Still Life With Robin: Lazy Memorial Day Weekend

by Peggy Robin

This Friday of the 3-day Memorial Day weekend I am proclaiming Lazy Friday. Lazy for me means doing a quick, virtually-no-effort column, which I can accomplish simply by recommending a few cool websites.

If you’re not planning to spend this weekend at the beach, you can see the virtual beach, and it doesn’t have to be dumpy old Ocean City or Rehoboth. How about Bondi Beach, Australia? Take a look at the Bondi Beach cam:

If you’d prefer something charming, try this hummingbird cam:

Perhaps the most appropriate bird cam for this Memorial Day weekend is the bald eagle cam:

I’m not sure how to segue into this last recommendation, which is for an invention that I hope may be available to the public in time for next year’s Memorial Day picnic. It looks to me to be the greatest thing in food since sliced bread. It’s …get this…an easy-pour waste-free ketchup bottle:

Enjoy your holiday, everyone!
