Body Image Experiment

Standard
For many decades, the media has idealized their image of the “perfect woman”, going so far as to photo-shop pictures of models to inhuman proportions. Culture dictates that looks are important. The message comes across to females of all ages and shapes that they do not measure up. For many women, this expectation can damage their self-esteem.
In recent years, a backlash has been building against the media’s message, and rightly so. Many women, along with some men, are speaking out, their message being that beauty comes in all shapes and sizes. It is time for us to be comfortable in our own skin.
In the following video, presented by HLN, Amy Pence-Brown puts her message forth by stripping down to her underwear in the middle of an outdoor market. The response is heartwarming.

Shower Time for Woody

Standard

I know it has been a bit since last posting anything – a lot has gone on, some good, some not so much.

However, instead of going into all that now, I would rather have a laugh, as laugh therapy is a requirement in my life. It should be in yours also!

Today’s “medicine” is brought to you by Woody, a cat (of course!) who obviously appreciates a good shower.

Wish I could show you on my blog what gave me a laugh. Unfortunately, I cannot figure out how to post a Vine other than giving you the link. (If anyone out there knows how, please tell me!) However, I will give you a hint: there is a cat involved! (Not much of a surprise there! 🙂 )

Hope you enjoy it as much as I did!

Airplane Safety Information Has Never Been So Much Fun!

Jess Dixon’s flying automobile c. 1940

In an effort to make “flying the friendly skies” more safe, Delta has decided to get serious.

When it comes to the inflight safety talk, many people think they know the information, find it boring and/or may not pay attention. With the help of some infamous memes, Delta is hoping to change this perception. Safety in the air has gotten real – real entertaining!

See if you agree!

I thought my guys were pretty loud (you can hear them purr across the room!), but this cutey has them beat!

Merlin the cat is giving dishwashers strong competition in the noise department with his record-setting purr.

The black-and-white house cat belonging to Tracy Westwood of Torquay, England, registered a purr measured at 67.8 decibels, setting the record for the loudest purr by a domestic cat, Guinness World Records announced on Wednesday.

Merlin narrowly beat the previous record of 67.68 decibels set in 2011 by Smokey, another British cat.

Merlin, a housecat from Britain, has set a new world record for the loudest purr by a domestic cat. According to …

The average house cat’s purr reportedly measures 25 decibels.

Merlin, who is 13 years old, can be so loud that Westwood says she occasionally has to repeat herself in conversation. In a preview clip for “Cats Make You Laugh Out 2,” Westwood said her cat’s purr has previously been measured even louder.

“When you’re watching films, you have to turn the telly up or put him out of the room. If he’s eating he’ll purr loudly. I can hear him when I’m drying my hair,” she said in a news release from Guinness. “If he’s cleaning, he gets louder. And sometimes if the telephone rings, I do get people asking me what’s that noise in the background. I tell them it’s the cat, but I don’t know if they believe me.”

Westwood adopted Merlin from a local shelter.

There was no indication that Merlin’s loud purr is due to a medical problem.
