Monday Links For The Week … Cats … Beards …. & Chickens

Hello everyone … hope you have all had a lovely weekend … it’s been a bit hectic around our way … just lots of little things to get sorted and finished up before visitors start arriving at the end of this week … so excited to see friends and family from the UK …

Today also happens to be the two year anniversary of our move to Dubai … time flies when you have fun …

Anyway here are some links to thing’s I’ve been enjoying this last week … a lot of animal related content down here … I guess it was that kind of a week … hope you enjoy …

  1. WONDER-WOMAN SOCKS … they even come with a CAPE!!!!!
  2. BENOIT COURTI … Love these pictures … very striking black and white photos …
  3. TEXTS FROM MITTENS THE CAT … much like Text From Dog … but from a cat … I love these so much … Mittens Emergency Message
  4. TAKE MY JUNK … a brilliant website for those based in the UAE and wanting to get rid of unwanted furniture … these guys come along and remove the stuff for you … clean it up and sell or give them away to low income households …
  5. 5 THINGS YOU DIDN’T KNOW ABOUT CURVES … this is for all you photography/ photoshop people … some interesting facts and tips …
  6. CATS KNOCKING SH*T OVER … sometimes cats know exactly what to do to wind you up … I have lost track of the number of times I’ve woken up to Hugo having knocked something off the shelf in our headboard and onto my head … he also loves pens on tables … another favourite of his … Derek thankfully is not quite so bad at that … 
  7. MR INCREDIBEARD … this is actually insane … some of those beard designs are actually functional …
  8. SAFARI PARK IMPOSES DRESS CODE TO STOP VISITORS SCARING THE ANIMALS … apparently wearing animal print to the zoo is not recommended … my favourite line in the article was this … Movement is also a key trigger. Big cats will start getting interested if someone limps past their enclosure because they look weak. Possibly the worst thing you could do is limp past the lion or tiger enclosure in a zebra print outfit.”
  9. MERCEDES BENZ MAGIC BODY CONTROL … ok so this is a car advert … but the chickens are actually amazing … apparently scientists are not 100 percent sure why chickens and other birds bob their heads when they walk yet manage to keep them stable so well … the general consensus is that the birds use this technique for image stabilization … alot like how we move our eyes to compensate for the motion of our heads … Mercedes-Benz uses chickens in this advertisement to sell their vehicles‘ stable rides … 
  10. 24 GROOMS BLOWN AWAY BY THEIR BEAUTIFUL BRIDES … this is just too cute … so adorable to see the Grooms expressions in the images … everyone is always so focused on the Bride and what she looks like … but these pictures really tell an amazing story …

Anyway that is it for this week …

Till next time …
