"After a lemonade-stand heist, a Loudoun community rallies to right a wrong"

A lovely story.

"The Coolest Hotel in Every State (and DC)"

Maybe bookmark for next year's vacation.

Right on schedule . . .

The complaints against the new, super-duper, much-better-than-before NCAA football championship system are ramping up: "CFP Reaction: This Nonsense Replaced the BCS?" and, of course, "At this rate, we should bring back the BCS".

"PENCILWISE - Equation Analysis Test"


This test does not measure your intelligence, your fluency with words, and certainly not your mathematical ability. It will, however, give you some gauge of your mental flexibility and creativity. Few people can solve more than half of the questions on the first try. Many people who took this test previously reported getting answers long after the test was over - particularly at unexpected moments when their minds were relaxed; and some reported solving all the questions over a period of several days.

"Rough God Goes Riding"

Live in Belfast, 1997, Van the Man.

"It’s Time to Shut Up About Brunch"

Strong pushback against the people whining about brunch. (See, for example, here.)

"432 Park Is Officially New York City's Tallest Apartment Building"

Here's a surprise: $95 million buys you some simply amazing views.

It's not easy being a billionaire

Go ahead, laugh. Then read this: "The Fascinating Reason Many Billionaires Get Depressed (And How They Snap Out Of It)".

For help see the Sudden Money Institute.

"The Surprising Science Behind Napping"

Being older than 50, none of this is a surprise to me, but I link to it for the benefit of my younger readers.

Napping can help refresh the mind, make you more creative, boost your intelligence, and even help you live a longer, healthier life. 

"Could Roy Williams, Tar Heels be stripped of title?"

We'll see.
