All posts for the month December, 2009

Have a go at Combine from Mind Jolt Games. At first it looks like just another three ball match game. The twist is that combining three balls of one color creates a new ball of the next color up the line. It’s not a button masher. It takes some ability to think ahead logically — and allows ample time to do so — to position new balls in the best place for clearing them later. It’s pretty nifty. Hope you enjoy it as much as I have.

If you loved Straight No Chaser from last year, then be sure you check out the “Christmas Can-Can”.
If you somehow managed not to hear about these guys last year, be sure you check out their previous Christmas Song “Who Spiked The Eggnog“.

UPDATE: Good grief. How could I have left out their “12 Days of Christmas“?

I received a Dear John letter from my blog. I’ve decided that I’d better spend some time working on our relationship or else it might leave me for good!

So here, for your approval, is video and a news article about an octopus that nearly drowned one of the scientists observing it. No, silly, not in a 40,000 Leagues Under the Sea kind of way. The scientist was so surprised at the antics of the little sucker(s) that he almost drowned trying to laugh and scuba drive at the same time!

King Arthur of Monty Python fame might be surprised to learn that it’s not swallows who carry coconuts!
