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.

Animation: Cute Valentines Day Doodle From Google

GoogleValBoard_01




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!

Visual Insights: 57 Best Of Clever Romantic Valentines Day Photos: 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!

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 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.

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.

Romancing The Chocolate: Cookies: Unusual Tabasco Chocolate Cherry


The Bing cherry owes its development to the Ch...


Romancing The Chocolate: Cookies: Unusual Tabasco Chocolate Cherry: From Denny: Enjoy a little pepper heat with your chocolate? Then these unusual cookies from the Tabasco hot sauce company are for you.

Chocolate and cherries are another winning combination enjoyed during the Valentine's Day celebration season. Tabasco just decided to kick it up a notch.

This recipe calls for making huge cookies that are shaped into football ovals and then decorated with icing to resemble the pigskin laces. Instead you can shape them into hearts, piping icing with a heart inside a heart for decoration.
