OMG I wanna go! da Vinci is one of my heroes!  +Sean Humphrey +Aryssa Hutchins 
Leonardo da Vinci's reputation makes him more remote than he actually was. A polymath, his list of almost superhuman accomplishments is intimidating hundreds of years after his death.

I'm really happy I found this Gorillaz album at the library booksale. Their music is so comforting. Maybe it's just nostalgia but it doesn't feel like it. Maybe it's just because I'm so sick right now. But even then...this music is like a safehouse during the apocalypse. That's how it makes me feel.

I love +Google+'s mute feature. If a post annoys me, bores me, is too popular (thus flooding my notifications with 100s of replies), or is in any other way a hinderance to my enjoyment of this social network: BAM. Muted and forgotten.

Fire growing in the fire pit, enjoying a muffin and milk tea, spending time in the lovely spring air with my dogs, listening to all kinds of birds, all after an hour of productive outside chores, my vacation carries on strong! Now to sketch and paint in this fabulous environment~

We visited the Islands of Adventure half of Universal Studios Orlando. Like many, we went almost exclusively for the Wizarding World of Harry Potter. In order to reach the Wizarding World, we walked through the Dr. Seuss and Lost Continent areas (very cool and appropriate-to-theme designs in each area; I wish I could have explored them more but I did take lots of pictures as we walked through). The Wizarding World was EXCELLENT. The attractions, the decor, design, the staff, and shops were all a dream come true for any Harry Potter fan, whether they read the books or watched the films or both. The food was AWESOME. We got pumpkin juice and butterbeer at the outside stands, ate at The Three Broomsticks, and bought enough candy to last us weeks at Honeyduke's. All the rides were fun and the lines actually weren't too bad (I think 45 minutes was the longest we waited and 5 minutes was the shortest). All the staff members in the Wizarding World were great, acting in character (as if they were witches/wizards helping muggles), making conversation, and giving helpful tips (some more magical than others). I was extremely shocked and overjoyed when I was chosen from the group to be the one to receive a wand from Ollivander too, the absolute highlight of the day. The Wizarding World portion of Islands of Adventure is actually much smaller than I imagined. Even after we traversed the area multiple times, we had plenty of hours left in the day so we used it to explore the Jurassic Park, Toon Lagoon, and Marvel areas. I enjoyed myself in these areas, though not quite as much as in Wizarding World. In Jurassic Park I spliced my DNA with a dino, watched a raptor hatch, and held a stegosaurus egg. Toon Lagoon was actually a bit creepy with the music that played over and over, but we had some tasty snacks and got some good photos with the strategically-placed speech bubbles. Our last stop, the Marvel Super Hero Island was really cool to see, with giant comic illustrations all over the buildings and the actual superheroes riding around on 3-wheelers, but we didn't have time for any rides so other than taking in the sights, we just did a lot of shopping (which was plenty satisfying, even if most of it was window shopping). Overall my opinion of the Islands of Adventure is that without Wizarding World, it wouldn't be worth it. While the Wizarding World staff was amazing, most other staff we encountered at the park in restaurants or shops were cold and indifferent, some borderline rude, which really dampened the experience. Adding in the final annoyance of an abundance of smokers (whether they were smoking in designated areas or not, I don't know, but either way it marred our enjoyment of the park), I'd definitely not pay again if it weren't for the Wizarding World of Harry Potter.

I was referred, in a manner of speaking, to WestVet by my cat's normal vet for after-hours emergency treatment. We didn't have to call, we just brought him in and the staff saw to us immediately. Everyone we spoke to was friendly and helpful. The vet promptly examined my cat while we waited for a room to be prepared for us. The lobby and exam room were both very clean, with complimentary hot drinks available in the former while we waited. When they determined there wasn't any immediate danger, they brought my cat back and soon directed us to the exam room. The vet and assistant both explained everything they had discovered, going over in detail the diagnosis and instructions for his care. They prepared his medications there in the facility and when we checked out, I was pleasantly surprised at what they charged for the medication and emergency visit fee. I had to pay much less than I dreaded (based on my previous emergency visits to other vets). Overall, this was a great experience and I will trust my cats and dogs to WestVet's care any time I need an after-hours emergency vet visit.

The local art group I'm a part of moved here a couple months ago after being received more and more poorly at the big chain café we had used to meet for the past several years (perplexing, since we're a small group, cleanly, relatively quiet, and always purchase food and drink, but that story is for a different review). I haven't been happier in any café or teahouse in the Boise area. This Moxie Java isn't much to look at from the outside, it's even easy to miss when driving, but the inside is spacious, warm, and welcoming. The staff has always been friendly, the food and drink is delicious with a nice range of selection (I love the sausage croissant breakfast sandwich and I still haven't tried all the different tea au lait flavors), and there's a huge array of varied seating such as the big wooden table with high-backed chairs that's reserved for our group once a month, smaller more intimate tables, or big comfy couches with pillows. A bonus is the great amount of windows, letting in lots of natural light during the day, excellent for reading or drawing while you sip and munch. I visit this café once a month for art meetings but if I'm ever simply in the mood to order a tea and sandwich any other time, this will be my first choice.

Several years ago, when I was looking for an optometrist here in Boise, I chose ClearView Family Eyecare based solely on their proximity to my home. I have stayed with them ever since and always recommend them highly to all my friends and family. The doctors are friendly, personable, and knowledgeable (they always greet me like a friend and remember the things we talk about, whether medical or not). I haven't had such a regularly enjoyable experience at any other family doctor (regardless of specialty) and my eyes are always in good health thanks to their administrations. Not only are the doctors themselves wonderful, the facilities and equipment are also impressive: clean, welcoming, and organized with advanced technologies I had never seen used at any of my previous optometrists. I highly recommend this practice to anyone in need of eye-care in the Boise area.

I chose to visit Top Nails after my regular nail tech quit at a different salon. Both here on Google and elsewhere on the web Top Nails had consistent positive reviews, and since they welcome walk-ins I decided to give them a shot. I was not disappointed. I was actually surprised at how much better they were than my former tech! I was taken care of by two people, meaning my service was completed quickly, and the quality of the service was excellent. My nails have never looked better! Finally, though I don't have a lot of experience with pricing, for the two services I ordered, Top Nails prices were equivalent to or lower than those of my former nail tech. Overall, I am very pleased with my experience and recommend this business to anyone looking for quality, timely, reasonably-priced nail services. Update: After going to Top Nails every two weeks for over 9 months now, I wanted to add that the service I receive here has only gotten better over time. The prices are still very reasonable, my nails always look amazing, and the staff has gotten to know me and my preferences very well. I always look forward to my next visit and still recommend this business to everyone.

I learned of Tsubaki Kannagara Jinja in the early 2000s but it was in 2010 that I finally made my first visit.  I have made efforts to visit every year since then, and in 2013 I became an official shrine member.  It is a beautiful, powerful, calming, sacred area that is well-maintained and regularly updated.  There are instructions posted in English and Japanese at key places for those who are not familiar with the shrine’s rules and practices (for instance, how to cleanse oneself at the shrine threshold or how to pray to the enshrined kami).  When I visit, I love exploring the shrine grounds to see what has changed, since things are always being renewed and added throughout the year.  There is a shrine shop where one can purchase charms and amulets (juyohin or omamori) or books about Shinto; I always bring my omamori from the previous year to exchange (to be purified by the kannushi) and purchase new ones for my family and myself.  The shrine caretakers are always courteous, polite, and kind.  There are many special services that the kannushi will perform if contacted ahead of time also, though I haven’t participated in any myself yet.  If I ever get married, I hope to have the ceremony here.  They even offer packages to make planning the wedding with them easier.  I love this shrine.
