Life's a Beach

We've started to walk on the beach in the mornings... before it gets hot! The sunrises have been just fantastic!  I need to remember to bring my camera!

This past Monday we came across some interesting items... (we took them with my hubby's phone, I tried to clean them up a bit)

Someone must have cut the head off not too long before we got there... the teeth were already gone as well.

Found a live starfish too... I've found a few of these before.  Same color and all... I need to find out what kind they are exactly.  Wish we had a salt water tank at home!  This guy was mostly buried and we almost missed him.  Anyone know what kind of starfish this one is?  I've tried looking it up and found quite a few pics, but no actual label for the type/kind it falls under.

Gone Surfin'

Ya know, it's quite interesting, the things you can come across on the internet while surfing around.  When I started on computers they were nothing but DOS programs... little green dots of binary code on a black screen.  (I thought they were just a fad... silly me!)  That was twenty-five-ish years ago that I first touched one.  About ten years ago, I actually got a laptop (my first computer) and learned how they worked and really got into the whole thing.... including how to build my own!  But "surfing" wasn't my objective.  I didn't know how to "surf" the web... it just didn't make sense to me.  If I wanted to know something, I just looked it up.  Why would I randomly click on anything?!

Ahhh, but there's a whole world out there that most people never see (nor would they probably care to, but that's another story) and wouldn't see if they didn't surf around the net.  ("Surf around the net"??  Now a few decades ago, that would have brought up a much different image in my mind than it does now!)


So, I'm trying to get caught up with my Facebook crap... er.... stuff.... friends... farmville.... whatever.... and come across a comment from an old friend.  He has a link, so I click on it.  It takes me to his blog and I read.  It's actually interesting and he has some other links that I click on and before you know it, I've found a whole mindless menagerie of things that I had no idea were out there.  Some people have nothing better to do than put these things together... and then again... maybe they do, but are avoiding them.  Not sure what the reason is for some of the things I find, but they are, at the very least, mildly interesting... others are "bookmark" worthy IMHO.

I dare to share them here....

Where the Hell is Matt?
(I came across this a while back and just remembered it while I was typing this blog.  It's quite interesting if you check out his story and how he got started on this journey.  Don't forget to watch the video!)
