There are Popsicles — and there are Edy's


Who doesn't like Popsicles?

It's easy to forget how good they are as you get older and put away childish things, though there's no reason you should.

Anyhow, I started back in with Popsicles a couple years ago and last evening at the grocery store happened on Edy's iteration (above), an assortment of Grape/Cherry/Tropical.

Talk about the difference between regular and hi-def TV: that's the distance between the intense flavor of Edy's and the suddenly bland Popsicles.

I'm hooked.

Polaroid Vase


Created by South Korean designer Hwajin Jung, who wrote, "We hang a Polaroid with a small cord and a clothespin. Arising from a desire of keeping the memories, I feel longing today. Nature is also what I want to keep for a long time. It is a plant in a Polaroid."


"The illumination is for the plant, and the gentle curved shape will seem to be an image of a Polaroid...."

BehindTheMedspeak: Play doctor with the New England Journal of Medicine


Long story short: three weeks ago the venerable publication launched a new series of online interactive medical cases.

According to an item in yesterday's Washington Post Health section, "Anyone can try to solve medical mysteries, based on actual cases as they progress from presentation at the hospital to eventual outcome."

The first one's here.

"Initially, access to the cases will be free to all."

The way we like it.
