I mean really? Do people still post things to "blogs" or has everything totally gone the route of social media?
Obviously I haven't used this thing actively since 2010. I was a bit surprised to see it all still here. Most of the images are busted as they didn't transfer over after Google killed Blogger FTP support but all the text is still hanging around. More about that fiasco here.
I do wonder if we will see a resurgence in blogging with all the recent trends of abandoning the hate filled social media arena. That is honestly why I looked back at Blogger after not having touched it for eight years.
It looks like Google has pretty much abandoned this platform as well. I wonder which product they will kill first? Google+ or Blogger? You never really know with Google... (Picture of the dog is totally unrelated. Blog post just need picture ya know.)
In 1986 McDonald's released what might have been the greatest Happy Meal toys ever created. Jim Henson's Muppet Babies.
They were just as awesome as the cartoon and twice as fun! :)
They were the perfect size to fit into about anything we wanted to play with. They fit in the seats of most G.I. Joe vehicles and yet were small enough to be used as Monopoly pieces. We constructed all sorts of Lego vehicles and houses for them and created endless adventures for them in the backyard. (Yes, children in the 1980's played outside.) They went with us on trips and hide in our pockets to school. Possibly the best toys I even had.
Flash forward to 2018, 32 years later.
Today I found the first Muppet Baby figures created since the spectacular originals! Of course I had to buy them. :)
They are a line of toys based off a new DIsney Junior show that isn't half bad. It's nowhere near as awesome as the original but still very fun to watch.
