Heard about this on NPR this morning and it's an amazing snapshot back in time.
Behind the walls at Emerson High School in Oklahoma City, construction workers found old chalkboards with drawings and class lessons, written almost a century ago and in remarkable condition.

It makes you feel old when you hear a reboot of something you watched as a kid promoted as "not your grandparents' +The Muppets​." Not that I won't be watching it anyway! :)

Not only does this fit in with my appreciation for urban decay, I thought this was very interesting. If you ask today's kids what the cold war was fought against, only 25% would correctly say communism. The US spent more money in the cold war than all of our other wars ... combined! Yet there's no memorial, museums or battlegrounds to mark our efforts.
It's nearly nightfall and sage ranch park seems deserted. But just as we're about to stop the pickup, headlights pass: cop car. “Black-and-white!” Stephen Freskos yells ruefully from the passenger seat. It's a bad omen for the plan that he and his two companions have made for their evening. They've chosen Sage Ranch, on the…

Really good article on designing responsive emails (which are tough!).
Using this ‘fluid hybrid’ method you can build an HTML email with lots of different layouts that doesn't rely on media queries to look great on mobile devices. | Difficulty: Advanced; Length: Long; Tags: Email, HTML, CSS, Email Design, Responsive Web Design

This isn't universal (doesn't work in iOS or non-Chrome browsers), but it's a step towards making websites more app-able.

IMO, Jazz & Christmas go together like Peanut Butter & Jelly, though you do have co-workers walking by, wondering if you're on hold for something. :)

Introduction
I work for a publishing company in Chapel Hill and live in Apex with a wonderful wife and two great daughters. I don't get a whole lot of time to read, but I make it a goal to always be reading something.

They focus on oysters, burgers and beer. They carry a decent selection of NC craft beer, including some beers from their neighbor, Mother Earth. They have an off-the-menu option for kids, albeit limited to Grilled Cheese and Chicken Tenders. After reading some of the reviews, I went for the Butterbean Burger and was disappointed. If you're a burger aficionado and love meat, then this is no substitute. I also tried the Surf & Turf, which is a small patty with fried popcorn oysters. Sounds intriguing, but it's a hot mess that makes you wish the awesomely-seasoned patty could stand out more amidst the mayhem. The service was hit-n-miss. They were friendly, but they forgot parts of our order and we often felt forgotten. My daughter loves broccoli and ordered the steamed broccoli appetitizer, which comes out as a huge unseasoned head of broccoli. So, this is an OK place, but it's not something you need to divert yourself to go to.

We went last week and had the pretzel app and mac daddy burger. It was all very good. Probably a top 10 burger! There are coupons out for this place out there. They also has a great beer selection. We will definitely go back.

This is one of my favorite BBQ places, with pit cooked pig. Nothing fancy, but great eats. The fried chicken takes 30 minutes, so call ahead to cut the wait. The Brunswick stew is great, too. They also offer family-style eating if you're REALLY hungry.

This is a great place to take the kids, especially on Mondays, when kids eat free. It's your typical IHOP with pancakes, eggs, waffles, crepes and tons of other breakfast options. They also have lunch and dinner options as well. The food is ok, but the kids love the smiley-face pancakes and syrup options.

This is an awesome location & chain. Great coffee drinks, but my favorite treat is the Mocha Shake. Decadent, rich and extremely satisfying. HIGHLY recommend. :)

Went here for lunch on 9/10 with a part of six and had a great meal. I had the shrimp poboy and my wife got the shrimp plate. We ended up with about the same amount of shrimp, so I'd you want to save $3, order the poboy. The shrimp were bigger than popcorn shrimp, probably 40/# and were fresh and fried to perfection. You get several condiments with your meal. It's interesting that they use capers in their tartar sauce instead of relish.

This is your typical cheap mexican restaurant (in the style of El Rodeo, El Dorado, Los Tres, La Hacienda, etc), with consistently good comfort Mexican food. Right on the downtown Apex area, making it convenient, should a parking spot be available on the street to eat and peruse some of the nearby shops.
