the buyandi: london's new nude restaurant

A new pop-up restaurant in London called The Bunyadi will give diners the option to chow down in the buff starting in June. Launched by Lollipop, the creators of “Breaking Bad”-inspired bar ABQ, the spot will “take diners to a beginning where everything was fresh, free and unadulterated from the trappings of modern life,” according to a press release. “The Bunyadi plans to use only the most natural, home-grown ingredients to envelope its patrons in a Pangea-like world, free from phones, electric lights and even clothing,” the release explained.
- NY Daily News

The last time I checked their website the waiting list was up to 36,700! I suspect my awesome London friends will be partaking in this experience. :)

rio 2016

I'm starting to get excited about the Olympics in Rio! The poor Brazilians are facing a perfect storm of obstacles and challenges, but I'm sure they will rise to the occasion and put on a show like the world has never seen. Rio de Janeiro has a special place in my heart as it is the place I spent the beginning of the New Millennium with one of the loves of my life, sixteen years ago.

The midnight Millenium fireworks show started on one end of Copacabana Beach and expanded to simultaneously include the entire 4km length of the beach for about 45 minutes! It was beyond words!

two words that can change your life

Today, be grateful. Be grateful for your favorite music, for movies that make you feel good, for your phone that connects you with people, for your computer, and for the electricity that lights up your life. Be grateful for air travel that flies you everywhere. Be grateful for the roads and traffic lights that keep the traffic in order. Be grateful to those who built our bridges. Be grateful for your pet, for your child, for your loved ones, for your eyes that enable you to read this. Be grateful for your imagination. Be grateful that you can think. Be grateful that you can speak. Be grateful that you can laugh and smile. Be grateful that you can breathe. Be grateful that you are alive! Be grateful that you are You!

Be grateful that there are two words that can change your life.

Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!
