P.S. My house is outfitted with a sophisticated security system that includes security cameras and other motion-detection gear and alarms, plus a strong man who’s very adept at using guns, in addition to a large, loud, easily angered dog, plus very watchful neighbors who keep an eye on everything happening nearby … so, would-be burglars? Stay away!

Thanks to a new city law, all construction sites must now have a “viewing panel” that lets you peek in and see what’s going on. We explained the law on the Brian Lehrer Show blog, and asked you to snap a picture through that little diamond-shaped peephole. Now, here are our favorite of your photos.
-Jody, BL Show-
Gotta say I like this.
Bluebonnets – on a street corner in central Houston – *not* in a spot where you’d expect to see Texas wildflowers growing. What a great sight!
The street corner serves as a METRO bus stop.
