When our kids were small we took them to Sea World of Ohio. I absolutely fell in love with the otters. Wanted a pet otter. Yeah, that would fly. Years later, I'm always happy to waste (too much) time watching otter videos.

Shedd Aquarium in Chicago just got this little orphaned otter. The video is of them teaching to swim. I dare you to watch this and not crack a smile.

As some of you may know, I used to do stand up comedy. Something that I would have used for comedy material occurred today.

When I visited mum today ( it was one of her better days), an organised band of singers were visiting the wards (accompanied by a guitarist). They were singing "God will take care of you"...and were giving benevolent smiles. Mum liked it. The thought occurred to me that if they saw someone had flatlined, they may quickly switch over to singing "knock, knock knocking on heaven's door"

In the same vein...I was caring for a co-worker's Mother at the End-of-Life. Her Mother had just died when the co-worker's cell phone rang...her ringtone..."Another One Bites The Dust".

Reminds me of Rose Nyland (Betty White) and the episode where "he bought the farm." The man she had in her bed had died.

I bought my first bag of Brach's Peppermint Christmas Nougats of the season. Look forward to them every year. :-)

Like me and my Easter Peeps. I have a friend that finds the package that only has two in them. That is plenty for me.

I love the Brach's caramel with the cream centers. I can't stop eating them when I start, so I never by them.

What is your favorite candy bar? My is 5th Avenue. They are hard to find here were I live. I see you can buy them on Amazon but I don't want to buy that many.

Mounds and York Peppermint Patty. Of the two I would choose the Mounds over the YPP. The only problem with that bar is that it is so sweet, that I have trouble finishing the first bar. I am not used to eating sweets and when I do, I can taste the sugar immediately. It is like I had eaten a five pound bag of sugar. That is why I eat only one each year.
