I showed a property, today, to a young couple.As we left the last house, on our way home.

Recently Active Rain has become a little bit of a colourful greasy spoon, with all the food being bandied about.  Pricing like potato chips?  Scrambling some eggs, the devil's avocado.  All colourful phrases, no?I love all of the above.  Potato chips, I still haven't met a bag I haven't liked and...

This single-take drone video is taking the world by storm.It's an amazing inside out view of a Minnesota Bowling alley, showing you more than you probably wanted to see.  Over under around and through.  Make sure you've taken your dramamine before clicking "play".  This is like watching a roller ...

Wow.  That's about all I can come up with... Wow!Whilst walking and head-bobbing, banging artistically on his guitar, this guy is a one-man band indeed.  Covering a classic from my fairly distant youth (Kashmir by Led Zeppelin).   This Polish guitarist can manage more than I could even imagine in...

The suggestion was made in a recent Question in the Q&A section, that the Ambassadors are "entertaining".  Do you find AR's Ambassadors entertaining?  Now, I'm not talking about me, nor am I fishing for compliments, (or brickbats).But in general... do we amuse you?  What do you mean, you mean the...
