But It may get a bit thin, as I will be gone until about Fathers Day. It's my first vacation road trip in years, so the family is making a big long deal about it.

Remember 1986

This is apparently a series, in which they mix songs from the year, and so far this is the oldest. I can't wait until they get into the music from the '70s. Still, this brings back a lot of memories of a certain radio station I worked at. (via mental_floss)

Cat and Ducklings

This video from RTÉ Radio 1 shows a cat in County Offaly, Ireland, suckling ducklings along with her own kittens. Isn't that amazing? Well, from what I can see, the ducklings are not nursing, although they may give it a try after seeing the kittens do it. After all, ducks don't suck. But they sure are craving some snuggling from the mama cat. What really is amazing is that a video from a radio network has no audio. (via Daily Picks and Flicks)

The Princess

Matt Clarke has started a YouTube series called Convos With My 2 Year Old. In it, he recreates conversations with his daughter Coco. I'm sure the words were exactly the same, but common sense tells me that the original wasn't nearly as creepy as it seems when Matt plays the part. Look at that adorable little girl -who wouldn't want to play the princess for her? (via Viral Viral Videos)

50 Common Misquotations

Some quotes are attributed to the wrong person. Some get their words garbled a little. And others were just made up and we don't know where they really came from. However, many of these misquotes are versions that I've never heard. Does anyone really think it's "Bubble, Bubble, toil and trouble"? After all, the next line uses "bubble" as the rhyme. Who are all these people getting quotes so very wrong? John Green sets the record straight for mental_floss.
