Chinese firefighters jump rope


These Chinese firefighters in Shanghai are jump rope masters.  You will be amazed.  This reminds me of a sort of game we played in college called Chinese fire drill.  At a red light, we'd all jump out of the car and run around the car, then hop back in.

crochet some Easter bunnies


It's time to start crocheting these little bunnies if you want a basket-full ready for Easter.  I made a pink one for each of my five granddaughters and a blue one for my only grandson.  They measure about 3 1/2 inches, and each took me about an hour to complete.  I think it is most fun to make one in the presence of the child you are making it for, if you are so lucky as to have them with you.  Please come back and post a photo of your bunnies below in "comments" so we can all enjoy them. 
Pattern here.

woman annoys bear


Why do I find the woman in this video so annoying?  Is it her shrill, non-stop voice?  Is it her inane choice of words?  Is it because she seems to be doing the filming herself?  Please make her go away so the bear can have some peace and quiet!
