Is this the guy from the farmer's market??? So excited for you! In an easy and casual way, of course. :) - Lisa L. Seifert
ha, no...this is someone I've been crushing on shortly after I moved to DC. I get so goofy and silly and like a 14 y/o when it comes to even attempt dating. He's kind of goofy too, so we'll see how it goes. - Derrick

I have a friend who is just now joining the Doctor Who train. The other day she said she was in the middle if another heavy marathon and Donna was her new queen.... And then I got something in both of my eyes again.

it's black forest bacon! apparently people have been all hesitant about trying it (it looks kinda funky) so when i asked what it was and was all 'SURE, I'LL TRY IT" he said he'd give it me. yay whole foods meat dude. - holly #ravingfangirl

Couldn't figure out why the new password I had just enabled was being denied when I tried to login. Turns out that the predictive autocorrect settings become radically more aggressive when I switch from the docking keyboard to the touchscreen keyboard on my tablet. Looks fine, then hit enter and BOOM! NEW PASSWORD ENTRY!

Autocorrect in a password field?? - Stephan Planken from iPhone
Apparently, Stephan. Never haad that happen before. Either that or some malware is messing with my mind. - Jkram|ɯɐɹʞſ
I had autocorrect on CAPTCHA the other day. Ugh! - Rebecca Hedreen
I also cannot figure out why I keep getting autocorrected for things like "It's a s...." (some word that starts with 's') changed to "It' same". Last time I checked -it'- was not a word. I get this with all sorts of contractions. - Rebecca Hedreen

Gardens: If you know what you’re looking for there’s free food everywhere – even for the urban forager - The Scotsman -
"WHAT do mahonias, fuchsias and violets have in common? They all have edible parts. So while you may have chosen garden plants because of their form, scent or colour, with a little knowhow some of them could start contributing towards your dinner plate. The tasty secrets of garden and wild plants are revealed in a new book by gardener and author Alys Fowler. In The Thrifty Forager, Fowler points out that foraging can be practised in the city as well as the countryside – as long as you’re prepared to invest time in getting to know your local plants. “Urban areas are just as good as rural, sometimes better as a lot of ornamental plants like Japanese flowering quince are planted in urban areas and you’d be hard pressed to find one growing wild,” she says. “Parks, around the back of allotments (not the allotments themselves as that’d be stealing) and those weird bits of no-man’s land are all great places to forage. Even street trees can offer up a bounty. I know a street in London lined... more... - Spidra Webster from Bookmarklet

I'm sorry, but this shit is dumb. You can say whatever the f- you want on the Internet. But free speech doesn't protect you from consequences. If Big Oil/Big Ag/Big Pharma no longer wants to fund your study because you said some horrible shit, that's market forces in action, not suppression of free speech
Free speech doesn't mean that people have to listen to you. This is a basic consent issue. - Victor Ganata
It really just smacks of people who have always had the privilege of captive audiences upset that their privilege is eroding and now people are telling them to STFU to their face. - Victor Ganata

A Brutal Allergy Season Is Ahead. Blame the Polar Vortex. | Mother Jones
"One week ago, I purchased the first asthma inhaler I've owned since the 8th grade. I'd shown up at my doctor's office short of breath, and a lung function test promptly revealed that I was inhaling about one-fifth as much air as a healthy 24-year-old should be. "We're expecting a lot of cases like you," my doctor told me as he wrote my prescription. "It's going to be a hell of a pollen season." And for that, you can blame the polar vortex—the extreme cold system that repeatedly hovered over much of the United States this year—along with the rest of this winter's brutal weather. Those cold snaps helped spawn a spring allergy season so intense that it already has its own headline-ready nickname: the "pollen vortex."" - Steven Perez from Bookmarklet

It Took 50 Years, But The University Of Alabama Has Finally Embraced Integration | ThinkProgress
"It’s official: the University of Alabama is on the record supporting racial integration – in the year 2014. Last week Alabama’s Student Senate passed a resolution supporting the complete integration of Greek life at the university. The renewed conversation about race at the historically troubled campus began after a black female student with a 4.3 GPA was denied by all 16 of the school’s sororities. An earlier resolution supporting racial integration had failed by a wide margin." - Steven Perez from Bookmarklet

Once intended to jump-start struggling domestic drillers, these incentives have become a tidy bonus for some of the world's most profitable companies." - Steven Perez from Bookmarklet

Congressman Denies Manmade Climate Change, Calls It 'An Agenda-Driven Science' | ThinkProgress
"GAINESVILLE, Florida — Rep. Ted Yoho (R-FL) readily admits he’s “not smart enough” to determine the roots of climate change. He is, however, able to rule out one possible cause: humans. The freshman congressman’s remarks came in an interview with ThinkProgress Monday following a town hall meeting. Asked about the spate of extreme weather, including weeks of punishing drought, that has gripped parts of Florida in recent years, Yoho dismissed the idea that it could be a symptom of manmade climate change. “I think it’s a natural occurrence,” the Tea Party-aligned lawmaker said." - Steven Perez from Bookmarklet
