The entire kitchen is Sandee’s playground, and that includes the chalkboard. I’m not sure what holiday she’ll decide to honor next. She’s been busy elsewhere at home too.

seanbonner‘s photo of Esther’s new tattoo makes me want one.

It’s called Gigapan, a robotic panorama-maker. David Bergman used one to take the picture above (though his view was much larger) (you can buy your own for about $300 if you get in on the beta). The point, however, is that if you zoom in real close, you can see W’s pursed lipped scowl.

Ilya Schurov thinks this is the time capsule from from Isaak Asimov‘s The End Of Eternity. It’s really the elevator and stair (or ramp)-way in Prague‘s Old Town Hall. A clock and great views of the square are at the top. Thinking of interesting elevators to be found in Europe: The Paternoster.

Eu-Jin Ooi‘s picture of rail trucks piled up after a derailment isn’t nearly as scary as this derailment found at Dee’s Inbox: Can anybody name that incident? (The top one is BNSF, Barstow CA, April 2008. What’s the bottom one?)

I practically begged Will and Karen to get on a carnival ride with me so I could get portraits with the lights streaking behind them. Will warned me that he doesn’t do well on rides; I argued that no ride with so many kids under four feet tall could be too dangerous for us. We […]

I’m coming to learn that p0ps has a number of interesting things going on, but it was his panoramas stitched from pictures taken by iPhone that caught my attention first. Above is the J Train somewhere between Fulton and City Hall. I’d thought the iPhone’s camera was pretty decent, p0ps’ work shows it off. J […]

It’s likely Phil Carrizzi could make a broken tire iron look good, but his series of the iPhone with the Newton Message Pad and eMate is geek-sweet eye candy. iphone, newton, emate, apple, photo, gallery, pr0n, porn, photos, eye candy

The photo is from Jessamyn, who declared it Groan-worthy. I’m still grinning about it. Reminds me of the time Homer said “Yeah, right Lisa. A wonderful, magical animal.” pork, sausage, hog, sign, funny, photo

This renewed talk of building nuclear weapons here in the US reminded me of an old report of photos of the sky glow from nuclear tests done in Nevada seen over Los Angeles. This one includes the following description: Atomic explosion, the largest yet set off on the Nevada test range, was clearly visible in […]

While northern-hemisphere inhabitants are enjoying their first day of winter, our cousins in the southern hemisphere are just beginning summer. And in South Africa’s Shark Bay, near Gansbaai, the great whites are departing for other waters. The great whites make their way to Shark Bay annually between September and January, though they are not hunting, […]

This photo from Tsunaminotes appeared in Ende’s photo stream and reminded me instantly of all the cool things I’d never done because I was born too late and cool stuff is what I saw in black and white photos from years past. Of course, Flickr says the photo was taken July 5th, and the photographers […]
