TIL: Googling for "Festivus" displays a Festivus pole. I'm still a bit disappointed that we didn't get a Festivus doodle today.

At home school this week, +Aravis Hendricks​ chose to use some of her "home management" curriculum to learn about installing and repairing sprinklers. It also lead to some good discussions about irrigation in agriculture.

Here she is getting ready to attach a sprinkler head.

I've really been enjoying Google Music's radio stations.  The music selection is as good or better than Spotify.  The user interface is better.  The contextual recommendations ("It's Friday afternoon ...") have done a good job guiding me to music I wouldn't have found on my own.

I haven't yet seen or heard an ad although I have bought $6 worth of songs after hearing them on a station.

Both Fez and Braid are on sale for $2 for the next couple hours.  A great deal on a couple of excellent puzzle platformers

Kids and I finished watching the movie Secretariat then raced upstairs to watch American Pharaoh win the Triple Crown.  Wow! What a race.

The monthly reports are the best part of this new car site from Google.  It includes details on all accidents involving Google Car and interesting situations the vehicle encountered.  I look forward to future, monthly reports.

Once again, the ATAP session was the best at IO.  Although this year "Helping Moonshots Survive Contact with the Real World" was a close second.  Cool stuff in both sessions.
