Camel jockeys 

This is not goat-related.

The BBC reports that the United Arab Emirates has passed a law tightening a ban on children taking part in camel racing. According to the article, "Both the Emirates and Qatar are planning to replace child jockeys with mechanical ones in the near future."

Technology marches on.

Happy 4th or 5th of July everyone!

Most of us went up to San Francisco, and then up onto a roof, to try and watch the big fireworks show. We had a dramatic view of the city, but there was fog over the bay. It was also very windy! We ended up watching the main show on TV, but we did see some fireworks from local residents while we were outside.

Also, we built a campfire (not on the roof).

Somehow or other, our sparklers went unused for the second year in a row.
