If You Don’t Plan to Die
I found this interesting blog about Death. It is called The Family Plot Blog: Funeral Planning For Those Who Don’t Plan to Die. Be sure to check out the Death Cartoons Category!
Death by Chocolate
When I found the website Death By Chocolate, I thought, isn’t this wonderful! If there is one way I would like to exit this world, it would be on my terms with a chunk of dark chocolate in my mouth. Alas, it is not possible to die from too much of this food product, though it is likely I could eat enough of it to feel like I wanted to die.
Post-It Notes – a 3 inch square yellow pad of paper with a low-tack adhesive strip on the back, these ‘reminders’ have several computer equivalents. One of these is a nice little program by Zhorn Software called Stickies. Easy to use, these stickies can contain text or images. You can even draw on an image sticky with this program.
I’m watching Brier Curling on TV this week. If you want to see how the Chickens explain the game, go to this post called Curling Revisited.
Canada has introduced a new competitive Winter Sport called Yukigassen. Originating in Japan 23 years ago, Yukigassen, translated, means Snow Battle. It is a team sport, with official rules and regulations designed to ensure a safe event for players, teams, and spectators. As in many sports, a sphere is involved. In this case it is a snowball with a diameter of between 2.5-2.75”. Each team has a few walls to hide behind. The photo to the right gives a very rough idea about a snow battle – this one pitting The Wild Child and me against the three grandsons. I found it hard to believe that those little boys with their skinny little arms could deliver a snow ball with such stinging velocity!
That Morning Cup of Coffee
I’m not a coffee drinker, which in our family makes me a minority of 1. About 63% of Canadians drink coffee daily. In truth, I do drink coffee, but not in a form that allows the normal flavor of coffee to invade my mouth. I am a Timmies Ice Capp drinker – small size, made with milk please. What is your favourite way of ingesting caffeine?
