1000 awesome things...

Hiya all....I thought I would just pop in to share with you all a site that I stumbled across recently... 
I thought I would share as it pretty much is....well....awesome.  I like it as it is a blog a guy has set up and he puts a simple pleasure on it everyday.
Here is what he wrote on his blog...
"1000 Awesome Things is just a time-ticking countdown of 1000 awesome things. Launched June, 2008 and updated every weekday."
Some of the reviews people have written are...
*“Strangely heartwarming… perfect for rainy days.”
*“Honors the little joys of life.”
*“Laugh-out-loud funny, tinged with just enough sarcastic nostalgia…”
*“Laugh out loud. You feel like you’ve thought of these things a thousand times but just haven’t stopped to write them down.”
*“A lovingly beautiful blog. It’s like being a three- or four-year-old and looking at the world for the first time again. Read it and you’ll feel good about being human.”
...and my personal favorite...
*“Given the hectic nature of our lives, it’s easy to overlook the little things that make it all worthwhile. Thank goodness we’ve got this new site to remind us of life’s small pleasures. They’re just getting started with the list but we’ve already identified a few favorites including that pile of assorted beers left in your fridge after a party, locking people out of the car and pretending to drive away, and finding money you didn’t even know you lost.

This last comment pretty much sums up what this blog is all about.  Looking at the simple things in life (that give you a buzz) that so often get neglected and overlooked and just appreciating the small things in life...a motto I 100% stand by.

Once you start filing through this blog, i guarantee that you will be at your computer for hours. 

What things can you come up with...? (leave a comment here)
3 big pats on the back to the creator of this blog...YOUR AWESOME!!!!
