In addition to "Life in Pictures" posts that I sometimes do (and plan to do more often;-) I'm starting a series of posts called "Highlights of the Week" where I'll be highlighting just random stuff that I came across within a week. I'm hoping to do it each weekend, but since I'm posting my very first one on Wednesday, I called it "Highlights of Last Week":-) Please let me know what you, guys, think;-)))) I appreciate ALL the comments you've been leaving, you can't imagine how excited I'm to read EVERY single one of them!!! Thank you♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥
In this first post I have three "highlights" I want to share with you:
1. Self-Driving Cars by Google
and talking to Senator Padilla who was reached out by Google to legalize autonomous vehicles in California.
If you live in California or Nevada you have probably seen those cars "driving" around already.
(here is a little video recorded inside Google's autonomous car)
They were legalized in Nevada last year, because Google needed some place to test them. But they kept "driving" them in California, too... illegally. Now they've partnered with Sen. Alex Padilla to help them legalize self-driving cars. Can you believe it? We'll soon have vehicles that will be driving COMPLETELY by themselves, and you know what? I first thought it was scary, but after talking to Sen. Padilla I realized that it IS actually safer than having a human drive. Those robots don't text, don't drink, they don't experience fatigue and they have radars allowing them to detect and react to the things that no human can possibly see.
2. DIY Bath Craft: Homemade Shower Jellies (Jello Soap)
I FINALLY got around to doing a DIY project. I had been thinking about this particular one for quite some time - it seemed like it would be a whole lot of fun to do these shower jellies and even more fun to use them afterwards! And so I HAD to give it a try!;-)
I used this video recipe:
3. Some Photos:
I came across those and couldn't help posting them - we had some really good time during that trip to Clear Lake resort. And I still can't ride those ripsticks!!!
