Today is the 10-year anniversary of the attacks of 9-11 in the U.S., and the LIFE galleries are displaying some of the most powerful photos from that day, as well as a number of other related galleries up this week in memoriam.
Stumbled across this interesting article on the Joys of Canning - I've never done it myself but I know plenty of people who do. How many of you guys do it? What kind of things do you can?
Anyone who has kids or has been around little kids will find Kid History particularly funny (and true). Cribbing the style of "Drunk History," the kids narrate the tales which are acted out exactly according to their descriptions. Hilarity, of course, ensues. (Thanks Janel!)

New gadgets are supposed to make our lives easier, but these 10 have found a way to make things more difficult (except I really want one of those retro handsets - I miss the comfort of an old phone!)
From Johanna, the opening credits to Johnny Quest … now in stop motion!
Use these squares to make some blippy bloops of songs to send to your friends (or jam to yourself).
To end things for today, a lasting shot from 9-11: a photography student took a picture from an airplane of the Twin Towers rising just above the clouds five months before the terrorist attacks. It's a haunting photo because it does, as the article says, embody so many things about how we have come to feel about them. (Thanks to Holly for this link!)
A big thanks to everyone who sent in links this week - keep it up! Send you submissions to, and don't forget to follow me on Twitter, where this week I linked to what we're all really thinking during job interviews.
