A new way to experience the Solar System, for the musically inclined. Each planet represents a note that plays once crossing a threshold. The rotation of the planets are accurately scaled, and yes, despite it no longer being a planet, Pluto is still in there. It's a beautiful musical treat!

I'm annoyed it's been raining so much lately and that it's gotten cold again, harrumph! But before you tell me to "cheer up" consider: apparently feeling grumpy is good for you!

And finally, some unintentionally hilarious commercials for completely useless products (I guess I should put a warning on here for suggestive material, even though they are infomercials ... but still!)
