I think it is fair to say that Hillary's political views will be similar to that of her husband's, and that her more recent work around the world as Secretary of State ensure's she's more in touch with world affairs than the opposition who seem obsessed with continuing to fight The Cold War against a non-existent threat.

Hillary has been lying since the Nixon days, she's not going to change now!

After noticing the fallen section appeared to have landed on a gravel car, I poked around until I found the cause of the collapse.  It would appear that the curiously feeble-looking claw-hoist posed over the fallen bridge member is what pushed it off its perch.
WASHINGTON — A pedestrian bridge fell onto the Metro and MARC train tracks in Prince George’s County, Maryland, Wednesday afternoon.

I'm very impressed that this coffee shop gave equal status to the often-overlooked INTERSEX community.
Some of the people banned Fargo, North Dakota, coffee shop owner Joe Curry does not appreciate the 56 North Dakota legislators who voted against a bill that would have ...

Never seen pole dancing anything like this before, not that I tend to watch it.

A well intentioned veterinarian builds a mobility device for one injured cat, and next thing you know you are facing an army of one cat in a tank.

Sales tax question: Food is sold tax free, supposedly because food is a necessity.  What about safety equipment like bike helmets?  I think safety equipment should be tax free.  The following article outlines the important role of an oft-overlooked injury reducing article of sports gear, though I'm sure you could think of a few other oft-overlooked items if you start thinking about it. http://www.sportsinjuryclinic.net/sport-injuries/chest-abdomen-pain/sports-bras

Story
Tagline
It wanted a "Brief" description, so I entered, "Hanes".
Introduction
I live outside Washington DC in Potomac MD.  I own the house I grew up in, inherited from my parents a few years ago.

In addition to G+, I have accounts on several sites including, but not limited, to LJ (LiveJournal) and Facebook.

I'm not certain that I will like G+, but after an entire thread was unceremoniously yanked out of my Facebook without recourse to appeal, I've decided that Facebook is not a responsible choice for intelligent people with anything useful to say.
Work
Occupation
I write, blog, fix computers, rescue data, teach people how to use Linux, invent stuff. I do what I can.
Skills
My skills are my occupation. My occupation reflects my skills. I enjoy both. It is wisely written that if you enjoy your work, you'll never work a day in your life, but either I disagree somewhat, or I'm not quoting it properly.
Employment
  • Lyme Disease
    Consultant Extraordinaire, 2001 - present
    Let me be clear, it is nearly impossible to be consistently employed while having Lyme, unless you have a very special employer who appreciates what you do so much that you are rewarded for what you do well, when you are able to do it. I am, in a sense, my own employer. My sense of satisfaction comes from knowing I'm helping those I consider worthy, even if I might not know them very well. Environmentalists, as well as other community minded people receive extra attention. For nearly the entirety of this time I've maintained the policy that I charge no fee but ask only to be reimbursed actual expenses. In other words, If I don't love you enough to do it for free, I won't do it at all.
  • me, myself and i
    owner, 1989 - 2001
    For more than a decade I extended my lifelong hobby of taking on the toughest repairs with an all or nothing approach. I especially liked proving that supposedly non-repairable equipment could not only be made to work, cost-effectively, but often better and longer lasting than before. I accumulated quite a following, and while I never made a great deal of money at it, I accumulated a large following, many of whom continue to express interest in my projects.
