I like it!

Coffee Joulies work with your coffee to achieve two goals. First, they absorb extra thermal energy in your coffee when it’s served too hot, cooling it down to a drinkable temperature three times faster than normal. Next, they release that stored energy back into your coffee keeping it in the right temperature range twice as long.

This may solve my problem of burning my tongue every time I drink something hot.
Every time, every single time.

 I am really loving these snowflake photographs.
They are really beautiful.
I got some books at the library.
Also, take a look at this on the PBS site.

R.S. Posnak
Ever notice how we apply human judgments to our animal friends? Are scavengers "bad"? Are cute fluffy herbivores "good"? This poster by R.S. Posnak raises the subject of anthropomorphism in a humorous and aesthetically pleasing way. 
These are awesome!

Star Projector

I ordered this for Ben as a surprise.
 It came from China.
It took a long time to come.
 He had to put it together
 And then this happened.

I love it!

I have been wearing my cone necklace.
I think it is a good fall necklace.
