Maybe This is Weird Thing # 2 ???

I like being an adult because I can eat pizza or cookies or spaghetti or leftover shrimp or anything I want for breakfast and no one can stop me. :-)

Weird Thing about Me #1

A few blog posts back, I said I had been tagged and had to tell 7 weird things about me. Here is #1.

~~~Have you ever ordered a salad in a restaurant? Then when they bring it, it's a nice size all full of the things you like but it is stuffed into a really small if you want to put your salad dressing on it, how do you get the dressing to the parts underneath? Then, if you cut part of it, the lettuce falls out of the bowl. Ugh. The bowl is too SMALL!~~~

So, what I do now is ask for a larger bowl or plate to accompany my salad - even if I order a small salad. My husband says I am the only person he has ever known that cannot eat a salad stuffed into a small bowl...... I don't want to. I want a larger bowl. :-)

Watch the World from your Computer

I have discovered one of the best things on the internet. Cams and Live Video Cams. There are evidently hundreds and probably thousands of cameras all over the world and we have access to them on the internet!!
Some of the cameras take still shots and update at predetermined intervals. Some are live videos.

This is my favorite:
Someday, I plan to go to this camera and have friends meet me there on the computer at an appointed date and time. Check out the other cameras around NYC!

I also enjoy watching the remote areas of Alaska.

There is even a camera that updates, I think every 5 minutes, on Mount St. Helen!

There are MANY more websites that offer more of the same. If you don't have anything to do, go look around the world - LIVE!

If you find some that really interest you, send them to me and I will post the link!
