This is the scribble that leads to the babble. Sometimes it gets tidied up, but sometimes . . . not so much. When all else fails – go watch the video!

Friday Eve

Thinking of Caff today.

Ever have one of those days or weeks . . . where you’re like “trust me. not good”. I mean, you just don’t even want to talk about it because it means reliving it and depressing the junk out of the listening party. Don’t worry – I have no story that I will bore you with, but damn – bring on the weekend. I got a whole lotta running ahead though.

Tell me something I don’t know.

It’s not all rainbows and butterflies, you know. Or rainbows and unicorns. Or butterflies and unicorns. Which is it or which came first?

Rainbows and butterflies came together first. The earliest was from an 1864 French book A Woman’s Philosophy of Woman

In the 1980s, unicorns made their entry, at around the same time that Hasbro began marketing its My Little Pony line of toys, which included both a Rainbow Ponies and a Unicorn Ponies collection.

Neal Whitman wrote an article about this.
