Re: tragic

Yeah I'm going to disagree as well although it's anecdotal, but since the anecdote was moi it carries a lot of weight with me. Two, three years ago I miss my first flu shot in many years ... and I got the flu. I lost a solid month of my life, and the [more]

Re: Ms. Insulin Dependent America

Honestly? If I had just glanced at the photo or seen a person in real life on the beach I never even would have thought insulin pump. Young people these days seem to have so many bits and pieces of electronics attached to their bodies that an insulin [more]

Re: Lunch help needed

Nah. Tried that. Tried several varieties of the insulated lunch bag, cup, bowl etc. Invariably by the time lunch rolled around the hot stuff was tepid with a hint of hot left and the cold stuff was tepid with a hint of cool left. For keeping stuff [more]

Re: Lunch help needed

Probably won't keep anything molten hot, but should keep things warmish.

Actually a really good thermos will indeed keep that soup molten hot, at least if you eat lunch the same day you put it in the thermos. I packed my children's [more]

Re: How to grow a garden.

hmmm...another nice thing about giving credit is that you see the folks that put together that chart are in the UK. Think I might need to tweek it a bit as to account for the slight climate differences between England and the west Texas desert.

Re: the only atheist at work

I mostly kept my mouth shut. Because on both religion and politics I was definitely an outlier. When I did speak up it eventually gained me a reputation as a charming eccentric. Like my ideas where untenable but they were going to give me a pass for [more]

Oops. I see that just about everyone that actually has a faint understanding of the difference between taking the MAP and BC beat me to answering the question. I also see that Hawkwin has segued into "but - but if it's OTC then those crazy [more]

Re: Worst Supreme Court EVER

Ask yourself this: Why is it that we offer the "morning after pill" OTC but not BC without a prescription? Doesn't that seem odd?

Re: 2nd Hand Stores

Re: An Open Letter

I don't know I this understanding has been shaped by current culture or if it has dictionary blessing but for me the difference between 'militant' and 'terrorist' is that while both may be engaged in acts of death/destruction the militant directs his [more]

Cosmos vs. Cosmos

I finally got around to checking out the Sagan Cosmos DVDs from the library for my child's viewing entertainment. Her definite opinion is that Tyson's Cosmos wins hands down although she did concede that Sagan had a far more awesome [more]

Since I have children I very much want to know if there are guns in the house before I let my kids go over for a playdate or a sleepover. Actually of more concern to me is the attitude of the adults in the house with respect to the guns if any. That [more]

Re: Cosmos 4/27

The current Cosmos seems a little lightweight to me in contrast to the classic Cosmos but I don't think I can trust my memory as to just what the content of the classic Cosmos was ... only the emotional "memory" of the classic episodes [more]
