Happy #MuseumCats Day!

A patron of “Sammy’s Bowery Follies,” a downtown bar, sleeping at his table while the resident cat laps at his beer, 12/1947

We have a few feline-related records in the holdings of the National Archives, but this one is a perennial favorite.

Also sort of a two-for, as we can get a head start for International #BeerDay on August 1!

I’m off to mingle, apprehensive about encountering yet another unicorn worshipper claiming that some idiot or another owns the universe because ‘book’ gets capitalized sometimes. Stay money, good ones.

Did you know you can tell different species of fireflies apart by their flash patterns?

Science Friday produced a killer video about firefly illumination patters, you should give it a watch below:


Out at the farm this morning, I saw a pretty little pink-headed beetle and Justin said, “Oh, that’s a lightning bug!” I’d never seen one in the daytime. And then tonight, they were all over the driveway, and one drifted by, stopped in front of my face, and flashed at me. It’s fun, now, to see what we know about these charming little buggers and how and why they glow.

OK, this is brilliant!

It was hot and muggy but pleasant in town yesterday. We went to Presque Isle then did some shopping. The best part was while we were in the shops no one did anything to openly justify and joke about rape by participating in that running ‘joke’ that has been following me for so long. It had been along time since that hadn’t happened and I hope it becomes a trend. If we refuse to change the culture to eliminate it (and we absolutely do know how, regardless of what the enablers want you to think) they can at least keep their sick pseudo-religious rescue fantasies the hell away from me. The ‘allow the world to rape you and thank them with pretties’ isn’t art. It’s suicide. Get it over with.

Chucho and Bebo Valdes: Tea for Two

In the wake of the mild flurry of father and son jazz tributes that crop up each Father’s Day, here’s a valentine I found especially hard to resist: the celebrated Cuban piano virtuoso Bebo Valdes, in this affectionate two-piano version of Tea for Two with his son, the comparably formidable Chucho Valdes.
