Posting on a Thursday - how unusual

Thursday is usually my day off - I don't usually join in on any memes on Thursday and when I post without a meme, I usually don't get any comments, which depresses me : )  I did, however, have a few things I wanted to say today.  


No. 1 - I had my first weigh in at Weight Watchers last night and lost 4.4 pounds - had I removed my Crocs, it may have been 4.5 but, hey, they're part of me.


No. 2 - Hootin' Anni is in the third week of her new meme and it's really a great one - makes you think!  Unfortunately, I am still at a loss for an idea after these three weeks.  Perhaps I've lost the ability to think?  Perhaps my taste is toward music with lyrics that wouldn't be acceptable?  Whatever.  Why don't you hop on over there and see what you can come up with - it's really a good one!


No. 3 - Am still very very happy with Chrome vs. Internet Explorer.  I have only found two things that don't make me happy, as compared to the many many things on IE.  First, some sites won't show their full content in Chrome.  Second, if you like to highlight portions of articles or whatever and print just the highlighted section, you can't in Chrome.  Or I should say I can't - maybe I'm doing something wrong.  I truly believe that they will fix these problems, or maybe they're not even problems - after all Chrome is streamlined to go very fast and maybe these are extras that fall by the wayside.  Anyway, I'm still happy with it!  My frustration level has gone way down.


And now, just so you won't miss seeing some pictures, here are a few of some of the guitars that Victor makes by hand, from blocks of wood.


This one has the head covered in a thin sheet of some blue shell - forget the name:
This one has an armadillo he hand carved - his company is called Blind Armadillo:
And this one I just particularly like the wood - and you should feel it - smoother than satin.  I know, the cliche is smoother than silk, but I happen to feel satin is smoother than silk:
That's all folks.  Have a happy day.  Peace.  B : )

Oh my gosh...he makes these guitars by hand? The one you share looks marvelous!! Beyond marvelous actually.

Thanks for the reference to my new meme. Really, it's easier than you think. You will give it try someday, I'm sure of it. And if you think the 'lyrics' aren't suitable...you'd be surprised. Just go for it!!

And regarding the Chrome Browser. I've heard all kinds of good things about it. In my opinion...I E sucks. It's the worst.
