Flurricane Warning!

Increasing cyclonic bands of showers and an unstable warm front indicate this is the perfect puppistorm!

Be prepared for the devastating eye wall.

Thanks for wetting our whistle, Will L. See more of the unseen!

Encore Presentayshe: Let’s Go for a Catwalk

Since 2008, two French hikers have chronicled their trek from Miami, FL to the tip of South America, a journey of 15,000km (about 9,320 miles) through 13 countries.

But what elevates this hike down a hemisphere straight into the Cuteosphere is the third member of the team: A stray kitten who joined them in Louisiana.

Hup, two, three, four, Sender-Inner Keri F. See all the cat-trekking action over at Turn of the World!

It’s Sotterday Night

…is the perfect time to snorgle up to your loved one, pull up the water covers, and catch some Zzzzzs.

Popover Sometime

Hullo, what’s this then? Well, well, making popovers are we? (hovers about “helpfully“)
Make sure your batter is fluffy now, mm-hmmm.

Then fill the cup up to the ears.

Avoid popover flop over – once they’re in the oven – no peeking!

Voila! The puffiest popovers simply must be served immediately!

Thanks for pudding up with us, Padme Hamidala and Susan G.!

Feeding Time

Now, let’s see… You get some duck food, and you get some duck food, and you get some duck food (wow, I feel just like Oprah here!)…

Well, that was fun. I wonder what’s for lunch?

Could somebody get Slurpy McSlurpersons here a straw? Maybe an orange peeler? Actually, one of those electric juicers would be useful…

Carmaggedon Outta Here!

From Long Beach up to Lancaster
No creature that’s alive
Knows not the dire disaster
That awaits the 405.


This weekend, in Los Ahn-ga-lees
A vital freeway closes
And brings the region to its knees
With gridlock, one supposes.


The thought of driving where you like
Will seem absurd and risible.
So Angelinos, ride a bike
Even if it’s just invisible.
