Funny Google Trouble. Getting Lost in the world wide web.



Hello Google... Where is my name?

I thought this story was funny until I actually figured out
it's hilarious.

A person named Irina Slutsky doesn't think you should be quick
to blame anyone for being given a name when she's describing her way
out of Google.
Remember: don't judge a book by it's cover, after all 
it's not the book's fault- what kind of cover it's got.

Here is a small piece from the trouble report:

"...Google Instant search box... We tried typing letter by letter. S ... skype, sears, southwest airlines. SL ... sleep train, slanted door. SLU.... slumdog millionaire, slurpee. SLUT...SLUTS....

We added the "K," thinking that would solve it. SLUTSK.... still nothing. Only after you clicked "search" did my clips, my Twitter account and my GeekTV videos show up. But the beauty of Google Instant is that it's click-free..."

Well, everyone loves Google, anyway...
And as we all know, small problems make love grow stronger.
Google probably knows that too, and more.
So, let's search on...
You can read the whole story of the lost name right here.

Mandala 10/10/10. Sunday Creation.



10/10/10 Sunday led me to make this piece of symmetry.
It now can be used for meditation, visualization,
contemplation of spiritual ( or any ) matter,
and of course just as a stand-alone calendar page.

MANDALA 10/10/10 calendar page

Mandala: symmetrical, usually circular design
used mainly in Hinduism and Buddhism as a meditation object.

I made this one uncolored, bw, so you can print it out
and give it to a kid to color or color it yourself if you like.
I think it can make a cute tee shirt picture too.

'no news' post is to break the rules of posting



Rule number one: If there's nothing to say don't say anything.

Rule number two: Rules are meant to be broken.

This post is basically a two rule mix that has nothing in it besides the matching statement that shows... well... nothing really. :))

Brutus, the bear is a spoiled furry friend. He even got to be best man at the wedding.


This friendship is adorable but I think it's quite demanding too.
Naturalist Casey Anderson has adopted a 58-stone grizzly bear called Brutus and raised him since birth.
The bear even acted as best man when Anderson married Charlie and the Chocolate Factory actress Missi Pyle.

Casey says that many people wrongly assume that bears are blood-thirsty man eaters when the opposite is actually true and that they normally shun human contact. But Brutus isn't shy when it comes to having his meal at the family dinner table
Anderson created the Montana Grizzly Encounter animal sanctuary and said that it was Brutus who has prompted him to do that.
It's believed that grizzly bears are intelligent and inquisitive creatures and usually have no intention to cause any harm to humans. They are mostly vegetarian and eat about 35 pounds of food daily and weigh up to 1,200 pounds.
Grizzly bear is a type of brown bear and generally lives in the uplands of western North America.

earth quake came from Santa Monica in the early morning


This earthquake was 3.6, happened around 2:30 in the morning, felt pretty strong but it was quick and so I willed myself back to sleep not too long after that.
I was waiting for the aftershocks for a while and was in bed thinking I should go back to sleep since it was only 2:30 am. I waked up right before that as I usually do when this things happen, I don't know why and I don't know it before it happens.
I can't tell about the aftershocks as I was asleep, which was a really big accomplishment to me, I feel lucky if I can sleep after that, considering I can never get used to the earth quakes and it's always distressing, whether it's a day or night.So right now it's a bright day, not sunny yet which is fine and I'm trying to do a million things at once, again, but not before the scrambled eggs and some ginger tea to warm up and speed down.

*Refresh and reinvent... And have some tea...

hazelnuts, cookies and a strawberry on top.



melt chocolate and pour over properly positioned hazelnuts sitting on top of the cookies
strawberries are making it all brighter

I didn't make this but I plan on doing so some time.
It looks like if you bake or buy some cookies, melt chocolate and pour over properly positioned hazelnuts sitting on top of the cookies you'll get a replica of this looking as good as it taste little sweet rounds.
This cookies are thin and crisp but I think I would try to make it with a softer kind of cookie too.
The strawberries are making it all brighter and more taste and color balanced.

recycled reincarnated plastic


Once there was a bottle...It was full...then empty...And It had a dream...to become something one day... Not just get remelted into another container to hold water...even spring water...or worse, to be totally unrecycled. But to become something of a different nature... And it became a spring flower.
...................................Hold on to that dream...
