The baby gorilla was born on Dec. 22, just months after Kijivu’s second child, Tatu, died after accidentally hanging himself with a climbing rope. Zoo director Miroslav Bobek called the death the most tragic event at the zoo since flooding in 2002 killed more than 100 animals. (© Frantisek Vlcek/isifa/MAFRA/Getty Images)

Dec. 26, 2012: This blue heron had been looking for food in a quiet marsh when it bit off more than it could chew with a feisty snake. The snake tightly wrapped its body around the heron’s beak before the bird had the chance to bite. After 15 minutes, the heron changed technique & started to bang the snake on the ground. The reptile’s grip began to wane & the heron gulped it down. (© Peter Brannon/Caters)

What a Make-Over

I’m seldom impressed with progams that enhance way beyond the normal – because Understanding them, I do not.  But for those who do, creations are amazing as to what and how they do what they do.  The creative art of imagination and smoothing skin, reducing the size of ones waist, or the other end to become outrageous.  Some of those programs involved are Photoshop – which I do not understand but admire.

 

So when I came across something while visiting a site that was brought to my attention awhile back,  Give Away Of The Day, which I visit every once in awhile and saw something that sounded ‘interesting’ on Wednesday – (Yesterday) December 14, 2011 – downloaded it and gave it a try.

 

Love the program.  When one is down and out and feeling bad – looks bad … this is a lift that boost the inner feeling in me.  Battling cancer – (amongst other things) .. This was of curosity …. and did not make me feel as old (and older some days) than I am … it made me feel and look better.  And it can even show what shades may look better on me. Who knew!

 

While the ‘giveawayoftheday’ for this item is over – you just might find something equally as exciting for you there.

(and the price to purchase seems ok)

The Link for GiveAwayOfTheDay

The Program is ArcSoft Perfect365 and their Link

Price is $29.99

My Makeover

 

So This does show how a little bit of Foundation, Lip Gloss, Rosy Cheeks & dash of Eye Color can Help the Inner Self as well as the Outer Self.  This was a Camera Cell Phone Photo After I had had my Hair Snipped Getting Ready for Surgical Procedure Tomorrow (nothing bad).

I feel as though I look a bit like I did in

MY HEADER PHOTO!

So I hope you will enjoy this Picture & the Program with the link of Daily Give-Aways.

(ps… if you’re down this far … I’ll be 60 in February)

Grounds for Murder??

Classic Pontiac LeMans owner arrives at Car Show early in order to get the best display spot.

 

Then, the next classic car, a ’40 Ford shows up and grabs the second stall…

Next, This Idiot woman plows through !!!

 She was busy Texting and didn’t notice the nice cars on the other side of the curb she was about to jump – never touched the brake and stayed on the throttle even after impact.

 

How do you SLEEP?

When it comes to sleeping – I suppose that when one (or more) are tired and need sleep we can sleep just about anywhere.  Have you ever had an unusual sleeping spot.  Any of the ones in this site – have you done?

Take comfort from this photo that parallels…

 

Reminds me of Psalm 91:4

 

He will cover you with his feathers.

He will shelter you
with his wings.

His faithful promises are your armor and protection. 
  
 The photographer caught this special moment,

what a privilege to see.
