With the heat (90+ degrees), humidity (90%), and poor air quality (state has issued air quality alert) I am not too motivated to write anything.  I will just post some interesting pictures I found on my wonderings on the Net today.

How has the summer weather been where you live?

1) From the Boston Globes Big Picture – http://www.boston.com/bigpicture/


“A child cries next to Caravinagre (Vinegar Face), one of six big head characters known as Kilikis that walk the streets of Pamplona hitting children with sponges and inflated bladders during the San Fermin festival. Navarre, Spain.”

If this guy came up to my child I’d hit him with more than sponges. 

2) From the site that gets linked to more often than any other on my blog roll, Cake Wrecks –  http://cakewrecks.blogspot.com/

Worst looking wedding cake ever!

3) A site that is always in the top ten for picture sites, Cute Overload –  http://cuteoverload.com/

Saddest looking cat ever! Caption anyone?


4) From the daily picture post of the Christian Science Monitor –  http://www.csmonitor.com/CSM-Photo-Galleries/Photos-of-the-Day/2010/Photos-of-the-Day-07-15/(photo)/10


“South Korean elementary school students shout as they perform an exercise in the mud during a summer military camp for kids at the Cheongryong Self-denial Training Camp on Daebu Island in Ansan, South Korea, on Thursday. One-hundred-fifty kids took part in the three-day camp to strengthen themselves physically and mentally.”

I think these kids are having a lot less fun than kids in the US who have been sent off to summer camp, mostly so their parents can have their own summer vacation.

What is the best summer camp you know of.

If I was a kid again I would want to go to Wavy Gravy’s Camp Winnarainbow, a Circus and Performing Arts camp:
