Woke up around 6:00 a.m. without wanting to. Maybe it's internal or maybe it's birds who are louder than normal. Watched TV. Ebola, Ebola, Ebola. Got up and made breakfast. The frozen waffles seemed to have thawed out and been refrozen. The expensive fresh juice tasted not so good. The expensive organic bacon is weird, but I knew it would be. Sigh. Looked...

The best way to learn about these things is from specific cases. I'd recommend my article on Gary Webb, below:

shopping
Well, I was bitchy but it was the store's fault. There's something wrong with it. I tried. I wasn't in a hurry and I used the scooter. They didn't know their stuff. I got all my items, pretty much. I feel hungry and empty and I'm not even drinking tea. I feel weak; not eating enough meat and fat; and too much heat and noise. I did a shitload of sh...

Possible Water on Mars

mars anomaly, mars water
Our Turnbuckle spotted this NASA picture which he feels may depict an underground water leak. It does look like it could be a water leak to me. It would be a good idea to keep your own copy of this picture because sometimes anomalous pictures disappear off the NASA website. http://mars.jpl.nasa...561E01_DXXX.jpg

I enjoyed a story about this written by Brent Swancer of Mysterious Universe . You may have heard of the Salton Sea, a lake created by accident in the California desert. Developments grew up around it until it became too salty to support life. Now, a few people eke out an existence in the remnants of its vacation towns. Apparently there may also be treasu...

Comfort

Oh, the inexpressible comfort of feeling safe with a person: having neither to weigh thoughts nor measure words, but to pour them out. Just as they are -- chaff and grain together, knowing that a faithful hand will take and sift them, keep what is worth keeping, and then with the breath of kindness, blow the rest away.
