As a father, I have are a very particular set of skills, skills I have acquired over a very long career.  I've now picked up a new skill.  I have learned to needle felt.

This is amazing.

Slightly NSFW, but only if your workplace sucks.

I turned it off as soon as I realized it was a paean to a politician.

Money quote:

And even then, who says you need to make money doing what you love? Since when does everyone feel entitled to love every fucking second of their job? Really, what is so wrong with working an OK normal job with some cool people you like, and then pursuing your passion in your free time on the side? Has the world turned upside-down or is this not suddenly a novel idea to people?

h/t +Joshua Evans 
Remember back when you were a kid? You would just do things. You never thought to yourself, "What are the relative merits of learning baseball versus football?" You just ran around the playground and played baseball and football. You built sand castles and played tag and asked silly questions and looked for bugs and dug up grass and pretended you were a sewer monster.

It might even work, although being a bit on the uncomfortable side.

Dammit, this is why I'm getting a new credit card mailed to me. 
After alerting customers to a malware issue with payment systems last year, Hyatt has revealed more than half of its 627 properties left customers exposed.

Today someone dinged my truck in the parking lot while I was away.

And they left a note. Miracles do happen.

Really good food, no frills, find your own table service. Fish and chips, fish tacos, ceviche, were all superb. Kids loved the clam chowder cup and fish sticks. Everyone wins.

Very cool shop. I needed an 82mm lens cap (not the most common size) and they had it. Also had an r-strap in stock to replace my broken one. They definitely saved me from taking the rest of my vacation pictures with an iPhone. Very friendly and no nonsense staff.
