I mentioned a while back that I saw the Google Street View car pass while I was working on the building. Then, not too long ago, Dwight mentioned that he saw someone in the street view before he visited for the first time. I finally got around to checking it out myself. Bill painting.
All the world’s a stage.
These umbrellas shade from the desert sun during the day, and can be retracted to allow the floor to cool at night. Located in Medina at the Mosque of the Prophet. I love the architecture of it! I think a few of Houston’s open areas could benefit from something similar. I wonder how strong of a wind they can withstand.
Have you seen this hillbilly at your local grocery store? It cracked me up so much I had to buy a 12-pack.
My caffeine of choice is Dr Pepper, but I enjoy a Mountain Dew now and then, and particularly like their recent Voltage, which was raspberry and citrus.
I also particularly like the sodas that are made with cane sugar rather than corn syrup. This one turned out to be not as good as I hoped, but still decent.
Apparently this one became available in December and is for a “limited time only” – it says so right there on the can!
There is a hurricane named Bill this year. It was only inevitable that this would show up in my in-box from a friend:
I guess it’s been off my numismatic radar, but a few days ago I ended up with two shiny pennies with new reverse sides (the obverse side is the same it’s been since 1909). Using as an excuse the 200th anniversary of Lincoln’s birth, they have create four new images to put on the reverse. Look for them in a pocket near you.
This all leads me to wonder how much longer the penny will endure.
Spring is already on show in Houston. A particularly warm day in February brought out the wood sorrel, which hangs around for a few months, showing itself on warm days. There are so many species of Oxalis that I’m not even going to attempt to identify this one. It does much better in the parts of the yard that don’t get as much foot traffic.
