Macaque Self-Portrait

I imagine I’ve posted this before, but it’s so delightful it warrants a renewal.

Little Free Libraries

I’m in a condo, so sadly this isn’t too feasible right now. Definitely something to think about in the future, though.  What a wonderful idea. When a new library “registers” with the Free Little Library organization, it gets an official number and is added to a Google map where patrons can search for nearby libraries, see […]
