I drive an orange car. Hmmm.

"“Orange is the new hot car color when it comes to men’s preferences,” said iSeeCars CEO Phong Ly in a statement. “The most popular car colors—black, white, and silver—didn’t change dramatically, but what’s striking is how much more interest men have for the nontraditional colors now.”"

I am not a man. OTOH, my son did provide a small amount of input into the color choice (and the car choice).

Also from Boston Globe (sorry -- some of this is probably paywalled and I always forget that because I pay to support my local paper):

"Sarah J. Clark, associate director of the University of Michigan C. S. Mott Children’s Hospital National Poll on Children’s Health, which included 569 parents of children newborn to 4 years old." is quoted saying:

"Clark recommends a careful approach to posting about kids. She suggests using a child’s initial instead of full name when posting on a forum or blog, for instance, and leaving out the names of parks or other details that could be used to locate a child."

Might be worth digging up the poll as a whole. Clark is right that we're setting a lot of the etiquette/ground rules for How To Do This Social Media About One's Kids thing.
