Very wise.
The only good notebook is the one you're carrying.  It's no use to you if it's still sitting at home because you don't want to bend it or it's too difficult to carry or you can think of any other e...

On a happier note:  Hatsune Miku!

It isn't easy, but what is?
Sara Creech's nursing career fell apart after she returned from Iraq with PTSD. She found purpose — and a new path — on the farm. Now, the USDA is giving veterans like her more financial support.

Was looking into a bra-shopping app that I got an email for, but after investigating decided to go with what I've loved and has worked for me since the mid-1990s: Decent Exposures.  Bonus: local/Seattle, woman-owned, fair wage paying, ethical company. Plus their garments of all kinds are comfortable and very long-wearing.  They are more than happy to do custom work or alterations to make sure things fit the way you want them to.  (Also: latex-free elastic is available, and all of their items are constructed so that the elastic is covered and doesn't touch your skin.)

I am going to blame it on my chronic depression. but something about this story makes me want to weep, uncontrollably. 

(I probably feel sorry for the cats.  Yes, the non-existant ray-kitty ones.)
To tell the mythology of Yucca Mountain, we might as well start with the fees. In 1983, a small fee of just a tenth of a penny per kilowatt-hour began appearing on electricity bills in America. The money was meant for Yucca Mountain, a wrinkle of land on the edge of the Nevada Test Site that was ...

Caring, well-organized and thoughtful program. 12-step focus; attendance at onsite Alcoholics/Narcotics Anonymous meetings required. An Intensive Outpatient Program is available for continuing recovery assistance. Will help with finding clean & sober housing for post-treatment by request. Co-ed; separate men's and women's wings for living quarters, but classes and activities are mixed. Rooms have two or three beds; showers and toilets are separate but plentiful - over my 19 day stay I never had to wait to get into either. Bottom line: you'll get out it what you put into it, but if you are serious about recovery from alcohol or drug addiction, I recommend it. If you aren't, you'll be unhappy and wasting your time.
