Seek High Ground

Did somebody say there’s a hurlacane a-comin’? I’ll just be up here keepin’ high and dry thankyouverymuch.


Oliver knows how to evacuteate, Stephanie F.

Side Eye Alert!

I do yoga every day, meditate regularly, get frequent massages and plenty of sleep. But still, I wanna smack somebody.


See, it’s nothing purrsonal, Liza V.

How Now, Dow?

Well, if I’m going to ride this roller-coaster market, I’d better do some reading…


Let’s see… Making the Most of Bull Markets, see page 92… Surviving Bear Markets, page 107… Investment Tips for Bad Times, page 210… for End Times, page 666…


Heck, I might as well hide my money under the mattress and hope for the best…


Sell, Dorie H., sell!

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.

Hold on for the ride, sender-inner Sarah G. Photo by her mom, Christine A.!

A cat is a temple. Temple of Doom.

One of life’s great challenges is to make a cat lose its cool.

Many have tried. It usually ends badly for the hooman.


Get a grip, Blair. You have your reputation to maintain.

The Funfair Tilt-A-Flip Tooth Chipper

Ohhhhh, we zigged when we shoulda zagged.

“Please remain seated and wait until the ride has come to a complete stop before exiting.”


Let’s go again, Hannah!

Let’s Play Charades

One word. OK.

A song title. This’ll be easy.

Umm, Freebird! No? Umm, Crazy! No? Umm, Help??? Umm…Wipeout???
OMG what are you doooooing?!!!

“Go ahead and JUMP!”

Thanks to Ant for bringing this heart attack video to our attention!
