My "alien DNA" is singing to Bowie's
Absolutely loved this emotional, intelligent, personal, and creative testimony about the impact that Bowie's life and work had on the life and work of my dear friend's brother. I know that many others share these feelings and are shaken by this loss. I couldn't express it so eloquently, but Bowie's power to change lives, inspire art, and make us superfreaks realize that we are not alone is an eternal gift to us all - humans and aliens.

The Revenge of Aereo!
I'm so excited about this news. When SCOTUS ruled against Aereo I was so sad for them - and angry with our monopoly-protecting federal government. Chet and his team at Aereo created a fantastic, cheap DVR solution for recording over-the-air TV that was already free to anyone with an antenna. Could not believe that they were shut down just because they were competing with gouging cable providers. Now Mr. Kanojia may have the last laugh! Go, Starry Internet!!

Maybe Starry will require a phone line, too. Ask them. If Chet Kanojia has put together a top-notch customer service team for Starry like he had for Aereo, I'm sure they'll send you a response. :)

Thanks for the invitation! I turned 50 last year. I'm pretty healthy, but certainly NOT fit. Hoping to find motivation and encouragement here. My fitness foibles are a sedentary job/lifestyle and stress-eating.

"Glory is not a conceit. It is not a decoration for valor. Glory belongs to the act of being constant to something greater than yourself, to a cause, to your principles, to the people on whom you rely and who rely on you in return."
-- Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz.

Love this quote for its wisdom - and its correct usage of "who" and "whom". :-)

I love T-Mobile! The only company I can think of that keeps improving, giving their customers more, without asking for more $. Good stuff. Now, if only I had the time to binge-watch something fun.

Bake a cake with olive oil? Really?? Yes, really. If I had not read my friend's fantastic blog I never would have believed it. Stephanie knows her stuff and I trust her. So, guess I'll be buying some of the Wine Tribe recommended olive oil and baking a healthy cake this weekend. Any ideas for a healthy sugar substitute?

Single mom of an awesome 9-y-o son. Digital enthusiast, Chrome/Android/Google addict. Texan by birth, Latina en la corazón. Ironically, my name is English Atkins, but I have my degree in Spanish from Texas A&M.  Being bilingual and loving the Latin culture has led me to an exciting career and amigos fantásticos. Aggie fan during football season. Fiscal conservative, compassionate Christian who is pulled to the left on some social issues. When I'm not working or goofing around on the Internet you'll find me near the closest body of water or with my nose in a book - or both.

Air Pollution Levels In Perspective: China And The US
www.statista.com

This chart shows daily average particulate pollution (PM2.5) in the 10 worst Chinese and US cities.

The freshest, most delicious Chinese food I have ever eaten. We eat here at least once a week. Try the fried fish (with sauce or with jalapeños and garlic); the mustard greens w' tofu; the sesame cakes; the fried pork chops with jalapeños; the Chinese broccoli; any of the soups. My advice is to look at the food people are ordering around you and ask for whatever looks good. Get outside of your comfort zone and be amazed!

My son has become a different person since participating in Sun Lee Taekwondo. He is more disciplined both at home and at school. The after school program is fantastic and my son usually comes home with his homework completed. The emphasis that the school places on personal responsibility, self-control, respect of parents/elders is really making a difference in my son. Master Jason and the other instructors treat you like family and you can tell that they truly care for their students and want them to succeed in life. I highly recommend Sun Lee.

Dr. Harrington is fantastic with children. The staff is very friendly and they offer lots of nice services - free Starbucks coffee while you wait, other concierge services. However, if you need to watch your finances, be warned that their accounting office is unorganized at best and fraudulent at worst. Get quotes and pre-determination in writing before committing to treatment. The cost their business manager estimated I would have out-of-pocket after insurance was only 40% of the cost that I ended up being charged. I had to pay more than double their original quote. I realize that navigating the complexities of insurance is not easy, but that is the business manager's job. Not being able to provide estimates within +/- 15% should be unacceptable. The runaround played between their accounting office and my insurance company cost me a very unwelcome financial hit at the end of the year.
