I love looking at websites. Actually that’s not true, I love looking at websites I haven’t designed and don’t need to design! Oh yeah, and they have to be beautiful or else I hate looking at them. I recently came across Awwwards and their site which showcased the best of the best in website design and development agencies throughout the world. Feast your eyes on this incredible work, I think the new vernacular for this type of share is “geek porn”.
I absolutely love Peanuts and Snoopy and the whole gang. And I am just thrilled that something that is so timeless and has been a part of my life for as long as I can remember is still just as fun and funny and relevant today. And since they are actively participating in social media with the great Peanuts website, Facebook, Twitter and Instagram accounts, I can see a little bit of happiness everywhere I look!
I made this recipe for Chicken Thighs with Couscous and Kale from EatingWell recently. So simple and delicious!
Megan Smith (@Nuutmeg) recorded one second of her life every day in 2013 in and around Boston and she put it together in this great video. I’m so glad to have found it thanks to @BostonTweet. What would we do without Twitter?
In Idiot America: How Stupidity Became a Virtue in the Land of the Free, author Charles P. Pierce frames out how America, an intellectual country at its inception, has now become a land full of cranks. From the case of Terry Schiavo to modern politics, Pierce examines many cultural stories in America. And how we have gone from a country full of curiosity and hope to a country lost in the abyss of banality and misconception, due to what he considers the Three Great Premises of Idiot America: 1. Any theory is valid if it sells books, soaks up ratings, or otherwise moves units. 2. Anything can be true if someone says it loudly enough. 3. Fact is that which enough people believe. Truth is determined by how fervently they believe it.
