Isn’t blue cute??

so boo had picked up this sweater a while ago for blue. same time she picked up the coat you’ve seen her wear. Well, we wandered over to Morgan’s to say ‘hi’ and have a beer, and though blue might appreciate just an extra touch of warmth.

sooooooo cute.

I have to say that the world can often be a surprisingly awesome place.

I’ve had it happen to me personally any number of times and I’ve always found it inspiring.
Friends act and I’m in another state hoping my dad is doing well (he was).
Friends take action and the cliff I’ve fallen off seems to have some decent padding at the bottom of the abyss. And again, actions of my friends make the fall less disastrous than it could have been for me.

Found this today – it’s something along that lines… but it’s strangers helping out people they don’t know.

Hope it makes you smile.


a Tuesday night…

Top Gear on the tube – always amazes me the joy they put into their show. Jeremy calls BMW out on their crap-tacular X6 SUV. Of course, when BBC is paying your bills you might have the resources to bring the truth to the forefront of the dialog in a clear, understandable way.

If you enjoy a dry British thrashing, you should enjoy the above video. At least stay with it until he heads off road with it. Hi-larious!!

Have I mentioned how cute Blue is?

ok. was gonna get all personal and shit, decided not to.


Made it out east the other weekend…

Boo & I had a nice meander to Wendy’s, and though we missed the joy that is the Azelea fest, we did have a nice time with Wendy and Dani – see –

This was taken at Flaming Amy’s, the burrito joint we visited last year with Cam & family.

Somewhere in the near past we also made it out to Carrie & Nate’s neighbor Eleanor’s birthday gathering –

very enjoyable. Even Cameron and their pup enjoyed!

TED … cause I like them.

Did you hear? Flights over northern Europe disrupted. Volcanic ash (which has previously caused big jetliners to have complete engine shutdowns) wreaking havoc! Havoc I say!! (my point of concern was that Formula 1 circus was going to be stuck in China instead of getting back to their home bases in Europe before the next rounds of racing starts)

We chatted ever so fleetingly during the crackle and roar of Morgan & Beth’s fire pit, so aflame not in celebration of all things Icelandic nor Olympic, but cause Gus turned 10!!

From Gus' Birthday Party

Planes not flying, big particulates in the clouds, previous planes ‘gliding’ from 35K feet to about 15K feet before the engines restarted (I also read this post – Ash versus airplane last week) … all very something. The news spread concerns over business taking a beating (along with airlines), but all I could ponder was “Hey – great time for Cisco to kick it with their video conference services! (have you seen the commercial with Juno actress? or this one, even – this one has Ellen Page)

Well, at least one group of peeps decided to make use of their stranded-ness – TEDxVolcano peeps.

Just one more reason why the TED folks make me hopeful.

Now if only they could join in and help This Machine Kill Cancer, cause I’d really really like that. A lot.

{as U2 sings about not finding what they’re looking for – if you keep looking that’s good, right?)
