Thanks to all of you who liked the picture of my grandmother’s backyard. Here’s her front porch, she keeps it in amazing shape with dozens of flowers and plants. She seemed touched when I told her how much I loved her home, which made it even better.

I could use this tonight — well, every night — but more so tonight.

“I think the most amazing fact I learned was that they have a part of the brain that we don’t have—a part that we can’t even identify. This suggests that they sense, understand, and even feel more than we do. It still blows me away to think about it.”—Gabriela Cowperthwaite, Director of Blackfish
