The Library of Congress recently uploaded more than 3,000 photos to Flickr. And many of them are vivid color images taken by photographers working for the Farm Security Administration (FSA) and the Office of War Information (OWI) between 1939 and 1944. By putting them on Flickr, the LOC is hoping to have the public tag, notate and add information about the copyright-free images. Read more about the project on the Library of Congress blog.

Mmm beer–dogs love it and now the Japanese company Petcomyu is finally giving dogs what they want. Happy Lager, is a beer designed for dogs that is non-alcoholic and flavored with beef extract. Looks like they love it. It’s almost as funny as Sangaria’s beer for kids. Personally, I like the looks of the stout this one kid is drinking. It could be fake beer, I don’t know. Watch more here. Kampai!
