HP Classic

I had a great idea for a post this morning but I need more time than I have right now to really write it up into something brilliant. Instead, because it is Monday and I have to post something, here’s a throwback video that always makes me smile and even laugh a bit especially in times of sadness like the world has been consistently experiencing lately. Please take two minutes and enjoy Harry Potter Puppet Pals and I’m sorrynotsorry if this gets stuck in your head today. 😉 (P.S. If you’ve seen this already, watch it again because you need it!)[...]

Facebook Friday 9/29/17

Hey, Hey! It’s Facebook Friday!!

Facebook Fridays is a weekly segment of RT where I share some fun stuff I observed on Facebook this past week. I share a fun meme or screenshot, a video that resonated in some capacity and a photo of my own.

Good morning my lovelies! Or evening depending on where you are in the world. It’s starting to feel like Fall here in Northeast Ohio. Our 90° did a 360 and now it’s a freezing 60°! Well not freezing but when you go from hot to cool really fast, it’s a bit of a shock.[...]

Cuban Crocodile

Today’s endangered species comes from the Reptilia class (no relation to the song by The Strokes). It’s in the genus, Crocodylus which includes alligators and caiman. The Cuban crocodile has a very small distribution. Over time it’s been limited to two small swamps of Cuba; the Zapata Swamp and the Lanier Swamp on the Isla de Juventad (Isle of Youth). Both of these swamps are freshwater swamps. The Cuban crocodile goes by “Crocodile De Cuba” in French and “Cocodrilo De Cuba” in Spanish.[...]

Food Discovery

I was searching RT for a post I made a while ago about types of food that we eat together that some may find weird. However, there are 241 posts on this blog and searching for the word “food” brought up a ton of posts including every Endangered post I’ve written (which are just not related to human food). So failing that, I just decided to start the post anyway. If you go searching for it, and find it, you’re a rock star![...]

Fall

For once I’m writing a post in advanced! I felt like I should get it down today because I’ll most likely forget what I wanted to say by morning.

So it’s fall in the northern hemisphere. Also known as Autumn depending on who you ask. That means several things:

  • Trees shedding leaves
  • Pumpkin everything
  • Cooler weather

Going in that order, first, I hate that the trees shed their leaves. I LOVE the color changes. They are very beautiful but I HATE raking. When you switch from living in an apartment, where you weren’t responsible for yard work, to living in a house with FOUR (kill me) ginormous oaks and whatever that tree is that drops the helicopter seeds, you truly begin to hate Fall. We’ll have dead leaves in our yard from now until Spring, no joke. All the trees (of course) are not on the same nature clock and drop their leaves at all different times. (That would make our life way too easy eh?)[...]

Facebook Friday 9/22/17

Hey, Hey! It’s Facebook Friday!!

Facebook Fridays is a weekly segment of RT where I share some fun stuff I observed on Facebook this past week. I share a fun meme or screenshot, a video that resonated in some capacity and a photo of my own.

Guess what?! It’s the first day of Autumn in the northern hemisphere today! Goodbye Summer (though you wouldn’t be able to tell currently with our 90 degrees (F) days we’ve been having this week). The leaves are starting to change colors though and that’s the main sign that matters![...]

Pygmy Three-Toed Sloth

Today’s endangered species is brought to you by a video I stumbled upon browsing my Twitter feed last night. There are two main types of sloths; two-toed and three-toed. Within those two types, there are six species of sloth: maned sloth, pale-throated sloth, brown-throated sloth, Linnaues’s two-toed sloth, Hoffman’s two-toed sloth and the pygmy three-toed sloth. Of the six species, 4 of the populations are doing well but the maned sloth is listed as vulnerable and the pygmy three-toed sloth is critically endangered.[...]

Lazy Day

Yesterday I had a lazy blog day. Well the day before was sort of lazy blog day too. Anyway, I’ve been quite exhausted lately because late last week and early this week has been all about carpet cleaning at my workplace. This meant that everything that could come off the floor without breaking backs, came off the floor. The primary ingredient for the products that are made here is graphite. This place has been in business since 1971 so you can imagine how much graphite was on absolutely everything; layers upon layers upon layers.[...]

The beautiful, amazing, wonderful, fantastic Roda@Growing Self, nominated me for this award a ways back and since I can’t think of anything else to write today except for my toilet installation (not sure if you all would want to see pictures of that), I chose this instead.[...]
