9 of the best internet pics when you just need to laugh.

So things have been a little busy at work for me lately and I really haven't had the creative energy to put together any really great posts.  Or even any mediocre posts.  I totally should have documented my husband and I putting together a gazebo in the backyard.  Although this was one project we made it through without… Continue reading 9 of the best internet pics when you just need to laugh.

So. . .I just saw the Facebook video of the animal testing being done at Texas A&M laboratories (came out in December, so maybe you've already seen it).  I hate this feeling.  The overwhelming sadness and crippling helpless feeling.  The problem is so big, what can I do about it?  Something.  Anything.  I'm not going… Continue reading Animal testing.

Corpses and spirits and sex. . .oh my.

Are you as curious as I would be at that title?  Oh boy!  Don't worry, those things don't actually go together.  At least. . .they shouldn't.  Anyways, these are all topics of books written by one of my favorite authors, Mary Roach.  Her style of writing mixes scientific study and humor (two things that you don't often think… Continue reading Corpses and spirits and sex. . .oh my.
