Back from the vet. Both dogs A-OK. Peggy is fully up to date on her vaccines and Lemmy's embarrassing bottom problem has been dealt with.

All Creatures Healthcare are awesome. Not only are they really friendly and helpful, they didn't charge for the final check up on Lemmy's back end. I don't mind paying for vet's skills, but I don't like it when it's a 30 second exam followed by "yeah, he's fine"  (which I already knew, he's my dog!) which my last vet would have charged me £30 for.

The upside to not having another veterinary bill this month is it means I don't have to walk around in shoes with soles worn so thin you can almost see through them for much longer. Hooray!

I'm not yet sure how useful Plus posts are for a company's SEO, but I guess every little helps.

This is actually much closer to the sort of smart "watch" I'd want.
The Rufus Cuff claims to be a step above the smartwatch because it offers users a connected experience similar to one they would get on a smartphone.

eeeeeeeeee I loved Hemlock Grove. It didn't seem to get much attention or great reviews or anything but I thought it was awesome.

Also, best transformation sequence since American Werewolf In London
Netflix's "Twin Peaks with werewolves" series, created by Eli Roth, will release its second season on July 11th! The 10 episode-series is based on Brian McGreevy's novel of the same name.

That feeling when you've spent literally half the day buffing something of a complicated shape to a bright mirror finish before deciding that it would look much better steel brushed to satin.

Ho hum.

I generally finish stuff to nearly mirror/bright before satinising (satinating?), so it's not like I've lost a huge amount of time.

But still. Probably didn't need that last hour of pumice polishing.

An extraordinary exhibition at the Metropolitan Museum of Art last year featured mechanical furniture designed by the father and son team of Abraham and David Roentgen: elaborate 18th-century technical devices disguised as desks and tables.

Zeolites are cheating, and aesthetically not pleasing.  There are those flexible stick balls that have two stable states, one very compressed and one huge.  Building fractal-like structures that can move between one state and the other is generally tough, though.

Been seeing many of them popping up all over. That John Snow is gathering a bit of a name for himself for cleaning up quite nicely.
