Let's shake on it! It's a deal! ..I didn't know if I should have posted this under art/photography (artsy fartsy) or animals (our little friends) This picture is amazing though!
(VERY top of my bucket list!) Diver's extraordinary encounter with 50ft humpback whale. This is the unbelievable moment a diver came face to face with a 50ft female humpback whale, as she swam in the South Pacific......and they exchanged a high five! :)
I want to go scuba diving in the ocean now.
High fives were invented here. #DowhatyoulikeUSA Not furry but a friend =)
Dec 2005 headline of the San Francisco Chronicle ~ Female humpback whale who had become entangled in a spiderweb of crab traps and also had hundreds of yards of line rope wrapped around her body, tail, torso and a line tugging in her mouth. A fisherman spotted her just east of the Farallon Islands and radioed an environmental group for help. The rescue team arrived and determined that the only way to save her was to dive in and untangle her. They eventually freed her. By: Guardians of the Sea
Bucket list - scuba dive with blue whales I've dreamed of this many times and would the best experience ever
Eep! Too cute :)

Best friends til' the end. We need to more to help protect these little defenseless guys. Donate to the HSUS to raise funds to protect these babies before they are gone forever. Seal skin and seal pup fur should be illegal around the world but it's not. Who would think of hurting these sweet faces?

baked zucchini with mozzarella. easy side dish. Always looking for low carb options!
Baked Zucchini with Mozzarella | Real Mom Kitchen by David Lebovitz The zucchini craze has begun at my house! My zucchini plant know has zucchini. In the past few days, I know have 4 zucchini sitting on my counter waiting to have something done with them. The other day one of my good blogging friends , Jamie from Jamie Cooks It Up, posted one of her favorite zucchini recipe so I had to give it a try. It is simple and easy plus so tasty. Baked Zucchini with Mozzarella 2 medium sized (or about 5 small) zucchini Johnny’s Garlic Spread & Seasoning (I found it at Costco or Sam’s) salt 2 C shredded mozzarella cheese (thought I had mozzarella but I didn’t so I used a bled of Monterrey and cheddar and I didn’t measure the cheese, just put on what looked good) 1. Slice your zucchini up into 1/2 inch rings. 2. Lay them out flat on a large cookie sheet. Sprinkle with Johnny’s Garlic Seasoning and a bit of salt. 3. Bake in the oven at 350 for about 10-15 minutes or until crisp tender. 4. Take the hot pan out of the oven and sprinkle the zucchini with cheese. Turn the oven to broil, throw that cookie sheet back into the oven and let the cheese get all bubbly and a bit browned. This should only take about 3-5 minutes. Be careful here. Broiling things in the oven can get out of control in a fast hurry. (my trick for broiling is to not move the rack up, I just keep it in the middle of the oven and things are less likely to burn. It may take a minute longer, but no burnt food)
cant wait to try this Baked Zucchini with Mozzarella (Seems like a good low carb option)

Take your bananas apart when you get home from the store. If you leave them connected at the stem, they ripen faster. Store your opened chunks of cheese in aluminum foil. It will stay fresh much longer and not mold. Peppers with 3 bumps on the bottom are sweeter and better for eating. Peppers with 4 bumps on the bottom are firmer and better for cooking.

Take your bananas apart when you get home from the store. If you leave them connected at the stem, they ripen faster. Store your opened chunks of cheese in aluminum foil. It will stay fresh much longer and not mold. Peppers with 3 bumps on the bottom are sweeter and better for eating. Peppers with 4 bumps on the bottom are firmer and better for cooking. Add a teaspoon of water when frying ground beef. It will help pull the grease away from the meat. To really make scrambled eggs or omelets rich add a couple of spoonfuls of sour cream, cream cheese, or heavy cream in and then beat them up. For a cool brownie treat, make brownies as directed. Melt Andes mints in double broiler and pour over warm brownies. Let set for a minty frosting. Add garlic immediately to a recipe if you want a light taste of garlic, and at the end of the recipe if you want a stronger taste of garlic. Leftover snickers bars from Halloween make a delicious dessert. Simply chop them up with the food chopper. Peel, core and slice a few apples. Place them in a baking dish and sprinkle the chopped candy bars over the apples. Bake at 350 for 15 minutes. Serve alone or with vanilla ice cream. Heat up leftover pizza in a nonstick skillet on top of the stove, set heat to med-low and heat till warm. This keeps the crust crispy. Easy Deviled Eggs: Put cooked egg yolks in a zip lock bag. Seal, mash till they are all broken up. Add remainder of ingredients, reseal, keep mashing it up mixing thoroughly, cut the tip of the baggy, squeeze mixture into egg. Just throw bag away when done easy clean up. Expanding Frosting: When you buy a container of cake frosting from the store, whip it with your mixer for a few minutes. You can double it in size. You get to frost more cake/cupcakes with the same amount. You also eat less sugar and calories per serving. Reheating refrigerated bread: To warm biscuits, pancakes, or muffins that were refrigerated, place them in a microwave with a cup of water. The increased moisture will keep the food moist and help it reheat faster. Newspaper weeds away: Plant your plants in the ground, work the nutrients in your soil. Then wet newspapers, put layers around the plants overlapping as you go, cover with mulch, and forget about weeds. Broken Glass: Use a wet cotton ball or Q-tip to pick up the small shards of glass you can't see easily. No More Mosquitoes: Place a dryer sheet in your pocket. It will keep the mosquitoes away. To keep squirrels from eating your plants, sprinkle your plants with cayenne pepper. The cayenne pepper doesn't hurt the plant and the squirrels won't come near it. Flexible vacuum: To get something out of a heat register or under the fridge add an empty paper towel roll or empty gift wrap roll to your vacuum. It can be bent or flattened to get in narrow openings. Pin a small safety pin to the seam of your slip to eliminate static cling. It works; you will not have a clingy skirt or dress. Same thing works with slacks that cling when wearing panty hose. Place pin in seam of slacks. Before you pour sticky substances into a measuring cup, fill with hot water. Dump out the hot water, but don't dry cup. Next, add your ingredient, such as peanut butter, and watch how easily it comes right out. De-fog your windshield: Buy a chalkboard eraser and keep it in the glove box of your car When the windows fog, rub with the eraser. Re-opening envelopes: If you seal an envelope and then realize you forgot to include something inside, just place your sealed envelope in the freezer for an hour or two. It unseals easily. Use your hair conditioner to shave your legs. It's cheaper than shaving cream and leaves your legs really smooth. It's also a great way to use up the conditioner you bought but didn't like when you tried it in your hair. Goodbye Fruit Flies: To get rid of pesky fruit flies, take a small glass, fill it 1/2' with Apple Cider Vinegar and 2 drops of dish washing liquid; mix well. flies are drawn to the cup and gone forever. Wash your dryer filter: dryer sheets cause a film over filter that will burn out the heating unit. You can't SEE the film, but it's there. It builds up on your clothes and on your lint screen. The best way to keep your dryer working for a long time (and to keep your electric bill lower) is to take the filter out and wash it with hot soapy water and an old toothbrush at least every six months. wow good to know stuff
IDEAS WORTH CONSIDERING... Some pretty cool tips and tricks
Am I the only person who hasn't heard of "cooler corn"? As an obsessive food nerd, you'd expect that I would have at least heard of it, but over the weekend I was blind-sided by the simple genius of this method for cooking loads of corn on the cob perfectly. I was hepped to it while visiting my family in Maine . Short story: We like corn on the cob. And with eight adults at the table, that means a couple of dozen ears. We would have used the lobster pot to cook them all, but the lobster...

Am I the only person who hasn't heard of "cooler corn"? I'm an obsessive food nerd, so you'd expect that I would have at least heard of it! Here's how: Get a cooler and wipe it clean, then fill it with the shucked ears of corn. Next, pour kettles of boiling water over the corn and close the lid Wait about 30 minutes and wah-lah ...perfectly cooked corn!!! And I'm told that the corn will remain at the perfect level of doneness for a couple of hours. GENIUS I say...pure GENIUS!!! Perfect for camping or big BBQ parties! I'm going to go buy me another cooler!!!!!
From Peapod: Cooler corn! Genius method for cooking corn on the cob. While visiting family in Maine... we needed to cook a dozen ears of corn. The lobster pot was busy steaming lobster. My sister took out the Coleman cooler, wiped it clean, then filled with the shucked ears. Pour two kettles-full of boiling water over the corn & close the top. 30 minutes later, the corn is perfectly cooked & can “stay” for a couple of hours, it’s an old camping recipe.
