The Toybox. A Tiny Contemporary Home Or A Piece Of Mondrian Art On Wheels...

The Toybox Home say the designers, combines modern designed compositional forms with a simple material palette to express a whimsical concept. A home that is a place of peace, simplicity, happiness and recreation.
Piet Mondrian might well approve...

I'm Looking At You...

Hey, I'm looking at you.
Wildlife portrait photographer Brad Wilson gets up-front and very personal with these and many other extraordinary beautiful portraits.
Have a look at more of Brad's simply beautiful images here and here.
He says  In the midst of our modern human civilization with all its technological complexities, animals still remain stark symbols of a simpler life and a wilderness lost. Perhaps these images can stand as a testament to this other fading world, and remind us, despite the pronounced feeling of isolation that too often characterizes our contemporary existence, that we are not alone, we are not separate. 
We are part of a beautifully rich and interconnected diversity of life.
You're right Brad. Thankyou...

Drop Everything. Surf's Up...

When the Surf's Up call comes,
you drop everything and go for it.
Guess she'll realise she got something wrong any minute now...

This Gorgeous Little Beach House Is Created Using Recycled Materials And Flotsam And Jetsam Washed Ashore With The Tide...

Sticks and stones so the old saying goes may break your bones but add all three elements to some carefully selected pieces of recycled materials, old bottles and other bits of flotsam and jetsam the tide has conveniently brought ashore and you have all the material you need to build a very cute tiny home.
And let's not bother going anywhere near bureaucratic building codes.
There's more here about this gorgeous little structure that makes it's home on Graham Island, one of the many off the coast of British Columbia. Anything is possible...

Shame On You Australia...

Shame on you Australia.
Shame on you Tony Abbott.
Prime Minister of The Lucky Country.
Shame on you for the despicable way you are treating thousands of boat people, refugees seeking asylum. People trying to escape the purgatory of their home countries, trying to find a better life in the so called 'civilised world'.
They didn't know when they paid all they had to people who would try and become rich at their expense, that they would be treated so inhumanely by the likes of you Abbott.
You, yes you Abbott, who paid the crew of an illegal people trafficking ship like the one pictured, thousands of dollars each to take their human cargo somewhere else. Anywhere else.
You are a despicable human being Abbott. And your forefathers Australia, before you forget, were boat people and mostly criminals being sent to the colonies by Mother England.
Their crimes pale into insignificance
next to yours Australia.
Shame on you...

Possibly The World's Oldest Couple Finally Get Married...

Not because they had to you understand but one hundred and three year old George Kirbly and his young girlfriend, ninety one year old Doreen Luckie got married recently.
I didn't get down on one knee to propose to my now child bride said George. I didn't think I'd be able to get up again...
