order for Christmas delivery from our site, but you can find our calendars in stock at many, many bookstores.  

So, Happy Festivus... and good luck if you happen to be the unlucky one chosen for the Feats of Strength!

Meet Alex: Our Page-a-Day® Cat of the Week!

Alex - This week's Page-A-Day Cat Photo Contest Winner

We adopted Alex on Valentine's Day in 2009 from the Berkshire Humane Society in Pittsfield, Massachusetts after suddenly losing our beloved orange tiger cat, Sneaky Pie (adopted from the same shelter eight years earlier). Alex was at the shelter because he had been abandoned in an apartment. The woman at the shelter recommended him because of his dog-like personality--very much like Sneaky. We brought him home and he immediately made himself at home--he wasn't timid or shy at all. He loves playing with his rattle mice and catnip toys. His favorite winter time activity is watching the birds and squirrels at the feeder. He is a never ending source of entertainment for us.
