Sunspots 449

Things I have recently spotted that may be of interest to
someone else:
The Arts: (as in Architecture, or Housing): photos of 11 different -- some really different -- tiny houses.
Politics: Apparently, Republicans and Democrats look at the faces of the same candidates differently. Hmmm.
Science: An unusual planet, in another solar system, has recently been discovered, according to the Wikipedia. It seems to violate predictions about the relationships between stars and their planets.
There are scientists who hope that many of us will start searching for new antibiotics, according to a report from National Public Radio.

A video of a fox, hunting for mice under a few feet of snow.

The Washington Post, and other outlets, report that the Food and Drug Administration is suggesting that antibacterial hand soaps (the ones with triclosan, or related material, as the active ingredient) are not effective, and may lead to more dangerous microbes.

Thanks for the link to look at the tiny homes.

I have always considered a house to be a need like clothing or food. I've never considered that it should be wasteful or extravagant. It seems so many people treat their homes like jewelry - most can't afford what they buy or they want to keep up with the Jones'.

I have always liked these …

And, of course, the housing industry makes more profit on larger houses, generally.
