Nice to have help making the bed.

This manhole cover was next to the sidewalk, on the side furthest from the street. What’s stranger is that I didn’t see a manhole nearby, covered or otherwise.

Savanna, the cheetah cub from the Cincinnati Zoo, made an appearance at a happy hour at my gym. I thought it was neat to see the planet’s fastest runner underneath the running track.

Phone’s digital zoom wasn’t the best for this shot.

Seen in the “for him” section of Valentine’s gifts.

We watched a show that included a segment on Fum, a black cat, and Gebra, his owl buddy. Luna was fascinated, mostly with Fum.

ISO Date Format   Leave a comment

Yesterday’s XKCD comic alerted me to the fact that I’ve doing dates wrong:

Since 2000, I’ve used four-digit years, as I don’t want to relive that mess. My wife agrees: we’re teaching our daughter that. I wasn’t aware of the ISO 8601 standard for dates. However, it makes sense.

I’ve reset my blog to use that date format. The new challenge: can I get into that habit when I have to enter a date by hand? For that matter, will I remember when I write a date in a notebook?
