Feel Good Friday – Evolve

Happy Friday everyone!

I know this is a commercial for Gatorade, but I can’t find a video version of the song without it, plus I still dig watching Muhammad Ali strut and do his shuffle.

The song is by Kermit Quinn.

Loyal Squirrel Defends Friend From Crows

Sometimes nature is heartbreaking.

A squirrel was run over and killed by a vehicle. Its loyal friend keeps scavenger crows from attacking its corpse. This just makes me choke up a little bit.

If the video above doesn’t work, here’s a link to its page on Youtube.

There are some links to more of the squirrel’s protective nature in this post about a mother squirrel protecting her baby from a dog.

Nuttier Than A Squirrel Turd


I spotted this on Saturday in Paris, Tennessee and I think it applies to me.

Betty White Does Portland

Since my visit, I’ve always felt Portland, Oregon was one cool city that would be a great place to live and now think I have a new favorite publication – The Portland Mercury.

The Mercury held a poll allowing readers to pick the cover art for an edition.

What did the citizens of the fair city of Portland come up with to grace their Mercury?

How about Betty White in a metal bikini wielding a flaming chainsaw while riding on the back of a centaur with John Ritter at its head.

Here’s the rendition of that as compiled by artist Andrew Zubko.

I know you are as impressed as I am.

I heart this greatly!

Feel Good Friday — Bread and Butter

I’ve had this song stuck in my head for about five days now.

I thought I would share for Feel Good Friday.

The Newbeats with “Bread and Butter.” I’m loving the lead singer’s blonde fro and those skinny ties.

Tech Tattoos and Geek Ink

Tattoos aren’t just for bikers anymore.

Now geek coders are just as likely to be showing off ink as a truck driver or sailor.

Idyll Ramblings has some tech tattoos for you to peruse.

Here are a few examples.

From the coding world, it’s endless love and the end of hate.

How about the blue screen of death.

There are also some gaming tats and ink for design geeks too at Idyll Ramblings.

Not a Single Lady

Beyonce’s song “All The Single Ladies” has created several youtube sensations.

Here’s one more.

This poor little boy had his dreams of being a single lady dashed by his father.
