From the Blog-O-Sphere

When this popped up on Pinterest a while back, I so wanted this image to be real:

But it’s not. Don’t despair, my dear friends, here are some real examples. Heck ya, I’ve got a badass moose pulling my sleigh.

Wish I could see this exhibit.  Women of Vision: National Geographic Photographers on Assignment. Are you lucky enough to live in DC? Go forth and see it!

Chris has fond memories of visiting here as a kid: Alaska’s Fallen Copper Kingdom

Usually they say the oldest kid in the class has the advantage, but here’s a new take on that. Youngest kid, smartest kid?

I’ve never worked in the Restaurant industry so have no formal perspective, but as a patron, I’d gladly embrace this policy: What Happens When You Abolish Tipping. I pretty much tip 15%, no matter the quality of service. Why would I like it automatically included in the bill? Because I hate doing the math. Yes, pure laziness. 

Are you shopping for previously used/vintage/flea market home decor pieces but hate combing through garage and estate sales? Then FleaPop is for you. It’s an online site where decorators sell the stuff that won’t fit in their homes anymore. Most people will ship and some stuff is local. Which is great if you’re in Los Angeles, not so fabulous if you’re in Seattle (a search of my area turned up...nothing).

Parenting: The Sound of Silence = Trouble. Yes, yes, yes.

Another article on the whole work/life balance debate. I’m Not Ambitious and That’s OK.

Tear-jerker of the day. In Sickness and in Health: A Wedding in the Shadow of Cancer. Worth looking it, if even just for the photos.

When to visit Urgent Care vs. the Emergency Room. Knowing the difference could save time and money.

Love this modern pre-fab house. From a Seattle firm!

And while we’re talking modern...taking it to the garden. 

Hey look! One of my relative’s is selling her cottage. Right. That would be the other side of the Dorrance family tree, not mine. Damn it.
