In no other situation does a self-appointed group get to tell us what a word means. There is no real reason for defining Pluto out of "Planet" status other than a academic pissing contest with the world. They want to tell us what words to use and we don't have to agree. Words are defined by usage, not decree.

I kind of did neither. I was so busy having experiences (learning things) that I forgot to make any money.

Exactly.... 
You don't have infinite money. Spend it on stuff that research says makes you happy.

Well, I just had a great dinner and a pleasant night out (I know, but I wake up early).

I went to the "Brazil Grill" which is north of Lexington on Paris Pike (North Broadway). It was charming and intimate, almost deserted at the early hour, but the food and service were perfect. The setting was in the horse country of Kentucky, which is the most beautiful area I know, in what seems to be a home made over into a restaurant. The meal was a buffet with (I suppose) Brazilian side dishes, and the meats were wood grilled and brought in an unending parade to our table. The owner delivered meat on skweres, sliding off small portions for us every few minutes or so.The owner and the chef both came to our table to introduce us to the selections, and the wait staff brought side dishes of bread, plantain, fruit and drinks to us. It was both quaint, oddly formal and very delicious. While some of the breads were not for me, too much sugar and starch, and one of the hot sauces was a little oily for me, everything else was wonderful. 

This guy and his family needs to get rich doing this amazing service. You should go out there and have dinner. It's an event. Hopefully he will soon be moving to a better facility closer to town, and will be able to have the one thing we missed, a good wine menu.

I've been to a place like that. One of the most enjoyable meals I've ever had.

I can't believe I read the whole "Diamond Age" by Neal Stephenson and it dropped me off at the end like that. I had avoided reading it because I haven't really enjoyed other cyber/steam/whatever-punk stories, but it was assigned to me so I read through it. On the last page my only thought was, "Where is volume two?" Not that I liked it that much (it's not bad, interesting in an outdated way) but because I felt like I had invested enough hours in reading it that I deserved to have some sort of conclusion.

As far as I can see, there is no continuation of this story. Please, someone tell me I'm wrong.

Neal Stephenson writes interesting and engaging worlds, but has less than satisfying endings.

I still rate that book as one of my favorites, and am glad I read it.

So... I got the notice for android 5.1 on my nexus 7, but I'm hesitant to put it on. Has anyone heard anything about it for N7 (2013) either good or bad?

Facing the student's dilemma - do I sleep more so that I can think during the exam, or study more so I have something to think about during the exam.

My personnel experience is that if I have to pull an all nighter prepping for a test the next day I will do worse. If I do not know the info the day before its too late. Cramming just caused me to be tire and stressed during test. I personnel would get good sleep night before, and ate a good breakfast day of exam and had one cup coffee to stimulate brain.

Driven into town for this unscripted and impromptu coffee conversation with the woman of the people.

Reposting so I can find it easier.
 
Just one more fight before I'm old, that's how I like it.

Nothing in the world can stop me now!
Introduction
I circle back people who interact through posting in a considerate and reasonable way. Thank you for circling me and please join the conversation.

I'm retired from being a homeschooling SAHD and now have empty nest syndrome. I've gone back to college to get a degree in Biology. I'm an obsessive science-fiction reader, a compulsive inventor, and I have a disordered apartment in a college town. I play the Ukulele in a style borrowed from John King, may he rest in peace. I'm on the spectrum and I feel good about that. I can just about program my way out of a wet paper bag, I've been working with Artificial Intelligence for 10 years, I've recently invented a new method of ceramic construction, a new type of flute, a new knot (salamander hitch), and I make my own bacon fat mayonnaise. I've been working on my own constructed language for 30 years, but I don't have anyone to speak it with. I'm finally learning Japanese. I believe that we have an immaterial part which science is not yet able to measure, but that when, some day, we are able to, it still won't remove the spiritual aspect of it.

Don't let the slightly dilapidated greenhouses put you off. This is a hidden treasure.

This is just a coffee house, a really good one, but nothing trendy and fabulous. That's what I like about it. There are separate rooms, quiet tables, and good coffee. Perfect for students or conversation with friends. No, they don't have professional performing Baristas's , but they have friendly servers. If you want something fancy, go somewhere else. But if you like coffee and quiet times with friends, it's a great place for that. Plus!... occasional amateur music.

A great old fashioned movie house with interesting architectural details, large screens, live stages, art gallery and an eclectic snack bar with OBC root beer and local wines. A great place to see independent or special interest movies you won't see at the franchise multiplex cinema.

I had coffee there while waiting for something else. And while everything looked good, I didn't get a chance to try anything. The coffee, however, was great.
