    I could have written this. When I was diagnosed with Type 2 diabetes last year, I decided to address it with diet and exercise (not medication). Going low-carbohydrate/high-fat has helped me lose...

    Huh?

    The House of Representatives will go blue in January; the Republicans picked up only two seats in the Senate. The Republicans lost seven governorships. As Williamsmith posted, someone with...

    Those signs/policies are an attempt to offer a benefit for what is considered (by at least some) a collective good (polluting less per mile; having offspring). One can decide that they agree with the...

    There's nothing wrong with others paying (or bartering with) you for a skill you have. You do have to be comfortable with that arrangement. Often I'll do something for free because we're not talking...

    Score! Not personally a fan of the "Bose sound" but that is a steal for a system of that caliber, even if it did require a little time for cleanup.
