Today we humans confront the arbitrariness of our method of telling time. It is Leap Day.

It is also my little brother’s birthday. He celebrates his seventh real birthday today, roughly twenty-eight revolutions around the sun.

Here he is in a similarly celebratory mood from a while back. Happy Birthday, Joey.

Lastly, it is Friday and that means cocktails. I’m tending bar for Friday Drink Links over at Coudal’s Fresh Signals. Cheers.
