One of my all-time favorite hiking and camping spots is in the Appalachian Mountains of Virginia. There is a deep creek that runs around the mountain, several flat and grassy areas good for pitching a tent, and at the top of the mountain is a fire watch tower that anyone can climb and have a great view of four states: Virginia, West Virginia, Maryland and Pennsylvania. There is some great trout fishing in those streams. Huge fish that are trophy quality, although I strongly believe in catch and release.
Back in the days before cell phone cameras, no one would ever believe how big those fish were that I caught up on that mountain. But now I can take a snapshot and have proof of the size of my catch. There are many folks that enjoy the sport of fishing that are posting some pretty impressive catches on their Face Book Walls. Amazing how technology has even managed to effect the bragging stories fishers are (at least it used to) known for telling about “the one that got away” and how they always managed to stretch the length of their catch of the day by at least a few inches.
When I was looking for a video on YouTube, I saw the trailer for the Hobbit movie posted. Remembering that I had posted about that exact movie just a short while ago I decided to watch the trailer and share it with you here. I’m definitely looking forward to seeing it when it comes out!
I wouldn’t want to get into a Kung Fu contest with this guy! There is an endless supply of funny, entertaining and interesting animal videos on the Internet these days. I’m so grateful for YouTube.com which is still the best place to go to see videos and listen to music.
I am so happy that I have started saving videos onto my Favorite’s List on You Tube. I have been finding so many awesome songs that I can play at any given time on my laptop. I wish I had started this list years ago, I have a lot of catching up to do.
Johnny Cash and Willie Nelson, you can’t get much better than that!
My wife is very interested in crafting, and turning trash into treasure with her crafting projects. Yesterday she was watching a video about how you can use diamond saw blades to cut glass jars into glasses and vases, and now she is asking me if I have any diamond saw blades that she could use for that purpose. If I’m not mistaken, I saw a kit in a craft store designed to do exactly that. Maybe I’ll take her to the craft store and see if they still have it. I think I’d rather her have that kit than get her using my tools!
