Monday Stuff on the Way to Other Stuff: Hustle Hustle

It's a brisk, warm Monday morning. The crabapples are starting to bloom. Daffodils are moving out, to make way for the tulips. Lots of greenery is popping up. So what's supposed to show up Wednesday night? Snow, of course. Welcome to Colorado.

Remember the 21 amazing greenhouses -- ones you can build? (From A Piece of Rainbow) The DIY plans they've got for 10 living structures are very inspiring, too. Including this 'living chair:'

Acts of kindness -- caught in photos.

Hawaiian shipwreck treasure recovered.

Eleven really strange stories. 


Have a great week.
