    I saw a hummingbird outside my window a month or so ago. A friend was kept busy thawing out her feeders during our cold spell to keep hers fed. Apparently, some don't migrate.

    She's a women of some stature; he's not fit to carry her luggage. He's outclassed everywhere he goes.

    People make their own happiness, barring crippling depression. She probably did miss her job, but her unhappiness was her own.
    Hypercritical people always strike me as miserable.

    There are certainly things I would/could change about my life, but I suspect that's true of most people. Solitude isn't one of them--though I've thought seriously of moving closer to my loved...

    I don't "put myself out there," and I likely wouldn't respond positively to an invite to the old folks, er Senior Center, either. My partner is a whirling social dervish. People are different, and...

    If I have two cups of spinach and an avocado a day, I get maybe half the recommended dose of 4700 mg. If I add in some potassium chloride from a salt substitute, I get slightly more. I don't know how...

    It's not a moral defect (we're still Puritans at heart it seems), it's the siren call of insulin--it rises when you're under stress, as well as when you've eaten carbohydrates. It's really all genes...

    That would have scared me, too. Certainly, you should be warned of common postoperative symptoms of discomfort, etc.

    They warned me about the inflation factor when I had my tubal ligation, so the pain--which I remember being mostly in my shoulders, for some reason--wasn't worrisome. I don't think I took any...

    There's conjecture out there that he leaked his own taxes. He's a known leaker. (And leakee, if Russian gossip can be believed.)

    I think it's more than clear that Trump is profiting bigly from being President (real estate and licensing deals), and has profited from his deals with Russians.

    Health care was affordable in my lifetime--which admittedly is a long one--before insurance got involved. And you had choices back then. Ancient history.

    Godwin's law is expanding to include references to Aryans, apparently. It signifies that we are treading waters that have been trod before. We ignore that at our peril.
