A nice compilation I made of Brian Eno's most soothing, relaxing, and quiet ambient music to work/sleep/meditate by. Enjoy!

this seems to make sense. make road out of the crap we can't figure out how to get rid of quickly.
make roads out of a recyclable material we have a lot of, is a resource we waste way too much of, and one that is incredibly strong when crated properly.
make the thing we hope will last the longest out of the material we have proven lasts the longest.....

A cool effect of the lighting on my ceiling. To me it looks like clouds and sky above me where there is really white plaster.

500+ days to get the full download from New Horizons...that puts the waiting in perspective nicely. 
 
Our New Horizons spacecraft still has 50 gigabits of data remaining on board from its #PlutoFlyby. To completely downlink all of this data, it will take 500 days! Learn why in today’s ‘Pluto in a Minute’: https://youtu.be/RjEesn2TFBA

In fact, it's not just forced-birth advocates[1]; the Right in general seems to believe in lying as a way of life. This is consistent with their authoritarian need for hierarchy -- people at the top make the decisions, and everyone else's job is to justify, obey, and cheerlead those decisions, no matter what the evidence shows. A guy named Leo Strauss advocated this kind of cheerleading and justification as the "noble lie"[2].

Even understanding the psychology behind it[3], it's still kind of amazing how many they tell, how unapologetic they are about their apparent misunderstanding of reality... and how much Fox News is responsible for nurturing and encouraging the general attitude that facts don't matter.

How many of these lies did you swallow in passing? I'm pretty sure I've let at least one or two of them slip by, in the course of some debate or other, because they just seem so reasonable...

It's good to see that the facts are being checked, and the lies are being noted and slowly accumulated in public lists. Eventually they will give us enough ammunition to blow them out of the water for good. I hope.

Heritage is a great place to bring your family business. We are a family of 4 and we just got our 4th vehicle (a 2014 Rav4 XLE) from Heritage Toyota. We were treated great - with respect and care, and we got a great deal we are 100% happy with. The dealership is very nice, clean, and comfortable, and we felt very welcome. Our salesman Rob Iandoli was great! Very friendly guy, greeted us when we arrived and didn't abandon us at any point, made sure we understood the answers to all our questions and didn't rush us a bit. When the deal got down to the end there weren't any surprises except how kindly and quickly Rob accepted our few last little requests to really make us feel like we made out! The buying experience was perfect and we will be back for sure for car #5 whenever the time comes. You definitely should let them make you and offer when you buy next.

L'Amante is our favorite restaurant in town I'd say. Personable and fun staff, and the food is wonderful. We go all the time without reservations and sit in the bar where it's fun and friendly. Kathy and Ian always treat us well and we save our pennies all the time to enjoy this special treat. The penne is great and if you get there early order the squash blossoms!
