It is time for Friday Fun, and we begin with a look at one of favorite bloggers, Miss Techyness:
Clearly this ever-so-smart young lady (she is scary smart) is studying (ahem) the technical merits (not) of the Lilly Pulitzer Jeep, part of the company’s Golden Anniversary celebrations. Miss Techyness was visiting the Pink Paddock Lilly store, and was good enough to send us some photos of her shopping trip! Miss Techyness moves to Houston next week, and we think she desperately needs the Jeep to better handle the warmer climate.

Images and conversation about logo insanity provided entertainment today, and a much-needed smile.
For after all, it is a day we have come to loath, a day when horror on the east coast…
Spread to Washington…
And then to a field in Pennsylvania…
And the more it sank in…
The less real it became…
… as brains tried to wrap themselves around images that were incomprehensible.
Eight years later it is no less painful for those who lost a part of themselves.
When a piece of you is ripped away, there is no such thing as closure.
But sometimes it helps to know others remember too.
The sand sculpture was spotted on a beach in India, a reminder grief knows no geographic boundaries.
