Noirmoutier Indigo Campsite, France
As recommended by J & F:

'Most of the campsites we've stayed in have had great facilities for kids - pools, activities, entertainment etc - but the problem with that is you spend your day being dragged from one to the other. There's none of that at Camping Indigo in Noirmoutier apart from a playground, some kayaks and some music in the bar at night but it is on the beach so the kids either run wild around the campsite or play on the beach - it was the best and most relaxing holiday we ever had and we definitely met the coolest people there. There's a really nice town in the centre of the island and great beaches all around it so hire bikes and roam free.'

Bookmarking for next year's holiday planning!

Me vs An Post
Increasingly bizarre postal address obfuscation with An Post, the Irish postal service. Example:
I have decided to see what you can post [....] My first experiment was a dice [sic] with one line of the address on each side. An Post delivered two days later. They win this round

Making your kid play organized sports could cost them their creativity
in spite of an overtly conservative analysis, the results were stark: time spent playing informal sports was significantly and positively related to overall creativity, while time spent playing organized sports was significantly and negatively related to overall creativity.

Why it's time to lighten up about "weird" Japan
'Being majime (too serious) is not cool in Japan; likewise it is important for voyeurs of Japanese culture to recognize that most everything pop-culture-y that is exported to the West comes at us with a wink. If you're all up in arms about it, then maybe the joke is on you.'
