And so we meet again, Friday. Many thanks to everyone who sent in links!

From my mom: "If you want to follow what is going on in Egypt now, Amy Goodman is broadcasting [on Democracy Now]."

From Julie: Old iron nails from Canterbury Cathedral are incorporated into a new art piece by Antony Gormley. 

From Josie: Meet Robbie, a friendly robin who pops into a shop every morning to say hello!

From Cassandra: the issue of degree inflation, the science of happiness, and an option for a funeral pyre in Colorado. (We both are intrigued by that last one.)

And finally, this in from Zazoo: "The White Stripes broke up! The 'hipster' is officially dead!" Heh.

Have a spiffy (and safe) weekend, everyone. See you Monday!

RE: Science of Happiness

I think the answer is simple and obvious,erase bad memories. Why are some happier than others? They forget easier, or lie to themselves. Man. I need to take a class on how to forget. I look forward to dementia. teehee
