Thanks +Mario Sotelo. I like how much more conscious it makes me as a writer.

Thank goodness. I stopped correcting it on student papers last year.
 
Hey everyone, here’s the proper way to write it—officially. It’s “internet.”

It's not something I would ever correct... but I still use it as an honorific. :-)

This. Is. Phenomenal. 

I forgot how much I've missed Stipe. I did not forget how great this song is. Love this as much as the Nirvana unplugged cover of it. Wow.

I've been writing on two old typewriters I recently purchased. One is 78- and the other is 67-years-old. Both work exactly as they should and no one who designed or manufactured either of them would be at all surprised that they work now and will continue to work into their second hundred years.

Replacing things that work with shiny things because they are shiny is foolish. Sometimes, I think it is a sin against nature.

During a keynote, Apple's Phil Schiller said people who use 5-year-old PCs are sad. We beg to differ.

You're right. No one should own that much boxed rice. It's just wrong.

Well worded and compelling. A good act of lawful rebellion. Bravo. 
We hold leases on over 1,000 acres of public land in Utah’s desert that we bought at an oil and gas auction. But we don’t plan to drill anytime soon.

Good location, nice staff, loud hallways. It's about what you would expect from a chain hotel. That said, the staff has been above par, very good really and the location is very convenient. Deep pool, but the whirlpool was closed during our stay. Bistro is nice for breakfast and serves Starbucks.

Lovely. We ordered tea for four and received sandwiches, pastries, scones, and tea that was enough to leave us happily stuffed. Not a lot of seating, but had a funky good feel.

I got an Americano and it was made quickly. Taste was good rather than great. Nice staff.

Good food, nice staff. Nothing to write home about. We wanted soup, coffee, and light fare. That's exactly what we got. They made a good, rich Americano.

Tremendously likable people serving really good food. The crepes were good but the Gelato was even better. My kids loved it!
