E tu, Brutus?? Google tracks consumers’ online activities across all products, but users can’t even opt out ?- The Washington Post
Google said Tuesday it will require users to allow the company to follow their activities across e-mail, search, YouTube and other services, a radical shift in strategy.

I haven't decided if I am okay or upset by this. I mean, I already knew they scanned my emails and targeted ads based on certain words, and I kind of figured that Google knew what I was doing when I was on any of their sites. My initial (still forming) opinion is going to be dependent on what they do w/ the tracked info. If they share it (which FB does and which you can opt out of) then I'll be unhappy. But if they only manage the ads themselves and don't put 3rd parties in the mix, I probably won't get torqued over this.

To murder an innocent animal to deliver some meaningless message in a small town political race is lowest of the lows. Not a vengeful person, but I hope karma gets the one whose hand delivered the blow.

Downton Abbey second reason is not only a huge hit, it's just been renewed for another season!

It's all the rage in the UK because it's BBC's in addition to PBS's production. Set in just after the sinking of the Titanic, pre-war days, this period drama, with its lavish historical detail explores the lives of everyone at a grand estate called Downton, be they Lord or second cook's apprentice. This second season is even better than the first, and has moved chronologically to the second year of the First World War. The actors are primarily British, so is the series' writing. Between all the rich history, gorgeous costumes and superb acting, this has quickly become one of PBS' most widely watched and popular shows ever. In short, yes, I recommend.

ahhh... i didn't think about the vested interest of puppy mills and pet shops to assassinate the public image of pet adoption because of the consequences to their finances. very devious.

Sugar is my friend. A very loyal and yummy one.
We blame sugar for adding extra calories to almost anything we purchase in the grocery store, and call sugary snacks "junk food." But is sugar really junk?

Not sure how true this is, but oh so useful, no?

The truth comes out. They do it all the time. Humane Society is notorious for doing this. I would rather support a local SPCA and any rescue group than them. They kill and often.
