You can’t break me…

A song worth listening to…

Ingrid Michaelson – Spare Change

Spare Change

Aching, longing
Save all your hands for me
‘Cause I won’t share them
With anything, anyone, no

I grew from you
Branches from a dying tree
But I could save you
If only you looked for me

You can’t break me
I’m a piggy bank on the floor
Watch all my spare change
Roll out the door
Watch all my spare change
Roll across the floor
Watching me through
Your glass door…

Save your smile for
Everybody else you see
‘Cause I don’t want the
One that you make for me

You can’t break me
I’m a piggy bank on the floor
Watch all my spare change
Roll out the door
Watch all my spare change
Roll across the floor
Watching me through
Your glass door…
Your door…

The more that I’ve tried
The more that you’ve pried
Yourself away…

What has Obama done in office?

Thursday, June 28th, 2012

I have posted a couple times addressing this question. What has Obama done so far? You can read those here and here. But… I stumbled upon a fantastic site that answers that question simply—over and over and over again– What the F*** has Obama done so far dot com. Obama has done so much for our country. He cannot fix all the years of damage the last administration did but he has done a lot towards repairing so many national wounds. From healthcare reform to rights of all people to corporate responsibility—Obama has been working hard for all of us…these are just a few examples the website cites…

For Women…

For Children…

For minorities…

 

For gay rights…

 

For students…

For Human Rights (and for restoration of political legitimacy)…

For science and research…

For the disabled…

 

For the veterans and their families…

For the elderly…

For the unemployed…

For the fiscally conservative (and the next generation)…

For the geeks, even…

 

And as I said above, these are just a few of the examples of What Obama has done so far… in one term in office. I would say he has done an outstanding job so far.

Thank you President Barack Obama.

Did you know?

Did you know that redheads have more sex?1

Redheads are more sensitive to pain.2

And redheads need more anesthesia.3

 

There are a lot of myths about redheads. I guess that will happen with any specific grouping of people, right? We like to think in terms of groups, classification, stereotypes. I read that bees sting redheads more than other hair colors. I am not certain I believe this. Anyone know of a scientific study that supports this claim?

Red hair is a genetic mutation. A genetic mutation I am thankful for. And no, this picture is not of me but worth sharing all the same. Long live the redheads.
