Good Monday morning, friends! It’s a gloomy, stormy one here. Yesterday the temps reached 70° (21° C) but by next weekend the high temps will only be around freezing. I keep saying that spring is on it’s way, but it seems to be playing games with us. Ah well … soon enough I’ll be complaining about the heat – never satisfied, are we? Well, since Joyful has declared today to be “Sandwich Day”, let’s go grab a sandwich and something to drink, and find some things to start the week off with a smile, shall we?
And a bacon-topped donut for the bacon lovers to share!
The title of a recent newsletter from Atlas Obscura read, “How to Save Collard Greens from Disappearing”. Say WHAT??? Why on earth would anybody want to save collard greens from disappearing??? Let ‘em go, I say! Never has there been a more disgusting excuse for a vegetable! The article began …
“IN THE AMERICAN SOUTH, MANY people have fond memories of a pot of collard greens simmering on the stove for hours, seasoned with a ham hock and stirred by a parent or grandparent.”
And now we know what’s wrong with some people! And that’s all I’m gonna say about that!
And now, I’ve got ‘toons, ‘toons, and still more ‘toons!
There’s almost nothing like a few cute pictures, the kind that make you say, “Awwwwwww” to bring a smile …
I haven’t posted ‘Amazing Facts’ for a while now, so I went to the “Amazing Fact Generator” over at the Mental Floss website and thought you might enjoy some of what I found there:
- Stalin plotted to kill actor John Wayne.
- Bela Lugosi was buried in full Dracula costume—cape and all.
- Goldfish can distinguish the music of one composer from another.
- Sharks have existed longer than trees.
- When Disneyland was opened in 1955, “Tomorrowland” was designed to look like a year in the distant future: 1986.
- In 1964 a pre-fame David Bowie was interviewed on the BBC program Tonight at age 17 as the founder of The Society For The Prevention of Cruelty to Long-Haired Men.
- Mark Twain was born in 1835, a year in which Halley’s comet was visible from Earth. In 1909, he said, “I came in with Halley’s comet…and I expect to go out with it.” When he died on April 21, 1910, the comet was again visible in the night sky.
And last, but never least, if it’s Jolly Monday, there must be a cute critter video!
I hope you all have a good week ahead and please remember to share those gorgeous smiles with someone who doesn’t have his/her own! Love ‘n hugs from Filosofa, Jolly, and Joyful!
