What a wonderful list. I would say most of things fascinate me, as well. Except for your live-in handyman.

You must have a very special handyman!

Having recently returned from Las Vegas, I am fascinated by the amount of organization it must take to keep those mega hotel/casinos running smoothly.

Carol Kilgore said...

Helen - And a good thing :)

Jane - Hope you had a great time. Organization and money - which must be why it's so hard to win out there.

Awww, now how sweet is that???

I find hummingbirds fascinating…endless so. They are little marvels of engineering and lead complex and geographically far flung lives. Then, mother nature in general is pretty amazing. The Discovery Channel and History Channel never fail to grab my attention. Pretty much have to stay away from them, or, I’ll get nothing done.

Best Regards, Galen

Snowflakes for sure. A

And I'd like to have one of those live-in handymen, although I'm not sure my husband would approve.

Elizabeth Spann Craig said...

Great top ten!

Do you know how to solve a Rubik's Cube? They've always fascinated me, too.

Your handyman sounds like one special (and lucky) guy!

Galen - Hummingbirds are fascinating! Have you ever had one come within inches when you're wearing a red shirt?

Patricia - Sounds as if you have a live-in handyman already.

Elizabeth - Sad to say, I gave up on Rubik's Cube a long time ago. I hate giving up on anything, but that thing forced my hand. If I hadn't I'd be certifiable by now. I think my brain isn't wired in Mr. Rubik's direction.

This summer while we were camping, we were actually able to get hummingbirds to land on our fingers and eat out of the hummingbird feeder we had.

The Northern Lights fascinate me.

Carol Kilgore said...

Very cool. I've seen pictures of that happening, but never experienced it. I've never seen the Northern Lights, but I'm sure they'll make my list if I ever do.

Laura Eno said...

Tropical oceans - they fascinate me. I love the different colors of the shallow parts.

Carol Kilgore said...

Yes, Laura! The play of the colors is so awesome. It looks different, too, at different times of the day and from one day to the next. I just love it.

I always found the rubiks cube more perplexing than fascinating, though that is probably because I am not really spacially aware.

Carol Kilgore said...

Good to see you here! The Rubik's Cube perplexed me, too. And it was making me crazy because I couldn't figure it out. So after a long while, I stopped trying. I could get close, but never there. My brain was not wired that way.
