Get serious about getting social – TTN Yearbook 2011 – Cover Story

A couple of month ago, the folks from Travel & Tourism News Middle East approached me to discuss an article about social media in the tourism, travel, and hospitality industries for the TTN 2011 Yearbook. The yearbook finally came out today and is being distributed with the TTN February edition. Here’s a preview of my cover story: Get serious about getting social - TTN Yearbook 2011 - Cover Story

License Plates Gone Wild...

You really can find anything on the internet... including strange and stupid things that morons have chosen for their personalized license plates... I couldn't decide if I was entertained or horrified by most of these... WHAT THE EFF ARE YOU PEOPLE THINKING? (photos from happy place.com) So apparently people are driving around proud they are old pedophiles or waiting for the day you turn 18, of course that is when they have free time from shaking babies and embracing slavery... And I have no comment ...

Inspiration: A Taste For Balance…

“Your hand opens and closes, opens and closes. If it were always a fist or always stretched open, you would be paralyzed. Your deepest presence is in every small contracting and expanding, the two as beautifully balanced and coordinated as birds’ wings.” ― Rumi Flavor: (1)Distinctive taste; savor (2) A distinctive yet intangible quality felt to be characteristic of a given thing: “What matters in literature . . . is surely the idiosyncratic, the individual, the flavor or color of a particular human ...

Day Number Two

What happened to "Day Number One"?,  I hear you cry. Well...the long and the short of it is that after my departure on Saturday to come to Germany,  I have spent a lot of time in airports and on airplanes but have had a hell of a time getting on the Internet.  Luckily (or not ...depending on your point of view) I can draw and manipulate my pictures off line enough to do some cartoons for you. So....just to catch you up ...

Take an Adventure Trip

Image by dachalan via Flickr Have you ever dreamed of being Indiana Jones? Traveling to out of the way places and finding that lost treasure? Well they frown on carrying bullwhips but you can be a modern day version. Hundreds of people a year take part in Volunteer Archeological digs all around the world. Seems there is more to finding ancient cities and artifacts than going in a cave and dodging lethal traps just to find the golden statue sitting on ...

Weird & Wacky: The flower that eats worms!

To the untrained eye, it’s a harmless plant. It looks pretty and innocent with its dainty lilac flowers. But appearances are deceiving. The philcoxia minensis is a carnivorous plant with an appetite for worms. Unlike the Venus Fly Trap and pitcher plants, this plant takes the subtle approach when it kills its prey. The attack isn’t even visible to the naked eye, as it takes place underground, beneath the soil. The rare Philcoxia minensis, which is unique to Brazil,uses its underground ...

The process is as simple as putting the bulbs in water along with some stones to hold ...

I Has Art!...

My dear friend Lisa Brendal has taken up painting in the past few months and seems to be on a mission to put a large number of ideas on canvas. With no real formal training Lisa has taken to creative art like a kid in a candy shop…and she is now the BFF of her local art supply shop. As many of you know Lisa’s blog “The Widow Lady” is a repository experiences and expressions of loss, grief, coping and growing ...

Now That Is Just Playing Dirty

Now That Is Just Playing Dirty

April 4, 2011 Mother Nature: GAME ON, Mother! Couldn't take a little criticism pertaining to your "less than appropriate" dump of snow on my budded and flowered flora, huh? Seemingly, you and I are just not meant to be friendly this year.  My first note to you was friendly enough, I thought. I simply asked you to encourage Spring to be a little SPRING-like. I will admit that my second letter was a tad firmer but I was hopeful that the pitiful picture of my ...

On Those Tolkien Prototypes

I remember as a kid reading “Mother Goose” and fantasizing about weird critters and why that woman had so many kids that lived in a shoe.  My Mom gave me art books for entertainment in the gravel road isolation of rural Mississippi, where AM radio was unreliable. I didn’t realize my favorite painting “Starry Night” was by one of the greatest painters of all time, Vincent Van Gogh. "The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug" Therefore, I had an idea of “elf,” “dragon,” ...

Stupid Sock Creatures

A few weeks ago, my husband and I were at our local Barnes and Noble rummaging through the clearance books.  One book caught my eye.  It was Stupid Sock Creatures by John Murphy.  I was intrigued. I bought the book.  At a couple of bucks, why not?  Besides being an utterly hilarious book, Murphy provides concise and clean directions on how to create your own stupid sock creature. Now, I’m not the best at following sewing directions, but I managed to eke out my own sock creature.  See him ...

1 comment to Glenn Beck: The Wisconsin Unions = The Muslim Brotherhood = World Domination

  • Alternative Mainstream, Alternative Universe, Alternative Reality. Very entertaining.Glenn Beck, you say? I REMEMBER him from somewhere…in the past..the distant past..the far far distant past…Unions do indeed have an agenda–they want to avoid becoming third world style slaves to robber barons who run giant corporations and wear “Right Wing” on their BVDs. They want a decent living wage and some kind of assured secure retirement. Those who are already rich can never understand the position of those who are not. Still, the Ree-Pug-lickins continue to try and convince the rest of the world they are mostly “Chrees-Chun”– which is a total paranoid fantasy on their part because most of them don’t have an inkling of what “Christian” is. If they did, the would treat people a little more respectfully. http://thelimingview.blogspot.com/
