Our new Shiba Inu puppy loves her little bed so much, even though she is about to outgrow it!  (you can also see she likes to chew on the barstool legs!

+Michael Webber Yeah, the ears have a very cat or fox look to them.

My 15 yo son decided to customize his mechanical keyboard by popping off the keys and spray-painting them.  Good thing he is a very good typist now that the letters are gone!  (sorry about the fuzzy picture!)

The best thing about being so young in the 70's is that I can deny all responsibility for my clothing choices.

Ah, so true. Some of the music is a bit harder to deny, since I still listen to it. . . .

Here is the science behind The Dress.  FWIW, I see white and gold.

This video doesn't really explain the difference in perceptions; light and shadow and a person's brain compensating for that is not the sole explanation for this phenomenon. See https://ca.news.yahoo.com/explained--why-people-can-t-agree-on-the-color-of-that-dress-140114501.html

Something very cool you should try

Go to Google Maps in your computer's browser.  Expand out to show all the continents.  Now, go to the bottom right and find Pegman, the little yellow guy, and grab him with your mouse (right click and hold).  You will see large portions of the world show up blue.  That is where Street View has gotten to so far.  If you just drag Pegman over any random part of the blue areas and drop him, it will usually pull up a nice photosphere someone has submitted.  But, if you zoom in just a little bit first, to the point where you can see roads, you can drop him on a road and you will go immediately to Street View right there.  If it looks cool, wander around (clicking the arrows on the street)!  If not, in the bottom corner you will see a mini-map that says "Back to Map".  Just click that and try somewhere else.  Go to places you always wanted to see, or just go at random.  The picture here is the northernmost place I could find on Google Maps Street View, in northern Norway.  Go to Botswana, or Rio, or a Greek Island.  Then just wander around.
Edit to add: a good tip is to switch to "Earth" view so you can see what the terrain, etc, look like before you "drop in", the blue lines still show up.

What is cool is just wandering around the area and seeing the different views.

This is what Taco Bell looked like when I was a kid.  A bell usually hung in that gap on top.  You can still see a lot of these buildings being used as Mexican restaurants scattered around Southern California.  By the way, that is Creedence Clearwater Revival at the table.

This is what I am most thankful for: wife, son, daughter (and her boyfriend).
