Veteran’s Day

I wanted to wish everyone a thoughtful Veteran’s Day.

I think this man’s name is Martin. I’ve seen his vimeo performances before and I thought he was so cute. Here he is singing “Where Have All the Flowers Gone?” and it really touched my heart today. I love this song. I love the lyrics. (I also love Dolly Parton’s version with Norah Jones and Lee Ann Womack.)

Some of you might think he sounds funny, but I don’t care. He is so cute to me.

In honor of Halloween, I thought it’d be fun to make a list of my top 15 scary movies of all time. Some of these movies don’t scare me that much now, but they are all movies that have really scared me at one time or another.

National Senior Health & Fitness Day

Today is National Senior Health & Fitness Day, and I had to share this clip in honor of this special occasion. I would seriously pay money to attend this!!

It’s never too late, ladies!

National Endangered Species Day

Today is National Endangered Species Day. This year it sucks because of the recent BP Deepwater Horizon oil spill in the gulf. It literally makes me sick to think about the environmental impact it is having on the wildlife not to mention the people who’s livelihood are affected by this huge travesty. In any case, let’s keep in mind the millions of other living things that make our world so great. Click here to see more.

Some of my favorite endangered species in baby form:

Arbor Day

Maya Lin and the great people over at (a beautiful site, btw. GO. NOW.) are behind this great video that I thought would be especially appropriate to salute today of all days.

Happy Arbor Day, everyone! Thank the trees for being so amazing!

Bea Arthur Day

Yesterday marked the 1-year anniversary since Bea Arthur passed away and I so had a moment of silence.
