Interesting perspective.

#GMO
 
I find this hard to believe, so maybe it contains a truth.
Food labeling initiatives that were originally meant to take GMOs down a peg bother biotechnology advocates, but the deb…

I like short URLs for things to be made more easily discoverable. Such as linking to a public web site, something that is in no way meant to be obscure.  Also, for short-lived goals.   I have no confidence that the middleman processing the URLs will stick around.

I really dislike short (ie. obscurant) URLs when I want to know what I'm clicking on before I click. It's a trust thing.    If some stranger post some bitly link I am reluctant to click.

+energyaustralia has started sending me some else's account info. They don't bother verifying email addresses.

Nor can I just write back to tell them of their mistake: "Unfortunately this mailbox is not monitored."

It's the full package of indifference.

I give this bookstore double thumbs-up on everything, but this only makes sense if you know what kind of place this is. It sells used books and magazines, with a strong focus on The West. I would have liked to see a larger collection of sci-fi and graphic novels, but that's just a matter of personal taste. I was really amazed at the range of Western items, plus the collection of cookbook's children's books, and history items. If by some chance you're looking for a VHS tape of something you may just find it here, too. The owner is very nice; offered my wife and I some cold drinking water. BTW, there's no A/C in the store, so if you go in the summer it will be warm. There are fans, and I didn't mind the heat, but just so you know. I've been to a fair number of used-book stores, and many of them are just collections of whatever other people don't want. Reader's Oasis, however, has a much more curated feel. Note: If you don't already know, the owner is a naturalist. When I stopped in he was wearing nothing more that a big hat, an big grin, and a partial loincloth. I say more power to him, and I don't care what he wears (or doesn't ) but it's probably not what you usually see at a book store.

I enjoyed the Bamboo Club; a little pricey but good food. However, the one at Desert Ridge has closed.

Horrible. Avoid. Overpriced and they serve junk. On the bright side you get a lot of that junk, but it's so poorly done it's almost laughable. They have no idea how to make a Ceaser Salad (hint: do not use vinaigrette); the shrimp cocktail is served pre-smothered in sauce; the linguini is a awash in over-salted cream sauce, drowning the flavor of the assorted bits of seafood. The crab cakes are mealy and weak. There are many other restaurants in the same area; hard to imagine they could be worse.
