"FEEL-GOOD SHOT" #3
Link - by Avi Abrams



Some joyful stuff to brighten up your day

Welcome to the new issue of Dark Roasted Blend's "Feel-Good" series: mostly bright and sweet collection of images designed to propel you along your day with a smile on your face and a spring in your gait.

Consider it a kind of Tumbler-substitute for the caffeinated, busy crowd with deeply-felt and sophisticated sensibilities, somewhat nostalgic about more glamorous times (you know who you are), or just looking for that extra bit of sunshine.

Wenche Myhre is Norwegian, not German. She's a big star in Germany though, so I can understand why you thought she was.

Second that, Wenche Myhre is most certainly a Norwegian singer.

Thanks for the sunshine. I needed that.

Must visit Poland and Marta Dahlig.

Catching goldfish in the sky sounds much more dignified than tipping over the goldfish bowl or, worse, slipping into the koi pond.
