This Ice Cream Shop Makes an Ice Cream Cone for a Local Squirrel Every Day

Putter is a squirrel that lives in a tree outside of Fantasy Isle Ice Cream and Mini Golf in Holden Beach, North Carolina. The shop owners have grown to love the little squirrel and now give it two little tiny ice cream cones daily. The ice cream might not be great for the little squirrel, but before the shop started volunteering cones to Putter, she would mooch from visitors and take their leftovers instead. Now she is a guest favorite and she doesn’t actually need to be feed by the guests themselves.

This Dog Has An Important Job At The Airport

Wednesday, March 30th, 2016

Every day, Piper gets a ride to work, where she helps keep people safe at the airport. She’s not a bomb or drug sniffing dog though. Instead, Piper works on the airport helping to prevent something that endangers far more passengers -birds being hit by plane engines.

The 8 year-old border collie simply does what comes natural to her -chasing ducks, geese, owls and more away from the runways. Of course, there was some training involved in getting the pooch to get used to the planes as that’s not something dogs normally feel comfortable around.

Even when poor Piper injured her arm she continued to happily do her duty, running along with an adorable yellow cast. That’s not to say she is in danger at work though. Her handlers make sure to equip her with protective earwear and goggles.



Best BMO Cosplays Online

Monday, March 21st, 2016

Adventure Time’s BMO is a simply delightful character. Completely asexual, adorably cheerful and both a friend and source of entertainment in the post-apocalypse, BMO is the electronic friend we only wish we could have. While BMO may not be real (at least not yet), we can at least celebrate him/her through the power of cosplay and here are some of the most delightful BMO cosplays out there.

Ever wish you could go to school with Charlie, Lucy and Peppermint Patty? Well, you may not be able to actually enter the world of a boy named Chuck and his pup Snoopy, but you can at least pretend with this delightful tool available on Peanutizeme.com.

The one above is me and it might just be the closest I will get to hanging out with Snoopy -which makes me happy with the results.

Adorable Animals Before and After They Grew Up

Saturday, April 4th, 2015

pets-before-after-33

If there’s one thing all parents seem to agree on about their kids, it’s that they all just grow up so fast. The same is even more true with pets who often reach full size in only one year whereas kids take up toforteen years to do so. That’s why we love these great pictures of pets that show the difference a few years can make with our furry friends.

The pictures also are a great reminder that as adorable as puppies and kitties are, full-sized pooches and felines are also pretty precious -and as you’ve built up that bond over time, you’ll probably always think your own little fur ball is even more wonderful than ever before.

Someone’s got the munchies and for once, it isn’t me or John. These silly felines know the value of a great pizza pie and they aren’t about to sit back and wait their turn to get a slice. And who can blame them? Pizza is just one of those perfect foods that everyone enjoys.

Easy to Make Geek Crafts Using Recyclable Materials

Thursday, December 11th, 2014

If you have an interest you’re passionate about such as a favorite video game or TV show, it’s great to show off this part of your personality through crafts or homewares which reflect this.

Of course buying things related to this can often be quite expensive, especially if it’s official merchandise. That’s why we’ve come up with a list of easy to make crafts which can unleash your inner geek whilst also saving the planet by using recyclable materials! Whether a crafting novice or expert, you should be able to create a few of these DIY creative ideas yourself in no time.

1. Cushion/Pillow Covers

DIY-Geek-Pillows

These are easy to make whether or not you own a sewing machine (that just makes it slightly quicker), and are a great way of reusing the clothes and fabrics you would otherwise throw away. If you have some old t-shirts you no longer wear, or perhaps a pair of curtains which have frayed at the bottom or have acquired an irreversible stain, then don’t just throw them out! Instead, create your own cushion covers out of the salvageable material, taking care to correctly measure the size on your existing cushions or pillows. Then once you’ve cut and stitched, take (or create) a stencil of your favorite character or logo, such as the bat symbol, and paint on to give it that finishing touch.

2. Ice Bucket

DIY-Ice-Bucket

Did someone give you a plant for a housewarming? Perhaps that was a while ago and your plant hasn’t quite survived as long as you planned. Instead of throwing out the metal container, why not keep it and reuse as an ice bucket? Simply give it a rinse to make sure all the compost is gone, and once it’s dry you can start decorating with some comic or graphic novel pages, like you did with your project book in school. Then all that’s left to do is add ice and voila, you’ll have a fun, geeky way of storing your cold beverages.

3. Snow Globes

mini-cloches-wineglass-tree-0912-mdn

Let’s face it, we’ve all broken a glass or two from time to time, particularly a wine glass with a weak stem. Instead of recycling the broken glass, if the bowl is still intact, why not keep it to make a snow globe? A great alternative to this is of course a glass jam jar or similar which you’d ordinarily throw out. Fix a mini comic or action hero figurine to the jar lid, fill the jar with liquid (remembering to leave space for the figurine and a small bubble for the water to circulate) and add in some fake snow.

4. Ironing Board Cover

Has your Star Wars bedspread seen better days? Rather than throw it out, why not repurpose it by turning it into a fab ironing board cover? Simply cut the bedspread to shape, leaving a couple of extra inches to seam it. Additionally you’ll need some foam lining to place underneath to ensure you don’t end up with any lines in your clothing! As an alternative to a bedspread, why not sew together a few old t-shirts with your favorite logos or characters on, to create a patchwork ironing board cover.

Of course there are many more ways in which you can create your own DIY geek crafts by repurposing things which you might otherwise trash or take to the recycling centre. These can be anything from seasonally themed decorations, ornaments and gifts to homewares you can use all year round, so keep your eyes peeled for more amazing crafts out there!



It Wasn’t Me…Was It?

Saturday, December 7th, 2013

Dogs are crazy when it comes to farts. Half of them fart and get confused by what came out of their bottom and half of them fart and run away to leave you with the stench. But then there’s Rain, who simply hears a fart machine and suddenly thinks he is the culprit, though he just doesn’t understand since he didn’t feel anything come out from back there.

Hey, at least he’s not the one doing it and unlike a lot of humans, he doesn’t try to hide it.
