Day 127 – Wacky Funky Perspective

Kindness is the language which the deaf can hear and the blind can see. – Mark Twain

I admit that I read comments on some Facebook posts, or newspaper articles, and end up being dismayed (and appalled) at the intense hatred and unkindness that some people inflict on others. Even an article about a young teacher who died here recently had insensitive and classless remarks. Sometimes I wonder why I read these things, because all they do is upset me.

The wonderful thing about being a part of this wordpress.com community is this is about the only place where I truly enjoy reading other’s comments, as kindness, encouragement, and joviality prevail here. I don’t think I’ve ever read an unkind word! What a blessing. To those that partake in my wacky funky perspective project, I thank you for tagging along. To those of you that inspire me, I thank you for being you and sharing your work and talents. And kindness!

Today’s mystery “what is it?!?” picture was inspired by taking a simple object and photographing it by just about every angle or view I could think of. Finally, the picture came to be. Do you know? Can you tell?

What Was That?!? Yesterday’s Picture (Day 126)

Well, the guessing didn’t last very long on yesterday’s picture! Over on Facebook land, I had a guess that it was an outlet to a surge suppressor. But it’s not that. Nor was it an electrical plug (that’s what it looked like to me, too). But when http://voicesofinsanity.wordpress.com/ changed their guess to tweezers, the winning bell was rung. Ding ding ding! Great guess!

  1. Is it those tips that you can squeeze icing out of and make cool designs? Oh yeah and I agree with you on how the WordPress community is one of those few positive online communities where people don’t aimlessly spew hatred at one another. I absolutely love our wonderful blogging family hehe<3

      1. 🙂 I only WISH I could decorate cakes, I tried one time and all I wanted to do was cut the cake in half and put icing in the middle part and the whole thing fell apart. Than I made another one and decided to stick to the surface of the cake and again I ripped the poor thing apart trying to spread everything evenly… It looks ALOT easier than it is:) Now I just stick to cupcakes

        1. I can give you a couple of tips, which might make things easier. First, always freeze your cakes once they’ve cooled from the oven. Then take them out of the freezer when you’re reading to frost. This is where you do your “crumb” coat, which is a very thin layer of frosting (but make sure you get plenty in between the layers). Then do your piping, decorations, etc. Always make your own buttercream icing! I use half butter, half butter-flavored Crisco, powdered sugar, butter flavoring, vanilla, and just a tad of milk. If you’re decorating and your frosting is drooping or feels “wet,” stick your bag in the refrigerator to let it cool down. Hope this helps! My mom taught me how to decorate cakes, she and my grandmother had a bakery a long time ago. I’m not half as proficient as they were!
