This article was floating around last year. It looks like a fun task. I suppose it wouldn’t be hard to make.
The above link doesn’t have much to do with LGBT history, exactly, but it’s got the theme, and was a tear jerker. You’ve been warned. Grab the kleenex before watching the video.
I’m a little late to the party this time, but it’s LGBT history month. Normally, I’d be taking out books from the library and making a theme month, but the library still isn’t really open, so I’m off routine.
At the bottom of this post is a link showing how Nabisco is celebrating with the Oreo.
I hope to get a few more posts on this theme this month. I’ll see how it goes.
The above linked article talks about keeping spiders in the house. It even discusses naming them. I know that a lot of people are scared of spiders, so I’m not posting any photos.
At my house, the cats enjoy the spiders, so there isn’t much time to name them before they get to be a tasty snack for a feline. All part of the food chain, I guess.
The billboards in the above linked article are all unusual. There are some really interesting ones on here. Below are some of my favorites.
They all are thinking outside the box of the sign.
Earlier this year, there were several incidents about white people calling the police on their black neighbors for no reason. One of the incidents was between a woman walking her dog and a bird watcher. The bird watcher managed to record the interaction and the dog watcher was charged.
The bird watcher has written a comic about it. The above linked articles show the story about the comic and the link to Amazon so you can get a digital copy of the comic itself. I have not read it yet, but I’d love to know what others think.
I loved the above linked article. The home owner kept getting alerts that someone was in his driveway, so he had to do something about it. Grab your chalk and do a little research! Build a racetrack.
I am glad the article went the way it did. There are just too many grumpy neighbors out there. I was impressed when other neighbors were using the racetrack. I loved how they showed the child improving over time. Stay within the lines, kiddo.
I do hope that the child’s mom does something nice for the racetrack owner. His driveway seems to be infested by neighbors. It doesn’t really put him out much, other than a little noise and security camera alerts. I hope they have fun.
According to the above linked article, these beauties actually exist. The description in the article tells about adding some sweet to your morning. Cotton candy or blue raspberry? That does not sound delicious. It does sound very sweet, especially with the suggested addition of whipped cream.
If I was required to add color to my breakfast, I think I’d rather choose green eggs and ham. Maybe I’m being too critical because I’m not big on sweet breakfasts? Still, I don’t think this one will be a big seller.
