Ponderisms! Now that’s something fun!

halloween

And what can be more fun than dressing up your dog for Halloween?

Am I the only one in the whole wide world that doesn’t know what a “ponderism” is?  Now that I think about it, I can’t be.  I went to the dictionary and looked for an official definition and came up empty handed!

Well, maybe one of my fearless readers will suggest a definition of “ponderism” but in the meantime, here are some great examples!

  • How important does a person have to be before they are considered assassinated instead of just murdered?
  • Why are you IN a movie, but you’re ON TV?
  • If money doesn’t grow on trees then why do banks have branches?
  • Since bread is square, then why is sandwich meat round?
  • Do Lipton Tea employees take coffee breaks?
  • Why doesn’t glue stick to the bottle?
  • What disease did cured ham actually have?
  • How is it that we put man on the moon before we figured out it would be a good idea to put wheels on luggage?
  • If corn oil is made from corn, and vegetable oil is made from vegetables, what is baby oil made from?
  • If people evolved from apes, why are there still apes?
  • What hair color do they put on the driver’s licenses of bald men?

It’s all about fun… Extreme Sheepherding, Border Collies and Corgis!

yoristamp3When I think of fun, I think really cute dog paw car magnets from Fun Car Tattoos.  Though… this week I went to the Wine Country Corgi party and that was total fun.  I counted 52 of those little devil dogs, including my dog Yori – the cutest one of the bunch!   A good time was had by all – and some of the corgis got to try out their hand at sheepherding.

But even my corgi can’t hold a candle to these border collies.  Check out this video! You won’t believe that it’s dogs and sheep!

Carbon Footprint Car Magnets!

greenfoot2

Fun Car Tattoos got even more fun!  I wanted to find something more “green” to sell on my website and I just found it… Show the World You Care Car Magnets!

Carbon Footprint magnets from Fun Car Tattoos are just $6 each and are approximately 4″ x 8″.  Not only would they look great on your car, but they bring attention to the impact that our lifestyles have on the environment.

Let’s all start right now to help the environment.  Here are Seven Simple Steps for Living Green!

1.  Get a Greenfoot magnet for your car… The symbol of environmental awareness. Displaying a Greenfoot car magnet on your vehicle lets others know that you’ve made the decision to live green.

2.  OUTSMART YOUR APPLIANCES. If you must use them, then run your dishwasher and your laundry machine only when you have a full load.

3.  Grow something green … whether you have an acre of land or just a windowsill, you can grow something… plant a garden, or plant a tree. Plants give off oxygen and that helps us all. Indoors use a counter or a window for herb gardens. (Get ideas at vermontnaturecreations.com )

4.  Recycle in the kitchen, it’s simple…separate your paper, plastics, and cans. By recycling you will be producing less waste in our landfills.

5.  Elect to use a coffee mug for your brew instead of disposable cups, (some coffee shops will give discounts when you bring your own mug).

6.  Eliminate excessive energy use…turn off lights when you are not in the room. In the winter turn down your thermostat at night. In warm weather open a window at night or use a fan, instead of using your AC.

7.  Now spread the word, awareness is key. Together we will make a difference and change our world!

Though… if you want to learn a little bit about the history of Gasparilla, keep reading!

History of Gasparilla

Gasparilla boats in Tampa bay The history and name of this Tampa tradition traces back to the legendary antics of Jose Gaspar. Gaspar reportedly patrolled the waters of West Florida during the late 18th and early 19th centuries. A society columnist with the Tampa Tribune is credited with creating a May festival in 1904 that first incorporated a pirate-inspired theme. The original members of Ye Mystic Krewe of Gasparilla stormed Tampa on horseback before becoming seaworthy in 1911. The success of those early invasions prompted planners to move the celebration to its winter time slot and encouraged the creation of additional events.

Peace Symbol Car Magnets!

peacejpgHurray!  We have a new president!  Awesome!!!!  And… maybe there is some hope for Peace.  Wouldn’t that be great!?!?!  I, for one, am hoping that Peace is in the air!

Do you know the history of the Peace Symbol?  If not, read on!

The now universal symbol for peace is actually a symbolic representation of the semaphore flag alphabet. It is a combination of two different letters “N” and “D.” The original group to use the symbol as their logo was the Campaign for Nuclear Disarmament (CND). The BBC adds that the circle around the symbol is a representation of the world. The peace sign made its way into the psychedelic United States of the sixties and the rest is history. Unfortunately, the world is still armed.
