Soup and the First Selfies

      Jack and I were walking through the streets of Rome without thinking about soup at all, then we saw this.

Soup of the Day

     No way we could pass that up.  We even had seconds and seriously contemplated thirds!  Tasty!

     After the soup, we made a very surprising discovery.  Ancient Rome was the birthplace of the selfie!  Here is the first and second ever selfies captured in action by fast working sculptors.

                      The first selfie                       The second selfie

     I always knew the Romans were ahead of their time, but wow!  What a country! 

     Now you know why Mary Margaret is always looking for Adult Day Care for me and why she rolls her eyes A LOT.  

Daddy Day Care

     A little humor and some uplifting music: Cantaloop (US3 and Flip Fantasia), Happy (Pharrell), Mr. Pinstripe (Big Bad Voodoo Daddy) and the best, Smooth (Santana and Rob Thomas) made my day.  Pharrell even inspired me to run three miles today.

Two questions:

  1. Are you rolling your eyes or did I get a little chuckle?
  2.  What music gets you moving?  I need more music in my life!
