    I'm on to Brain Maker, by David Perlmutter, MD, about the gut-brain connection. The Family Gene was interesting, but frustratingly a story without resolution, given the state of medical knowledge.

    I worked for a time next to an odd duck that used to have lengthy conversations with his wife about her chronic constipation. I would have welcomed a good old-fashioned fight. :help:

    I'm glad I was mostly impervious to that particular social message.

    I'm with others who feel that a solid relationship shouldn't take hard work. Of course, there's give and take, ups and downs,...

    My flip phone has a camera. It has web access too, but on a 1.5 inch screen, why bother.

    When I'm abroad in the world, I appreciate my smart phone.

    Ditto. I use mine as a pager--people call me and I decide whether or not to call back, effectively freeing me from annoying junk calls--and emergencies, which--Thankfully, I haven't had yet. But I...

    I did enough aerobic retail in years gone by that I should have had my fill of it. For most purchases, I'm more than satisfied with one-click shopping.

    I'm also thrilled that there is such a thing...

    After having had a theft from my mailbox, I sprung for a PO box. But I often get stuff delivered too, because between Amazon and UPS, I can usually anticipate its arrival within a few minutes. I also...

    Have your husband clean the guest room. Hire a kid to muck out the stalls. Grab your muse and get started on the pottery. There, done.

    I like Gabbard, too. I think we have a lot of smart, hard-working candidates, frankly. Hawaii does well in that regard.

    Ha! I was browsing local real estate yesterday, and you're not far off. Pedestrian condos in this area are running $500k, which is depressing. Maybe I should reconsider dusty little Maupin.

    Wow--that was fast! I'm three days into Fear. The missile defense sections would be hilarious if I lived in Guatemala or something.

    I don't begrudge any wealthy person either their money (unless ill-gotten) or their stuff. I do think having that many houses is a form of hoarding, and that doesn't bother me either--she hoards...

    "Turtle face" is as complicit as sin.

    "Find a crime?" It seems the DOJ has found scores of them--unless you think money laundering, racketeering, etc. is just business as usual.

    I agree--the freedom to live my life in my own (bumbling) way is sweet. Others can have their "experiences."
