DrHGuy Cyber-Bookmarks: 03 April 2007
Cyber-Bookmarks From DrHGuy are annotated links to arguably worthwhile, recently published online reading, new or revised websites of potential utility or ostensible interest, and other internet-accessible experiences that, were it not for the casually collected, cavalierly collated, & capriciously collocated components comprising these posts, could easily be overlooked – which would be, in some cases, a shame,
I know, I know. I just did the DrHGuy’s Cyber-Bookmarks thing three or four days ago, but I just found this web site, and it’s too perfectly pertinent to pass on.
Some examples of Mr. Itoh’s work are displayed below:
Many other sculptures are shown at the web site. According to the FAQ, the average carving requires 60 minutes and the only tool used is a small knife.
The Watermelon Carving Site is particularly pertinent because it
- Invokes the much-wished-for-by-DrHGuy warm seasons
- Provides a counterpoint to the Halloween Pumpkins Post
- Is just so cool
- Watermelon Fun Facts from the Food Reference Web Site: Watermelon can be traced back to Africa and is part of the cucumber and squash family. Early watermelons were mainly rind and seeds. Today’s varieties are larger, the flesh sweeter, the seeds smaller and the rind thinner. It is perhaps the most refreshing, thirst quenching fruit of all. Watermelon consists of 92% water and 8% sugar, so it is aptly named. Americans eat over 17 lbs of watermelon each year. The largest one on world record (Guinness Book of World Records) weighed 262 pounds. [↩]
