The way to get rid of ’emotional baggage’

Gibbons seize tourist car!

The real way to get rid of emotional baggage…have fun!

Something fun for a chnage

I have been away for awhile trying to find fun things to pass the time. I really love to get into a book of almost any genre and get lost in the story. Something I also enjoy is trying to figure out who would make the best actors and actresses to cast into the screenplay version of the book if that ever happened.

There are so many ways to do this. But, how could I really let others know about the roles and who might fit them the best? I also would like to have a fun way ti discuss this with others who might like to do the same fun thing. I recently came across a fun site called StoryCasting.com that has developed a new community for fun times in fantasy cast of your favorite people to various roles in any number of works .

This is a fun site that is easy to sign up for and allows you to pick any work given by name of the author or the name of the work. You can search for actors and select them for a particular role in the story. Entering comments about why you may have selected that person for the role start a dialog with other casters.

This is really a fun way to meet other casters and talk bout you favorite books and actors that fit the roles. I have made an entry for a work with the least likely actor to play the starring role for a satirical view of the work. I’m waiting to see what kind of dialog this will get going from other casters and hopefully the author of the work. How fun!

You saw a what?? Yep, I saw a ____ of ____ going down the road and into the bar!!!

Wow did you ever think of what to tell the insurance agent when you saw these barreling across the road after escaping from a supermarket just after the zoo breakout?

LED rope lights for the party room and beyond!

I have been trying to figure out how to really brighten up the party room lately. I looked at strobe lights, colored spot light and many more. I just couldn’t find what I really needed. And to think, every one is looking for that ‘green’ category light that will look good and be energy aware at the same time. Maybe something like a LED rope light?

I have one of those crazy spiral shaped bulbs in some of my regular lamps but, that won’t do it simply because they don’t come in colors. What to do, what to do? How can I find a place that provides really neat looking LED rope lights that are energy saving, don’t get hot, and come in different colors? There’s this company called Birddog Distributing that fits the bill! They have these really cool LED Rope Lights that come on spools of 150 feet for a really great price. And the colors. WOW! Every one I looked for. Red,blue,green,yellow,amber,pink,purple and white this is fabulous! Ordering these is even easier once you come to the website. But wait, they not not only have LED rope lighting, they also have a very wide range of LED lighting products that you don’t need to go anywhere else. You really need to check them out.
