I love these so so much. I've always strongly held the belief that octopi are extraterrestrials. Hands down. So I will be watching the video! I love the idea of audience participation. Keep these coming!

My parents always said "colder than a well diggers auger". I love when I hear others use old time euphemisms. It brings me home and makes me all fuzzy inside. ☺️

Maui Jim readers made me say Ooooooh!!! Out loud!! OOL? I’m so ordering those!

I can’t eat Octopus anymore because they are way too sentient and also probably aliens. (Best to stay on their good side!) But I do name our pigs things like Tamale and Chuleta because if I don’t I just want to keep them as pets forever and I have a lot of mouths to feed! But we only raise 2 a year for Christmas now because they basically act like dogs if you let them. So we only eat meat that we have raised with love, for special occasions.

Here’s a great song on one of my all time favourite albums that has a great Colder than a Well Diggers Ass reference:

And I will have to check out that podcast because I haven’t heard of it! So thanks!

Sign me up to share cool things! I love to pollinate!

I'm definitely intrigued by the tea medicine book! I drink tea every morning and it really is a mindfulness/self care process for me!

Thank you beautiful people! 💗 As always wonderful suggestions, inspiration, and chuckles...Tyler, your mother and mine must have been separated at birth, because Kenny G and Michael Bolton live in my head forever thanks to Mom. Yes to all things science, and if you ever want to have a conversation about consciousness, it's one of my favorite topics. The octopus maze video was amazing! Seriously, not only did I learn something or lots of somethings, but I also got a huge tip on Crunch Box, which my nephews are going to love for their birthdays.

I haven't played Where Should We Begin, but in my household we have the Before or After? (historic timelines) and How Did You Know That? (random trivia questions like, "Does a rhino have a tail? or "What's the most productive workday of the week?" trivia games from Hugge and the What Would You Do? (moral and ethical dilemmas) and Family Edition Table Topics conversation starter cubes, all of which are in the same vein and lead to wonderful conversations. I particularly love the Table Topics, which are fun during dinners with my son or great for dinner parties, because they're just question cards, as opposed to playing an actual game. You don't really know your friends until you've asked hard ethical questions. 😉

Have a beautiful weekend! 😘
