*As Mark pointed out last time, this is the last line of "My Favorite Things," but that doesn't mean that this will be the last list of my favorite things. I'll just have to think of some clever new way of presenting them.
1. Here are some truly heart-wrenching problems posted on Twitter and illustrated with stock photography.
3. A Boston Herald reporter's video camera was lost after the Boston Marathon bombing; it was returned to her 3 weeks later. Let's watch.
4. You may have heard that Abercrombie & Fitch refuses to make XL-sized women's clothing because the CEO says he only wants the best-looking people to wear his clothes. They also destroy all irregular clothing from their factories rather than donate it to the needy as other clothing manufacturers do—AF doesn't want "just anyone" wearing their logo. Here's how one guy gave them a "brand readjustment." (Another suggestion, from Seth, is that all us parents of teens start wearing AF clothing—nothing will make it seem uncool faster than that!)
5. I already posted this article on Facebook a while back—I think it was written just for me! If you are as fascinated as I am by the names and identities of all those NPR voices, here's the mothership. My first stop was reference librarian Kee Malesky (for spelling and male/female revelation), and my biggest surprise was Audie Cornish (spoiler: she's not pale and blonde). My two favorite correspondents, judged solely by voice, are Wade Goodwyn (just love the cadence of his speech) and Eleanor Beardsley (with her glorious Southern drawl coupled with perfect French).

8. And speaking of Mother's Day, here we are celebrating:
