Silly Saturday and Sensational Links!

I forget where I saw this originally but it made me spit out my coffee laughing when I watched it. It mocks Twitter - which I love BTW - I was an early adopter :-) I have to laugh because Steven Colbert can barely take himself seriously most of the time when he's spouting whatever satire he's spouting. Makes me laugh out loud. A nice laugh to take you through the sensational links I'm sharing after it.

Hi Cindy! If you are interested in having a little fun with the Rings & Things gang, Dave R. agreed to allow the Blog Partners team to pick out some beads for them to use in a creative jewelry project. If you get a chance to send Dave a tweet with your picks, it sounds like they are up for a fun little "challenge".

Have a great week!! Lisa C.
