Dinner Tonight #64

February 27, 2020

 

I had been planning to make cottage pie for dinner.  But this morning I forgot and used some leftover mashed potatoes to make a hash. Not wanting to double down on the mash I decided to make a cottage pie pie, with pastry instead of potatoes.  Worked out pretty good!

Smithsonian Opens Up Images

February 27, 2020

In an effort to promote access to its resources and increase public engagement, the Smithsonian Institution has released 2.8 million images from copyright restrictions on its site, Smithsonian Open Access.  Visitors to the website can download and use the files in whatever way they wish without requesting express permission from the organization.

 

Made available from the institution’s 19 museums, nine research centers, libraries, archives, and the National Zoo, samplers now have an enormous range of new images to work with.
