Make it in silicon, give it a robotic skeleton, and you can make some money.

If you know what I mean.

What's the medium?

It's painted bronze.

In the book thread, I tried to link to the books I recommended. I clicked on the Althouse Amazon portal, then searched the book, and clicked on it. That link did not contain the "althouse" in the url that would signify that it went through the Althouse portal.

Any ideas?

Hot weather dog watching, this morning.

first pic of three. Hit newer twice.

@Patrick Use my Amazon search box in the sidebar. The first link you go to from there will have "althouse" in it, but if you click further it won't. So you have to use the first link after using my search box.

If you go in through my link and buy something before leaving, even if you make a number of clicks, I'll get credit. But to make a link that will be an althouse entry with that effect, you need to have a URL with "althouse."

And thanks for doing that!

rhhardin: That is a beautiful dog. I'm no expert or anything, but just beautiful.

At the shore for the week. 99 degrees today, but the water is 75 and the breeze by the ocean makes it relatively comfortable. Hope everyone has a nice weekend.

Is there a way to add that to any Amazon link? Like a specific place we could put the Althouse?

Seinfeld: The Hand Model"

He could have had any woman in the world, but none could match the beauty of his own hand, and that became his one true love

I say we mass produce them and put the squeeze on those ladies in the oldest profession.

According to Genesis, the world's oldest profession is gardening.

You could say that Michelle Obama is engaged in the world's oldest profession.

Brazilian song is sort of nice. I can't say exactly who it reminds me of, perhaps Judy Collins in some of the Jacques Brel songs.

Lyrics, follow along.
