Underwater Golf

China has staged what is believed to be the world’s first underwater golf tournament. The event at Zuohai Aquarium in Fuzhou city, Fujian province, involved five players in a 50ft deep tank.

The rules are pretty much the same as for regular golf. Whoever gets the ball in the hole first wins the match. But players were judged on how long it took them to complete the hole rather than the number of strokes taken.

Planning a trip?

Here's an airline you might not know much about:
Amish Airlines!


Awww... aren't they cute?

Little wild piglets.

In the Jungfernheide Park, Berlin.

They are so cute, I almost wanted one.

But then I saw their mom... and realized what they are going to look like when they grow up. So, I changed my mind.

These pictures were taken by Nick, a young photographer in Germany. He has a great little blog, Live Berlin, it's full of pictures he has taken in and around that interesting city.

Surreal and Cool

Oh Gracious Me!

Oh Gracious Me, it's pet therapy day at the nursing home!

Cooling Off

Are you getting tired of the long hot days of summer?
Feeling a need to complain about the heat, the bugs, the mowing, and the air conditioning bill?
Maybe this will help!
