Guaranteed to put a smile on your face

I'll put my weekly links list up later, but in the meantime some of my online friends seem a little down lately.


If you're in need of cheering up I guarantee this beautiful song and the  accompanying video will put a smile on your face:

I think it's all this rotten weather we've had lately. Hopefully next week will be better :)

I love this video! I played it twice for my daughter and now she's dancing in front of the mirror with a big grin on her face. I love how something as universal and wonderful as dancing breaks barriers. Except for that lone solider in Korea, and I like to think that he was dancing in his heart.

Matt's site has a permanent place on my bookmark list. So far, I've found it impossible not to watch that video without feeling super happy afterwards :)

The last group; the biggest group; my group: SEATTLE!

And it looks like it was at Gas Works Park!

"We" took something down-right ugly and made a beautiful place out of it.

From Wikipedia:
Gas Works Park in Seattle, Washington is a 19.1 acre (77,000 m²) public park on the site of the former Seattle Gas Light Company gasification plant, located on the north shore of Lake Union at the south end of the Wallingford neighborhood. Gas Works park contains remnants of the sole remaining coal gasification plant in the US.

The plant operated from 1906 to 1956, and was bought by the City of Seattle for park purposes in 1962. The park opened to the public in 1975.

Thanks Jon; you made me smile, (on the inside anyway) - So I take back all the bad things I've said about you!!! :o)
