Stamp marking the 250th anniversary of the first formalized postal service in Canada, initiated in June 1763 by Benjamin Franklin, then the Philadelphia-based postmaster for Britain’s colonies in North America. The stamp features a portrait of Franklin and a vintage scene of Quebec City.
"Do well by doing good." - Benjamin Franklin
"Early to bed and early to rise makes a man healthy, wealthy, and wise." - Benjamin Franklin

Be decent (no accidental porn)? Dress up 24/7! A toddler (guarded by none) Google Glassing everything, everyone around!
Everything Google has said and shown about their wearable computer involves adults and mostly rather serious pursuits such as getting directions, and doing Google searches. But when the device becomes available to buy later this year, children of all ages will begin using them, too.
We’ve seen Michele Bachmann and a half-naked blogger wear Google Glass over the last couple of weeks. But those images don’t exactly warm your heart. But a two-year-old with the connected glasses on? That might be one of the cutest things you see on the Internet this week.

Nature's Law. Gentoo penguins can reach top speeds of 22 mph, swimming! Even squirrels know to avoid GMO foods!
Once a year, penguins experience a catastrophic molt. (Yes, that’s the official term.) Most birds molt (lose feathers and regrow them) a few at a time throughout the year, but penguins lose them all at once.
Gentoo penguins “porpoise” by jumping out of the water. They can move faster through air than water, so will often porpoise to escape from a predator.
Nature has natural laws. Many phenomena shockingly mysterious, inspiring far beyond logic reason, as speed of peregrine falcon

My religion consists of a humble admiration of the illimitable superior spirit who reveals himself in the slight details we are able to perceive with our frail and feeble mind.
I want to know how God created this world. I am not interested in this or that phenomenon, in the spectrum of this or that element. I want to know His thoughts; the rest are details.
