drooling!

while this isn't fiber art related it is absolutly inspirational. one of the daughters of some of my closest friends and her fiancee are on a 6 month trip of a lifetime. they have a wonderful website that her brother built for her and have been posting the most delightful descriptions of their adventure and photos that are drop dead gorgeous. they started out in africa, and are in egypt now. the photos are priceless. i sit here every few days and just drool. if this keeps up i will need a new keyboard soon!

check them out here. i've taken the liberty of grabbing one of today's shots.. which makes me laugh everytime i look at it!




i went to see the bucket list over the weekend and of course loved it. just watching jack nicholson alone is entertaining as all get out and of course you can't watch it and not think about making your own bucket list. so far i've got a list of museums i want to see that's embarassingly long! lots of travel: greece, egypt, rome, turkey, to name a few... and an assortment of other random things...

and right now i'm checking out this site *43 things* to eavesdrop on others' lists.

so what's on your list??

I was reading a bit about camels yesterday for my job and learned that they crowd together to keep cool.

per http://www.arab.net/camels/
Camels do not pant, and they perspire very little. Humans start to sweat when the outside temperature rises above the normal body temperature of 37¡C, but the camel has a unique body thermostat. It can raise its body temperature tolerance level as much as 6¡C before perspiring, thereby conserving body fluids and avoiding unnecessary water loss. No other mammal can do this. Because the camel's body temperature is often lower than air temperature, a group of resting camels will even avoid excessive heat by pressing against each other.
