1. It was Stitch and Pitch (aka Tara's annual baseball game) last week, and due to all the weather we'd been having I might have done some research into field drying times (apparent answer - it depends) and come across this story about one, shall we say, creative attempt to speed drying time by setting the field afire. (Spoiler - side effects may include field being shut down as an environmental hazard.)
2. The LA Craft and Folk Art Museum is covered in granny squares. No really. (h/t to rviser)
3. And drones are being tested out in South Africa to see if they can be used to catch poachers.
