Book Review: Places to Be, People to Kill edited by Brittiany A. Koren & Martin H. Greenberg

Places To Be, Peo­ple To Kill by Brit­tiany A. Koren My rat­ing: 3 of 5 stars I enjoyed this anthol­o­gy more than one might expect from a col­lec­tion of sto­ries about killers, but then I’ve read a cou­ple of vol­umes edit­ed by Brit­tiany A. Koren and Mar­tin H. Green­berg now, and I trust the pair. (Green­berg has […]

Book Review: Hounded by Kevin Hearne

Hound­ed by Kevin Hearne My rat­ing: 4 of 5 stars I just can’t say enough good things about this book. It’s well-plot­t­ed. There’s an excel­lent cast of char­ac­ters, and they devel­op in inter­est­ing ways. The world-build­ing is won­der­ful­ly rich.  I have the same incred­i­ble, bub­bly feel­ing that I did when read­ing the very first Dres­den Files novel […]

Watching Telly

I have spent most of today screw­ing off shame­less­ly. It felt good to do that for a change, after study­ing every day for weeks. I watched Sher­lock, Har­ry’s Law and Wal­lan­der. I fin­ished read­ing Hound­ed by Kevin Hearne, then start­ed Hexed. I did go to the library and pick up more books for study­ing, but […]

Addition: Task Card Template

I’ve updat­ed the arti­cle on our card sys­tem and added a Word doc­u­ment that has blank task cards, to help peo­ple make their own cards. That has been request­ed by sev­er­al dif­fer­ent peo­ple over time, and I final­ly found the orig­i­nal Word doc­u­ment, which made it eas­i­er to do so. I’m con­sid­er­ing fur­ther updates to that […]

Review: Fifty Shades of Grey

Fifty Shades of Grey by E.L. James My rat­ing: 2 of 5 stars I did­n’t intend to read this book, as I’d large­ly heard snark about it. A dear friend rec­om­mend­ed it, though, so I final­ly gave it a read. The writ­ing def­i­nite­ly needs pol­ish and a good editor—I could­n’t pos­si­bly give it more than 3 stars […]

Book Review: JavaScript in Easy Steps

JavaScript in Easy Steps by Mike McGrath My rat­ing: 1 of 5 stars This book isn’t worth the paper on which it’s print­ed unless you’re already a devel­op­er. If you aren’t, don’t both­er. McGrath intro­duces con­cepts with lit­tle to no expla­na­tion, tells you to type some­thing in, says it should do X, then moves on to […]

Fibrant Living: Being an active part of your own health care team, part I

I start­ed a new series at Fibrant Liv­ing today about being an active part of your own health care team. It’s impor­tant for any­one but vital for those of us with com­plex or chron­ic con­di­tions. I got to go to the library again today, thanks to Steven! We also had a great lunch at John­ny’s […]

Being an Active Part of Your Own Health Care Team, Part I

Peo­ple who have chron­ic or com­plex health issues need to take an active role in their own health care. That does­n’t come nat­u­ral­ly to every­one, and in fact, it runs counter to the tra­di­tion­al way of inter­act­ing with “Doc­tor God” that I, for one, learned from my own par­ents. In this series, we’ll talk about […]

Fibrant Living: Fight Brain Fog!

Over at Fibrant Liv­ing, I’m talk­ing about ways to fight brain fog. That’s a prob­lem for peo­ple with chron­ic pain, depres­sion, and oth­er dis­or­ders, and I’d love to hear about how some of you deal with it. I’m in a good mood. It’s a love­ly day, I’m learn­ing things, and I’ve got things to look forward […]
