For Your Viewing Pleasure

Spring came to Milwaukee this week.  The temperature has been in the forties, and the snow is melting, and I’ve been outside getting the backyard toys out, hanging the swings back up, and scraping the mud off my kids’ shoes.  Here in the frost belt, when you get nice weather like this in March, you drop everything and just roll with it.  I’ve also been working on cleaning up my basement to make room for the zillions of seedlings I need to start over the next couple of weeks.  I’m sure all this springlike activity will bring an epic snowstorm pretty soon, but that’s Wisconsin for you.

But I had to stop for a minute to show you this site:

How to Be a Retronaut

It’s totally addictive.  It’s now the very first site I check in my Google Reader every morning.  Check out today’s post, for example, where they show Amsterdam after World War II and now in a completely fresh way (I want to try this with some of my family photos).  Or this one, with color (color!) film of 1920s London.  This British commercial is my favorite so far; I dare you to watch it and not get goosebumps.

Check it out.  I bet you’ll like it.
