  ...of the moment  
Thinking about the "Freedom Caucus" that is stopping the Republicans from having an orderly transition of Speaker of the House. In my naive understanding, it seems a bit like a parliamentary system where there are multiple parties and the need for coalition governments: Republicans have 247 seats (vs Democrats' 188) but since 42 of them are "Freedom Caucus" they have veto power over some things that need a majority of Congress (218) to run. (It would be even more ironic if Republicans minus FC was less than Democrats, but since the 2015 election that's not the case.)

Lets hope the "Freedom Caucus" doesn't get much more power. They're willing to trash the economy with their debt ceiling terrorism.
from my FB post: The PVC scaffolding for the JP Honk hoop banner underwent a major upgrade, thanks to Tuba Honker Kirk and his buddy "'EB". Instead of just being 2 loooong poles and 2 short ones making a rectangle to hang the hoops on (see last years picture below) the new design comes apart, with two fold out bits (kind of like the stand for a tv tray) and two shorter connecting pipes. It should be a lot easier to travel with, a bit sturdier, it can be carried by two people or maybe even one, and should do a better job of standing on its own when the band isn't on the march.

Amused by this compilation of Mulder + Scully pics (fbi engagement photos, fbi prom, fbi pregnancy announcement, or fbi YA novel, etc)
Man, I know Slate isn't THE most prestigious journalism, but have we really gotten to where we can do the katakana shruggie instead of saying "shrug"?

Man- the Wayback Machine's first entry for my first domain goes back to 1996. Round up to 20 years... 20 years before that is, like,the disco era.

Lovely Short Story about letters from beyond the grave. Resonates a bit for me with the letters I write plotting my super-niece's development, to be handed over when she's 16 or so.

I really like this TV by Samsung
I fell asleep to the Seahawks/Lions game last night, and for some reason hearing about a completely wrong call REALLY hits my "THIS INJUSTICE SHOULD NOT BE" buttons...
A tumor stole every memory I had. This is what happened when it all came back. The relationship between our mind and our physical brain and our sense of self and our relationship with the universe is amazing and at times unnerving.
