Positive, Ruby Tuesday, Roomful...

Sparks Of Insanity By Vinny "Bond" Marini Tuesday, July 28, 2009

OK, found out about this over at my good friend TRAVIS of "Trav's Thoughts" and even found out he did the button for this great idea.

Now the idea itself came from a 12-year old girl! She is "The Diva Daughter" of JENNIFER of "Dust Bunny Hostage".

You can click the link and head over to the post which explains it all.

Hey...POSITIVE is a most excellent thing!

All you need to do is click on the graphic to get to the rest of the RUBY TUESDAY posts...
On Independence Day, Nancy and I went down to her sister's for a wonderful day and Bar-B-Que. I snapped off a few pictures of these bushes that they have on their property.

Of course, I had no idea what they were. They were just colorful and the textures caught my eye. What did not catch my eye in many shots was that I had not adjusted for depth of field and the backgrounds are blurry. And I was not even drinking!

So, I grabbed this shot:

I tweaked it a bit and call it "Exploding Crype Myrtle" (because that is what they are called my Nancy informed me):


This week on Dr. Blogstein’s
Radio Happy Hour

Actor Adrian Paul is best known for his role on the television series
Highlander: The Series as Duncan MacLeod.

Since 1997, Paul has worked extensively for the charity organization he founded, The PEACE (Protect, Educate, Aid Children Everywhere) Fund. The PEACE Fund focuses on small, under-funded and hard-working charities who are determined to make a positive difference to the lives of children living in extraordinarily difficult circumstances.

Jason Sadler of IWearYourShirt.com is spending 2009 as a human billboard and on Tuesday July 28th, he’ll be wearing his Got Blogstein? T-shirt.

Sadler has been selling the upper-half of his wardrobe (shirts). He’s selling every day of the year at face value, so January 1 was $1 and December 31 is $365.

Since Tuesday is Got Blogstein? Day, Sadler will spend the day blogging, twittering, facebooking and making videos all about Dr. Blogstein’s Radio Happy Hour and all in his Got Blogstein? T-shirt. Then, he’ll spend the evening as our special guest co-host (which may explain the frightened look on his face!)

Bill Bradford is co-inventor of the Johnny Light, a soft green night-light, activated by a gravity switch when the toilet seat is raised.

The former nuclear power plant engineer began by selling from his car trunk and at women’s conferences, talking up ways to teach men and children how to solve the long-running “battle of the sexes in the bathroom — the seat-up vs. seat-down controversy, and to help women avoid the embarrassing night-time “splashdown” that sours relationships and creates “revenge” situations.

All that, plus:

Keeping with the RUBY theme...Roomful Of Blues from their debut THE 1st ALBUM...this song opens the show "Red, Hot & Blue"

  2. I've always been fond of crype myrtles. They are beautiful when in full bloom. Great RT photo.
    Isn't there a BBQ place called Red, Hot, & Blue? Love the song. Have a great day.

  3. Travis Says:
  4. Positive rocks!

    And those flowers are gorgeous.

  5. Happy Got Blogstein? Day, VinBo!

  6. ..those flowers look much like the flowers of the Craig's Myrtle tree out here in Sacramento...and yes, I want one of those terlet lights!...

  7. Jay Says:
  8. Positive Day? Uh .. okay, I guess. ;-)

  9. OMG. Did. You. Say. *gulp* Adrian PAUL??!!!!

    Sorry.....had to catch my breath there....*falls over from swooning*

    I'm okay!

  10. BeckEye Says:
  11. I never understood the whole seat up/seat down thing. To me, the only issue is that the toilet looks much uglier with the seat up. But seriously, if millions of women are too lazy to turn the stupid light on in the bathroom or at least check the seat position before sitting down, they deserve to fall in.

  12. Dianne Says:
  13. I love the badge Travis created, and it is a great idea

    your exploding flower shot is very cool

  14. Matt's gotta learn to spell. Have a great show.

  15. OK so I meant Trav. Oops...

  16. Bond Says:
  17. DRILLERAA: Not sure about the Bar-B-Q place

    TRAVIS: It does rock and thanks

    DOC: and to you

    PHFRANKIE: So is Craigs Myrtle related to Crype Myrtle?

    JAY: Glad to hear it

    DESERT: Iffen you call in I can get you on the air with him

    BECKEYE: Spoken like a woman who was never so tired she did not look and fell in

    DIANNE: It is a cool badge and thanks

    BUD: I spell BloGGosphere with two G's also...

  18. Tiggerlane Says:
  19. I had negative day yesterday - just wanted to cry all dang day! So I needed that today.

    BTW, you...the Music Maven...would probably know one of the songs we are playing at our next gig (I'd never heard it) by Cream: Can't Find My Way Home. Am I right?

  20. Bond Says:
  21. TIGGER: Sorry for the bad day.

    "C.F.M.W.B.H." is an Eric Clapton song actually done by Blind Faith.

  22. Patti Says:
  23. When one is late to commenting, one must always say "also" like something. Dang I'm always late.
    I also like the photo of the "Exploding Crype Myrtle"
    Jason does look scared. Poor guy. I hope the broadcast goes well.

    Ooooh I love "Can't Find My Way Back Home." I was a huge Cream fan, back in the 60s..

    The nightlight for the potty is very creative.

  24. TopChamp Says:
  25. That is a weird invention! Well I may have to listen back to this one to discover where on earth it came from and who bought it. I also loved Highlander.

    Love your Ruby Tues pic.

  26. Ralph Says:
  27. The flowers offer a brilliant ruby today. And, if I may, I don't fancy a neon green view of the bowl. Not at all natural!

  28. Travis Says:
  29. That's the cool thing about blog speak...one can make up new spellings all the time!

  30. Thanks for asking the luscious Adrian Paul my questions. Fun show!

  31. Starrlight Says:
  32. Exploding Crepe Myrtle sounds like a stomach bug :P

  33. jennifer Says:
  34. THANK YOU for posting the badge and the link. That just made my day and it's 1:31 AM... started off positive early!
