Good Morning! We got a bit of the white stuff around here this weekend! I was fortunate enough to have to work during it.
Yes, it is indeed a sense of sarcasm that you detect in the sound of my voice.
Anyway, wasn’t much of a snow as is evidenced by my little friend in our back yard. But, surprisingly…or not so surprisingly, depending on how you look at it… there were a whole crap load of slide offs on the highway. It is amazing to me how some people tend to loose brain cells in an inverse-ratio as snow flakes falling to the ground. The less snow, the more brain cells seem to disappear.
Thanks to Lynn for this one:
It’s got everything you ever wanted to know about snow. More specifically, it’s all about snow crystals.
There are dozens of close-up snow crystal pictures. You’ll be in awe of how beautiful they are. And there are both natural and designer versions shown.
But that’s not all. The site also explains how snow crystals form. And it deals with some common questions about snow crystals. For example, are no two snowflakes really alike?
If the pictures inspire you to grab your camera, don’t worry. There is even a section on taking your own snow crystal pictures. And it tells you how to make your own snow crystals.
Sent in by a LOT of you guys…
IF OUR GOVERNMENT REALLY WANTS TO KEEP CLASSIFIED DOCUMENTS SECRET, THEY SHOULD BE KEPT IN THE SAME PLACE THAT OBAMA’S COLLEGE TRANSCRIPTS AND BIRTH CERTIFICATE ARE KEPT.
My Dad’s friend immediately bought a plane ticket and flew 2600 miles home to discover that the house looked exactly the way they left it.
During a conference, I was pleasantly surprised to be seated next to a very handsome man. We flirted casually through dinner, then grew restless as the dignitaries gave speeches.
During one particularly long-winded lecture, my new friend drew a # sign on a cocktail napkin. Excited, I wrote down my phone number.
Looking startled for a moment, he flipped the napkin over and drew another # sign, this time adding an X to the upper-left-hand corner.
“This is a disaster,” the husband answered. I don’t know where I’m going to find another woman of her caliber.”
Here’s an idea worth strongly considering:
I’d be curious to hear what some of you campers have to say about this. I think Google is a good company doing some great things on line….but some of the stuff I saw on this video made me think twice about how I feel…..
I love this one…so much in the spirit of the season.
What Crappy Christmas Gift Are You?http://www.blogthings.com/whatcrappychristmasgiftareyouquiz/
My own little Izzy playing coy with Santa. Don’t let her fool you old man, she’s picking your pocket while you aren’t paying attention….and her minions are outside, right now, stripping down your sleigh and making reindeer jerky while she stays inside and keeps you busy!
I’ve got to add this to my Christmas list. I wonder if I still have time…
A little boy returned from Sunday school with a new perspective on the Christmas story. He had learned all about the Wise Men from the East who brought gifts to the Baby Jesus. He was so excited he could hardly wait to tell his parents.
As soon as he arrived home, he immediately began, “I learned all about the very first Christmas in Sunday school today! There wasn’t a Santa Claus way back then, so these three skinny guys on camels had to deliver all the toys!
“And Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer with his nose so bright wasn’t there yet, so they had to have this big spotlight in the sky to find their way around!”
