A calming strip

As the supposed zero hour approaches, I realized I should’ve posted this earlier:

Snoopy involved in recent news events

It is now a week since it was announced that Osama Bin Laden had been killed… and during that time, the story of what had happened has changed several times. Luckily, The Royal Guardsman – the same folks who brought us the songs depicting the conflict between Snoopy and the …

Clarification on the Sweet Dreams cloth book

Talking about the Sweet Dreams, Snoopy board books, I made a reference to a cloth book called simply Sweet Dreams, based on a seeing it at this Etsy shop. At the time I was thinking “hey, that’s hopefully the only one of the cloth books which I don’t have!” (it’s …

Peanuts across the holiday season

Well, now that we’re all done celebrating Beethoven’s birthday, it’s time to start preparing for the next major holiday, which is Christmas. And walking around the streets, I see that many folks are getting very Peanutsy in their decorations. I saw one house which at first I thought “hey, there’s …

what folks are ordering

The things AAUGH Blog readers order always fascinate me (to be clear: Amazon shows me what you order after clicking through here, but don’t show me who orders things, or even which different items were part of the same order.) There are, unsurprisingly, orders for things talked about on the …
