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 invent such a silly name – Surferbird News-Links? When I lived in Ventura, California, our family enjoyed driving along the coast highway and visiting various beaches. On some weekends, we would drive north along the mountainous coastline, about twenty miles, up to Santa Barbara. I loved watching the surfers and remarked once how they looked like birds – surferbirds. So, I guess Surferbird News-Links is a tribute to the gem-like quality of the Pacific Coast Highway, the surferbirds and to surfing the web.
I hope you enjoy these curated collections. What began as a place to stash the news I was reading and tweeting has become a celebration of mind and spirit – at least for me.
