We have similar Mardi Gras festivals here in Tampa, but we call them Gasparilla, when Tampa Bay is invaded by pirates and lighthearted insanity insues.
I've got tons of beads from many parades I've attended, but the above is one one my most favorite catches of all time... cubular beads.

Talk about media suck up:
Hillary Clinton Turned Down a Spot on 'Dancing With The Stars'
Yes, it's a good idea that someone who can't manage to get up or down a few stairs is even a candidate for an extrenuously active dance competition. Hello?
I know, let's nominate Ruth Bader Ginzburg next.

May we please now stop hating on the Trumps for no good reason.
Is that too much to hope?

Daytona Veteran Beaten Up For Trying To Save A Turtle
Anybody that hurts a defenseless animal will hurt anyone or anything else.
Certainly a case for more prisons.

I was crushed when Rumor came in second last year at the Westminster Dog Show and then retired.
A German Shepherd Won The Westminster Dog Show For Only The Second Time In 141 Years
This year she made quite the comeback. Good for you, beautiful girl.

I was driving home when I heard this on the radio:
Mentally Ill Man Who Beheaded Bus Passenger Is Freed From All Supervision
What kind of baggy pants farce is this, I asked myself.
I'm hoping this is some of that FAKE news I keep hearing about.
UPDATE: I checked into story and it is true news. I wonder how often this kind of travesty of justice occurs and how often we are unknowingly among murderers.

I woke up at seven and starting locking up the house for nightfall, right?
It was seven AM! My inner clock was still messed up thanks to the sedation from the dentist's office yesterday.
Better living through chemistry, I always say, well, most of the times.
I'll be back in my right mind soon... I hope ;)

Make that 500,001.
Sorry about the unannounced absence, but it hasn't been a happy time around here for this self-avowed anti-dentite or, as others have called me, "a big baby, a big chicken, a coward, etc., when it comes to the dentist."
My front tooth, yes, my beloved FRONT tooth broke along the back, just like that, no warning, no snarky tweet signaling its impending demise. Nothing... just pain and an inability to eat all of the good stuff in this world.
So, I embarked on the long and tedious journey towards my first dental implant, with a detour along the way to getting my blood pressure under control before the implantation process could even begin.
did I already *sigh*?
Anyway, I passed one big dental hurdle today and finally see a tiny flicker of light in the distance ... or is that just a lighted drone?
