Frankie Limeman

Whilst concocting one of my "perfect" Margaritas, I noticed the face of Frankie Limeman suddenly appearing!

Gianni's "Perfect" Margarita:
2 shots Cuervo Gold
1 Shot Triple Sec
Juice of one fresh lime (Never a mix)

Chill the margarita glass with ice then discard the ice to a cocktail shaker.
Wet the rim of the glass with a lime wedge and dip rim in kosher salt to coat.
Add ingredients to a cocktail shaker filled with ice, stir gently. 
Pour the margarita into the glass and drop in the wedge of lime.
Enjoy! And, have a Happy New Year!

One of the best things about Christmas being over is,
we don't have to see previews of the film "Elf" again until next year!

Seeing Eye Dog for Muslim Women

I can't take credit for this...

You ask, "How can the dog see anything with both eyes covered?"
According to the author's blog at Planck's Constant,
"Muslim women don't need no stinking guide dog", 
because they're not allowed to walk around unescorted anyway, there's always someone to help them navigate.

Fire Breathing Crocodile

Anonymous NM Bill captured this moody weather over the mountains just before a storm.
Looking closely, one could make out a crocodile with fire in its eye and mouth!

White Christmas?

We got our first big snowfall Saturday.
There are many jokes about Cleveland's weather. A popular one is,
"If you don't like Cleveland's weather, just wait an hour."
According to the 5-day forecast, we should get rain the next three days with a high of near 60 on Wednesday!
Go figure.

Lemon Fish

This puffy vertebrate characterized by its face resembling a sunburst, glides through very cold fresh water
and can easily be caught by adding sugar to the water.
Although bitter tasting on its own, the sugar and a little ice makes a delectable
and refreshing drink, especially during the hot summer months.

Here's Looking At You Kid

Fellow blogger and good friend Kim of the Lakewood Daily Snap was just about to enjoy lunch
when she noticed her bangers and mash looking up at her!
Being dutiful, she immediately forwarded the image to Seeing Things.
I'm guessing lunch tasted as good as it was looking.

"Look Ma, No Legs!"

These children are standing waist deep in cracks in the earth known as "Black Dirt".
This phenomenon occurs when this highly fertile soil goes through a long dry spell or drought.
Since this soil is nutrient rich with organic material it has a tendency to smell bad in the hot dry months.
Once wet weather returns, the cracks close up again.
