Disappointed, Jim, when that last one has an amazon banner ad that covers half the screen no matter what I do. Not your fault, I know. :^\

I should add, though: thanks for those other lovely links! Mmmm, lavender!

Well, shoot. I’m not seeing that — possibly my AdBlocker at work. Sorry!

I laughed at the Kerning article, especially the ones re the name “Clint.” One of our dogs is named Flick, and we ordered a name tag for her, and it arrived in its little envelope with her name printed in a closely-spaced, sans-sarif font. FLICK. The L and I were too close together, so you probably see what it looked like. If anyone ever finds this dog, they’ll be thinking, “What kinds of twisted people would name their dog F**K?”
