Thursday Schmursday…gimme some Friday


Ahh, Thursday.  We’ve made it through hump day and it’s downhill now to the end of the day Friday.  The news has been predictable and slow: Healthcare yada yada yada.


Hillary Clinton’s arrival in Pakistan Met by Fatal Attacks


Was that poor girl in California who was gang-raped in front of 20 people a victim of “Genovese Syndrome?” That’s what some experts are saying.  Even so, how have we failed our children when something like this happens and they consider it entertainment?  This is the most devastating news story in quite some time.  My heart goes out to that poor child and her family.


The Bay Bridge in San Francisco is still closed in both directions due to structural damage causing more traffic jams than usual.  Bay Bridge closure threatens to snarl traffic for at least another day.


Here’s a story about some very resourceful cats:  Cats take over vacant house in Blackstone



Sorry Yankee Fans, my hubby made me post this: Game 1 of the World Series:  Phillies 6       Yankees 1


Is a ticket really that valuable?:  Woman attempts to trade sex for World Series Tickets.


Are we confusing despair with depression?: Kierkegaard on the Couch


If you’re interested in tracking your lifestyle habits to increase awareness of what may be keeping you from being as healthy as possible, this website offers a solution.  At www.thecarrot.com, you can track everything from diet to exercise to daily behaviors and then prepare reports to compare all of your personal data.

U.S. may end up discarding unused vaccine.


Shortage of Vaccine Poses Political Risk for the President


Fertility breakthrough:are we at the precipice of major change in the way we view human reproduction?: Stem cell studies lead to creation of sperm and egg in the lab.


That’s all I’ve got!  What’s caught your eye this morning?
