phlogs for a lack of a better term (or not) are blogs that have photos of dogs. I don’t have a dog and I’d love to have one once I’ll live in an apartment with a balcony or house with a yard. I follow a feed with photos of several dogs to fill the void.

These are are my vicarious dogs.

Little Carmella on instagram  I follow Carmela because I met her in person when my friend Omid brought her to work.

Maddie from Maddie on things. 

Walter and Lew on flickr. if dogs had a natural environment, these dogs are there.

Now with music

I finally got to add happy music when the math puzzle is completed. I also changed the instructions to be more clear. (Thank you, Polly.) If you have a website and you want to have this puzzle in it, go ahead and download it.

Full disclosure: I make a small fraction of a cent, or ε (epsilon) cents, every time it is played.

Type Nesting – The About page

I love I had an idea and I created a site for it really quickly. Picking the name for it was the hard part.

It all started with a photo I saw on Flickr a while ago. I marked it as a favorite. Recently I came across several different photos of a bird nesting inside a letter and so I wanted to see if there is a pattern.

One swallow does not make a summer but two made me Google it. A quick search in Flickr yielded many more than 30 photos and I choose the best ones.

So far I can tell that birds clearly prefer to build their nests inside capital R’s and capital A’s.

UPDATE: If you see a photo that you think fits into Type Nesting, please send the URL to dubster2k{at}
