Cat Trying on Yarn Wigs


I always say everyone needs a hobby.  This is an amusing one where the cat's owner creates yarn "wigs" on the outside of box where a hole has been cut through for the cat's face to fit through and photograph it.

Thunderstruck...as you have never heard before



Croation duo Luka Sulic and Stjepan Hauser comprise 2 Cellos and their rendition of AC/DC's "Thunderstruck" is true to to the original song but with the unique spin by using the Cellos in place of an electric guitar and Angus Young's vocal in a harmonious marriage of hard rock and classical music.

HOT FOOD AND BEVERAGE TRENDS FOR 2018

        This interesting infograph from The Food People indicates what the expected trends are for the year, from the reigniting of retro trends like cut glass glasses and fine china and Next Gen Mixers that can be added to alcohol or just consumed as is to fast and healthy food and more of a focus brain health and fresh air, with some places offering it as a selling point to their establishment.

There is also be be a trend of grocery stores offering more "Grocerants" that offer in-store dining in groceries and more street food markets, along with food hybrids with mixing of cultures and probably the most unique being "Acellular Agriculture" with science creating foods with bacteria and yeasts instead of a plant or animal source.

All are certainly food for thought.  Are you seeing any of the trends in your area?  Which ones do you like?

A Tornado in the Winter?

The National Weather Service/Gaylord Facebook Page posted on their Facebook page that the above that looks like a tornado is a waterspout (a vortex of water off the lake) due to the lake effect on the snow near Peshawbestown, MI. Just add sharks and you have the premise for the next "Sharknado" movie.

Reindeer Boobs


This trend is just so wrong on many levels.

At least on a fella, like the ones below, it could be a little bit funny, but also not practical as it defeat the reason for wearing a sweater, to stay warm, but also the gross out factor if you have to be sitting across a dinner table for such a sight.

The one at the bottom at least the woman has used a sock and covers herself so not quite as bad, but to be a female with a decorated exposed breast is so L'il Kim 1999 MTV VMAish,  Have seen the Mickey Mouse version of this on the internet so not original on decorating it to look like an animal either.

It is also a bit trashy and inappropriate, especially in light of the sexual harassment scandals in the news media.  It will be hard to take a woman seriously that complains about being a sex object when she is proudly putting hers on display leaving little to the imagination.  So if you feel the need to decorate your boob like a reindeer, consider the weather, consider boobs female or male could be viewed as offensive and opt for using a flesh toned fabric underneath to decorate instead.

Golden Retriever Dog Display

From a distance it is harder to tell, but once you get close up (like the picture below) you can tell only one of the dogs is real.  How long did it take you to spot the real dog in the video?
