Just Sitting Here

It’s always amazing to see what others have accomplished in their lives.  Their amazing victories are out there for all to see – be it world travel, winning a gold medal or writing a book.  What we don’t see is all of their hard work, self-doubt and outright failures along their road to success.  This little comic from owlturd.com ends with a similar note – don’t just sit their and imagine, do it.  (Great, now I have Shia LeBeouf in my head).

Travel Idea: Shakespeare

With the celebration of the 400th anniversary of Shakespeare’s death last week there was quite a bit of talk about the bard.

I came across this link of “Pubs That Shakespeare Actually Drank At” list and wanted to bookmark it for future reference, cuz you know, beer:

 

The George Inn, London – An Elizabethan inn-yard theatre, burned down and rebuilt in 1677, National Trust site
The Bell Inn, Welford on Avon, Warwickshire – Open fireplaces!
The Windmill, Stratford-upon-Avon –2 minute walk from Will’s house, built in 1599.
Shakespeare’s Tree, Bidford-on-Avon, Warwickshire – This is evidently a tree that the great bard, um, passed out under. Good to know!
The George Inn

Lego Sisyphus – JK Brickworks

We watched in amazement as Adam Savage built this amazing JK Brickworks Lego Sisyphus build:

I highly recommend checking out JK Brickworks if you a) enjoy Lego, b) enjoy having your mind blown, or c) all of the above!
