The signature requirement, by Amazon, is usually based on value of the item. As far as Postal Service deliveries, as long as there is a safe place to leave it, it will be delivered. Of course the places this would be considered racist, I doubt it would be a safe place to leave it.

Walking from my car to my home, in Mosaic Commons, this evening, loaded down with backpack and groceries, I noticed a black Ford F350 being driven uncertainly in my general direction.

Let me explain that this kind of vehicle is very unusual in my cohousing community -- he have a plethora of hybrids, mostly Priuses; pickups are nearly unknown among the 68 homes here. It stopped behind me, and I heard the driver rolling down his window.

He called out, just loud enough for me to hear him, "Ernest?"

Astonished, I turned around and said, "Yes, that's me." What the...?

"Oh, good." There was a short pause as he opened his door. "I am about to do you a big, big favor," he said.

"Oh?"

He showed me my own wallet. "Is this yours?"

I was stunned, and then grateful. I had no idea I'd lost it. "Yes! Where did you find it?"

"I think you must have left it on top of your car. My wife found it. It was in the street, and all of the cards had flown out, all around it. It was a mess. It took her a while to get everything." He got out of the truck. He was a handsome young man, and from the other side of the truck, a child of perhaps 10 or 11 years, his son, had also gotten out and come around toward us.

I put down my load and shook their hands. "Thanks so much!" I took the wallet, opened it, made a quick check for contents, and removed a $20 bill, which I offered to him.

"Oh, no, I can't take it."

"Then take it for your son's savings. Thank you so much."

His son smiled, and looked toward his dad.

"Well, ok, sure." He took the $20 and handed it to his son. They turned and walked back to the truck.

"What's your name?" I asked, as he climbed back in.

"Kevin."

"Well, thanks a lot, Kevin!"

Haines, Alaska, is one of my favorite places on earth.

#ft #alaska #hainesAK #cruiseships
Haines will see a drop in cruise ship visitors this summer. But the tourism department says traffic will increase next summer, partly because of docking fee waivers. http://khns.org/wp-content/uploads/2016/04/07CruiseHaineswINTRO.mp3 · Last year, two especially large cruise ships visited Haines ...

This is a few orders of magnitude more concerning than ending a free service like Reader. This is, in my opinion, Google turning away from its "do no evil" stance. (Tip o' the hat to Wayne Bryant on that other social network.)

I'm not even sure that the Boeing article is wrong (I've never done any research on revolv at all). I just noticed there's an obvious disconnect.

A thoughtful rejoinder to recent critiques of open marriages and polyamorous relationships. #polyamory #openmarriage #sartre #debeauvoir #ft #feminism


The open relationship between Simone de Beauvoir and Jean-Paul Sartre is frequently and wrongly written off. Such arrangements have women-friendly roots

Maybe this explains why people don't respond well when I try to correct their grammar, or remove their inappropriate apostrophes.
