    I remember one time when I was severely burnt out and exhausted from overwork and long hours traveling. One morning when I was sitting at the kitchen table propping up my head and barely able to keep...

    I drop collision when the car is about 5-6 years old. My car is now 13 years old and I haven't had collision on it for years. I tend to self-insure if possible. DH has the opposite mindset. We are...

    Your friend has her life and you have yours, and yours sounds perfect.

    I'm kind of happy with my life rhythm. I would like LESS of the "scale" of the rhythm of my song to be devoted to work.

    I think the "logo" is the symbol (the bird, the arrow, the "L"), but all companies use their name/tagline along with the logo. I don't see any issue with the way they're being polled here.

    I chose #2, the one with the bird, but not for the reason happystuff did (although I do like birds).

    The others seem a little too corporate, less personal--especially #1--I guess L stands for...

    I agree that his opponents are going to try to distort Bernie's democratic socialism. His success will depend on his ability to define his brand of "socialism" as the kind happy Scandinavian...

    I had a bit of a "spiritual awakening" in high school, because my childhood was so rough and joyless. But when I was 12 and my alcoholic father left, my mother remarried and we started having a...

    I read something that said that sleep is the bridge between hope and despair. There's something about the restorative nature of sleep that is absolutely essential to our wellbeing. I never understood...

    I got an interesting insight from my boss about buying lottery tickets. When she was asked if she bought lottery tickets, she said she didn't because she "works too hard." I think her point was her...

    From this article in the NYTimes today, talking about one huge reason our system is bloated:


    As a matter of ethics and equality, this should be O.K.; sticking with a system that is the source of...

    Depends on what you call suffering. If you're talking about the suffering of one of my latest interviewees, who has diabetes and her HbA1c numbers were really going down due to her medication, but...

    I will never believe that Bernie Sanders would ever put working class people in a position where they're worse off. He said as much at the debates, and I believe him.

    It's a beautiful house, and what a great location on the water/canals! Having lived in the NE my whole life, lanais with in-ground pools are strange and wonderful things to me.

    BTW, how are you...

    Absolutely! That's good for the employers, too! They don't have to pay for their employees' healthcare, which frees up money for other business needs. Also, their employees that want to do something...

    Yes, well said. That's how easy it can be, and it would cut out at least 2 levels of middlemen and give negotiating power over drugs and hospitals to a central body. CMS functions quite well, IMO.

    Compared to what I was paying in the private sector (1600/month), I'm thrilled with Medicare. We have Supplemental Plan F (which is being phased out apparently) which covers so much. We have a very...

    My feeling is it's the bloated system. I make more than my primary care doctor, and I only have a B.A. I think the "long waiting times" is a myth. We do have a litigious response to medical...

    Well, even though I'm going to nibble at the hand that feeds me, I'll give you my perspective, FWIW. Here are some of the dynamics behind the "greedy Big Pharma" diatribe:
