Just like mom used to make.


The office was switched to a new coffee system which can do lattes and other foamy drinks. Of course to do this, you need Real Milk Froth.

Even the boxes are mouth-watering:

Cases of Real Mike Froth.

I need to know what led to this.


Abandoned bike frame in a snow bank on the sidewalk. The frame’s top tube has been cut. The crank, pedals, front chain rings, and front derailleur have been carefully removed, along with the seat and seat post, handlebars, stem, and headset, and both wheels and brake mechanisms. But the chain is still there.

Someone put a lot of work into this.

Because graveyards need more comedy!


On the way home from the doctor today, we passed this perfectly-placed sign at a cemetery.

Preventing animal abuse.


I’m home sick in bed, and the cat still has not developed opposable thumbs.

But she did let me sleep until 9 o’clock before demanding to be fed.

Lucky me! I have learned how an IV pump works.


Because of some gross stuff that happened Saturday, I got several close-up views of the innards of various IV pumps over the next few days.   (Those little teeth above the black arrows form a wave to push the liquid through the hose.)

Conveniently located next door to the bike shop, Gallery Z always has works by great local artists that I need. Like this utterly fabulous piece created by Eric Hardy:

Add-a-Handle.


Everything at the new Target store in Central Square (downtown) Cambridge is sized so you can carry it out and walk or take it on the bus or subway.

Here is a freaking clever idea to make it easy to carry a multipack beverage container. The cashier applies a stick-on handle that grips tightly to the box so you can carry it home.
