Today’s Google Doodle celebrating John Steinbeck is perfect.
I wonder why Google doesn’t sell these through a print-on-demand service and donate proceeds to a non-profit. It looks like they’re doing something similar with a Google Doodle scholarship program.

Do you know about Sailor’s Valentines? They’re hundreds of tiny seashells glued in attractive patterns meant to woo the ladies back at home. My OCD leanings are all a-tingle. Instead of making one, I made Sailor’s Valentine board on the Pinterest! Also satisfying.
When was the last time you spent a few hours in the company of tweezers and epoxy?
