Tiger cubs wrestling at Goebbert’s Farm Market, South Barrington.

In the background: my daughter making roaring sounds, and some discussion of the Pumpkin Eating Dinosaur, which is exactly as neat as it sounds.

On a horse at Chain O’ Lakes State Park, a couple weekends ago. (Still haven’t figured out Facebook video upload from the mobile web site, so it will have to live here for now. )

BRSLabs’ AISight - The World’s Only Behavioral Recognition System for Video Surveillance

It was really creepy when this marketing video claimed “AISight is not constrained by human rules”.

I’m actually taking that out of context - I think they were trying to claim that AISight bases its video recognition of what’s normal and abnormal, based on its own analysis of video history, rather than preprogrammed rules.  But it’s still an amazing thing to hear.

It’s pronounced “eyesight” of course.

Today’s excitement:

Malcolm, shark-shirted, super shark snuggler.

Dorothy models the new camp beds we got at Cabela’s.

I’m proud to have organized the basement books a little better.  Someday I want to get these on bookshelves upstairs.

I was organizing the basement and found this anthology from 1985.  Wow.
