Long hours

Ooh, I like the sound of this: companies and municipal governments have been exploring the idea of the 4 day, 40-hour workweek. Local governments in particular have had their eyes on Utah over the last year; the state redefined the workday for more than 17,000 of its employees last August. For those workplaces, there’s no […]


AAAAAAAAAAA! Are you kidding me? “Congress would make it mandatory, absolutely require, that every five years, people in Medicare have a required counseling session that will tell them how to end their life sooner,” McCaughey said to Thompson.

The This American Life crew…has […]

Too cute for sanity




An “Aha Moment” on the subject of tangible forgiveness. Video’s about 2 1/2 minutes, but it’s worth it. Key description: When I was pregnant with my twins, I had the realization of being forgiven for the abortion I had in the past and didn’t have to explain it anymore. Whatever your feelings are about organized […]
