I was thinking about cacti today.
Yes, it was a slow news day.
I did not research that statement, it was just something someone told me once. I want it to be true so I'm putting absolutely no effort into disproving my own statement.
Did you hear that when Facebook recently shut down unexpectedly for a short period of time,
911 operators were flooded with calls, followed my police departments "tweeting", "Don't call 911 because Facebook shut down."
Is that a sign of the times or what?
I"m reading a book called, "Into Thin Air", about a group of people who climbed Mt. Everest, the highest mountain in the world. That baby is over 29,000 ft high. It's as high as airliners fly!! Why would someone want to do that? ( and don't tell me "because it's there." I'm so over that.) Interesting story though, worth the read.
My family is gearing up for a trip to Ireland at the end of next month. My wife and I were discussing the possibility of visiting Northern Ireland while we are there. Out of the blue last night I remembered a blogger buddy of mine named Claire, and to make a long story short, she mentioned to me, a few years ago, that her Dad was starting up a tour company that gives walking tours through Belfast. She said to me, if I ever found myself in Northern Ireland, to give her a call and she would hook me up with her dad.
Sure, like that will ever happen.
So, last night I contacted her and guess what? She's hooking me up with her dad! Are my Blog Friends the best, or what?
I'm flying home United......just saying.
