August 24th round up: Found rotties, zombie brides, and deep fried butter!

Here's some stuff I found in the last week (or so... I'm a little late!) and thought was cool or though-provoking.
Note:  This contains some politically-oriented stuff, and my point of view.  While well thought-out comments of any point of view welcome -- as I am quite open-minded -- trolls will be summarily deleted. 
Happiness and compassion

  • “If you let go a little, you will have a little peace. If you let go a lot, you will have a lot of peace.” -Ajahn Chah -- Tinybuddha.com has some great ideas on letting go.
  • Blogger Life with 5 dogs tells the story how she helped track down a lost Rottweiler who was gone for 14 days!  Beautiful story!  And dear to my heart because we have a Rottie mix!
  • 7 lessons you learn when it's too late -- from blogger Balance in me.  Good stuff! My faves are, "It is never too early to start living a healthier lifestyle." and "Don’t take for granted what you have."
Stuff that gets me riled up

  • So who is the middle-aged woman who stopped to stroke the cat.... before cruelly dumping kitty in the litter? -- You'll have to watch the video.  A woman who looks like your average sweet lady walks down a sidewalk, sees a cute cat on the brick wall, pets it, then drops it into a trash bin.  WHAT?  Random acts of cruelty?  I don't get it.
  • Can Same-Sex Marriage Save Straight Marriage from Itself? Last week, blogger Jeremy Adam Smith from Daddy Dialectic published an op-ed in the San Francisco Chronicle about the Proposition 8 ruling. However, he also published the "full-length" version on his blog.  Well worth the read.
  • This is video of a protest at "Ground Zero" against the Islamic Center.  An African American with a skull cap walks through the crowd, and is accosted by some of the protesters.  His response? "All y'all dumb motherf***ers don't even know my opinion on shit."  My thought?  Prejudice: preconceived opinion that is not based on reason or actual experience.

Geekery

The sad thing is... I've done this. From Twaggies.com.


Fellow blogger, What would Jen do, is a zombie lover -- as am I.  Guess what her loving husband got her?  It's so awesome, you'll never guess.  Just scroll down.

True love!



Because I can't resist

Simon Tofield's animated cartoons about his cat.  Or maybe MY cat.





Blogger Mommypants shows us that, yes Virginia, deep fried butter does exist. Ewwww...

Yeah that dude with the skull cap was interviewed and he's not even Muslim!!!

Also, the video with the cat, she doesn't pet so much as look around to see if anyone's looking, then spots the trash can and carefully picks the cat up who thinks she's just picking him up for a cuddle! Whoever lucked out on the video should put the cat up for adoption, I bet he'd get a great home with this national recognition!!!
