A Child in a New Hutong – Stuck in Customs

What does the Fox Say in Google Glass

My daughter Scarlett loves to use glass to watch music videos and sing or dance around… in this case, she did a voice search for “What does the fox say” and this happened. She can hear it fine, btw… the music is playing clearly by vibrating into her skull through her occipital bone.

My sorry golf clubs

I’ve been playing more and more golf lately. I’m not good. That’s not the direction I’m going with this; I’m going in the direction of having a very old and scattered set of clubs. I think I must have irons and woods from at least six different makers, and many of the key ones are missing. 7-iron? Gone. 4-iron? Gone. But I do have all these other strange clubs that I have never even found the occasion to use – even one with a wooden shaft. I have to pilfer my son’s new clubs to fill the gaps… I haven’t taken it upon myself to get a new set yet because I don’t think my game warrants it… but maybe some day! 🙂

Daily Photo – A Child in a New Hutong

Hutongs are older, family, communal areas in China. There are thousands of them scattered all around Beijing, for example. Most are old and classical, but some of them have gone through modern renovations and are now a mix between the old and the new. This one had some trendy furniture stores, a theater, and a little coffee shop on one half while the other half was still old-school and classical. I saw this child resting on top of a ramp to a theater.
