Some pictures of Parc Festyland, since it's been the subject of so much discussion by me:
The bus stop for Festyland, Normandy's largest amusement park. Can you spot the sign to the park? (Hint: the park is to the left of the road.)
bunny_hugger finds pinball at Parc Festyland. The dot-matrix-displays of the games are in French. World Cup Soccer on the left is reporting, ``Fin de Partie''.

And as it's Thursday night or Friday morning depending on your perspective, it's time for a review of humor blog posts. Put up the past week have been:
- Tourism Ends At Home, this week's major piece, that's not so grumpy as you might think.
- And This Week’s Question, pointing to my mathematics comics reviews and trying for some reader engagement here.
- Local Architecture Critic Running Farther Amok, in that he's going off on weird tangents for the Eyesore of the Week column.
- Surrounded By Robert Benchley-Killers (that would be David Gerrold).
- Statistics July: Or, Statistics April, Another Time, reviewing my June readership on the humor blog.
- Statistics Saturday: What We Found In The New 2015 Penny, deflating some clickbait.
- Amusement Parks For The Apartment Dweller, one of a handful of Betty Boop cartoons with a roller coaster.
- Things To Stay Home From This Weekend, 4th of July activities. Last week's major piece and an unintentional thematic counterpoint to this week's major piece.
