I've never heard such compilations called "Listicles" but I like that.  It's always nice to have an excuse to look at cats and kittens being playful.
 
I am normally not about sharing these gif listicles. But today, I am so damn happy because of Marriage Equality in all fifty states.
All the happy dances! #SCOTUS #MarriageEquality

I signed this card to congratulate President Obama with the following comment, "Obama Cares!"  Please note that the link below is not actually a survey.  It appears DCCC needs smarter website admins.
Take this quick survey to help us plan for the 2016 election >>

PETITION TO RESTORE VOTING RIGHTS ACT!!    BIG NEWS:  Racism, bigotry and hatred are alive and well in the US and we still need legislation to ensure that citizens of color are permitted to vote.
Help us reach our goal of 25O,OOO strong standing behind President Obama.

excerpt(s):  "Let's say for a minute that you're Clemson University. Let's also say that over the last year, your campus has been engaged in a debate on what to do with your most famous building, which remains named after Ben Tillman, a man who once said:

We of the South have never recognized the right of the negro to govern white men, and we never will. We have never believed him to be equal to the white man, and we will not submit to his gratifying his lust on our wives and daughters without lynching him. I would to God the last one of them was in Africa and that none of them had ever been brought to our shores."

I suspect the ticket too is considered artwork and not to be taken too seriously.

An illegally parked art installation in Karlsruhe, Germany was ticked for 30 euro last week. The bent red Mercedes MB100D truck is the work of Austrian artist Erwin Wurm, who is famous for his distorted-vehicle pieces. It was created as part of the city's 300th birthday celebrations, and is distorted to show the “mundane from a different perspective.

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.
