Monday Stuff On the Way To Other Stuff: Where Did February Go?

It seems like the month just started -- how can I get everything done on time?
       Making apple dumplings and cleaning up the house 
                                            (Happy Birthday, David! Love you, Davey bo) 
      Finishing up my workload -- and another appraisal appointment on Friday
      Including cleaning out the house. 
      Packing up inventory for storage
      Donating a bunch of stuff...especially quilts and fabric to the Rocky Mountain Quilt Museum.
              And more. 

Back to work.

Hopefully a lot...


Video from exploring the wreck of the H.M.S. Erebus -- one of the two ships from Franklin's Expedition to find the Northwest Passage. More about this in an upcoming post.

Be careful who you're rude to... Better yet, don't do it in the first place.

Lake Berryessa's Glory Hole has just started spilling over. Blame all that rain the Californians have been having. (Wish they'd send some our way, instead -- it's been really dry here.)

Found Money in the Street:  a blog that counts up the change and bills this person finds all year. Weird, but interesting. And the $$ totals are higher than you'd think. But I'll bet she hasn't found this much:

More than 22 million in cash found in an attic -- and grabbed by the Feds! Speaking of that:

Ten people who found a LOT of money -- and returned it because 'it wasn't theirs.' Wow.  (From Listverse)

El Castillo, one of the primary pyramids at Chichen Itza, not only is one pyramid -- it's three. Built one inside each other...on top of a cenote.
     I'm pretty sure this is the "bird" pyramid that we visited once. If you clap your hands at the base of the pyramid, what sounds very much like a bird chirp comes out at the top!

Ten things seen by humans only ONCE. Really.  (From Listverse)

Eleven signs your kids are becoming Austrian.  I spent a summer there back in college days, and have fond memories...

Underwater Photographer of the Year winners are out for 2017.  Insanely cool photos.

Movie and tv quotes so weird they were almost brilliant.  (From Cracked)

Life...and tomato jam.  (From Diary of A Stay At Home Mom)

Scientists are working to reverse death. Well, good luck with that.  (From Newser)

And my very favorite dog commercial ever -- Charley would love to do this. If we'd let him.

And for a nice selection of dog commercials worldwide:

Have a great week.

A young friend once sent her in-progress fantasy novel to me for review. I read it. Then, feeling virtuous and magnanimous, I all but...
