Lazy Thursday

6-9-11 Internet brain
Thanks to Al Gore, I can bring you these precious pictures today.

#3 My name in the Des Moines Register Newspaper on Wednesday:

The annual fundraising garden party for the Des Moines Area Interfaith Hospitality Network (DMIHN) not only has become an established summer social event, but its efforts to increase awareness of the plight of local homeless families are paying off.

Bob and Becky Shaw will host this year's garden party from 7 to 9 p.m. June 24 at their home, 13921 Lakeshore Drive in Clive. Guests can explore the Shaws' perennial and water gardens (which also have been featured on the Polk County Master Gardener's tour), sip wine, sample hors d'oeuvres and listen to classical guitar by Paul Wilson, owner of Ye Olde Guitar Shop.
There also will be a silent auction, featuring items including box seats to the University of Iowa vs. Pittsburgh football game Sept. 17; Des Moines Symphony tickets; season tickets to the Des Moines Playhouse; and a painting by local artist Judy Sebern Beachy.
Tickets are $30 in advance or $35 at the door.

#4 I did have a funny video I took of a baby bunny rolling in the dirt out in the backyard last night. But having trouble posting, so instead you'll get this "funny" one:

 Sarah Palin and her "Folksy Salad"
