It’s Friday – Relax your Brain

It’s Friday, my friends.  Another long week is in the books.  I had to work (shudder) and wear makeup (sigh).  And shoes (slump)  So let’s rest our tired little brains (and feet) and enjoy some quick snippets of pure fun.

First, a drink from my blogging friend, Mr. Bitters.  Come on, we all need a bartending blogging buddy, don’t we?

The Blue Hawaiian – a blended drink that features a pineapple slice and a tropical blue color helped feed the Hawaiian craze of the 1960’s. Elvis Presley may have also had a little to do with that as well. This drink also uses a bartender’s best friend –Blue Curaco. Why is it a bartenders best friend? Because when someone sees a blue drink, they want one as well. Everytime I have ever created a blue drink, I have made two or three right after for other guests.

What you will need:

• 1 oz Blue Curaco
• 1 oz light rum
• 1 oz cream of cocomut
• 2 oz pineapple juice
• 1 cherry
• 1 slice of pineapple

1. Add one half cup of ice to your blender
2. Add Blue Curaco
3. Add light rum
4. Add cream of coconut
5. Add pineapple juice
6. Blend
7. Add contents to highball glass
8. Garnish with cherry and pineapple

See, don’t you feel better already?


Thanks to Harry from The Dribbling Pensioner for bringing this video to my attention.  First load it, then start it and close your eyes.

Cool, no?  Well, maybe if you’re getting 15 inches of rain this weekend, you may not find it too exciting, but hey try to keep a sense of humor, okay?


The next video is from  fellow blogger Robyn Michele Levy , talented artist and author of the upcoming book “Most of Me: Surviving my Medical Meltdown”.  Robin’s illustrations, animations and videos always make me smile (and sometimes bring a tear).  This one is about her relationship with her dad.

I love her flying pig animation and intend to win her contest – so don’t even think about entering it.  I mean it.


Perhaps this Mama Duck should have listened to evacuation orders…

I love how she regrouped – reminds me of the many talented blogmoms I’ve met recently, working hard to keep it all together.


Then, because I do love a good horse on the beach video, this one is for my Emma – first grandchild and beautiful horsewoman.


Now I’m going to put up my feet, raise a glass, and pray for the safety of all in the path of Irene.  Good night.

  1. Great combo – especially the blue pina colada, tropical rain, good book (that I’ve made note of), and Willie Nelson singing Irene, Good Night (that was a deliberate word placement, wasn’t it?)

  2. I guess the drink of choice should have been a Hurricane. And Good Night, Irene – perfect. Thanks.

  3. The ducks. Oh my gosh! The ducks!
    Happy weekend, K8.
    And may all be safe in the path of Irene.

    Oh that poor mama duck!

    I loved the horses running on the beach – so majestic and beautiful. A very calming video.

  5. Hey! Robyn Michele Levy here…Thanks for sharing my video with your audience. I am just putting the final touches on a new animated video and it should be posted by next week. Have a great weekend,

Talk to me.
