Gerber Baby Grows Up and Grows Old

As a current Mom and a former baby I am familiar with the Gerber Baby iconic blue baby. I never realized that  model baby was used. Well, here is face that helped sell untold numbers of baby food and formula,  Ann Turner Cook, now 85. But don’t fear if you were worried about the Gerber baby falling behind the times, so to speak. There is a new and fresh baby face for the Gerber brand,  Mary Jane Montoya. Congrats baby Mary Jane, we hope you enjoy your place as the…

Top Ten Crazy Things Heard While Doing Tech Support

Today I’m sharing a guest post from Jim Ciscell, who also writes for many other sites such as Cracked.com and Toptenz.net. Confessions from a Tech Support Customer Service Rep When you work tech support for over ten years, you are likely to hear some crazy things said over the line by people you are talking to. I am not talking about the ‘cup holder / cd-rom” being broke. There is a level of crazy that will keep you awake at nights just thinking about what you heard. This is all…

Weird Flowers In Honor of #FloralFriday

Hanging out on Google + today I noticed a hashtag trending called #floralfriday. Having a few moments to spare I decided to hunt down a few weird flowers and share. I found some weird flowers to be sure but I don’t know the names of the first two flowers, does anyone else know what these strange, but beautiful flowers are called? Weird Bluish Flower This weird, but beautiful flower almost looks like it was made from ceramic or plastic. Looks like a hardy flower…I wouldn’t get too close. source Popcorn…

Disney Owns Indiana Jones – And That’s a Good Thing

indiana-jones-sketch

A friend of mine drew this sketch of Indiana Jones (Harrison Ford) after he read that Lucas Films had been bought out by Disney. Everyone is wondering about Star Wars (and Boba Fett), but not much mention of Indy. Maybe this will be new life for the Adventures of Indiana Jones. So not much else to say, just wanted to post this sketch. Thanks, Shell. Here are some other more complete pieces of artwork from DeviantArt.com featuring Indiana Jones. Indiana Jones by J. Scott Campbell. source Indiana Jones (Prisma Colors)…

Tragic Results Of One Town’s Pollution

  In the fall of 1948, just a few days before Halloween, the tiny mill town of Donora, Pennsylvania was in for a swift, tragic and frightening disaster. The town of Donora is situated within a bend of the Monongahela River. It was a hard-working town filled with residents, nearly half of whom worked at one of U.S. Steel’s two plants. Both the Donora Zinc Works and the American Steel & Wire plant were surrounded by half a mile of dead plants. The routine emissions were thick and yellowish and…

A Halloween Marriage Proposal with Carved Pumpkins

marriage-proposal-with-pumpkins

What woman doesn’t love a creative proposal? I think you will find the dedication from this gentleman impressive. He not only carved 4 pumpkins with his marriage proposal but also took the time to decorate around the pumpkins. I can’t comment on the size of the diamond, but it isn’t always the size that matters, here it is definitely the thought. And guess what, she did say yes. Jack-O-Lanterns aren’t just for Halloween anymore, now they double as marriage proposal squash. And to further add to the coolness of the…

box-of-boogers-candy

When I think of candy I think of chocolate bars, fruity flavors and lollipops. But it seems some individuals (not judging) would like their candy to be a bit on the disgusting side. So here are some candy choices I don’t want to see my children bring home on Halloween night. To be more clear, here is a list of gross candy that I wouldn’t eat and I don’t want to see my children eat. (shudders). What are your thoughts? Do you like gross novelty candy or would you prefer…

Meanwhile in Australia

Just imagine seeing this along side the road while driving in the United States?!? Maybe Australians as used to seeing 25-foot snakes slithering along the road, but I would definitely have a freak out moment. Heck, seeing a 2 foot black snake causes me to squeal and run in the other direction. Not sure why I posted this other than for some shock value. Did it work? Are you shocked? Better question, are you ever visiting Australia after seeing this? Just for more Australian fun, here is a map with…

19 kids and 1 Car

And no, this isn’t a clown car. This is a very obtuse school teacher who thought she could cram, squish and mold 19 children into the shape of her car. Her somewhat saving grace is the fact she was taking the kids on a school field trip. School teacher, Melanie Minnie (you have got to love the last name in this situation), who lives in South Africa was fined $175. She says this is the last time she will be taking the kids on a trip. I assume the parents…
