Saturday Night Dump – Chasing a Noodle

Post to Twitter Post to Digg Post to Facebook Post to Google Buzz Post to StumbleUpon

It’s been a really cold day here on the Eastern Shore – we still have snow on the ground! I think it’s going to probably be here a while though, we haven’t really had a snowy winter in a few years, so we’re due for one. I suppose the upside is that the skiing is going to be great in the Pocono Mountains this winter.

This week’s featured blog, Chasing a Noodle, is written by Alastair. He explains his blog:

“Chasing a Noodle is a blog featuring humorous stories and nonsense from the irrelevant world of Alastair Hazell (or something like that, feel free to re-arrange the words). His blog contains a humorous look at life, people, culture, the Internet and social trends.”

Alastair is right, his blog does contain a humorous look at life. His latest post, A Reason to Hate Snow, is hilarious! If not for the graphic picture, I would not completely understand his sarcasm! It’s nice to know that England is getting snow – and that teenagers are the same everywhere!

Sometimes I am surprised by different things on Google. On his post, Funny Google Search Suggestions, Alstair provides a screenshot of a Google Search that was “auto completed” with “never put a sock in a toaster” – while I agree that is really good advice, it’s funny that Google brought that up! How many people really look that up??

If you haven’t read this blog, you definitely should! It’s wonderful!

Saturday Night Dump – The Rooster Crows at 4AM

Post to Twitter Post to Digg Post to Facebook Post to Google Buzz Post to StumbleUpon

This week on Top Sites Tuesday we had an awesome time! Many bloggers participated and it was awesome to see how everyone has a different favorite Holiday Song! The Rooster Crows at 4am was the winner of Top Sites Tuesday and tonight gets Dumped on BlogDumps!

Dave aka Bonehead, the author of The Rooster Crows at 4AM, is an awesome blogger! He writes:

Quit the Rat Race and retired to the edge of the jungle in the Philippines. Grew up in small central Illinois town of Mt.Olive, worked in Springfield, Il and previously lived in Auburn, Il before making the big move to the Philippines. Talk about a radical lifestyle change! Taking pontoon boats off the Guimaras Strait to nearby Iloilo City to do shopping instead of driving my Chevy Colorado down I-55, and bathing with ice cold buckets of water over my head, no heated water tanks here, dodging lizard poop as we sleep at night under mosquito nets. Every day is an adventure, and that’s what my blog “The Rooster Crows at 4am!” tries to relate in a humorous fashion.

And he is so humorous! Anyone who calls his wife The Sainted Patient Wife and her mother The Feared Giant Lizard Killer is a hoot!

I really like to read about the pay scale differences. I find it truly interesting that a carpenter would only make $5.50 a day! Here in the US, that’s below the minimum wage hourly rate!

It is awesome to read about the Philippines. I think it’s such an interesting place and I love to read the random postings and see the pictures!


The Rooster Crows at 4am!

Welcome to the BlogDumps Community, we look forward to reading more of your blog!

Saturday Night Dump – Older Eyes

Post to Twitter Post to Digg Post to Facebook Post to Google Buzz Post to StumbleUpon

It is with Great pleasure to introduce the latest Featured Blog in the BlogDumps Blog Directory! Bud’s blog is called Older Eyes

Bud Writes:

With a do-over unlikely and getting my children to listen to my archaic opinions only slightly less so, I’ll record the view through my Older Eyes here in Bud’s Blog. As you read each post, you decide … Sage, Curmudgeon, or Fool … we can agree to disagree on which is which. Your comments are welcome, whatever your age. If what you read changes you for the better, I’d especially like to know. Hopefully there will be no casualties.

A different perspective and outlook on life, Bud started blogging about eight months or so ago and has done a really good job. His first post, Feeling Old is inspiring and set the whole scene for what he was to write inn the coming months.

I enjoyed reading Bud’s Blog and seeing things from a different perspective than some of the other blogs I have read. I really enjoyed his post about Christmas, Monday Smiles – 11/30/2009, it was Positive and wonderful… You all know how I like to read about positive outlooks on different things. At first glance though, I thought that the picture of the house lit with a ton of Christmas lights really was his neighbor, all I could think about was how amazing that was.. followed by “Wow those guys have WAY too much time on their hands!”

Make sure to visit Bud, welcome him onto the BlogDumps community and leave a comment- you all know how bloggers like comments 😀

Saturday At the Dump

Post to Twitter Post to Digg Post to Facebook Post to Google Buzz Post to StumbleUpon

Saturday at the Dump – Randomize Me

Post to Twitter Post to Digg Post to Facebook Post to Google Buzz Post to StumbleUpon

This week on Top Sites Tuesday, the winner was Randomize Me! Arca’s got a very cool blog that’s an excellent read. She writes about lots of stuff, but in her own words:

Just a blog where I have the freedom to post about anything under the sun that interests ME!

My interests include playing the Sims 2, gadgets/ technology, and hunting down free (legal) stuff. I love to read, write about a whole lotta nonsense and listen to music.

I just love her blog! She let’s you know about free downloads for music and ebooks from different places on the web. I am all about music, in case you haven’t noticed, check out one of her posts about a free download from Amazon “Again” By Flyleaf

This blog is just like the name implies, a randomized collection of all kinds of things from E Books to music downloads to whatever she feels like writing about even A FREE iPod Touch & iPhone Game – Sentinel: Mars Defense.

The layout is really nice and easy to navigate… And her blog loads fast too, not like some others that seem to take forever ’cause of all the extra stuff. It’s a must stop by on your blog surfing.

Arca and her blog, Randomize Me, are a great asset to the BlogDumps community and we love having her join us on Tuesdays. Make sure to stop by and check out her cool blog and leave a comment – you know we bloggers love comments 🙂

Thanks for being a part of the community Arca!

Trina and I are off to have some fun so I hope all of you are having a great weekend so far! The sun is finally out here on the eastern shore, but it’s really chilly, so we are bundling up and heading out! See you tomorrow for Sunday Music! Upload your music to BlogDumps Video and get in the Sunday Music Spotlight!

All the best!

Saturday Night Dump – The Inferno

Post to Twitter Post to Digg Post to Facebook Post to Google Buzz Post to StumbleUpon

What a better way to get ready for the Halloween Season than to visit and awesome blog with scary undertones? With a Welcome Page:

Welcome all, to the the maiden voyage of… The Inferno! BEWARE……….. BEWARE …. BEWARE……..(cue evil laughter echoing from deep within the ships bowels) Brar har, har, har… har. we are the scallywags from our sister ships, The Artist Challenge, and Dante’s Pub.

The Inferno

I love their overall theme and I was going to try to describe what thier site was all about, but I couldn’t write it better:

We are a community of artist and writers from around the world, who gather to share in the creative influence. The Challenge started as a dare between two amazing artists. It has since grown to encompass what is now The Artist Challenge. Our last gallery had 20 artists who participated in the theme. One of those was not an artist at all, but a writer. For this community feels that writers are artists themselves, simply working in a different medium.

They host a Writer’s Challenge, posting a theme and a submission deadline for creative writing works of art. The challenge Title, Nightmare’s Dance, “this theme be in the spirit of Hitchcock, one of the masters of scream and scare. ” And the entry deadline is Saturday, October 3, 2009. I can’t wait to read this challenge! Their last challenge, “Curiosity Killed The Cat” was awesome! Themed with Edgar Allan Poe’s style, each entry was an entertaining read!

There are a lot of awesome reads on The Inferno, you totally gotta’ check it out!

Ruby Slippers- The Saturday Night Dump

Post to Twitter Post to Digg Post to Facebook Post to Google Buzz Post to StumbleUpon

Legs In The Attic

Thoughts, spiritual experiences, happenings and insights from the woman who discovered the Personal Connector Word to God

Ruby’s Blog, Legs in the Attic, a 21st century Spiritual Blog, was the Top Site sending traffic Tuesday!

After reading Ruby’s blog post, I WISH I WERE AS SPIRITUAL AS MY DOG! I felt enlightened and my mind broadened. I must say, I really like what she has to share in her blog posts.

In reading about her vacation, A BLOGLESS AUGUST or 10 REASONS TO TURN OFF YOUR COMPUTER, I realized that even when I go on vacation, I am not disconnected from my blogs. I can hardly imagine not checking my email for a day. It’s amazing how such a simply post can be so very enlightening.

I have examined my own self and have come to realize the we all leave a part of our soul in places of the trials and tribulations that we go through each and everyday. Sometimes life can be so hard to deal with but it is at those times we must let go and let blind faith lead us down what ever path that has been chosen for us. It is there and only there we will find peace in our lives.

I guess Ruby could tell us where to find this passage but we all know the verse.

*He maketh me lie down in green pastures: He leadeth me beside the still waters. He restoreth my soul*

So all those little pieces that we leave all over the place shall all be put back together and we shall have peace.

I really appreciate Ruby being a part of the BlogDumps community and sharing all she does with us. I am not much of a writer but I can say when you visit her blog you will enjoy every minute she is definitely a much better writer then I. 🙂 You will find so many wonderful posts that help fill your life with joy and lead you in a positive direction.

Ruby I hope this is the only time you ever get dumped!

Have a great Saturday night
Wolfbernz

Pete’s ‘Today in History’ Quiz

Post to Twitter Post to Digg Post to Facebook Post to Google Buzz Post to StumbleUpon

Pete’s “Today in History” Quiz blog was the top blog this week on Top Sites Tuesday!

Pete has a great blog with a ton of useful information. He delivers it in the form of a quiz. I really like Pete’s blog it is so informative and a fun place to visit. Pete has been joining in the Top Site Tuesday Meme and we love having him here in the community.

Pete's 'Today in History' Quiz

Everyday Pete put’s up a quiz consisting of three questions and the answers are posted on the next day’s blog. I find every question challenging, however I must admit I cheat from time to time by Googling the answers!

In his Biography, Pete writes:

“I have been presenting weekly Pub Quizzes for the last 8 years here in Birmingham and I thought it was about time to test out some of my questions on a wider audience.
My basic philosophy for a quiz is: – Don’t make it too hard (people don’t like to go home thinking that they know nothing!)
If people don’t know an answer, when they do hear it they say, “****, I should have known that!!” (There’s nothing worse at a quiz than being none the wiser when you’ve heard the answer!)
Aim the questions at your target audience’s interests.
I have published the book “The Easy Quiz Master” (available via Amazon and Lulu.com). This book is designed to give aspiring quiz masters enough questions for a whole year of quizzing based on presenting a quiz per week.
Aside from quizzing I enjoy playing golf (not very well – handicap 19), canal holidays, visiting pubs, science fiction and taking occasional photos.”

So let’s all make the journey to Birmingham in the United Kingdom and visit Pete! Good luck with Today’s Quiz!
