It’s that time of year for the running of the bulls in Pamplona. You’ve probably seen news stories about people being gored or injured as they try to outrun the large bulls on narrow Spanish streets. The practice began when cattle had to be transported from one location to another and local youths would run and dodge in front of them to show how brave they were.
But now, there is another fearful animal to dodge: the bulldogs. This commercial from Geico is hysterical! Click here if you cannot see the Geico Running of the Bulldogs commercial below.

My two fav animated features are Beauty and the Beast and Anastasia. Seeing live action versions of my two favs this year has been AMAZING! I know I’m not the only who loves these movies given the fandom at the movie theater for B&B and the amazing lines and responses of attendees at the Broadway version of Anastasia!
But now, for some Friday Fun, a couple whose real live B&B wedding was gorgeous! Check it out. If you can’t see the video below, click here to see the Beauty & the Beast Wedding or use this link: http://7ny.tv/2qeiNNp

Today’s Man Crush is a man who creates heat in the kitchen and elsewhere: Paul Hollywood, celebrity chef from The Great British Bake Off. If you love cooking, and baking in particular, you must watch this show! I love hearing Paul and Mary Berry, the other remarkable host, talk about the items which have to be created and then analyzing them. The bakers on this show create some truly awesome confections.
As for Paul, this picture just doesn’t do him credit. You must watch the show to get the full effect of that salt and pepper hair, ice blue eyes and the accent. Oh my . . . things are heating up here. LOL! Hope you enjoyed today’s Man Candy.
