Fontify your existence

Bad handwriting

At last, you can make your typing as hard to read as your handwriting. Fontifier offers an easy way to turn your handwritten letters into a TrueType font usable in any application. Fonts cost nine bucks, but you can preview them for free. Hint: Keep a consistent baseline, or you’ll end up with too-high letters, like the a in my alphabet.

Careful — they may be Africanized

Yesterday I noticed an awful lot of bees flying around our apple tree, so I went to take a closer look. At the top of the broken-off trunk, I found a ball of bees about as big as my head.

Hella honeybees

They say that honeybee numbers are dwindling, but you wouldn’t know it by looking in my back yard.

Welcome to the velodrome

Track racing in Hellyer Park

Speaking of rare urban park features, who knew there was an outdoor velodrome in San Jose?

And why is it that bike racing is so unpopular as a spectator sport, but people can’t get enough NASCAR?

San Francisco rocks

Rock climbing in Glen Canyon Park

I love a city park that offers more than benches. Glen Canyon Park, in the middle of San Francisco, is such a place. Back in March, I stopped by the park and found Josh climbing on the rock formations there.
