Psych Test

I'd love to see psychiatric evaluations of presidential candidates. 

That's assuming you could find candidates willing to be evaluated by unbiased psychiatrists. 

And assuming you could find unbiased psychiatrists.

Yeah, I guess I won't hold my breath.

Call me. No, wait.

I find Verizon's website to be an absolute morass of junk, ads,chirpy popups, and stuff.  So when I wanted to change a data plan, I did a search for VERIZON and DATA PLAN, which gave me this"

Customer Service
As it happened, that WASNT a person (Gethuman exists to give you the phone numbers that you get switched to after having gone through a company's phone tree hell) -- but it worked.  
So I figures what the heck, someone else might want to know.

Yeah, I'm nervous.

I don't actually think there are a lot of people who read this blog (not that I don't appreciate you!), but I want to say:  I haven't given up on it.  Its just that I've been putting a number of political posts on Facebook lately (something about this election scares the willies out of me).  Every time I see something that sounds worthwhile (as distinct from traditional my opponent is a whale butt!  political discourse), I want to publicize it there.  And so I do.

But I will be back.  I know, strike up the band!

Runs in the Family

Going through some cookbooks (we don't have a lot, but significantly more than I'd have guessed), I came across a Betty Crocker Baking for Today.  I said to my wife "I really have no use for this, but, hey, my mother gave it to me, so I'll keep it." 

Found a Better Homes and Gardens Junior Cook Book, which my mother had given to my daughter. "Well", she said, "I really have no use for it, but Grandma gave it to me, so I want to keep it."
