I just discovered the Marco Polo Video Chat App and I am intrigued. With my family and a lot of my friends living in different parts of the world, I often find it hard to stay in touch beyond just text and email. Marco Polo seems to have cracked this nut. You can talk/ aka record a video message when you’re on the go, between appointments, whenever it’s convenient for you. Your friend can watch in real time or later. Unlike other video apps, you don’t need to be live. It’s safe and private. So, that means, no likes, no comments. Dreamy!
I have been a fan of what Lucien is building with the Invisible Dog since it launched 11 years ago. And for the last 4 years I have had the honor to give my companies a home inside the building that is named after his organization. If you love what Lucien does for the arts, the neighborhood of Boerum Hill and beyond, consider supporting his Kickstarter.
Photographs of jumpers blending into their surroundings for an inventive 1,000-hour knitting project. Wow!
I am completely in love with this somewhat silly looking Pickle Plant. I bought one a few weeks ago and it’s thriving. I am delighted. Also, I had no idea you can buy plants on Etsy!

Various emergency services around the world, from ambulance to police and rescue teams, are showing all the gear that they carry in their vehicles using this technique.
A few days ago I shared on my Instagram how my daughter felt inspired to decorate her white sneakers with Tattly. I can’t remember getting this many DMs with excitement and thumbs up. It’s super simple: Grab a hold of some fun small-ish Tattly and apply them, just like you would on your skin, but on your shoe. Make sure to cover the designs with a clear sealant or clear nail polish. Superfun! Boring sneakers no more!
There are many more Tattly DIY ideas on our blog.
“When I was born, I donned a space suit for living on this planet. It was this body, this nice spacesuit, and it had a steering mechanism, my prefrontal lobes and all the brain motors coordinating stuff. . . . You get so good at using your spacesuit that you can’t differentiate yourself from your spacesuit anymore. . . . It’s what I call somebody training.”

Do you have any favorite recipes that you can make ahead, freeze, and it still tastes REALLY good when thawed & prepared?

Disillusioned with his life, Dr. John Kitchin abandons his career as a neurologist and moves to Pacific Beach. There, he undergoes a radical transformation into SLOMO, trading his lab coat for a pair of rollerblades and his IRA for a taste of divinity.
I like SLOMO. The world would be a better place if we paid more attention to what lights us up and follow that. Wholeheartedly follow that.
I know what I am doing with my 9 year old this weekend: a Cotton Ball Launcher.
Activist: Portraits of Courage caught my attention. Love that quote especially.
