★~ Banana Lover’s Day:
Talk about taking bananas to a new height….2 Bananas, 1,135 Feet and 1 Ridiculously Dangerous Selfi
What starts out looking like a normal and potassium-filled selfie turns into an acrophobia’s nightmare.
Photographers Daniel Lau, Andrew Tso and an unnamed friend took an incredibly dangerous, yet casual selfie atop the the Centre in Hong Kong, a skyscraper that tops out at 1,135 feet.
This isn’t the first time the team has taken a risky shot though, Tso’s website has a collection of dangerous photographs taken from staggering heights.
Hopefully they didn’t slip on those banana peels on the way down.

★~ Just Because Day:
Just Because Day is a day to do things just because you want to — no rhyme, no reason needed. Celebrate today by doing anything you want . . . just because.
★~ Pots de Creme Day:
Before I share with you how to make this magnifique dessert, let’s learn how to say it the correct way: We do NOT pronounce Pots de Crème “Pawts deh Crème” but instead pronounce it “Po de Krehm,” or, if you want to show off and can do a fair imitation of a French accent, “Po de kehm.” Ok, now that we have the pronunciation down, here is a recipe that even I can make.

Looks like a good day around. The dessert map should be consulted before moving to a new state.
Half day and golf for me but I’m not sure we’ll actually make it out on the course. Rain is predicted and it’s hells bells hot out there as a friend of mine is fond of saying.
Have a good one.
Peach cobbler! Of-course that would be Georgia’s dessert. I might have to sneak over to Texas for Pecan pie.
That banana video is crazy stupid. Makes me angry to see young people doing stupid things and advertising them. I like bananas tho.
I’m having lunch with a friend just because I like her. Maybe, I’ll hum the Lion King song too.
Crazy stupid is a good way to describe it. Peach cobbler is a winner.
I’ve never seen the Lion King. Someday. Maybe after Frozen.
Gooey Butter Cake.. yep. St. Lou loves gooey butter cake.. and frozen custard.. 😀
Yum. Both sound very good.
For heavens sake when you put a picture of two idiots up on a crazy high skyscraper, add a warning for those of us who absolutely hate heights!!!
I went to home depot today too. Also the jewlery store and Costco, and drill class before all of that. Time to sit on the patio and Veg.
HUH? You clicked. Did you see the title on the video? Crazy selfie from Hong Kong Skyscraper!! The banana part was kind of cool, tho.
I like Lowes better than Home Depot. News flash. Lulu has a new deer friend she plays with!!! A dear deer friend! I’ll try and get video…
Oh my goodness! I did read that Lulu has a deer friend. I thought I had dreamt it. Picture, Picture!
Lowes? I won’t tell Cole.
Breakfast is not complete without a banana.
Banana split (surprising), fudge (now we’re talking), pecan pie (rarely) are my states. I’ll choose the fudge!
No thanks = selfie. That’s just nuts.
I agree. I have a banana most mornos. Fudge and Michigan! Now you know where to retire.
I’m glad Illinois’ dessert is brownies, but I do love Michigan’s fudge and Texas’ pecan pie.
I think my clarinet was a Selmer, but I’m just not sure. You’d think I’d know, having played the thing for so many years, but it’s not like it was an Investment!
Love the photo of the lion sleeping — Dallas has an “unstuffy” toy lion with squeakers. It’s probably not as potentially vicious as your sleeping king of beasts!
Well it’s good to be satisfied by several states.
You don’t know what kind of clarinet you played? That surprises me.
Shelties sure love their toys. Do you sing the Lion King song to him?
