Put on Your F*cking Mask!

Not sure why sea shanties are having a moment, but I’ve always liked them and I’m not above using them for my own nefarious purposes. I invite you to sing along, but……

The Case for Cozy

My cozy place

Some of my friends have been talking about strategies for coping with the stress of the coming fall and winter. I would like to propose one in particular: Coziness. Make finding comfort, even if it’s just a few minutes, a deliberate practice. Take time to think about your ultimate cozy place. It’s better than thinking about the news.

Coziness has something……

Eva’s Almost Enough Stuffing

I’m putting this here for my children because it should definitely not die with me (not that I have any imminent plans).

Immigration lottery to be replaced by gladiatorial games

Ending a twenty-seven year history, the popular Immigration Lottery will be shut down. Originally intended to promote cultural diversity by making available 50,000 permanent resident visas annually to natives of countries deemed to have low rates of immigration to the United States, the program has been determined to be a huge……
