If you have a minute watch was sent by my BFF.

A palindrome reads the same backwards as forward. 
This video reads the exact opposite backwards as forward.  Not only does it read the opposite, the meaning 
is the exact opposite.
This is only a 1 minute, 44 second video and it is brilliant.   Make sure you read as well as listen...
forward and backward.
This is a video that was submitted in a contest by a 
20-year old.   The contest was titled "u @ 50" by AARP. This video won second place. When they showed it, everyone in the room was awe-struck and broke into spontaneous applause.  So simple and yet so 
brilliant. Take a minute and watch it. Click link below.

  1. That is amazing! I rather like the reverse far better.... we have some work to get there... Happy Mothers Day! :)

  2. That was extraordinarily good...thank you for sharing...I'll certainly be passing it on.

  3. Uh, it reads opposite and then the same in alternating phrases, doesn't it? Anyway, thank you! My fave palindrome is "Go hang a salami, I'm a lasagna hog".

  4. Love it - love your blog too. Just found it through Une Femme (and I just got into Hermes scarves too, albeit "vintage" aka "used").

  5. Duchesse-That's a great palindrome!
    Artful lawyer-How nice of you to pop by! Vintage Hermes! I have some as well...they are classics! I'll be looking up your blog too.

  6. Wow, that was an amazing palidrome! I even called my husband over to the computer so he could hear it as well. Thanks for sharing it.
