Pink Lollipop Tie

Having fun designing ties lately creating this funky pink and red swirl lollipop design. You can change the background color. Red, white and black is super cool!

Singing in the Rain Pressie

There is a really cute baby shower gift idea at Today's Best at Zazzle. It is a "Singing in the Rain" onesie with three umbrellas with pastel colors and silhouette patterns.



Aussie slang in the keywords:

umbrella - brelly, parasol, winter brolly, brolly, brella, brellie

onesie - pressy, pressie

Robodog Dog t-shirt

Man's best friend, from the future: a cute robot dog. Another cute addition to Zazzle's Today's Best feature. Science fiction is a favorite theme in the linkage here, so had to add this doggy tee.

Pretty Pink Flowers

If anyone knows what kind of flowers these are, I would appreciate the tip. I'm not sure. I can guess, but I'd probably be wrong. So I'll just say that they are some pretty pink flowers in a pot at the Motel 6 in Springfield, Oregon near the I-5. They were back by the pool at the Motel 6 at I-9 off exit 195A.

Sun Dews

Here is a macro of some sun dew plants that remind me of the fireworks I just posted. This particular image is backlit, but the basic red shape surrounded by blue balls of dew is showcased.

Happy 4th!

A lovely 4th of July fireworks pic I saw on flickr this morning! The red and blue balls created by these fireworks remind me of some tiny plants called sun dews that I used to find along the banks of pond I lived near when I was a child.

Change Doesn't Have To Be Bad

Been wandering about the backroads of a few states the last few days, which means I've been using the iPod because radio reception so spotty out here in the West in the vast empty spaces. So, I just now read that Sarah Palin resigned.



Online I wandered and found this post Sarah Palin Resigns at www.feministing.com, where one of the readers said: "One would think that as a seasoned politician, she would have been more polished in her remarks. She sounded illiterate and dysfunctional."

Would Palin have looked more functional if she had intejected a few hundred "uh"s for David Letterman to have counted?



Would she have looked more literate if she'd read the nine minute speech from a telepromter?



Why does Palin sound stupid for being a fairly capable public speaker, and Obama gets labeled as a great speaker? Bill O'Reilly thinks Obama is one of the best. Come on now ... even Obama knows he needs a telepromter (or he wouldn't rely on it so heavily).

This bumper sticker is high in popularity today at Zazzle...



Probably because there are still people who prefer politicians that are capable of acting without consulting a pollster first. Though quitting may not be the wisest political move for Sarah Palin, change doesn't have to be bad for the State of Alaska. Alaska managed for 48 years without her. (In case you're wondering how I got that figure, you can Google Alaska's statehood date and subtract the 3 years for the approximate amount of time she served in office.) People that support Palin in her future endeavors will inherently recognize that the best politicians are easily and readily replaced and won't likely care what pollsters and pundits think.
