Happy Valentine's Day

Source: glendascards.blogspot.com --- Wednesday, January 30, 2019
 Welcome to Glenda's Cards! With rainy and cold weather lately, I decided to start working on Valentine projects. Of course, I could not let this recently purchased Cricut Maker sit idle for too long! The pretty patterned papers are from Recollections Be Mine Double-Sided Paper Pad. I enjoyed combining the pretty pink papers with the blues for a non traditional Valentine look. White cardstock is Colorbok. I purchased the Dreaming Tree My Lovely Valentine SVG Bundle using some of my accumulated points. These are gorgeous designs from the team, as are all their beautiful images! Leo shares very informative and great videos  to help create the wonderful projects. The XXO Card is actually a free SVG. I love how these turned out! Thank you Leo! Sweetheart Basket - Using the Cricut Maker, I chose the Solid Score images to bring into Cricut Design Space and cut the images at size brought in.The finished basket is 5" h…

'Anthem' gets off to a rocky start as EA's 'VIP Demo' weekend falls apart

Anthem looks like a promising step in a new direction for BioWare, the studio behind Dragon Age and Mass Effect. But it's not there yet, clearly.Publisher Electronic Arts picked the final weekend in January to serve as the timeframe for Anthem's "VIP Demo," ahead of a Feb. 22 release. Unfortunately, it's been a bit of a mess.SEE ALSO: 10 video games we can't wait for in 2019 Anthem is an online-focused game with "live" features that shift and evolve according to a schedule, not unlike recent favorites such as Destiny 2 or The Division.

We can expect a coal-free Germany by 2038

Image
It took hours, but Germany finally agreed on a plan to close its coal power plants and rely heavily on renewable energy sources.The country will shut down 84 coal-based power plants — that's all of them — by 2038 a government group decided on Saturday. The commission convened in Berlin to map out how to move away from coal. Fossil fuels still account for about 40 percent of Germany's power, according to The Guardian, despite recent gains in renewable energy sources. The country also plans to move away from nuclear energy by 2022. Once it gets there, renewable energy will be the main source of power.  Read more...

Let one hero's quest to pet 100 dogs at a dog show inspire you

Image
A dog show is already a magical land where dreams come true, but one innovative attendee made a good thing even better.Sally Kuchar arrived at the Golden Gate Kennel Club Dog Show on Saturday with one goal: Pet 100 dogs. It was an optimal place for such an undertaking. The Golden Gate show is a bench show, which means that the dogs hang on on assigned benches (and are available for meet and greets) while they're not being shown."Folks are encouraged to walk around and familiarize themselves with the breeds, and petting is very, very encouraged," Kuchar explained via email.So Kuchar made the rounds. Throughout the day, she took 100 videos of 100 dogs, each better (or good-er, if you're still into that lingo) than the last. Read more...

Elon Musk says ominous music, 'Rick and Morty' will soon keep Teslas safe

Nothing keeps out thieves and ne'er-do-wells more effectively than a D Minor musical composition.That's the latest idea Tesla CEO Elon Musk proposed for his 360-camera theft prevention "Sentry Mode" that he plans to bring to electric Tesla cars with Enhanced Autopilot. He says a "rough" beta will be released sometime in February.The latest details of the car monitoring system — that sound like a joke, but knowing Musk are possibly real(??) — were introduced on his Twitter page Saturday night. Musk claims the watchful cameras will play Bach's Toccata and Fugue composition. He also said thieves might hear the metal versions of the classical piece. Read more...

You could win a $1.7 million mansion by writing a standout letter

Broke English majors, take your places. A homeowner in Alberta, Canada is selling her $1.7 million (CAD) home via essay contest.Alla Wagner is searching for a new owner for her 5,000 square foot home, which, according to a report from CNN, has "three bedrooms, three full baths and two half baths, in addition to a wine cellar, panoramic views of the surrounding mountains and a pond." Not bad.Here's how it works: Entrants must write a short letter (maximum 350 words) explaining why they should get the house, then mail or email it to Wagner along with a $25 entry fee. Once Wagner collects roughly 68,000 entry fees — enough to cover the house's value — she will publish a group of semi-finalist essays on social media so people can vote for their favorites. Then, the 500 entries with the most votes will be whittled down by an "independent panel of judges," who will select three finalists. These three finalists will then be interviewed. One of them will get the ho…

Donald Trump and Roger Stone get big laughs in the latest 'SNL' Weekend Update

Image
It was a big week in U.S. politics. Donald Trump's temper tantrum-fueled partial shutdown of the government came to an end, for one. And Roger Stone, a longtime Trump ally and adviser, because the latest figure in the president's orbit to be indicted.I'm starting to think this Trump guy might have done some crimes at some point. But I digress.Those two nuclear news items — the government re-opening and the fall of Stone — dominated an entire Weekend Update segment on Saturday Night Live. Inherently funny stuff. Trump is, of course, well-established as an incoherent idiot. And Stone... the facts of that guy's life are absurd. Make sure you watch this one until the end. Read more...

Harvey Weinstein doc 'Untouchable' draws its power from his victim's stories

Harvey Weinstein and Sundance have a history.The producer had long been a fixture, picking up future hits and hobnobbing with talent. It was also, we learned in 2017, where he perpetrated some terrible crimes. In 2018, Weinstein sat out the festival for the first time since the '80s.In 2019, Weinstein had a presence at the fest yet again – but not as a power player on the ground. This year, he is the subject of Untouchable, Ursula Macfarlane's 98-minute documentary about the abuses he's waged on others over the past four decades.SEE ALSO: 'Bohemian Rhapsody' pulled from GLAAD Media Awards after sexual assault allegationsRead more...

Zac Efron's Ted Bundy movie 'Extremely Wicked' is shockingly pointless

'SNL' imagines what Colton Underwood's run on 'The Bachelor' will look like

The latest season of The Bachelor kicked off on Jan. 7, featuring former NFL linebacker and self-admitted virgin Colton Underwood as the object of the 30 contestants' desires. (Or whatever, The Bachelor is weird.)This Saturday Night Live sketch recasts the show as Virgin Hunk and completely shreds it, taking potshots at the awkward speed dating vibe, the conniving and manipulative behavior it takes to win, and the IRL show's struggles with diversity. The whole thing only works as a comedy sketch because the women of Saturday Night Live are so damn funny.

We really need a new word for binge-watching

Image
InBinged, Mashable breaks down why we binge-watch, how we binge-watch, and what it does to us. Because binge-watching is the new normal.If you were born a working-class kid near the English city of Leicester before Queen Victoria's reign, then you may have been one of the first people in the world to use the word "binge." Which, back then, meant "soaking wood so it swells and won't leak in the rain."The first writer to record the word, in 1848, also mentioned Leicestershire locals had started to use "binge" for another kind of soaking: getting wasted. And that's how it spread around the world — from alcoholism (binge-drinking) to excessive food consumption (binge-eating, introduced around a century ago), until finally, around 2014, largely thanks to Netflix, we began to talk of binge-watching.   Read more...

Steve Martin is Roger Stone in a hilarious 'SNL' cold open roast of Fox News

Image
One thing is increasingly clear anytime Saturday Night Live uses Fox News as a platform for laughs: the Rupert Murdoch network's pro-Trump, anti-progressive approach is so dogmatic and over the top, it's virtually impossible to parody. A jokey news package featuring Fake Tucker Carlson and Fake Jeanine Pirro is just as overrun with half-truths and outright lies as the real thing.Then Steve Martin shows up. The frequent SNL guest host (he was never a cast member, as an earlier version of this post erroneously stated) made his Trumpworld debut as Roger Stone, who on Friday became the latest Trump adviser and ally to be indicted. Martin is almost unrecognizable at first, and his over-the-top delivery is perfect for a man who seems like an IRL cartoon every time he pops up on TV. Read more...
