Lost dog, please re-blog. My friend’s neighbor’s beloved dog ran away on Christmas Eve. Look at that face. I can’t imagine what both Hunny and her mom are going through. Any help getting the word out is greatly appreciated.

LOOK AT THIS SWEETFACE.
Lost in the W170s near Amsterdam.

FYI - in New York City.



Well, I live on the wrong continent to have seen Hunny, but I know some of you followers reside in the States, so… every little helps, I hope.

The Swedes have a phrase, “Ska vi fika?”, which translates literally as: “Shall we have a coffee break?” But it denotes an awful lot more than that. It’s a heartily embraced cultural tradition involving friends, coffee and a cosy corner in a warm cafe.
Gothenburg is a cold and windy coastal city, sitting at the mouth of the Gota river, equidistant from Copenhagen and Oslo. Its history is of trade and heavy industry – Volvo and Ericsson have factories in the area. A network of canals, created by Dutch city planners in the 17th century, crisscross the city, leaving big open areas for winds to whistle down. So the locals know a thing or two about keeping warm.

Pete Postelthwaite has died, at the tender age of 64. 

This makes me sad. Rest in peace, Pete. :(

The Ruins of Detroit, Photographs of a City In Decline


Wow, I love abandoned places. And the fact that they’re in the midst of a town still alive and in use makes them even more intriguing. See the full gallery here.






"Q: Which Actors Have Died the Most?
A: Here Lies 15 of Hollywood’s Most Killed Stars”


Fun facts, though I doubt it’s entierly correct; feels like lots of actors whose characters tend to bite the dust are missing.

Yet Another Unfortunate Incident of the Day: More dead blackbirds, this time in Louisiana:

Hundreds of dead and dying birds littered a quarter-mile stretch of highway in Pointe Coupee Parish on Monday as motorists drove over and around them.

State biologists are trying to determine what led to the deaths of the estimated 500 red-winged blackbirds and starlings on La. 1 just down the road from Pointe Coupee Central High School.

I’m not one to jump to conclusions, but we’re all going to die.

[theawl.]

Earlier: 5,000 dead birds; 100,000 dead fish.

 This is bad. WTF.

Sign of the pending apocalypse? Time to get supplied.


And during last night, between 50 and 100 birds were found dead, just lying on the ground, in Falköping, Sweden. I’d be lying if I said I wasn’t feeling spooked. :O
