If you’re like me, you get your news online or on TV, and don’t buy a daily newspaper. So you may wonder…
Do we really need them anymore?
This image from Leslee Cortez on Picstache.com answers that question once and for all –
How else would we give folks ‘newspaper head’ without ‘em?

While checking the time on my cellphone last night, I accidentally took this photo.
I was waiting outside the backstage door at Kinky Boots on 45th Street between 8th and 9th Avenues here in Manhattan. I think the building in the shot is across the street.
The picture is grainy and off-kilter, but I kinda like it.
It looks like an action shot taken from a car…or maybe on the way down, before the photographer hit the pavement.
And I bet a few visitors to New York City might find its disorientation a reflection of their feelings from time to time during their trip.
Me? I just hit the wrong button on my phone.

Growing up, my school mascot was the Golden Gophers.
I’ve always loved that.
My high school is no more, but the Fancy Farm Elementary and Middle School are still going strong, as are the Golden Gophers.
I wonder if they’re looking for some new artwork for the logo…because this whiteboard sketch I found online would be killer.

Do you know what these stickers mean?
My friend Karen encountered them today during her travels.
She doesn’t know what they are. Her Facebook friends (including me) don’t know. And my Google image search didn’t turn up anything either. So now I am widening her appeal –
What the what?
I have to say…I did find a lot of other interesting minivan stickers during my brief image search. Take a look!

Golf is a mental game — everybody says so.
So it has been interesting to watch the course at Oak Hill beat the brains out of the No. 1 and No. 2 players in the world.
Both Tiger Woods and Phil Mickelson started today’s final round of the PGA Championship well out of contention — Phil in second to last place. Many of the announcers said they were actually looking forward to watching the two, thinking they would be more aggressive and willing to let loose since they didn’t have a snowball’s chance in hell of winning.
I’m not sure we’ve seen that.
What we did see was Tiger waving the white flag — ever so symbolically — even before he stepped up to the first tee. He traded the solid red shirt he traditionally wears on Sundays for a model with a gray back and collar.
Subtle, but telling.

The next time I’m having one of those hair days, I will remember his incredible street art by Nuxuno Xän in Fort De France, Martinique.
It really works for him…don’t you think?

I think I speak for most Manhattanites when I say –
Space is at a premium.
So I am particularly impressed by these staircase drawers – an ingenious way to use previously wasted space to store everything from shoes to clothing to linens to pet food to bulk items…you name it!
I obviously get excited just thinking about them.
CanadianHomeWorkshop.com features step-by-step (he he he) instructions so you can make your very own staircase drawers. I’m not sure I would try something this ambitious, but iffin you wanna, here they are.
Now, if I only had some stairs….

I have always liked my oldest brother’s name –
It’s strong. One syllable. And you don’t hear it coming and going.
But when I think about my brother and imagine him personified as an inanimate object, I have to admit this never even cracked the Top 50.
Kent Vase, CB2
You’re way burlier than this, big bro.
