I know I don't get enough sleep. And I know a lot of people who don't either.

I've stopped wearing it as a badge of honour, though (mainly because the badge was too heavy to wear when I hadn't had enough sleep). 
 
My latest cartoon from +Beth Kanter and +Aliza Sherman's book The Happy, Healthy Nonprofit. (Check it out: http://bit.ly/happyhealthynpbook).

Today's cartoon is about sleep. Are you getting enough?
Sleep-avoidance is a holy sacrament in the Church of Very Busy People. And truth be told, I’m a more observant member of the congregation than I’d like to think I am. But I’m working on it. In fact, the moment I wrote that last night I recognized what I was doing and went to bed. There’s a particularly… Continue reading 40 winks

And you thought there was some line of decency he wouldn't cross. #trumpcap

Looks like a sphincter. Also appropriate.

So if you were inconvenienced today because a device unexpectedly restarted, you can at least tell yourself you're just like NASA. Hell, you're practically an astronaut!
 
Our Juno spacecraft entered safe mode Tuesday, and early indications are a software performance monitor induced a reboot of the spacecraft’s onboard computer. The spacecraft acted as expected during the transition into safe mode, restarted successfully and is healthy. All instruments are off, and the planned science data collection for today’s close flyby of Jupiter did not occur. The next close flyby is scheduled on Dec. 11, with all science instruments on.

We're at the point now where if someone says, "Did you hear about that line of human decency Trump crossed today?" you have to ask them if it's the one he crossed in the morning, the afternoon or the evening. #trumpcap

Full disclosure: I'm a friend of one of the owners. But now I'm also a fan. Madeline and her husband Scott have created 11 wonderfully decorated cabins, each with its own distinctive theme and all with an incredible eye for detail. With too many places, "funky" turns out to mean a jumble of random, mismatched kitsch. But here, it means the items in each cabin have been playfully but painstakingly sourced to create the perfect effect – from a cabin for crafters and creators, to another for explorers, birders and stargazers, and still another (the one we stayed in) that romantically celebrates the courtship of Madeline's parents, William and Mildred. And we didn't have to trade comfort for coolness. Between the jets of the soaker tub in our cabin, the kitchenette, the remote-controlled gas fireplaces in each room (one for us, one for the kids) and the west-facing barbecue-and-briquette-equipped deck perfect for watching the sun set over the Pacific, we were sorely tempted to forego the shops of Mendocino and the tidal pools on Glass Beach, and just hang out for our whole stay. That was doubly appealing to our kids, who were thrilled by the Andiron's two resident goats (Peanut Butter and Jelly), the extensive collection of vintage board games, the flocks of woodpeckers and other gorgeous birds that sweep through the property, and the morning all-you-can-spread toast bar. For their parents, the five o'clock happy hour on weekends, pairing delicious food (fondue one night, tamales and quesadillas the next) with local beer and wine – not to mention warm, welcoming conversation with Madeleine and Scott and the other guests – will remain one of the highlights of our holiday. There's no cell phone service along this stretch of Highway 1, but between free WiFi, in-room phones and a pay phone at the inn's office, we were easily able to keep in touch as much as we needed... and as little as we wanted. Oh, and there's a nice, big hot tub. And an extensive DVD library. And a geocaching kit. And a coffeemaker in our cabin with pre-ground coffee *and* beans and a grinder. We loved it.

Wow... good music but not drink-up-and-get-TF-out loud, and staff who go out of their way to make sure you get what you want (and not just what you order). Plus non-flaky WiFi, and chocolate milk for grown-ups.

It was hard to imagine Vancouver's Best Coffee being replaced by something even better. Live and learn!
