My buddy, Mary, sent me this Open Letter From Jesus About Christmas and I loved its out-of-the-box-ness.
Practically my whole life I've jumped out of the boxes others cram themselves into. You know, the same ol' crowd mentality way of thinking. Even as a teenager I rebelled against the normal, everybody-thinks-this-way of things, which meant I spent lots of time being sent to my room.
Although, being an introvert, I found my room a refreshing, un-normal place and was happy to go there. :)
Anyway, I hope you'll make your way over to that unique Open Letter. Lots of terrific, out-of-the-rut ideas there.
Netflix added many old-fashioned tv programs to its instant view line-up. Here are a few:
Bob Hope: The Comedy Hour
The Jack Benny Show
Spike Jones: The Legend
Abbot and Costello: The Colgate Comedy Hour
Red Skelton: America's Funniest Man
The Life of Riley/ Our Miss Brooks
Tom and I discovered another travel show at Netflix which delights us--it's called: Billy Connolly's Route 66. We enjoy any sort of travel program concerning Route 66 and Billy is quite the character/host. He reminds me of an uncle of mine, emotional, and able to insert a controversial subject faster than the speed of light, but in such a quiet way that it takes you by surprise and disables you from quite knowing how to voice your counter opinion.
Watch these episodes and you may see what I mean. (But still, we think Billy is a hoot, he quickly grew on us and his Scottish accent truly is like music as someone on Route 66 told him.)
Speaking of out-of-the-box, some of you will love this article: 15 Creative Home Conversions. Wow. Amazing photos and inspiring ideas which illustrate that probably most of us have scrawny imaginations.
