Dah-link, it’s been ages!

I want a computer in my brain.  Sign me up – I’ll be an early adopter for that one.  I’ve been housesitting since last Thursday, and I haven’t had access to my desktop computer, so my online activity has taken a dive.  I do have my iPod Touch, and the house in which I’m staying has wireless, but …

Underwater Adventures

Ashley and I went to Underwater Adventures at the Mall of America last Friday.   She had never been to UA, and neither of us had done the behind the scenes tour. We arrived at UA at about 5:40pm.  We had 20 minutes before the behind the scenes tour, and so we wandered around in the …

Tree Lobsters!

Okay, I may be the last one ever to discover Tree Lobsters!  You can’t prove that they don’t exist, but I just found it today through the magic of the blogosphere and its interconnectivishness.  It’s irreverent and skeptical, and very, very geeky.  This comic was the clincher; the one that made me want to share …

Affordable Health Care for America

All day yesterday I kept tags on the liveblogging of the House Health Care Vote.  And then at 9 or 10pm-ish (I’m getting the EST-CST zones mixed up),  I watched the House vote on CNN.com Live.  It was incredibly terrifying to watch the numbers come in, but finally we achieved the 216 votes needed to pass.  …

The Bible Cure for Candida and Yeast Infections Dr. Colbert is an Oral Roberts U alumnus and board-certified MD who peddles faith-based AND alternative medicine kookiness – it’s a two-fer! First, he’s addressing the controversial issue of candidiasis.  Science-based medical doctors know from the evidence that there are genital and oral (thrush) yeast infections, and that there is …

I can haz health care?

I am very lucky: I have health insurance through my job.  The Hubby has insurance through his job.  We don’t have children about whose health coverage we need to worry, and my immediate family is all covered.  We haven’t had any major accidents or sicknesses that are forcing us to make hard money vs. health decisions.  …

It’s National Women’s History Month.

Ladies – It’s time to do something good for yourself and your sisters!  I mean, aside from the general love, respect and acknowledgement that we always remember to give each other (right, right?).  March 2010 is the 30th anniversary of the National Women’s History Project. On March 6th, a One Million Women March was held in London. …

Symphony of Science

I really like this project.  I first heard about Symphony of Science at Pharyngula a couple of months ago.  Yesterday I had “Poetry of Reality” stuck in my head, but I think that “Our Place in the Cosmos” may be my favorite so far.
