Turtles Hatching and Making there way to the Sea


Aren't these little fellas just the cutest?  This is not something everyone will see in their lifetimes in person, so thought I would share this video here of turtle hatching out of the eggs in the sand and making their way to the sea.

This was shared on Facebook and from the original post:
"Karen Player Futrell with Kelly Crater Futrell.
July 12 at 10:29pmThis happened right at our beach house tonight at Isle of Palms! I was totally amazed! They all made it to the ocean. This is the video my sister-in-law captured!"

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?

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.
