Friday Morning Wake Up Sequence

To help you wake up on this Friday Morning:

1) Calmly enjoy these lovely images while sipping on your coffee or hot tea

2) Now that you've woken up, you may need another upper to go with your caffeinated beverage and really kick your day into high gear.  So please proceed to rock out with 8 year old Juliet who is one hardcore little girl.  This video will make you laugh while simultaneously making you feel like you are going to kick today's butt.

3) and finally, as you proceed to conquer today and dive head first into the weekend, know that you're dreams can come true in the weeks ahead, as reminded to us buy the National Geographic Channel and team of scientists, engineers, and world-class balloon pilots who successfully launched a 16' X 16' house 18' tall with 300 8' colored weather balloons, inspired, of course, by the movie Up.

Yes, rub those eyes one more time and take a closer look, that is a real life house floating by balloons just like in the movie.  Real life magic.

Have a lovely day!
