Cool links 8-25-18

Cool links 8-25-18 range from cookies to chocolate and a couple of places in between.

Chocolate Spill

Oh, to be behind this truck when it rolled into a ditch!

A semi-trailer, hauling 40,000 pounds of Hershey products overturned recently and lost part of its load.

I know from experience any food spilled can’t be sold. A truckload of toaster pastries spilled near my house, and we stuffed our freezer and ate well all winter long.

Where did the Hershey bars go? What a sweet deal!

Diver helps shark

A scuba diver in Australia removed a fishing net stuck in its mouth. Read the article here.

Score 1 for the diver

Score 1 for the shark

The poor little fishies who might end up as lunch score Zero.

Maybe they chould have redesigned the actual cracker. Is it an elephant? Or a rhino?

Cool Links for June 9, 2018

Time flies when you’re on the road. I’m in Canada for six more days. Fortunately, Canada has internet, and I swear I’m on it as much as when I’m home. Anyway, no sightseeing today as it’s raining. The rain provides a good reason to tether myself to my laptop and give you access to the cool links for June 9, 2018 blog.

Dancers create an optical illusion

Simplemost.com highlights this crazy dance routine. Tell me you didn’t look at their legs the whole time.

Bee Mine

Since I’m soon releasing a love story (see below) and I’m editing two others and outlining a series, I thought I’d share this video of true love:

Cool links for May 19, 2018. Fried bacon strips as bookmarks.

It’s Saturday, time for your Cool Links for May 19, 2018

I’ve been remiss about posting all the cool links I’ve stumbled across on the internet. Blame simultaneously competing in 2018’s AtoZChallenge, and writing 31K for CampNaNo. Whew. Now that April’s out of the way, I have time for my regular posting schedule. Here are your cool links for May 19, 2018.

The Best Things Found Between the Pages of Old Books

Atlas Obscura reports on the coolest things found between the pages of old books. Fried bacon as bookmarks? Suicide notes? A picture of yourself as a child? (spooky). I confess the only things I’ve found in an old book are grocery store receipts and a prom picture from the ’80’s. Do you have a story to tell? Leave it in the comments.

Cool but weird library

Is it an igloo? Is it a sculpture? No, it’s the Tianjin Binhai Public Library in Tianjin, China. It’s five stories tall and 34,200 square meters of glass, designed to look like a giant eye. I’m .  . . I’m speechless. It not only holds the artistry of thousands of writers, it is art.

China’s Newest Library Looks Like It’s From Another Planet.

Can you imagine roaming the shelves of this magnificent structure? Amazing.

Bubble Wrap

Who doesn’t like to pop the bubbles in bubble wrap? This video explains how it’s made. I wonder, though, does the novelty ever wear off?

All the Words

Wordhippo.com

Finally, if you’re looking for the right word, consider using wordhippo.com. I generally sneak over to thesaurus.com when I want a synonym, but wordhippo offers more:

  • Meaning of
  • Rhymes with
  • Sentences with
  • find word forms
  • Pronounce
  • Translate from/to English
  • Words starting with/ending with/containing
  • Scrabble
  • Words with Friends

I’m putting wordhippo on my radar.

Thanks for joining me for today’s edition of Cool Links. I’m on the road for the next three weeks. Hopefully, I’m organized enough to schedule my posts in advance. If not, prepare for a bombardment of silence, or photos of Oregon and British Columbia.

Blessings,

Cheryl
