Funny Cat jumps into Boxes

These clips have surfaced on a lot of sites, and they do make me chuckle. As a cat lover, I’d have to say that the funny thing about cats is they all seem to be slightly crazy in their own unique way. This loopy cat seems a bit obsessed with jumping into boxes for fun.

Recycle your old Political Signs!

obamasign.jpgWhat a great post I found on Ecometro. They not only give local recycling info about where you can bring your old campaign yard signs, they also tell you how to make other cool things from them, like fenders or panniers (carrying bags) for your bicycle. Here’s the link.  Anyone have other nifty ideas for things to make from these signs? Feel free to leave it in comments!
If you have time browse around Ecometro’s site – lots of great green tips!!
