No need to reinvent the wheel. During the week, I collect my five favorite articles and then post them Friday. Look for a wide spectrum, and I welcome you to send suggestions.

1.  Are you in dire need of some free-spiritedness? Take Julia’s Gypset quiz.

2. Smart slacking = efficiency 

3. Predator Appreciation Month Olivia Judson’s The Wild Side

4. A readable collection of thoughts on investing.  From Goop, Gwyneth Paltrow’s blog.

5. A decade and a half in the making. The debut of Ardi

(Why not, a not-so-recent 6th: update on the Taung Child, the first picture I posted above, from 2006. This was major paleoanthropological news, and I remember being a bit enthralled at the time.  Oh, and once I drank Lee Berger under the table at a pub in Midrand.)

Prost! Courtney
