Great Career Changes in History

Walt Disney often said his media empire “all started with a mouse.” But it almost never started at all. Strange as it may sound, Disney originally aspired to be an exterminator, with a novel business plan: training cats to hunt mice. The plan unraveled when Disney learned that cats already knew how, but not until he had created a series of elaborate training diagrams that would change his life — and film history — forever.

Today Is Fish Amnesty Day!

Quoting this page, “Fish Amnesty Day is a day to recognize fish as living animals with rights and in need of protection just the same as other vertebrates.”

With that said, how bout these little dudes from Cuteporter Katy G.! “My local Dorset Wildlife Trust posted this video of Bebeh Cuttlefish that they’ve reared and released into the world at Kimmeridge Bay.”

Home Alone (Updated!)

273603Great set of photos here from 123Inspiration.com. Finnish photographer Kai Fagerström took these photos for a book, called “The House In The Woods,” by Fagerström, Risto Rasa and Heikkie Willamo. They’re all abandoned houses in a Finnish forest.

(Update: The book seems very hard to find- that link indicates it should be available at the end of October.)
