Today the Senate has passed new legislation to end excessive credit card surcharges! http://goo.gl/kXd8Pt

Another Life - Another Time
Off
to starboard, the blinks of small cats eyes were stars an
unfathomable number of light years away. As the distance closed,
they grew in size or intensity. It wasn’t black out there not as black is meant to be. It’s a beautiful empty expanse with bauble...
