    Exactly. Moving on my own didn't seem like such an impossibility when I was young and spry. I feel your paralysis.

    Ten days ago it was freezing, and this week we segued right into summer with temperatures in the high seventies. Pass Spring, go directly to Summer. I'm not surprised fire season has started already.

    No--it's a glorious day here--bright and sunny (which highlights every flaw in this cursed house...) with an occasional breezy gust--so I can't blame it on the weather.

    I'm not usually so cranky. I warmed up a carby casserole, which wasn't at all satisfying, but may put me in a mini-coma. Maybe I'll take a nap. Thanks for commiserating...

    I love the idea of sampler quilts, and these--with small blocks--are exceptionally attractive. Black fabric really sets off the bright colors.

    50" seems huge to me, since I watch a modest 25" model, but it seems like a standard size these days. I might go up to 32" eventually, if they even offer that size down the road.

    I think it's mostly about name recognition. Bernie is a mensch (Biden, not so much), but I'd rather have someone younger. Beto O'Roarke seems remarkably unseasoned to me.

    The writing seems to be Hebrew; it's none of the other Semitic languages, as far as I can tell, but it has the hash-mark vowels they all have. Good luck with your detective work!

    My SO was the fifth of nine, also in a very small house. It can be done. And I imagine organization is key.
