Senses working overtime #92

1 Malls in America

My wife and I were recently in a mall in Burbank and noticed how quiet it was. The Macy's was doing some business but who knows? Apparently this is a thing.

2 Writing Journals
I have sometimes kept a journal and I always use one when travelling. This article made me rethink why I don't do one more often.

3 Guy Bucchi

Guy makes chairs - beautiful works of art chairs! We stayed at his B'n'B in Matakohe recently (a lovely spot) and loved looking at his great chair designs.

4 Love this picture (in colour!!!)

5 Speaking of the fabs...



And I want one of these!

Senses working overtime #91

1 Best of the year's movies

50 of the best from the whip smart people at The Guardian!

2 A year of discoveries
Whately dude alerted me to this nifty chart - sort of thing my friend Greg Semmens would love.

3 Ted Nugent
I'm a fan of his music - not his big gob, his stance on hunting or his politics. He could be the only big name on the gig list for Trump's tremendous inauguration thing.

4 The wisdom of Yoda
I'm a sucker for this stuff, even if the writer keeps talking about Yoda as 'a little green dude' - still - worth a look!

5 Ten movies photographers should watch

Some great movies in this list.

Overtime - Romance!
I enjoyed this article about how love and romance changes in a long term relationship. The writer has been married for ten years, I've been married to one person for over thirty years - it rang true!

Senses working overtime #90

Okay - I'm currently on holiday and these Jewels are coming to you from Anaheim - the happiest place on earth. So - I haven't actually read many of my feeds and figured out the best of the best to share. Instead I'm gonna cheat and give you five plus images from our holiday in SF, London and LA so far...
Disneyland parade - amazing - made me want to watch
Toy Story again...and buy loads of stuff!

Me and Fanfa watch the parade in our cool new hats!

London and Fopp - my happy place!

IHOP - blueberry pancakes - o.m.g.

Riding the 101 with Samantha and Jacky.

Walking the dog in SF's Chrissy Field.

Overtime: Love those Disney parades!
