    Cell Phone Problem - Any techs out there.

    Do you live in the U.S.? There's a place I've used named uBreakiFix; I think they have stores in all major American cities. They'll examine your phone (or tablet, or computer, whatever) for free. If just opening it up to diagnose the problem fixes it (it sometimes does) the repair is free. If...

    Book Cover - two concepts, cannot decide which one!

    I think it depends on what you're trying to say with the cover. The first one, to me, is a little off-putting, and it took me a couple of minutes to figure out why. I'm on my phone, so the screen is small. On the small screen, at first glance, I saw a stormy sky, not a sunset sky. I also missed...

    Could use some good thoughts.

    My dad died of primary liver cancer, so I have a clue. I don't know what drugs your husband is on, but if they include major pain killers that can affect the ability to think. Also, the liver does a lot (Liver: Anatomy and Functions), specifically including clearing poisons from the...

    Mollipop for Pawsident

    Jasmine endorses Mollipop! Bright Eyes, on the other paw, is considering running on the Repawblican ticket where he'd try to get a plank added to the platform in favor of more sun puddles.

    US warning on mystery seeds appearing in mailboxes

    The package may be labeled "Jewelry," and authorities say you shouldn't even open it — just report it directly to your state department of agriculture. Most local television stations have a website where you can find recent news stories, and I suspect most recent newscasts have covered this. So...

    Publisher's Clearing House scam

    I heard this on the local news in Colorado, but I'm not at all sure that it made the national news. There's a new (or perhaps a very old?) scam. The scammers call you up and tell you that you've won the Publisher's Clearing House sweepstakes. Then they tell you that you'll have to pay tax on...

    Corona Virus Now Spreading

    When I was in college, I took exactly one quarter of Greek, which I was terrible at. There were two reasons I had so much trouble with it: I'm no good at memorizing. I spent weeks trying to figure out how 1st, 2nd, and 3rd aorist were related -- i.e. how did 2nd aorist derive from 1st aorist...
