Sunny spring days turn a boy’s thoughts to veggie gardening.


The garden sprouts have begun to poke up from the trays.

MBAs have been killing American businesses for years.

This book must’ve seemed hopeful thirteen years ago when it was first published. But now in the age of a White House staff led by a white supremacist, it’s heartbreaking and bittersweet.

The office was switched to a new coffee system which can do lattes and other foamy drinks. Of course to do this, you need Real Milk Froth.

Even the boxes are mouth-watering:

I need to know what led to this.


Abandoned bike frame in a snow bank on the sidewalk. The frame’s top tube has been cut. The crank, pedals, front chain rings, and front derailleur have been carefully removed, along with the seat and seat post, handlebars, stem, and headset, and both wheels and brake mechanisms. But the chain is still there.

Someone put a lot of work into this.
