Visited some family in San Antonio this past weekend. Some of them told me that, like Austin has the phrase of “Keep Austin Weird”, San Antonio has adopted the phrase, “Keep San Antonio Lame”!

What the heck??? 😉

This was forwarded once again to me in an email, but I thought I would share it with my readers of my blogsite.  You have to see it to believe it because it is sooo beautifully well done.

There is an awesome dance, called the Thousand-Hand Guanyin, that is making the rounds across the net and traveling around the countries. Considering the tight coordination required, their accomplishment is nothing short of amazing, even if they were not all deaf.

Yes, you read correctly.

All 21 of the dancers are completely deaf. Relying only on signals from trainers at the four corners of the stage, these extraordinary dancers deliver a visual spectacle that is at once intricate and stirring. Its first major international debut was in Athens…at the closing ceremonies for the 2004 Paralympics. But it had long been in the repertoire of the China Disabled People’s Performing Art Troupe and had traveled to more than 40 countries.

Its lead dancer is 29 year old Tai Lihua, who has a BA from the Hubei Fine Arts Institute.

The video was recorded in Beijing during the Spring Festival celebrations in 2005.

Enjoy!! 😀

I certainly hope so.  Texas has been aggressive against sites, such as MySpace.com, to provide them with the Sex Offenders on their sites, especially after having to sue them for their accountability after some children were attacked by sexual predators when they went to meet them in person.  I am sure that will only make the sex offenders try to be a little more clever in hiding their identities, but at least there will be some cooperation from MySpace to hand over the names and identities used on the sites so that the authorities can crack down on these offenders who are not allowed to be on the computer sites as part of their agreements to be living among society.

Will this completely protect our children on such sites from all sexual predators? Not likely from all as some have merely not been caught — yet.  However, any steps moving in aggressive measures  is certainly a pro-active measure indeed and holds those sites accountable!

Everyone is getting in on the web cam thing these days, even a cheddar cheese factory in Germany (West Country Farmhouse Cheesemakers) that has set up a web cam in their shed to watch the mold grow on some cheese, which is a process that helps the cheese to age to perfection.

YouTube has taken the opportunity to do a time lapse video of the watching the cheddar cheese growing from 0-3 months, see below:

While watching the cheddar cheese mold at an ever so slow rate of speed, it is a great marketing gimmick to get folks to their site. I wonder how their sales are because of the draws just to see the CheddarVision.tv!?!

This first clip is from Coronado High School for a Environmental Awareness Informercial Project. A bit silly at times, but I think that they drive their point across:

and, not so entertaining videos as prepared by Contra Costa Mosquito & Vector Control District Public Affairs Manager Deborah Bass who gives insight into how this virus, which currently has no human vaccine, can impact the health of the public.
