I don’t know if you have noticed that I VERY RARELY reblog another’s blog post. Thanks to Horty Rex of “It Is What It Is,” I felt impelled to reblog this wonderful Flashdance in honor of Betty White’s 93rd birthday. She has always been a favorite of mine.

(✿◠‿◠) Happy Birthday Betty White
I love this what a beautiful gift
I want to do this, too much fun.
I love at the end when her

Australian Peter Sharp wants you to get into a social groove on your commute.
Sharp suited up and arranged to meet eight of his friends on a train car in Perth, Australia. When their train pulled into the station, Sharp got on and got ready to get down.
