Sing hey! For the bath at close of day that washes the weary mud away A loon is he that will not sing O! Water Hot is a noble thing!
O! Sweet is the sound of falling rain, and the brook that leaps from hill to plain; but better then rain or rippling streams is Water Hot that smokes and steams.
O! Water cold we may pour at need down a thirsty throat and be glad indeed but better is beer if drink we lack, and Water Hot poured down the back.
O! Water is fair that leaps on high in a fountain white beneath the sky; but never did fountain sound so sweet as splashing Hot Water with my feet! –JRR Tolkien
This is one of my favorite poems from my childhood. I always found it so interesting that this poem is written by J.R.R. Tolkien. Not at all what i was familiar with as his style but instead showed me a clever, smart, light-hearted little poem about how much to love a hot bath! This always for a quick second makes me remember how lucky i have it to have hot and cold piped water with no open sewage issues. The times sure have gotten a little bit prettier smelling thanks to modern plumbing!

(NaturalNews) More than 90 percent of all soybeans grown in the United States are genetically modified (GM) for herbicide resistance and are consequently sprayed with massive quantities of those toxic chemicals. Fully 85 percent of all corn grown in the country is also genetically engineered, either for herbicide resistance or to produce pesticides within its tissues.
Because i dont speak spanish, i do not know exactly what this says, but it is the credits to the coolest sweetest, dang bad assed video i have maybe ever seen! Be ready to say Damn they are so dang cute and cool!
Club Creative Studio does not have to look too far to find creativity. Because creative and innovative ideas are all around us, all we have to do is open our eyes and mind to locate it. Spotting creativity in unusual places can be especially rewarding because it is in those times that you are left with a lasting impression of what we can appreciate in art form.
These days, nerds are everywhere. Twitter profiles proclaiming oneself as a nerd abound. Ironic nerd eyeglasses have been popularized by celebrities and adopted by the masses. There's even a nerd dating website, and I swear at least one of your colleagues is on it. I wouldn't even be surprised if Nerd candy made a comeback. Blue tongues for everyone!
No longer confined to dusty basement computer labs and all-night LAN parties, one would imagine that the great 21st century nerd outage would result in all of us getting a little smarter when it comes to all things techy.
What is the problem with Coke having a white can to help bring awareness to the World Wildlife’s Funds campaign to protect polar bears habitat? I guess it was too much of a change for our poor brains here in the USA because people kept complaining that they kept thinking it was Diet Coke not regular Coke.
the pulled can
So now, all of those beautiful white cans with cute little silver polar bears on them have been pulled from the shelves. The new look of regular Coke for the winter looks like this…
(here is a side by side to be fair)

You tell me. Which can do you like better? And just for discussion sake, what do you all think of the new Diet Coke can designed right here in SF? Quite a departure from the usual, but i think i like it kinda. What about you?
There may be no post today due to the 49er game. If we win, i may not have time due to celebration excitement…. If we lose (which we wont because we have to win it all so that we can say that the SAN FRANCISCO 49ers left to be abducted to Santa Clara, which i believe all of us traditionalists and SF locals have a very hard time comprehending), I will be in deep mourning about the whole nature of the loss and the end of an era. It may be just too much to be able to distract myself from.
2010 Pulitzer-winner Mark Fiore's 96-second animated cartoon highlights the removal of Constitutional Civil Rights. When "rights" are no longer absolute, they are no longer rights. This changes the definition of the US from defending unalienable rights and limited government under a Constitution, to having control over what liberties people receive and unlimited government and no restraining law, at least in these areas of the Bill of Rights.
Miette Candy Store is bringing delight to Hayes Valley
Dont you just love a candy store that is as good to look at as the candy its self? I sure do. They look like a little sugar wonderland contained in a room. The really cute ones i think really do make the candy taste better. It is oh so alluring regardless. I find it hard to not be drawn to the window like a magnet which then as if hypnotized up the 2 small steps and into this place of color and sugar. I find it impossible to leave without looking at all the awesomely packaged and displayed bite sized treats and even more impossible to leave without buying something. It seems almost a crime to leave this little gem with all these sweet tasties without taking a little piece of it with me.
Bravo to Miette Candy Shop on Octavia St. in San Francisco. It is as visually striking to see as the contents is yummy! It is a little step into your childhood imagination of the perfect little candy shop. They carry many imported candies as well as some of the classics. I love that they really do awesome window displays for all of the desired holidays.
They have another shop that is more focused on pastries down at the Ferry Building which i have not been to but seen pictures of some of the things that come out of that shop and WOW. Beautiful confections! I believe another store is scheduled to open shortly in Berkeley Ca. as well.
(these two lovely ladies are the owners of Miette.)
Thank you Miette! Your store reaches deep into a happy place in me just by walking by! You help make San Francisco a true delight!

A bombshell interview with Newt Gingrich’s ex-wife set to air tonight could catapult Ron Paul into a shock second placed finish in South Carolina and confirm the Congressman as Mitt Romney’s main rival.
The interview with Marianne Gingrich, Newt’s wife of 18 years, “could end her ex-husband’s career,” according to a Drudge Report exclusive.
