PSA regarding The Wedding

If you are like me, you were annoyed that the mainstream media
played only snippets of That Choir at The Wedding. Here ya go!

Also, if by some remote chance you have not heard
Bishop Curry’s sermon, you really should.

This one‘s for the museum fans.

For the readers.

On libraries. Read the Wired article, too.

Post-modern truth.

Do you floss?

On capitalism.

Every house has oneAnd it waits.

“You can be sexist without knowing it. You can be racist without knowing it. This is not a moral failing; it is a moral imperative to remember that you are fallible, and take steps to limit the damage your squishy ape brain’s foibles can cause.”

Happy birthday, Matthew*!

Circa 1996. M is red shirt, one knee up. Hanging with the lake crew.


2003: the Harry Potter period.


2004: The Goth period.


2005: Andrew (Elder Son), left; Matthew (YS), right, in South Africa. To me, this photo shows exactly how well they got along, i.e., not at all, until the latter graduated from high school in 2007, and ES discovered that YS was not the annoying little brother he had always been.

2007: M discovers girls, and the world gets a lot brighter.



20007: I am proud that we instilled in both boys, especially this one, a superb sense of humor —  including the ability to laugh at one’s self.


2017: As much as this seems self-consciously hip and deep, M tells me that it was a joke. (See “laugh at one’s self, above”.)

Happy birthday, Matthew! 

* aka Younger Son.

Roping the links. Yesterday’s post revisited. This time with links.

Elephants artists? Um, nope.

Coupla victories for mothers.

Casual agility competition. Agility should look like this (start at 1:30).Or ever better, this (the fun starts at 1:05).


Note: the anti-serendipity, it burns. Two days ago Kym asked about the process of switching a blog from TypePad to WordPress. Among other things, I told her that WP never goes down. Until it did on Friday night. It absolutely refused to update this post when I added a couple links to it. Lesson learned. Never say never.
