Default Bored, cabin fever? How about........

How about we have a thread of online things to do / see.... a little light relief -- nothing too serious please! Just LINKS to things to do / see / watch.... Cheers!

I'll start!

Facebook: If you have nothing to occupy your mind on Saturday, Route 6, the Band, Port Dover - great band - are streaming a live matinee performance from 4-6pm EST for our entertainment! Grab a glass and dance dance dance πŸ·πŸ•ΊπŸ’ƒ
The lead singer is a Brit -

Cincinatti Zoo - (for kids, but equally amusing) live streams daily on FB - but the video is posted to their website after: http://cincinnatizoo.org/home-safari-resources/
Vancouver - https://www.vanaqua.org/visit/live-cams-penguin live streams
Calgary - Panda cam https://www.calgaryzoo.com/visit/ani...s#species-tabs

If anyone is having to home school - these websites might be of use, free registration on all links (there might be some stuff of interest generally) https://kidsactivitiesblog.com/13560...subscriptions/

and https://docs.google.com/document/d/1...DY/mobilebasic (gdoc) and http://www.amazingeducationalresources.com/ (gdoc) - there's some virtual tours of various places listed on both Gdocs (no download necessary, opens in new tab)

Feel free to add to the list!

The "Ted" and "Pond" cams are most active at the moment. Ted is waking up from hibernation so might be awake a bit more.

There was a good Twitter thread with walking tour video channels on Youtube: twitter.com/spavis/status/1239212907579297793

The first video they show is a nice and peaceful walk around a neighbourhood in Japan:

I think I may try to learn Blackbird on acoustic guitar. I have looked at it before but I couldn't get the picking pattern (only using thumb and index finger) worked out. That should take care of a week or two of practice.

Juicy Jasmine and friends are doing a live webcam where for a small donation, they take requests, apparently.

If this sort of thing happened 20 years ago, it would have been more difficult to pass time.

Thank you. Shut and play is a Canadian I believe.

Justin is the one I looked at before. If I manage it, I will try my hand at posting a video.

The jelly fish cam on Monterey Bay Aquarium page is very relaxing especially with the chill music attached to it

Highly recommend!
