What is Surferbird News-Links? It’s a curated collection of news on food, health, environment, science and technology. But it’s important to note I don’t always agree with every article I share. Also, because I like to stay current on trending topics, sometimes, I present controversial ideas. After all, having the ability to look at news events from different perspectives keeps us on our toes! My current posting schedule is once weekly, usually on Fridays or Saturdays. However, this isn’t written in stone.

The Surferbird News-Links Earworm
But wait! I almost forgot about the earworm. At the end of Friday’s edition of Surferbird News-Links, I feature a music video, which is usually one of my weekly earworms. An earworm is when you get a song stuck in your head. This happens to me a lot! In fact, I share most of my waking hours with earworms. All’s well unless the earworm happens to be a song I don’t like – one that is particularly annoying. I’ll do my best to spare you of these.
What’s in a name?
How did I come up with such a silly name, Surferbird News-Links? When I lived in Ventura, California, our family enjoyed visiting different coastal communities and beaches. One of our favorite outings was to drive north on California State Route 1 along the mountainous coastline to Santa Barbara. I fancied watching the surfers as they bobbed up and down in the water, waiting to catch the perfect wave. When the right one came, the ocean was awash with a new kind of species donning funny black suits. I once remarked how they looked like birds—surferbirds.
So, you might say that Surferbird News-Links is a tribute to clear, blue skies; glistening sandy beaches and the vast Pacific Ocean with its wave-catching surferbirds. But it’s also about surfing the news and sharing my finds with you—a celebration of mind and spirit.
