Sometimes An Awesome Blog Takes A Serious Tone

Yet another blog from the comments section, please keep them coming!

Mom, Me and Alzheimer's is the everyday life of a woman who is caring for her mother who has Alzheimer's Disease.
My grandmother had this illness as well and it took it's toll, not only on her, but on my mother and her siblings as well. This blogger's story is in many ways similar to my own mother's.
Mom, if you are reading, I recommend this blog to you:


We're Really On To Something Here!

Friends, The Interweb Chain Of Happiness! is in full force! I'm getting recommendations from the folks whose blogs have been featured here, and now we're even getting recommendations in the comments!
Lydia, whose photography blog I featured a while back and who is the creator of the term Interweb Chain of Happiness!, has recommended the following blog:
Which is a fabulous blog full of design ideas, product inspiration and, how awesome is this: painting tips! (okay, so it's awesome to me, the home improvement girl).

Also, check out Lydia's other blog, which just happens to have a Your Blog Is Awesome! plug:

New Orleans and Art

If you don't know by now that New Orleans is the greatest place on the planet then I have not been persuasive enough in my arguments. So I offer you this fantastic blog, another recommendation, in fact.
Slimbolala is a blog with a little of everything, illustrations, art, photography, life stories, amusing parenting anecdotes and generally good storytelling. Did I mention that the blogger is in New Orleans and posts about this fact occasionally? I might have.
Check it out and keep reading, this blog has archives back to 2005!

Wall-E The World Traveler

I had planned to bring a photo of my dog, Penny, to Europe and photograph the photo at all of the tourist sites while there. Sadly, I did not have time to print out a suitable photo before going so this did not happen.
I've done something similar before with various objects, and friends of mine have done this too. I'm sure many of you have as well, but have you blogged about it?
Rebecca is a blogger whose very cool (and very hard, I know) job allows her to travel about and see many interesting places and things. She also has a traveling companion whom she takes almost daily photos of in these various locations. Her traveling companion is Wall-E, the lovable robot!
Very good photography too!

The Second Recommendation!

More animals! Cats this time. Adorable, yet slightly insane cats! Stories of an Innocent Owner of Mad Cats is simply tales (or tails?) of one man and the cats he has known through his life. And he has some adorable cats!
Please do read:

Our first recommendation!

Hello and sorry for the delay in posting.
This awesome blog is yet another fine example of smart blogging with out spite.
Diary of Mindless Minion Number 2,703 has great stories and great story telling, even when the stories are not the blogger's own. Current posts are all about trying to buy a farm house and the hitches she encounters along the way. Anyone who has ever bought, or lived in an old house would completely understand.
Read and follow!

How To Kill A Mockingbird and Other Shameful Searches

I've seen a few blogs now that show the silliness of Google's suggest feature, but what makes this one great is the commentary, which I would put up there with many of the more popular observational humor bloggers. Google Suggest Makes Me Lose My Faith In Humanity doesn't need a lot of snark and venom to get it's point across which gives it high marks in my book.
Check it out, and realize that there are people searching for much weirder stuff than you are:

Pictures! Lovely Pictures!

I love photo blogs and I've come across this gem of a website. Okay so maybe I'm biased because the first picture was of a squirrel, but this is truly worth a look.
And while your there, click through Lydia's profile, she has a great personal blog too. As a former New Yorker who has not been back to the city since 2001, I love seeing my old stomping grounds through the eyes of others. Oddly enough, I was her age last time I was in NYC, goodness how time flies!

I Want My Flying Car Before Robots Take Over The World

Were you aware of the fact that the future has passed us by?
Where's my flying car? Where's my personal jet pack? Why am I still cooking when food should be in pill form or prepared by robot maids? Why aren't tomatoes as big as my head? Huh? Huh???
Paleo-Future is a well stocked treasure trove of articles from publications past regarding what life would be like in the future. While some wildly miss the mark, to the point of being humorous today, others are eerie in how spot on their predictions were.
Caution, geeky and addicting:
