New Favorite Tea

I’m no connoisseur (tea-wise or otherwise), but I’m pretty sure Mighty Leaf tea has to be the top dog of the tea-drinking world. I’ve never really noticed much difference between good tea and cheap tea before, but this stuff is like sipping on a little bit of heaven.

The Digital Tower

How much does the ancient tower of Babel have in common with our modern day world wide web? According to that ancient story, everyone in the world spoke the same language.

Wanderlust

I’m listening to Best American Travel Writing 2000 edited and introduced by Bill Bryson. It’s really good listening. Each story is about 15 to 20 minutes. It brings back memories of traveling. And a strong desire to go travel some more. It makes me not want to settle down, or at least only settle with […]
