Another Blog

The web is saturated with 'blogs.  We are adding to it. We have a Gloxinia that is in its second cycle of growing.  It grows, blossoms, and completely dies off,  and then lies dormant for several months.  A couple of days ago, we noticed that it is beginning to grow again. 

Follow its growth at our new 'blog.  I think you can subscribe to an RSS feed to get daily updates.

Armour for Cats

Simply stunning.

And I can't imagine trying to get Her Royal Highness to wear it.

Ban Comic Sans

I have been known, on occasion, to go on rants about things that seem irrelevant.

For instance, the use of the font known as 'comic sans' on everything from posters to worship bulletins drives me absolutely insane. It is a font designed to imitate the hand-lettering in conversation bubbles in comic books. There, it is usually appropriate, but even this computer-generated travesty of a font cannot hold a candle to a beautifully hand-lettered comic.

The use of 'comic sans' for professional communications, exams and most unfortunate of all, worship bulletins in church, is wholly inappropriate, infantilizing, and should be punishable by lashes with wet noodles. The whole-wheat kind, not those wimpy soba or egg noodles.

I am vindicated. Viz.;
