From Little Tuffy of Chicago: A Very Happy Holiday Season to All!

From Little Tuffy of Chicago: A Very Happy Holiday Season to All!

About 2 years ago, an acquaintance showed up at my door with a tiny ball of fur, an eight week-old brown poodle that he’d bought at an outdoor flea market in downstate Illinois. A little pup who had probably been raised abusively in a terrible puppy mill. Although I had no intentions of ever having a pet in my northside Chicago apartment, I relented and took little Tuffy into my home, and soon thereafter into my heart. Needless to say, Tuffy has brought endless joy to this quietly retired senior citizen.

The Kuroshio Sea: Japan’s Spectacular 2-Million Gallon Aquarium Tank

Kuroshio Sea is an amazingly peaceful five-minute short film from the acclaimed filmmaker Jon Rawlinson, accompanied by music (“Please Don’t Go” by Barcelona).  Rawlinson studied at the Vancouver Film School, where he was a top student in the New Media program. Kuroshio Sea was filmed at the Okinawa Churaumi Aquarium in Japan; the main tank, called The Kuroshio Sea, holds 1,981,290 gallons of water and features the world’s second largest acrylic glass panel. Whale sharks and manta rays are kept amongst many other fish species in the main tank. The film is presented here in HD and it’s best watched in full-screen mode. You’ll feel like you’re right there!!

Christmas is there,
This Merry Christmas, gifts full arms,
Who heats our hearts and brings the joy,
Day of the most beautiful memories,
More beautiful day of the year.

My Thoughts and Wishes to All for the Coming Year: Happy Holidays!

My Thoughts and Wishes to All for the Coming Year: Happy Holidays!

Remember the time you drove all night
Just to meet me in the morning
And I thought it was strange you said everything changed
You felt as if you’d just woke up
And you said “this is the first day of my life
I’m glad I didn’t die before I met you
But now I don’t care I could go anywhere with you
And I’d probably be happy”

-Bright Eyes
