"In The Year 2525" — Zager & Evans

Was it really 50 years ago that this fantastic song first blasted out of AM radios across America?

"Blue Sail" — Hans Haacke

Three views of this wonderful 1964-65 work by the legendary and controversial German-born American artist, now 83.

A fan makes a bright blue tarp undulate like a jellyfish.

Haacke's new retrospective, entitled "Hans Haacke, All Connected," his first major survey in American in 33 years, is up at the New Museum in New York City through January 26, 2020.

"Battle Sight Zero" — Gerald Seymour

R2543272_40

Right behind John le Carré at the very top of my list of favorite writers is Gerald Seymour.

Tremendous suspense and wonderful style along with original stories and great characters.

This is his thirty-fifth novel and at age 78 (three days ago) he hasn't lost a step.

In that sense, he's like le Carré, who at 88 is as good as ever.

Leaf Watering Funnel

Leaf funnel

From the website:

Don't worry about drips and splashes all over the balcony ever again.

This hidden funnel may look like a leaf but it does the trick: just pour water onto it and it will flow directly into the plant's thirsty roots, without waste or mess.

Stick it in the pot's soil and it will always be there, ready to use.
