Re: I smiled because...

A 17-year-old noticed a toddler about to fall out of a window, positioned himself on the pavement below, and caught her, keeping her completely safe. The video clip shows his wonderful catch, and how afterwards, while still stunned himself, he is rocking her and holding her close, the most natural thing in the world.

Re: I smiled because...

Because we are probably the only peeps in the current tropical temps that are baking a cake. We've been invited over for dinner and asked for our signature cake . Aaaaaa. Gotta cool by the piano coz the kitchen has become a 60deg biodome of lovely smells and unbearable heat.

Re: I smiled because...

The air smells like linden flowers. I think the closest tree is 200 or 300 m away.

Re: I smiled because...

Fascinating woodworking in a well-edited Video.
My heart nearly broke when he went on to brand those beautiful objects, but I find I'm still smiling in admiration.

davesco has made some interesting contributions
Re: I smiled because...

Finally secured a place to park a boat on Lago Maggiore in Locarno.
Bought a nice fishing boat which will be brought over from Lugano with all the papers. ( collaudo ).
A suntop is on the way from Germany ( eBay ) and will be installed soon.
Will be fun.

Littlest Rufus just tested her new teeth on the Hound's tail. Not sure who was more surprised.

Re: I smiled because...

It's crazy hot. The gym AC doesn't work. And the people still come to work out.
