Hanging out on my mathematics blog lately? It's been quiet but steady, although I admit I have no idea what to post this week. We'll see. Recently posted, though, were these articles:
- In Our Time podcast has episode on Pierre-Simon Laplace
- Reading the Comics Follow-up: Where Else Is A Tetrahedron's Centroid Edition
- No, You Can't Say What 6/2(1+2) Equals
- There's a new tiny sci.math archive out there
In cartoons here's 60s Popeye: Partial Post, featuring alien behavior and a flying saucer and all that Gene Deitch weirdness.
Now let's finish off walking around bunny_hugger's parents' town.
One more walk around town. Here's another house projecting lights onto itself.
And a house with wrapped-up bushes.
This was a surprise! A fallen tree that smashed much of the cement edge of the bridge. I was surprised there weren't any temporary Jersey barriers protecting traffic, but maybe they figure at 15 mph there's a tolerably low risk. Or it had happened hours before and nobody had called because it was Christmas.
The Bohm, plus lights set across the road highlighting it.
A yard with a reindeer light fixture in the yard.
A decorated porch I really might have already included here. Hm.
Ah well. Here's cookies! I don't think we made as many as usual, somehow, but they filled a good number of plates when we were done.
Gertie finally decides to come inspect all these shenanigans.
The cat looks back at me at a really great moment.
Oh, so, that's why the tree seems to be drinking so well.
Gertie in the morning, bathed in sunlight.
And a delightful small gift from one of my mouse friends: a coati shotglass!
