Holiday reading:  do dogs have EI?
Plenty of people would like to think so.  Joey Turner has a go.  Personally, I am not sure how you could find out (at least not until we learn doggy language).
Are you human?
Dogs might fail this amusing—short—TED videoZe Frank asks some interesting questions to see if you’re human.  I like the way the important ones are dropped in between the humorous ones.  Bit like life, that   [4:29]
[That's more than enough of that doggy stuff!—Ed.]

All contributions welcome. 
If you have been, thank you for reading.

Stuff and things
Why are children so attached to their teddybear?  Are we, as adults, what we own?  Our attachment to stuff starts young, explains Christian Jarrett.
Music of the week
The startlingly good Sandee/van Nieukerken piano duo plays part of Steve Martland’s Dance works for two pianos.  It’s infectiously joyous music (no dogs I am afraid). I hope you appreciate the exhilaration and sweep of this music [4:40].
Quotations of the day
The most affectionate creature in the world is a wet dog.
Ambrose Bierce . 1842-1914 . American satirist and critic
