As the Father of a Daughter

fgulla:

I can’t write this well; nor could I for very long and not cry out loud.  For my wife and daughter and granddaughters and nieces and cousins and all the women I know.  I will do more.  I hope others will join me.

And if you are someone who doesn’t get this, drop me a line and let’s talk about this.

Well said.

This year’s Color Me Rad was my third color run and I swear I got more color on me than the two previous races combined.  It was a little chilly and windy but once we were inside the park it wasn’t so bad.  Opted not to wear a hat and then got doused with dye at every station.  I wasn’t sure if Viking Hubby would have fun but he enjoyed it, especially after the race when we showered each other with extra color bombs.  If he’d had one of the color blasters, he would’ve been terrorizing me the whole 5k.

Can’t wait til next year!

Fun!

I would have liked a different song, but apparently this was the only one on my phone?!? Anyway, love the idea and the app. - http://flipagram.com/f/0Kee51Blcd

Hold her hand as often as you can because one day, before you know it, she’ll be letting go to hold someone else’s.

Tempted by “Temptations”

I’m Colbie, and I’m addicted to treats! I figured out how to open the cabinets in the kitchen, so now I go into the one under the drawer where they keep the treats, push it open from the inside, and climb in!

That’s one smart cat!

Did you know that you can make houses out of plastic bottles? By filling them with sand, and molding them together with mud or cement, the walls created are actually bullet proof, fire proof, and will maintain an comfortable indoor temperature of 64 degrees in the summer time.

And it’s not like there is any shortage on used plastic bottles out there. Here are some statistics from treehugger.com:

“The United States uses 129.6 Million plastic bottles per day which is 47.3 Billion plastic bottles per year. About 80% of those plastic bottles end up in a landfill!”

To build a two bedroom, 1200 square foot home, it takes about 14,000 bottles.

The United States throws away enough plastic bottles to build 9257 of these 2 bedroom houses per day! That’s just over 3.35 million homes, the same number of homeless people in America.

Many people in third world countries have taken up building homes out of plastic bottles, from Africa to Asia. Perhaps the trend will catch on in America and all of those bottles will stop ending up in the landfills. Wouldn’t they be better off housing the homeless? Kinda like all those empty houses scattered all over the country?

Perfect

This blows my mind.
