Blog Buddies- spreading the word.

You can probably see my blog taste under the All2Cool Links. I so enjoy traits/qualities of...travel blogs, live a personal experience, display a sort of passion, something that makes you think, have a laugh, or just entertain. I added a few more.

Below are some blogs that have some quality content and worth a look.

http://jennjimenez.blogspot.com/ Jennifer Jeminez - Friend from my hometown diagnosed with Pulmonary Hypertension. The cause, a Congenital Heart Defect and how it changed her life. She is going through heart surgery TODAY and is in my thoughts.

http://mykugelhopf.ch/ - Winner of the 'Best Travel Blog'. Guess where? Switzerland, that's right! ~Passion for Food and Travel. Definitely 2 of the best things in the world and a perfectly done blog.

http://www.notesfromtheroad.com/index.html - The colorful writing, design and pictures from this blog is worth checking out.

http://blogs.nationalgeographic.com/intelligenttravel/ - It is national Geographic, Pictures and Detail...do I need to say anything else?

Family jeans be shakin

Tyler (nephew) update: it's been over a year since I've seen the little guy. (Last Tyler Post) Amazes me how fast he has grown and the difference between the last blog and this one. He can talk, barely, but often he engages in eye contact and mumbles nonsense like he is involved in the conversation. I'm sure it is something important and insightful, but we won't know for a little while.

Is dancing an instinct or learned behavior?
My conclusion is instinct. For example, you put a group of Weilands in a room, play a tune and all the sudden bodies are shaking, moving spastically and sometimes actually to a beat. Be warned, any nearby bystanders are often pulled involuntarily into the mix of rhythmic chaos. You can take most babies, play some music, they will shake their legs, and arms, but this is much more advance. With music on Tyler utilizes his head, arms, legs, forward, backward, sideways, even his toes are clapping. Tyler has shown a willingness to get-down behavior at the very young age of 1.8 years old. Therefore, he has the Weiland gene for dancing.

I bought a new mac (never thought I would) and edited a little video. Get down lil buddy!
