Solar Birdhouse


During the day a solar panel on the roof charges a small battery inside; at twilight the translucent perch lights up and casts a soft glow.

"This light attracts an easy nighttime snack for the bird: all she has to do is stick her beak out of the hole and wait for the buzz."

18 x 9 x 9 cm (7.1" x 3.5" x 3.5").

Helpful Hints from joeeze: How to clean up printed copies of web pages by removing headers and footers


First you need to know what a header and footer is: I sure didn't before I read this material.

Headers and footers are the extra lines like page number and web address automatically added by printers to the top and bottom of printed pages.

The estimable J.D. Biersdorfer, in her March 26, 2009 New York Times "Q&A" column, wrote, "In most web browsers, you can turn off the space-hogging information in the Page Setup or Print box; look for the settings for 'headers and footers.' Instructions for many browsers are at snipurl.com/doww3 and tips for customizing header and footer information in Internet Explorer 7 at www.uwec.edu/help/IE_7/headfoot.htm."

USA Today — Asleep at the Kindle switch


One-fourth of page 11 of section A of today's USA Today is occupied by an ad (above) urging readers to subscribe to the Amazon Kindle version of the paper.

Good idea.

But how is it possible that over a month after the new Kindle (below)


was introduced and went on sale, USA Today continues to feature the now defunct Version 1.0 (top and right below)


in its ad?


No wonder newspapers are in trouble.
