Doll Parts...

When KormaCurry & I were in Barcelona galavanting around Las Ramblas, we found these tiny plastic case doll vignettes in an empty shop window. #1 dolls seem to be wearing some sort of thigh-high white doll boots.

Look closely at #2. Is the Virgin Mary scolding the tiny dolls or perhaps giving them a small thread of wisdom?

Simplicity is extremely important for happiness. Having few desires, feeling satisfied with what you have, is very vital: satisfaction with just enough food, clothing, and shelter to protect yourself from the elements. And finally, there is an intense delight in abandoning faulty states of mind and in cultivating helpful ones in meditation.”

DIY - Dead Disk Mobile

Tired of your burn program going awerye and destroying disk after perfectly good disk? Tired of trying to find uses for those "dead" disks ie. coasters, frisbees, serving plates?

Reuse, Recycle and make your own customized "Dead Disk" Mobile. All you need is string, a thumbtack and dead disks.

They look particularly fantastic with a nice ambient light source shining on them.

Crazy fool? You decide...

BEND, Oregon (AP) -- Last weekend, Kent Couch settled down in his lawn chair with some snacks -- and a parachute. Attached to his lawn chair were 105 large helium balloons.

Love Power.

It has been 8 years since KormaCurry & I tied the knot. Feels like yesterday, standing on the cliffs of San Juan Island, on a beautiful, sunny day, staring into the eyes of my soul brother...The whales were out that day, perhaps the K Pod. We had to nicely ask a family having a picnic to move over, as they were sitting on the epic spot where the ceremony was to take place. They kindly moved over about 20 feet but still showed up in our photos. Kinda funny.

Jellyfish Lipstick...

The mucus produced by jellyfish is rich in a compound that is vital to some cosmetics and drugs. The finding could help combat rising numbers of some jellyfish species.
