My hat is forever off to +Delta, whose safety videos are so good that I'm watching one while sitting at home on my couch.

OMG Skate King is closing!!! An institution!
#rollerskate #bellevue
It deeply saddens me to announce that Bellevue Skate King will be closing it's doors as of June 30th after serving for over 40 years. Business has been real good lately as we have been averaging 800-1000 skaters every Saturday for example...Simply put, the value of the land has exceeded what a ...

Wow. This Nepali village was basically completely erased in the quake.
:(
South Asia Correspondent Justin Rowlatt is the first reporter to visit what is thought to be the worst-affected village of Langtang.

I cry at Cotton commercials and movie trailers, so I always try to err on the side of caution for potentially sensitive issues, especially in a relatively public space. :)

Had +Gretta Bartels​ and +Krzysztof Dulęba​ over for dinner tonight; they chose an excellent wine to bring. :-D

(I'm back safely in the US post-earthquake. Planning to write up some thoughts and photos from Nepal this week, so stay tuned...)

Maybe I should have just moved to The Netherlands instead of quitting.

Those poor oppressed women living in EU sharia law land. Deprived of the mandatory opportunity to break their backs working 70h / week and ruining their lives, just so their grand children can afford a down payment on a car and half a tuition fee for university.

Update from Pokhara, Nepal, 31 hours post-earthquake:

I think 'unsettled' is the word of the day. Only got a few hours of sleep last night due to periodic aftershocks. I think there've been 20+, including a big one around 5am and another 6.9 magnitude today around lunchtime. We've all got "go bags" ready (passport, cash, water, headlamp, etc.) and are sleeping with our clothes on, ready to run out at a moment's notice. There's nothing quite like waking from a sound sleep and going straight into grab-your-bags adrenaline mode. And then the shaking stops, and you sit there in the stillness wondering if or how to go back to bed.

Many shops were closed today (photo below) as people are nervous about being indoors; now it's 7pm and people are starting to gather in the fields and streets again to spend the night outdoors. I've had a strange feeling of ping-ponging back and forth all day between the seriousness of the situation and our relative comfort. There are basically no damaged buildings to be seen in our part of Pokhara; but we're meeting local people whose homes (in the surrounding villages) were damaged or destroyed. In the morning we sipped fresh lassis on a sunny verandah by the lake, and then a moment later the glass was shaking and people were screaming and running for open ground. In the afternoon we discussed various options for getting home, and how many days it might take... while sitting in an air conditioned room with plenty of fresh water and snacks. It's a strange juxtaposition, tinged by a constant underlying tension and uncertainty.

The aftershocks are unsettling because you never know when they'll happen or how long they'll last. The earthquake, okay, I could deal with that, but after experiencing a day of random aftershocks, every time I hear a truck rumble or a door creak I tense up, trying to feel whether it's accompanied by shaking or is just a random noise. In the afternoon I felt like things were shaking even when they weren't, and was too creeped out to stay in our third floor room; I had to go down to the ground floor for awhile to calm down.

I'm not exactly worried, because we're covering all our bases logistically, gathering as much info as we can and making backup plans for our backup plans. There's not much more we can do, and our hotel staff is taking good care of us. We are prioritizing safety over speed in our evacuation plans. But it's all just... unsettling. I can't imagine what it's like in Kathmandu.

I'm in Pokhara, Nepal; +Natala Menezes​ and I are safe. We are sheltering in place for a couple days to see if things calm down enough in Kathmandu to catch our flight out on the 28th.

Excellent combination of price + quality. I feel confident taking my hair here and will definitely return. The first time I came I got a double process (bleach + dye) on my more-than-3-foot-long hair and they did a gorgeous job. A beautiful, rich shade of purple, and the students working on me were really excited about it, which made me feel great. The second time I got a haircut + double process, again with great results. As reflected in other reviews, the work can take a long time, so park somewhere you can stay awhile.

I LOVE going into this shop. It feels so abundant, like yarn is spilling out of every shelf... and yet it's well-organized, not chaotic. They have something in every style. A great go-to local yarn shop, with lots of fun surprises too.
