(5) Things we love…#118

Posted in Things We Love

Considering that a) America is building a wall south of the border to keep out my beloved work colleagues; b) we are considering tariffs on Mexican imported products (which, in petty and selfish terms would mean no more affordable avocados and no more tomatoes in winter (let’s leave the bigger picture out or it’s too mind-boggling); c) the media is, apparently, the new opposition party, I only have two choices: I can smoke weed, while still legal, until all this goes away or I stick with keeping it light. For this week, I am keeping it light.

beautifu-boozeOne. If you are in a party mood this weekend, here is a fun alternative to conventional cocktails (put on the radar by who else? if not sofagirl).

atlas-obscura-sugar-blowingTwo. I had seen glass-blowing in action but sugar-blowing??

atlas-osbscura-tombstoneThree. This wins the award for most intriguing tombstone. If you are visiting Goldfield, NV go pay your respects.

Four. Some good news in a sea of crap (thanks to Big H for this).

the-local-francsFive. Bad English. Bad translation. Just hilarious (put on the radar by man-about-town Eddie C)

  1. Yep, light works! And I’ve always got a moment for nuzzling pandas. Thank you.

      Animals are my favorite escapism – in case it wasn’t clear by now.

  2. Non capisco l’ultimo, ma … siamo tutti con gli occhi aperti e le orecchie tese. E qui l’erba non è nemmeno legale

  3. Re #5, the translations are hilarious, but I would be scared to eat any of that. Imagine if they had to translate the recipe as well!

      That is a thought – I must search for bad recipe translations.
