If you have no idea what this is about…the gist is exactly what the video states…the CEO of Abercrombie & Fitch is either a complete moron or a genius. Anyone who is ridiculous enough to actually outright tell people that their store is exclusionary must be a genius, right?!
I love the video and the whole idea…talk about smacking the CEO in the face with a piece of his own medicine!
I have always been interested in space travel. At one point I seriously looked into what it would take to become an astronaut – I was so excited when Christa McAuliffe was chosen to be a teacher in space, because it was a way I may have been able to realize that dream. We all know how that turned out, sadly.
Fast forward a whole bunch of years, to five months ago when Canadian astronaut, Chris Hadfield made his way to the International Space Station (ISS). It has been such a ride. I even watched the space walk this weekend – GEEK! I have completely geeked out following Chris Hadfield on twitter. The photos has has posted have been absolutely phenomenal!
Hadfield also brought his guitar to space with him and has done a few performances during that time. Here is today’s performance – with Ed Robertson of Barenaked Ladies!
Sadly, his tenure on the ISS has come to an end and he is in the process of returning to earth – touch down is expected to be 10:30 pm EST.
And as one of his last tributes from space, of course Hadfield sang…his own version of David Bowie’s “Space Oddity.”
It’s been at least six months…more likely a year since my last Random Tuesday. So where to go with this post…let’s see.
The maple sap ran crazy on Thursday, Friday and Saturday and Hubby spent 22 hours Saturday and Sunday boiling it down to syrup. At least 750 litres (close to 200 gallons) of sap was boiled. That’s a lot of sap to boil over the course of two days. It also means A LOT of syrup…and this was the third batch this season. I have a list of people who are waiting to buy the stuff. For all the professional syrup producers this season far and away beats last year’s season…that lasted all of seven days.
This is the winter that just won’t go away. It was late starting, true, but usually by now most of the snow is gone and the temperatures are starting to warm up. Monday night has seen quite a bit of rain fall and I have loved listening to every drop. I actually don’t mind rainy days (just don’t look at my hair!), I find the sound of the rain to be rather relaxing. This rain has the added benefit of washing away some of the snow and I am loving every last little bit of rain if it makes the snow go away.
