I asked BoyGeeding if he was making any friends in his kindergarten class. He said not so much in class but he plays with his girlfriend from another class during recess. I asked what his girlfriend’s name is and he replied in the most incredulous why-would-you-even-ask-that way, “I DON”T KNOW!“
Hurricanes Harvey and Irma certainly deserve a lot of coverage, but there’s a lot of pertinent news not getting attention.
I heard a great sandwich making tip the other day, though I think it applies more to burgers. Fatty spreads, such as butter or mayonnaise on bread, work as a barrier to absorb moisture, which prevents the bread or bun from getting soggy.
While looking up Cal Ripken stats I learned there are two types of stripper poles, static and spin. It’s easier to gain momentum on a spin pole but it’s harder for the dancer to control the body. Static poles provide the dancer the opportunity to perform more powerful moves and not worry about momentum making them lose control.
I’ve never seen the movie It and don’t know if the new one is a remake or some sort of extension. I’m too lazy to look it up but not to blog about it and to fill up space for today’s post.
Hicks, a businessman with a UT government degree, doesn’t have a background in social work, but he said he’s always been focused on supporting institutions and causes that directly help people. He settled on the school after studying where he felt he could make the most difference. “I think we have a great society, but in every social system, parts of it break from time to time and the social workers are there to pick up the pieces, whether in the hospitals or recovery centers, assisted living facilities and the prisons,” Hicks said in an interview.
I’m sure there’s nothing to it, but I thought it was interesting he used the term “great society” which was the name of LBJ’s signature domestic program and that LBJ’s presidential library is at UT.
“Your penis, per se, has no value,” says Robert Koenigsberg, a New York-based workers’ compensation attorney. “In New York, unfortunately, genitals and organs are generally worthless.”
The investigation turned up data for testicles as well—the national average is $27,678 for losing one on the job—but has no data for the penis itself. Koenigsberg explained that usually, workers’ comp is only calculated insofar as the injury affects your ability to work.
When George H.W. Bush first took office he did two things of note to seek the advice of former presidents.
He asked them what kind of daily briefings they’d like to receive to stay on top of affairs.
He asked if they’d like secure telephones installed in their office so he could speak to them directly day or night. All declined Bush’s special phone line saying they preferred their independence, except for Ford who even came to regard the handset as something of a bother.
