This is one of my dearest best and satisfied customers. I just had to show you. I wrote a blog a few weeks ago about the rose swirl hat I made for Anne. I live in Texas and she lives in Pennsylvania. At the time when she requested me to make the hat and after i finished it, i had never seen her before. One day after waking up from a nap, i received a conversation message from Etsy. Enclosed were 3 pictures. I couldn't believe it. AAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!!!!!!!!! Wow! I finally saw the finished product and the face that matched the hat.

Staycation ideas for couples who have the pleasure of existing. Are you looking for a couple's getaway? Weekend? With some of us in hard times, it's hard to imagine financing a vacation or fun trip. Instead use your imagination and have a staycation. Browse the internet and "travel". I use earthcam. You virtually travel in realtime. Observing the time difference is half the fun. 

One vacation spot is where it's 4:00pm in broad daylight our time but in Dublin Ireland it's 6 hours ahead and the sky is pitch black. An organized crowd of people surrounds a corner pub with a shiny red exterior called The Temple Bar. They "cover" the narrow cobblestone road. See/hear for yourself on Earthcam

My next "stop" is the famous abbey road where the Beatles crossed. Everyday people walk and cross there. Cars drive on the opposite side of the road. I have to imagine keeping to the left side of the road as opposed to the right. "Visit" Abbey Road here on EarthCam and see/hear for yourself.

One day(night my time) people reenacted the Beatles crossing. Passing cars avoided them. The NHS and dialing 999 for emergency is common as opposed to 911. You will have to excuse me I read a lot if Daily mail online. Although it is a British website, it tells the American news without much censorship. They tell news that has not yet broadcast on TV. Outrageous title headings speak out. Watching the webcam completes the "experience". 

My next stop is Sydney Australia on the cam. The famous harbor bridge next to the opera house appears. Cars once again drive on the opposite side of the road. Their time difference is 15 hours ahead. Nature moves backwards in the southern hemisphere. A live view compares to watching a television show. If someone reads this article and tells me to get a life, I'll tell them to go make one!
