Sticks and stones

I really like the simplicity of these charming creations by Sharon Nowlan, from Nova Scotia.

Cats, dogs, humans... and the knee

I'll start with a knee update: it's hurting on and off. Yesterday it wasn't too bad, because I changed the dressing and made it a bit less tight than before, so I could bend my knee somewhat. Couldn't sleep last night for no particular reason and today the knee is unhappy. C'est la vie, it will heal eventually...

    These are not my knees. I wish my left knee looked like the one in the picture...

Now let's have a laugh with the cats and dogs:

Nice trees

Some of these trees are calm, some seem nervous and one of them looks terribly stubborn!


It's hurting. A lot! I can't put any weight on my left leg. Peter is cooking lunch (cooking is not his thing). I'll let you know how it turned out. Smells nice...

Having a laugh with Google

These are the top questions people asked Google, by US state. If this is not true, at least it's very, very funny!

Birds with a difference

I don't really get the circles around the birds, but Daniel Taylor, the artist, must have a good reason for them... They're his paintings, after all. I like them a lot.

If there were computer programs for everything...

View sent us this funny exchange between a desperate woman and tech support. Thanks, View.

Dear Tech Support,

’Last year I upgraded from Boyfriend 5.0 to Husband 1.0 and noticed a distinct slowdown in overall system performance, particularly in the flower and jewelry applications, which operated flawlessly under Boyfriend 5.0.

In addition, Husband 1.0 uninstalled many other valuable programs, such as: Romance 9.5 and Personal Attention 6.5, and then installed undesirable programs such as: NBA 5.0, NFL 3.0 and Golf Clubs 4.1.

Conversation 8.0 no longer runs, and House cleaning 2.6 simply crashes the system. Please note that I have tried running Nagging 5.3 to fix these problems, but to no avail.

What can I do?


Dear Desperate,

"First keep in mind, Boyfriend 5.0 is an Entertainment Package, while Husband 1.0 is an Operating System. Please enter command: I thought you loved me.html and try to download Tears 6.2 and do not forget to install the Guilt 3.0 update. If that application works as designed, Husband 1.0 should then automatically run the applications Jewelry 2.0 and Flowers 3.5.

However, remember, overuse of the above application can cause Husband 1.0 to default to Grumpy Silence 2.5, Happy Hour 7.0 or Beer 6.1. Please note that Beer 6.1 is a very bad program that will download the Farting and Snoring Loudly Beta. 

Whatever you do, DO NOT, under any circumstances, install Mother-In-Law 1.0 (it runs a virus in the background that will eventually seize control of all your system resources.)

In addition, please, do not attempt to re-install the Boyfriend 5.0 program. These are unsupported applications and will crash Husband 1.0.

In summary, Husband 1.0 is a great program, but it does have limited memory and cannot learn new applications quickly. You might consider buying additional software to improve memory and performance. We recommend: Cooking 3.0 and Hot Lingerie 7.7.

Good Luck!”

Photos of wildlife photographers

Dare I say these photographers were spotted in their natural habitat? Hahaha! These animals are endearingly curious, love them!

Nature produces exquisite works of art

These mushrooms are either very weird or incredibly beautiful, but they all look almost unreal.
