Dennys Art Sanctuary: Animation: Cute Valentines Day Doodle From Google


GoogleValBoard_01


Dennys Art Sanctuary: Animation: Cute Valentines Day Doodle From Google: From Denny: This is a delightful, animated, funny video about what women really want. Hint: It isn't about the type of gifts, what brand name they are or how much they cost. It also addresses relationship equality and how materialism isn't always the answer to life's dilemmas - even with the help of Google searches!

Dennys Art Sanctuary: Coolest Guitar Duet: Four Hand Exchange: From Denny: This is the best guitar video I've seen in a long time. It's from the Brazilian Music Institute. As the performance opens it sure looks funny as the man puts his hands over the shoulder of the woman holding the guitar. Then you see four hands playing at once - and the music is as wonderful as the image is funny! Makes you wonder how long it took to practice the piece and not get all tangled up doing it.

The Social Poets: President's Day Flash Mob: Seniors Take To The Streets, Sing Patriotic Songs




The Social Poets: President's Day Flash Mob: Seniors Take To The Streets, Sing Patriotic Songs: From Denny: You know it isn't cool any more when the old guys adopt the younger generation's culture like flash mobs. :)

Seriously, this was a group of seniors from the World War 2 generation that remember growing up in the tough economic times of the Great Depression.

They also remember how they used to pick up their spirits - and those around them - by singing in groups their favorite patriotic songs on holidays like President's Day.

The Social Poets: Read About Homeless California Reporter on Chime.in, Living Out Of Her Car


10 facts about me


The Social Poets: Read About Homeless California Reporter on Chime.in, Living Out Of Her Car: From Denny: Social sites are a great way to while away some hours of boredom, learn something new, and, most of all, connect. You never know who you might meet.

Well, here's a shocker. Either this person is great at laying on the BS to pull on our heart strings as some people might speculate or is someone in deep need, reaching out into the thin air, hoping someone will listen. How about a lot of us - especially fellow reporters and bloggers - take the time to investigate this story and see what we can do to help?

Homelessness has devastated the middle class, the current unemployment and bad economy sending half into low income, outright poverty or, as in this woman's case, homelessness. What is annoying about Congress and President Obama is how little they choose to do for the unemployed and homeless.

57 Best Of Clever Romantic Valentines Day Photos

mukha's valentine's day card








From Denny:  Check out the cutest and funniest pet photos for Valentine's Day.

Then it's on to artistic creative photographers trying to figure out how to capture the theme of the day.  It's tough to come up with something new and different for such an overdone theme as hearts. I especially like the ones of men walking across great distances in the cold weather clutching flowers for their ladies.

There are crafters and artists with creative turns on the theme, with links to their blogs.  Not to be missed are the cupcake, cake and coffee food photos.  One is a plate of rose petals with a fork.

Be sure to click on the photos to go to the photographers' flickr pages and blogs where they discuss their art process or the situation for the photo.

I sure had fun going through 2700 photos to do this post because so many made me laugh and others were food for inspiration.  Happy Valentine's Day!

The Soul Calendar: Awesome Space Station Videos of Glowing Earth Aurora




The Soul Calendar: Awesome Space Station Videos of Glowing Earth Aurora: From Denny: Check out the glowing rim of the Earth as seen from the Space Station. The sun was highly active exploding out a huge dose of electrically charged particles that spectacularly lit up our Earth's upper atmosphere.

These photos were assembled into a video from NASA's Gateway to Astronaut Photography of Earth and were taken during the period of 25 - 30 January 2012. Usually, the photos are taken at the speed of one frame per three seconds instead of one frame per second as done here. The result is a more leisurely video because it is a bit slower than the true speed of the space station. It gives you that dreamy "you are here" feeling as you watch it.

The Social Poets: Groundhog Day Louisiana Style: New Orleans T-Boy, Baton Rouge Boudreaux


ocnutria01096.jpg


The Social Poets: Groundhog Day Louisiana Style: New Orleans T-Boy, Baton Rouge Boudreaux: From Denny: Groundhog Day contenders are popping up all over America. Groundhogs are not native to Louisiana (because it's too hot) but we didn't allow a little factoid like that to stop us. Louisiana likes it's holidays so what effort was it to rustle up another creative idea than to draft the swamp rat nutria into the Groundhog Day?

Up in the northern part of America it's considered really bad news when a groundhog sees its shadow, foretelling another miserable six weeks of winter. But here in Louisiana it means a spring that is shorter than usual.

A short spring means summer's grueling heat and drippy humidity will return sooner than desired. So, you see, burrow-loving animals can come in handy to predict the weather both in the chilly North and the hottie Deep South.

Dennys Funny Quotes: Fight Racism: Pass On This Funny Joke




Dennys Funny Quotes: Fight Racism: Pass On This Funny Joke: From Denny: Thanks to Niles Calder on Google+ for posting this good one. Be sure to visit his page and include him in your circle!

OK, so the journalist in me just had to edit the misspellings and grammatical errors... :) That's what you get when you are related to a beloved aunt who taught English literature and insisted upon all in its proper place.

Why stop there? Since there are differences between American and British English that confuse Americans I corrected the word choices and language flow. So, if you are British, Australian or Indian be sure to read the original on Calder's page - just so you don't end up confused.

Apparently, this joke goes back as far as 1998 and the days of the email sharing of favorite urban legends - according to Snopes.

And yet this garbage attitude continues to persist. Just check out my post over at The Social Poets: Prayer Curse: Republicans Call For Obama Death for a recent example. Until people grow up will things change for the better.

Do what you can to make the world a better place. When you protect the civil rights of others, you also protect your own. Helping others helps you too. Can Life get any better than that? It's that simple.

Dennys Funny Quotes: Funny Video: Little Girl Pranks Her Dad to Perfection




Dennys Funny Quotes: Funny Video: Little Girl Pranks Her Dad to Perfection: From Denny: This little four-year-old is a kid after my own heart. OK, I used to do fun things like this to exasperate my parents too. None of which was well met either. :) I love precocious kids.

This little girl says at the beginning of the video - or sounds like, "I'm just gonna jump out and scare him."

The little girl goes to hide in the kitchen closet while the father and mother are unaware. The parents are busy looking for his car keys. This little girl is patiently waiting for Her Big Moment when the father opens the closet to look in there too. She got him good.

It sure makes you wonder who the Old Soul is in the house. Looks like she is working over time to get the parents to catch up to her. Get your laugh on!

The Soul Calendar: Space: Strange Different Neighborhood Just Outside Our Solar System


IBEX (Interstellar Boundary Explorer) satellite


The Soul Calendar: Space: Strange Different Neighborhood Just Outside Our Solar System: From Denny: Just when you think "the grass is greener on the other side," as the proverb goes, well, in our celestial neighborhood, it just might be true. This week scientists are reporting Life is a lot different and downright strange just next door beyond our solar system.

What they find odd is the amount of oxygen present. Oxygen is actually dancing around like an all night party at a hip bar inside that solar system.
