Whether coffee, like me!, or tea, sort of like me, soda, not like me, or chocolate, like me!, we all probably take-in a little caffine from time to time. This makes me feel a bit better about doing just that :)

     -enjoy!

From: YouTube Ted-Ed_Over 100,000 metric tons of caffeine are consumed around the world every year. That’s equivalent to the weight of 14 Eiffel Towers! Caffeine helps us feel alert, focused, and energetic, even if we haven’t had enough sleep — but it can also raise our blood pressure and make us feel anxious. So how does it keep us awake? Hanan Qasim shares the science behind the world’s most widely used drug.

...I'll post them here because they really are speedy yet full of information about ISS!

     From YouTube: NASA Johnson
No one knows the International Space Station better than the people who live and work there—and now they’re sharing that knowledge in bite-sized chunks. In the first of a series of short videos called “SpeedyTime,” Expedition 52 flight engineer Jack Fischer gives us a quick-but-thorough tour of payload activities inside and outside the airlock in the station’s Japanese laboratory module, Kibo.

It's stunning to me how, even after all this time, those two little words still bring tears to my eyes. This vid, which I snagged from secretsolitaire, is a lovely tribute made for the 2th anniversary of the first Harry Potter book. It's 'The 20 most memorable moments from the Harry Potter series -as chosen by fams'.

Thank you, Kinwad!!!

From YouTube:
Erin Mackey and Randy Harrison (Dot and George in SUNDAY IN THE PARK WITH GEORGE) perform "Move On" in the Guthrie recording studio, accompanied by Musical Director Mark Hartman. See them onstage in SUNDAY IN THE PARK WITH GEORGE



I'm including the painting, A Sunday Afternoon on the Island of La Grande Jatte, as well as an image, from  a different production, of the painting. I love the little cut-out animals!
          It adds a bit of poignancy when you realize that Georges Seurat only lived another five years after this painting was completed, dying at 32 years of age. You can't help but wonder what else he might have accomplished given the chance to grow into his mature style.
