What would you rather have: a happy life or a meaningful life?
If you’re like 45 percent of Americans, you are setting New Year’s resolutions with the aim of leading a happier life: One of the most popular, according to Nielsen, is to “enjoy life to the fullest.” In surveys, most people list happiness as their top value, and self-help books and life coaches make up part of a multibillion-dollar industry.
But should happiness really be the only goal that motivates us?

So, it's a pressure cooker? Maybe not "stupid-proof" enough for average American (which I'm one...)

I'm liking crock pots, or slow cookers. You throw a bunch of stuff in, and go away for 8 hours. When you come back, you have perfectly slow simmered food. All the flavors get deliciously around.

A rookie mistake is sharing all your content at once in a huge bunch and then going long stretches without anything else. Don’t do this.

+Joshua Villamizar "veto him"? What does that even mean? You think it's a bad idea to elect "a billionaire who (has) run a successful company" but you have no problem with turning it over to a disbarred community organizer whose only "qualification" was half a term as a junior senator from a bankrupt state? I think you're a liberal who happens to like firearms.

"...it’s the nonchalance with which he went back on his word after hammering it repeatedly during the campaign. The ease and quickness with which he reversed his position shook me to my core. I realized in that moment that I had voted for a demagogue. And it was sickening." http://bit.ly/2jyWPkR
It took me just a few days to realize I’d supported a demagogue.

Swamp! Trump Budget Nominee Did Not Pay Taxes for Employee http://bit.ly/2iKGMvx
The disclosure that the nominee, Mick Mulvaney, failed to pay more than $15,000 in payroll taxes for a babysitter raised questions about his nomination.

+Rodney Dishman The job title doesn't matter. Someone was hired, part or full time, to assist them in the house after having triplets. When someone is hired, there are taxes to be paid.

Honestly, I don't think it's a big story. It doesn't sound like a lot of money, he's taken all the right steps to correct the situation with the IRS...

But, Congress have historically not taken kindly to nominees who have tax issues.

"When the previously unthinkable becomes normalized, it is easy for many to lose, or at the very least ignore, their moral compass. How quickly Trump’s brand of anti-immigrant and anti-Muslim rhetoric, off-the-cuff foreign policymaking, and systematic mixing of family and state are becoming accepted is more than a cause for passing concern." <br><br>http://atfp.co/2jyThPw"<br>
America's institutions weren't designed to resist a modern strongman. That leaves civil society.

+thessa B. Exactly. You dont care about him, or for him, so we as a people need to stand together and do what we can to make that known. We need to be calling up key senators and house representatives speaking up and out against his cabinet member choices and any other issues we have with him and his policies... We voted him in, we can vote him out as well. I still feel like we should give him a chance, though. And if he's still as much of an asshole as he is now, then we get our hands dirty and do what we can to get him TF out!!

I wrote much of Enchantment, What the Plus!, and APE at La Tartine. I love that there's lots of parking across the street, there's good Wifi, and there are no VCs eating there. The staff is very nice, and the food is very good. It's as close to the Seine as you can get in Redwood City. :-) It would be nice if there were electric plugs on the east side of the restaurant.
