With Germany gasping for air in the sweltering heat, expected to reach as much as 100┬░F today or tomorrow, I prefer to remember my birthday weekend of just two weeks ago, when I had the my feet in the sand and the sea breeze in my hair :-)

Wishing everyone a Happy Independence Day!

@iggy I love the South (in theory, and not including the redneck racism), but the climate is not for me.
iggy:
You know, the only thing about the climate here that I like is that it doesn't snow much and when it does everything shuts down. I don't have to worry about having to drive to work in a blizzard here, unlike when I lived in New Jersey. But I honestly hate the heat. You can always put more layers on. You can only take off so many before you're arrested for public indecency. 

Is it just me, or does @drave have a totally succulent (and I hope this means what I think it means) set of Hot Lips?

Ist mir auch schon aufgefallen, allerdings w├╝rde ich pers├Ânlich eher verf├╝hrerisch (also: seductive) sagen. :)
babal:
Perfect lips *-*

baalseraph:
Sehr gute Auswahl! :)
jeh:

Da muss man unserer lieben Bundesregierung tats├Ąchlich mal ernsthaft empfehlen sich an den USA zu orientieren. Ich h├Ątte nicht gedacht, dass ich das wirklich mal sage (bzw. schreibe)... ;)

I suppose that's true for virtually all of the girls (and some of the guys) on here ;-)

I suppose not a lot of people even know the name of Mary Blair, but she was a unique contributor to some classic Disney animated movies and theme park attractions. Working mostly as a concept artist, she created fantastic colorful landscapes.

Here's a short (00:01:28) video tribute to her (and Walt) presented this year at the Annecy animation festival in France.

Ich bin kein gro├čer Disney Fan, aber Mary Blair kenne selbst ich. :)

@dave11111 I was just starting out, thus the empty flipchart...it was about knowledge management.

No wonder the chart was empty.  (Sorry. Couldn't resist.)

I guess it's not really the same thing as a marathon, but I kind of pride myself on the fact that I did walk 42 kilometers (some 25 miles) this past week... 7 times around the Tempelhof Airfield - true, spread over three days and not quite at running speed, but still ;-) With our car in rehab (see previous post), I may have to walk...
