Books Books Books!

Yes, the girl and I man­aged a library run (to the GOOD library) on Fri­day. It took more time and ener­gy than expect­ed, of course, but we got a bunch of very good books.  I read My Big Fat Super­nat­ur­al Hon­ey­moon last night, with much gig­gling. The sto­ries were a bit uneven (nor­mal for an anthology), […]

SBQ: Sick of a WIP?

The Stitch­ing Blog­ger’s Ques­tion of the Week is: Do you ever get to a point work­ing on a project that you’ve had for so long, you start to won­der what pos­sessed you to start it in the first place? Of course! It has always hap­pened with pat­terns I chose to do for some­one else, though, rather than those […]

Review: Women, Work and Autoimmune Disease

I read Women, Work and Autoim­mune Dis­ease by Ros­alind Joffe and Joan Fried­lan­der a few months back, but for some rea­son, my review on Ama­zon took a while to show up, and I did­n’t think to keep a copy for myself. It seems to final­ly be there now, so I’ll put it here, too (slight­ly […]

Vicious Teacher Leads Bullying of Disabled Child

Teacher lets kinder­garten stu­dents vote 5‑year-old “out of the class” After each class­mate was allowed to say what they did­n’t like about Bar­ton’s 5‑year-old son, Alex, his Morn­ing­side Ele­men­tary teacher Wendy Por­tillo said they were going to take a vote, Bar­ton said. By a 14 to 2 mar­gin, the stu­dents vot­ed Alex—who is in the process of […]

Oxygen for CFS?

A research abstract from Dr. Paul Cheney offers an inter­est­ing con­clu­sion. Oxy­gen Tox­i­c­i­ty as a Locus of Con­trol for Chron­ic Fatigue Syn­drome “We con­clude that CFS is an oxy­gen tox­ic state and that oxy­gen tox­i­c­i­ty sta­tus appears to deter­mine out­come in ther­a­peu­tic tri­als and is there­fore, a locus of con­trol in chron­ic fatigue syn­drome.” The […]

Civil Rights Win in Florida

Months ago, I post­ed about Ponce de Leon High School in Flori­da ban­ning the wear or dis­play of any kind of gay pride sym­bols or words, claim­ing that they indi­cat­ed involve­ment in an “ille­gal orga­ni­za­tion.” I lat­er found out that the prob­lem start­ed last fall when a les­bian stu­dent com­plained that she was being harassed. […]

Review: From Dead to Worse by Charlaine Harris

After read­ing From Dead to Worse, I feel as if Char­laine Har­ris is fin­ished with the South­ern Vam­pire Mys­ter­ies. If so, she’s doing so well, as vol­ume sev­en is the most sat­is­fy­ing book of the series. This is not a “hap­pi­ly ever after” book, but it isn’t an “oh my God what’s going to happen […]

Fibromyalgia or Depression?

There are many peo­ple, espe­cial­ly doc­tors, who claim that fibromyal­gia is just a symp­tom of depres­sion. I’ve had both, and I know the dif­fer­ence quite well. They are very, very dif­fer­ent. Being in pain all the time can cer­tain­ly lead to depres­sion. That’s just log­i­cal. There are, how­ev­er, peo­ple who have fibromyal­gia who are not […]
