He just called me over and said he wanted to thank "us" for the beautiful music and singing he was hearing. This certainly took me by surprise as there was no music playing. I guess he is hearing, in his head, the glorious sounds of [more]

Grilled cheese yes but with both Miracle Whip and sliced dill pickle in the middle and a side of Campbell's Tomato soup.

Although my dad is a part of the Scripps Hospital Medical Care (really wonderful) she thinks all the great doctors are in Orange County and she wants him seen there. I laugh because when he goes with me to church he can barely last the two hours [more]

An Open Letter

An open letter to the guy in back of me today.

If you had paid more attention to what was going on around you, and less to whatever you were texting someone, you would have noticed my left blinker going. Assuming you had driver's ed at some [more]

Re: ethics in LBYM

I also don't like it when business tack on extra fees based on payment type - such as when businesses say they accept credit cards, but change you 2.5% extra to pay that way because they really don't want to accept that form of payment, but don't [more]

Humphrey has been waiting

Lauren Bacall, a glamorous star in the days when stars had glamour, died at the age of 89.

She got her start when Howard Hawks wife spotted a picture in a magazine and bet her husband he could turn the girl into a star. He did.

Re: Jeff Fischer, PLEASE stop spamming me

But I do know that the code for the boards was written when they were still charging us to use them. They certainly don't seem to be any money maintaining them these days!

Or rather, panoramic shots that didn't work the way they were intended to (for the most part) but are still amazing to look at.

Re: Creating a will?

I am considering doing the update using online resources and am interested in your opinions/experiences in so doing. While by no means a newbie at this, I am not a legal expert and I don't want to leave behind a mess for the sake of a few bucks. [more]

Re: Medical Update on Me

When I had a needle biopsy, it was done on a table with my boob poking through a hole.

I had one of those. You lie face-down on a table with your boobs hanging.

Re: A new law school

Apparently. If the site was up it would probably make more sense, but I gather that there are two ships in Fairbanks (which is an inland city, but is on a large river) and the students will live or study on the ships.

Re: Grocery shopping?

I saw that yesterday, and I don't buy it for a minute, save for the part about Shaw's and S&S being way more expensive. Also, it doesn't take house brands into account, and that's where the biggest savings lie.

A site to have fun with

I was trying to find out what "bay" cloth meant, and the search led me to a site called Phrontistery, where, in a long list of types of cloth, the word "baize" became the most likely suspect.
