Last year sometime, Jeremiah bought me an orchid. It was big and pretty and covered in blooms. I put it on my desk and appreciated the heck out of it. I think it felt my appreciation and used it in place of water because I am...

Procrastination is my friend. To make it less friendly, I have a new method of getting things done.

My orchid bloomed, so I've got that going for me, which is nice.
Last year sometime, Jeremiah bought me an orchid. It was big and pretty and covered in blooms. I put it on my desk and appreciated the heck out of it. I think it felt my appreciation and used it in place of water because I am bad at plants. Well all the blo...

Pie charts are my friend but I'd like them a LOT better if they were actual pie.

Aggie Catholics: 29 Years Old and Hears Voice For First Time

29 Years Old and Hears Voice For First Time. Wow. What an amazing video. From the description of the video: I was born deaf and 8 weeks ago

I saw Dr. Thompson today because of sensitivity in my upper right teeth. My appointment was at 1:20, and I was ushered in immediately. I was greeted by a very friendly hygenist (I am terrible with names and sadly don't remember hers) and Dr. Thompson himself. He explained what he thought was going on with my teeth, and then took xrays to confirm it. Dr. Thompson was very gentle and explained the issue thoroughly to me, including causes and treatment paths. I have some mild dental phobia, and Dr. Thompson and his staff were excellent to work with. I am returning for a cleaning in the upcoming weeks and look forward to a positive relationship with Real Life Dental Care.

I am extremely happy with my experience at Bellinger Tire in Salem Oregon today. I brought my truck in to have the oil changed and to check the engine lights and to determine why it was missing when going up hills. The guys were great, changed the oil, cleaned an air flow sensor and determined that my brakes needed to be replaced. The price I was quoted was reasonable and the final bill was less than anticipated. I had a great experience here today with my 99 Tacoma and would highly recommend them to you.
