Raspberry PI2, Motorola lapdock, a few cables, and lots of patience. It doesn’t do Netflix or YouTube yet, but it’s a passable excuse for a laptop for under $100. It won’t replace my MacBook, but it’s a cool Linux toy for surfing and reading my email at work.
I like my VW dealer. Their showroom is a fabulously sunny spot to spend an hour or two, and the service department provides WiFi and coffee. I love the look of the new Golf Sportwagens, but my 2011 has something they don’t: it’s paid off. (Thanks for the WiFi, guys.)

Wanderlust Cameras ‘Travelwide’ 4×5 with Schneider Angulon 90/6.8 lens, BLIK rangefinder, and bubble level. Now loaded with Tmax 100 film. I can’t wait to try it out.
Sebastian is our alpha cat. He keeps the colony organized and purring smoothly. Chai Lai (the Siamese) is his deputy. As Sebastian ages and slows, she visibly watches out for him. It’s sweet to see.
