Tired and jet lagged. But oh so happy after the incredible past ten days I’ve spent with Marta and our group gathered at El Esparragal in Andalusia. As a few students exclaimed when our small bus pulled in front of the main house, the photos on their website are far from doing justice to the beauty and warmth of the place! We are lucky! What an incredible experience we’ve had! I need a few days to gather my thoughts and rest my body, but I promise to be back with pictures and words about it all.

I mean, it was snowing in Sicily in March, and we had not thought about that possibility. But thankfully, the snow didn’t last. And thankfully, despite a chilly weather to start, we had an amazing week with fabulous people who had flown from all around the world for the cooking, food styling and photography workshop Fabrizia and I were running together. I cannot thank them all enough for having traveled to Sicily to spend that week with us.

But if the far-more-punk likes of Sex Pistols and Black Flag have done it, why would it be beneath the ‘Mats , who loved classic rock and took on the post-punk mantle (as they took on everything) only grudgingly? Sure, these moves are generally about money. But would Paul Westerberg on his own ever get to play to 15,000 people with Dinosaur Jr., Rocket from the Crypt, the Weakerthans and Iggy and the Stooges as his warm-up acts? I find that hard to begrudge. Given the bill, the crowd leaned to the 35-and-up demographic, but I knew lots of younger folk, women especially, who’d been waiting all summer for it. After all, the Replacements aren’t exactly a hard-to-acquire taste—all their screwing around aside, the noise and shenanigans couldn’t be peppered over much more melodic, to-the-gut tunes and heartfelt refrains. The story of pop-punk and even pop-rock since 1990 is pretty much a question of how many parts Replacements to how many units of metal (or water).

Photo by Lucas Jackson/Reuters I worked for Google as a software engineer from 2003 to 2008. I never worked directly with Marissa Mayer (and I didn’t know her socially either), but I saw enough to know that she was very driven and had a firm vision of what she wanted, worked out in the finest detail. She stuck to her guns. Her genius, like Steve Jobs’, was in managing the interface between computers and those difficult-to-fathom humans, making the tech as user-friendly and seamless as possible. You’d think these were good things.

An Unlocked Phone and an Open Source App Store The difference here is that (as mentioned before) the ZTE Firefox phone will be unlocked. This means you are not limited to service from a single mobile carrier and can choose whatever mobile plan suits you or switch plans easily without switching phones. This could include a pay-as-you-go plan , for example, as opposed to a two year contract. An unlocked phone also gives small business owners and entrepreneurs who travel internationally the option to save money on their mobile service while abroad. Instead of purchasing an expensive international plan from your existing carrier, you can often buy a much cheaper pre-paid plan when you reach your destination and simply use it while you are there. Mozilla has even set up a Firefox Marketplace where you can find apps for your new phone. It includes popular choices like Twitter and Facebook already.

This Mallorcan paradise should be mine (a girl can dream, can’t she?) but since it’s not, I thought I’d share. Stephen Nickel of ecoDESIGNfinca designed this country villa for himself and his wife after many frustrating delays with local architects and high construction costs. His solution was prefabricated buildings he found on the internet and had shipped over from Germany, and looking at the house, you’d never know its components were prefab.
The H-shaped villa wraps around a beautiful interior courtyard with a pool and plenty of patio space for lounging or dining.
The one-story house consists of four bedrooms, three bathrooms, a master bedroom with a dressing room and en suite, a spa with sauna, an entrance hall with a piano, and a modern kitchen and living room.
The long narrow windows in the entrance space bring in plenty of light and give subtle peeks to the pool outside.
Features of the house include: underfloor heating, insulated exterior walls, double glazed windows, and a home ventilation system and heat pump to keep the perfect temperature all year long.
The shape of the house allows for plenty of views to the pool in the courtyard, courtesy of floor-to-ceiling windows and sliding glass doors.
