One Christmas Tree To Go


Don't even get me started on how much Christmas trees cost these days. We actually waited until they went on sale for 30% off before we got our tree this year. Anyway, these fine folks helped transport the tree from the rows of trees where we picked it out to the chopping area where it got all bundled up for us to tie to the top of the car and drive it home. It's just like in the old days, except I didn't go to the woods to get it, I didn't cut it, I had to pay someone for it, and there was no snow to be found anywhere (since it was in the high 60s in mid December). But other than that, it's basically the same ritual that has been going on for centuries.

Love this photo and its modern-day view of a centuries-old tradition. Thanks and keep it up.

This is fascinating.
I’d been taught that left-aligned labels are preferred, to support the prototypical F-shaped eye-tracking heatmap of web browsing. The idea is that it supports easy vertical scanning.
