Cat Called For Jury Duty ...And Some Other Crazy Stuff

Today is just about somethings that are totally amazing...actually incredible if you ask me..... first it's about a cat named Sal who was called for jury duty.  Check it out on the link below.  Pictured here is adorable Sal


Then we have stuff like this:

1.  Man Kills Self Before Shooting Wife and Daughter
This one I caught in the SGV Tribune the other day and called the Editorial Room and asked who wrote this. It took two or three readings before the editor realized that what he was reading was impossible!!! They put in a correction the next day..
2.  If Strike Isn't Settled Quickly, It May Last Awhile ....Ya think?!
3.  Something Went Wrong in Jet Crash, Expert Says ....No crap, really Ya think?
4.   Police Begin Campaign to Run Down Jaywalkers ....Now that's taking things a bit far!

Best one yet:
A Young woman was pulled over for speeding. A Michigan State Trooper

walked to her car window, flipping open his ticket book, she said, 'I bet
you are going to sell me a ticket to the State Trooper's Ball.'
He replied, ' Michigan State Troopers don't have balls.' There was a moment of silence. He then closed his book, got back in his patrol car and left.

As we look around our surrondings we realize that there are so many unsual moments/things that make our lives interesting and enjoyable everyday.  The key to this is to be able to find what is that special thing/person/place that makes us happy.....
So many things make me happy....and not necessarily material things but just those tender moments in life with that special someone ......like our kitty Brutus, or like arriving in Eleuthera without a care in the world knowing that for the next few weeks we will be in our own little piece of heaven on earth......
This is me just relaxing and enjoying our beach in Eleuthera.......

Arvid and I when in Eleuthera, we are constantly smiling and happy.  We have more time to spend together....we are not constantly on the phones nor sitting on a computer all day long.  There we are outdoors, working in the yard, doing things we would never actually do here in Ft. Lauderdale...and LOVING!!! every minute of it....
We live in Ft. Lauderdale with some very beautiful beaches but we have become so spoilt with the crystal clear waters of Eleuthera that we refuse to ever go back to the beach here.....just look at how clear that water is and tell me you would not be spoilt also? 
Some of the best and most unspoiled beaches in the world are found here in Eleuthera. The Travel Channel recently named our Harbour Island Beach one of the top ten sand beaches worldwide. And Surfer’s Beach is considered the world’s second best for surfing. Both of these are on Eleuthera/Harbour Island. If you prefer relaxing on secluded beaches, there are many where the only footprints you’ll see are your own.

It’s quite literally heaven on Earth here.
