There I fixed it

A friend forwards me things like these now and then (Thanks, Mareng Chet). I thought they would be nice for T13. They're all over the internet but I would never have noticed them if they weren't sent to me. I bet my broken bread toaster and extension cord this is not new to some of you either. But just for fun, which one to you is most ingeniously done?

I would lose it if I actually saw one of those. It's so hard to believe some people who do these things :)

Hehhe this are funny hehee...Thanks for sharing. Happy Thursday 13.
I think I love the shopping cart/grill grate the best. But the bike's a close second.

Some of these make me sad, though. It's hard to see how difficult life is for some people (and if you want more good ones, check out Lovely Listings. One of my favorite sites on the Net!)

LOL! These are great! I've seen some others, but not these particular ones. The scary part? I could see myself doing some of this.
I visit this website every day. Its usually good for a laugh.
LOL ... what an amazing set of photos for today's 13! Love the rake over the barbeque and the unique 'grill' in the last photo espceially ;-)
Hugs and blessings,

Wow, I need to tell my Dad and his friend that people are following them with cameras.

Actually the sprinkler soda bottle is a great reuse of of something you'd otherwise throw away. Very "Green". That's "in" now.

My favorite is the basket bike. Who couldn't use one of those?

Weekend Snapshot: The AIDS Temple (Lopburi I)

It is sometimes referred to as the AIDS Museum, I tend to call it AIDS Temple. Descriptively it is a buddhist hospice for AIDS patients, the largest one in Thailand. Three of us, a friend, my son and I paid Wat (temple) Phrabat Nampu in Lopburi a visit last weekend. As it is where people with AIDS go to to die, most of what we saw are not exactly the ones I'm in a hurry to show off. But if you are curious, you may want to click on a post I did days ago. Anyway, on with shots that I don't think will give anyone a coronary:

100 steps to the wat
After the climb this is where you arrive at

"View from the top" - those are bare cornfields visitors pass by on their way to the temple

Side view of the Life Museum which ironically displays mummies

A usual sight around Thai temples

Bone sculptures

The temple bell

Life is beautiful. Most of us would prefer that of course. AIDS is also real.


The Rumford is a much more efficient way to heat a room than earlier fireplaces....(Wikipedia on Benjamin Thompson, Count Rumford, designer of tall, shallow fireplaces which are now known as the Rumford, was an Anglo-American physicist known for his investigations of heat)Living in the tropics, I have been in close proximity with only three fireplaces in my life. There was an unused one in the home of my college professor in the Philippines. The other one from which I could feel the heat and see the fire dancing was in a hotel lobby in the Yorkshire Moors. Picture taking was quick. Two old ladies were having tea by it, but that was my first ever real fireplace experience, and I loved it. The latest I have touched is the one in Jane Austen's imaginary Northanger Abbey.
The fireplace, where she had expected the ample width and ponderous carvings of former times, was contracted to a Rumford, with slabs of plain though handsome marbles, and ornament over it of the prettiest English ch…

Honor, Awards and a Game

Tuesday Couch Potatoes: Made of Honor
Awards and a Game/Meme follow. Please scroll down a bit.

My pick for this week's TCP theme (wedding movie) is Made of Honor. I like the humor in it. We've all been to several weddings but how many of us can say I've been to one in which the maid of honor was a he? The scene which particularly cracked me up is when the priest mistook the maid of honor for a gay man =) If you're familiar with some of my likes, you'd know why I also love the Scotland location of the wedding. For more of the synopsis click here; and here's the trailer:

My super duper bloggy friend Thom of Thom's Place for Well Whatever and fellow Mom Tetcha of Pensive Thoughts awarded me this Beautiful Blogger award. I have to list seven things about me so here they are:

1. I love wearing jeans more than skirts.
2. One of my favorite colors is purple.
3. I don't mind spending sunrise…
