What better way to celebrate my 200th post than with some more cats! The following video is a well put together of cat videos, many of which you will recognize and some of which you may not. All have put a smile on my face. I hope they do the same for you!
Very cute and amusing. Perfect for the “watch during commercials” crowd. (You know you’re one of them!)
James is 3 years old and is already an action movie star! James just does regular kid stuff and somehow they turn into amazing adventures! These videos are just awesome and made me smile so much!
“I have a grapple gun!”
“3 … 2 … 1″
“It’s kind of like a real gun!”
James’ dad is Daniel Hashimoto, who is an animator at Dreamworks. That explains a lot, doesn’t it? :)
If you enjoyed those, and have more time, watch this longer video, also from ReShareWorthy:
I know I have not been “visible” lately, and will blog about my trials and tribulations at another time. Meanwhile, I leave for your entertainment pleasure the following video. I hope you enjoy it as much as I did. (As youtube has taken it down, please click on the following link to view.)
David Attenborough and the Lyrebird of Australia. In this short clip, you see how the lyrebird mimics sounds it hears. Very entertaining.
It was quite a shock when it was learned that Robin Williams passed away. My daughter read about it online and did not believe it was true at first. We both looked further and found it was.
We loved Robin Williams in his movies and shows, both dramatic and comedy. It was known that he had battled alcohol and drug addictions. Much less known was the other demon he fought – mental illness. So many people with mental illness try to drown out the disease with addictions. It is a double effort to overcome both. Sadly, the actor lost the battle.
The following is from the NY Times:
Sadly, Robin Williams passed away on August 11, 2014. Susan Schneider, the actor’s wife, released the following statement to the New York Times’ Dave Itzkoff:
“This morning, I lost my husband and my best friend, while the world lost one if its most beloved artists and beautiful human beings. I am utterly heartbroken. On behalf of Robin’s family, we are asking for privacy during our time of profound grief. As he is remembered, it is our hope that the focus will not be on Robin’s death but on the countless moments of joy and laughter he gave to millions.”
