A pool large enough to put a small sailboat in. This is really almost too much for the eyes to comprehend. This article at Hipster Travel Guide will show you the color blue like you have never seen it before. I can hear the suitcases clinking shut now.


Oh good grief! There are real children and families starving to death, lands engulfed in famine and drought and this is what people contribute their money too!

Don’t worry if the aliens are out there they won’t want to speak to us because they will think we are the biggest losers ever.

Safety Idea

For those of you who walk the dog or yourself at night. For joggers or just general loafers who are out and about enjoying the cool air at night this is a great safety idea.

Cheap, lightweight, easy to carry. A light on one end and a knife-like stabbing utensil on the other end.  And how handy, just leave it stuck in the ground outside the door and pick it up on your way out.

A gift from God

Free trees!

Have a look at this fabulous site that I found. I have no idea how the prices compare to local nurseries but I love the idea of shopping from home and not being out in this heat plus helping someone who needs it. I am going to give it a try as soon as I can make up my mind about what I want.

Fantastic Find

for cats that is. And cat owners. Palermo from the blog, Project! featured this fabulous cat door cutout. This is the best idea ever! I hope she does’t mind me sharing, I just love it so much. She was freshly pressed today in case you didn’t catch it.

Need a hammock in a hurry?

Then Tim Anderson who writes a column for Make Magazine has just the sheet for you. Yes that’s what I said, sheet. All you need is a sheet and some rope. This snuggle type hammock is my favorite kind so I will be giving this a try. Just not right this minute. I feel a nap coming on. So while I nap you can check out his instructions.
