INSPIRED!!

With everything that has been happening in the past week w/ the storms/floods, and seeing so many people all across Central Texas and the state of Texas dealing w/ destruction and loss, I understand it. My honey Ted and I dealt w/ the destruction and loss of pretty much all our belongings due to the Hurricane Katrina flooding 10 years ago. You have to pick up, clean up and find a way to move on to something different and new and rebuild.  The grass can be green again on the other side of the dirty destruction and loss. It takes strength, determination and the help and support of others is HUGE! I also find music is a powerful tool. Whether it's a good time or a bad time, a song can find it's way to fit during that situation that either helps get you through or enjoy it even more.

I think Kelly Clarkson's new song 'Invincible' has a great message to it that can be used with many types of times. Check it out!

A Full Circle Rainbow

This is tremendously rare.

Some folks at the top of an observation tower over Niagara Falls shot some tremendous footage of a full-circle rainbow.

It's an amazing thing to see!

When they realized what they were looking at here at Niagara Falls, their jaws dropped. It's a full circle rainbow! You’ll want to see it, too.(h/t to southlakemotors/YouTube)

Leave Those S'mores Alone!

Okay, now the government has gone too far!

ChooseMyPlate.gov has published the recipe for a healthy alternative to S'mores, that melted-chocolate-and-marshmallow-on-graham-cracker concoction that's so messy and wonderful, especially in the summer.

Ready? Instead of chocolate, strawberries. Instead of marshmallow, yogurt.

And instead of graham crackers, a couple of pieces of cardboard.

Okay, that last part's not real, but it might as well be.

Nothing wrong with strawberries and yogurt - they make a nice parfait.

But they pale in comparison to melty, drippy, messy chocolate and marshmallow.

Mind your own beeswax, ChooseMyPlate.gov!

Got an Extra $100 Million Hanging Around?

Neverland, the California ranch owned by Michael Jackson, is on the market.

For just $100 million dollars, you can grab up the 2700-acre property in Los Olivos, just north of Santa Barbara.

There are 22 structures in all, including the train station that's modeled after the one on the Disney properties, plus a swimming pool, tennis court, basketball court and a 50-seat theater.

It's not called Neverland anymore - it's now Sycamore Valley Ranch - and the amusement park rides Jackson used to keep there are gone.

The listing agents say they're pre-screening buyers to keep out Jackson fans. They don't want someone to buy it up and turn it into a Graceland-style attraction.

Just in case that's what you had in mind.

Beyonce Meets Duck Tales

Sometimes, mash-ups of songs are a little silly.

This is one of them - the video of Beyonce's "Single Ladies" mashed up with the theme song from Duck Tales.

You know what?

It sort of works. Check it out, just for the fun of it!

Are You Ready for Manhattanhenge?

Manhattanhenge happens a couple of times each year.

It's the name for the days on which the setting sun lines up perfectly with Manhattan's gridded streets to create some awesome pictures.

Manhattanhenge happens tonight and tomorrow night.

NBC New York reports the best places to witness it are cross streets like 14th, 23rd, 34th, 42nd and 57th streets.

They recommend that you go as far east as you can in Manhattan without losing sight of New Jersey.

Of course, that only works if you're in New York.

So here's what it looked like a few years ago. And I'm sure you can find some decent video and shots on YouTube after tonight and tomorrow, asuming the weather cooperates.

"I Thought This Was Supposed To Be a Man's Movie"

Mad Max: Fury Road was screened at the Cannes Film Festival, and afterwards, some of the stars and the crew appeared in a press conference.

A reporter from Toronto stood up and asked Tom Hardy, the actor who played Mad Max, if he questioned why there were so many women in the movie.

"I thought this was supposed to be a man's movie," said the reporter.

Tom's reaction is classic. Short, sweet, to the point.

Check it out.

Happy Friday Eve....

Happy Friday Eve! For some it's Happy because you woke up in your bed, started your coffee maker to have coffee in your favorite mug,  took a shower and got ready in your bathroom w/ a change of clean clothes to get into. This was not the case for many in the Central Texas area today and many days  coming thanks to the storms/flooding.  In the San Marcos/ Wimberley area alone there are over 1,400 homes w/ significant damage and at least 60 homes that floated off their foundations. Over 1,000 people are displaced and have no home to go to right now, or have one they have to do some MAJOR CLEANING & FIXING UP.  

If your Friday eve started in your home, then do something nice to help those who don't have that right now, so they can get closer to that type of Happy. You take it forgranted until you don't have it.  You 'll feel good you helped. 
Click the photo to find out many ways you can help whether it's donating $ or your time.
It's all very much Appreciated!  YOU ROCK! HR

Jon Stewart, King of Analogies

The Daily Show covers all the hot topics of the day - with a trademark wit that will still be around (one hopes!) when Jon Stewart retires.

In the meantime, we can still enjoy the spin Jon puts on the news.

Like this story about the recent court ruling that the National Security Agency overstepped the Patriot Act in its phone data surveillance program.

Jon has the perfect analogy for the ruling.

I don't want to spoil the surprise, so check it out.

You know your surveillance program has gone too far when you cannot get permission from the Patriot Act. That's like getting thrown out of an Olive Garden for eating too many bread sticks." -- Jon Stewart? Watch the episode: http://on.cc.com/1J5b0mq

Ladybugs Everywhere!

It's the end of the school year, and kids are getting a little buggy.

At Chopticon High School in Morganza, Maryland, a few high school seniors took that bugginess to the extreme.

They pulled off a senior prank that unleashed 72,000 ladybugs on the high school.

I'm sorry, that made me laugh.

It didn't make the school's administration laugh at all. In fact, one of the seniors involved wasn't allowed to walk the stage at graduation this week.

Watch the story, and weigh in on it. Is this such a heinous thing that it should stop a prankster from graduating from high school?
