My sons, now adults, loved Sesame Street when they were very young. One of their favorite characters was Cookie Monster. My youngest son has even gone to a Halloween costume party within the past few years dressed as his version of “Cookie Monster.”
Today, when I was reading some posts from friends on another social media outlet, I saw a post where someone was sharing this really funny video, featuring Cookie Monster. I thought it was a riot, and wanted to post it here, in honor of my sons’ fondness of Sesame Street. I hope you enjoy it!
I enjoy flower gardens. I think that the garden gnome is cute, and clever, but I have never had one in my garden. After seeing this warning video about them, I am thinking that I am one of the lucky few to escape this cute little garden critter!
One of the things that I really enjoyed when I had the opportunity to stay at a Bed & Breakfast place in Bar Harbor was how sweetly the bedrooms were decorated. Fluffy down comforters beckoned from the king sized beds, and every bedroom had a working fireplace that burned real wood. Some of the bedrooms had their own private bathroom with a spa tub in it. (I’d consider that the honeymoon suite!) Most bedrooms had to share a bathroom with other guests. (I didn’t like that part nearly as much!)
Even better, when the hosts served breakfast in the mornings, we had the chance to eat some great food! The last time I stayed at a Bed & Breakfast we were served french toast with honey and apple pie. I’d never had apple pie for breakfast before! I liked that a LOT!

My favorite part of staying in a Bed & Breakfast, though, was the opportunity to visit with the other guests, and the hosts. If we had stayed in a regular chain hotel, we would not have even considered striking up a conversation with other guest there. I enjoyed asking the hosts about daily life there in Bar Harbor, and where they would eat supper if they were going to eat out. Finding out where the best “non-tourist” places to eat are; where you could actually get the feeling of the “real” town were a good way to make us feel less like intrusive gawkers, and more like welcome guests. And those local restaurants usually have the best food, at decent prices too. You’re not stuck with the rubber or frozen meals from a national franchise, or the hugely overpriced lobster dinners served down on the pier.
Nothing like a little bit of knowledge to make someone realize how much there is that they don’t know! This is the last week of the Facebook/Twitter “Blast” that I signed up for. I still don’t think I have any idea of what I am doing here, but that is OK I guess. I AM getting the opportunity to read lots of people’s pages and tweets and finding a lot of people with similar interests, and others with fresh perspectives, so I think that is a good thing.
Participants in this “Blast” are entered in a drawing to win a gift card. I don’t even care if I win or not, just “meeting” all of the other folks has been enough reward for me!

Recently a fellow blogger told me that one good way to increase your presence on the Internet is by participating in something that she called a “hop” or a “blast.” I had never heard of those terms before, but within a few days I found a site that was offering a Twitter and Facebook “Blast.” So I thought I’d check it out and give it a try. It was cheap enough and it might actually provide some value for me – if not by improved Klout, then at least in experience. After all, this blog is a very large experiment, so what do I have to lose? So here we go, with the required elements of my post for the Blast!
