A bit of culture for you!!

If you like Tchaikovsky, you will really love this.

Forty students from the Jerusalem Academy of Music and Dance
 took a classical approach to the flashmob as they flashwaltzed 
Tchaikovsky's Waltz of the Flowers at the new 
Sarah Wetsman Davidson Hospital Tower in Jerusalem .

Doctors, patients and passers-by joined in the fun.

The surprise concert was part of Good Deeds Day,
 an annual event that  originated in Israel in 2007 
and now takes place in over 50 countries worldwide. 
On this day volunteers reach out to the less fortunate and the vulnerable.

The Academy students enjoyed the day so much
 that they have decided to schedule regular concerts
 at the hospital.
 Hadassah Medical  Organization treats over one million patients annually, 
without regard to race, religion or national origin.

I liked the older couple dancing to the music
 as well as that little girl in the wheel chair.
 Absolutely precious

Share the Force. My son was so into this. So into this. I stood in a lot of lines so he could see the latest Star Wars movie. Fond memories.

Around the world. Always a treat. Love that water park. Wow.

Koinophobia, I don't have that and never did. I'm happy about it too. I've had an exciting life and it continues to be awesome.

How cute with all those bears having a pool party. What a capture too.

Mind blowing info. I hadn't thought of these things in these terms. Mind blowing.

Loved the flash-waltz. Wow, that was amazing.

Did you know? Mostly I didn't know. Very interesting.

Those funny animals. Love these.

That cat door fail was funny. Smart cat.

That squirrel is way smarter than that cat.

Awww, the pig of happiness. Adorable and then some.

The dog dancing in the street was cute. He's got some great moves.

The beer dispensing system. Brilliant.

Rock and roll trivia. I didn't know any of this.

Loved the marriage proposal. That was very cool.

The 5 year olds reaction to becoming a big brother. He's really excited.

Odds and Ends... I had the same dinner. Take it or leave it.

Yikes on that crash test. Yikes.

Loved the news bloopers. You just never know what's going to happen.

I ain't voting for Monica Lewinsky's ex boyfriends wife either.

The speedboat fails. So sad. So sad. And some of them (a lot of them) created their own disasters. I couldn't watch all of it. I'm too much of a boater to watch these fools.

Another fine week of fun.

Have a fabulous day my friend. ☺
