The Carolina Chocolate Drops make their Feel Good Friday debut here at the squirrel’s nest.
It takes them a few seconds to get tuned up, but once they do, it’s top notch and quite possibly the bee’s knees.
Tap your feet and enjoy a little Salty Dog.

I ran across this clip from the Indian science fiction film clip that is ASTOUNDING!!!!!
I’ve seen two spellings for the name of the flick – Enthiran and Endhiran. The Indian to English translation for both those words must be Awesome!
If you can watch this with a straight face, count me impressed. I grinned, giggled and guffawed while watching.

We’re dealing with some wintery weather here in Tennessee in recent days. Where I’m located, there really wasn’t enough snow to be a factor, but other areas were inundated. It reminded me of something I saw a couple of weeks ago online.
So what do you do with a baseball stadium during the winter months?
The folks in Cleveland figured it out. It’s called Cleveland Snow Days.
They installed an innertube luge run, an ice skating rink and a snowball tossing area along with some other nifty stuff during the weeks before and after the holidays.
Even cooler is that the baseball dugouts were warm-up areas for the chilly visitors. How awesome would that be to hang out in the dugout? Pretty awesome if you ask me.
It brought people back to the downtown area during a time when foot traffic and visitors are at a minimum. Very smart.
And it looks like it would be fun.
So until the first pitch of spring, here’s to Cleveland and their winter baseball wonderland.

Rant begins here > So I’m reading that Bill O’Reilly doesn’t understand why the tides roll in and out. Ask any sixth-grader. It’s the moon’s gravitational pull, or is “science” still a dirty word?
Science, why that’s for the birds. Birds that are falling out of the sky that is. Wait, isn’t that a sign of some foreboding apocalypse? Yikes. The gods, they must be angry. Wait, Angry Birds. Isn’t that a game on the Intertubes? Ahh, it’s all coming around again. Just like the Mayan Calendar. Wait, is this all leading up to 2012? Wait, that was a movie and movies are made by liberals and that means they believe in science. My mind is exploding!!!!111!!~
