kith/kin, favorite places/favorite spaces: I received a message asking, “Isn’t the before picture your old house?” Yes! I loved this house, 2247 (1985-1993) but MY house was only the right 1/3. And I love it that the next owner has loved this house even more than I did.

If you love cabbage, you are going to freak out about how good this is. Now, if you are on the fence about cabbage, you need to try this because this might be the recipe that converts you to a cabbage lover.
This is a simple side dish worthy of a dinner party and couldn’t be easier to make. Four ingredients, a couple of minutes to prepare and toss in the oven for an hour.

1.5 tablespoons olive oil
2 to 3 large garlic cloves, smashed
freshly ground black pepper
spray olive oil OR non-stick cooking spray

40 Maps, the World, A Sheep No More, visual learners, Google Street View, lists: I found these fascinating …
If you’re a visual learner like myself, then you know maps, charts and info graphics can really help bring data and information to life. Maps can make a point resonate with readers and this collection aims to do just that.
Hopefully some of these maps will surprise you and you’ll learn something new. A few are important to know, some interpret and display data in a beautiful or creative way, and a few may even make you chuckle or shake your head.

Chris Christie, the New Jersey narcissist, The Washington Post: I want to like this Republican, but I keep asking myself, “Can’t we do better than this?”
Even in disgrace, the New Jersey governor — and the nominal front-runner for the 2016 GOP nomination — managed to turn his nationally televised news conference into a forum on the virtues of his favorite subject: himself.
Use of the word “I”: 692 times.
When Christie delivered the keynote address at the 2012 nomination, the criticism was that he spoke more of himself than of the nominee, Mitt Romney. Now we see that even in adversity, Christie regards himself as the hero.
This tendency is what is likeliest to doom Christie’s presidential hopes — more than the details of “Bridge-gate” or the question of whether he is a bully. Christie’s greatest obstacles are his own self-regard and his blindness to the possibility that he might have erred.
USPS, history, Saving Lincoln: I loved this n the Saving Lincoln FB page. And loved BW’s comment: “Our grandfather engaged in a similar, yet far less concerning practice during his traveling days in the 20’s. he traveled all over the country for Liberty Mutual. This was pre-passenger air travel. He and his colleagues would fly on planes delivering mail. Their fare was determined by their weight!”
In 1913 it was legal to mail children. With stamps attached to their clothing, children rode trains to their destinations, accompanied by letter carriers. One newspaper reported it cost fifty-three cents for parents to mail their daughter to her grandparents for a family visit. As news stories and photos popped up around the country, it didn’t take long to get a law on the books making it illegal to send children through the mail.
With thanks to Thomas Doty.
