I loved this moment from Obama’s first inauguration. Sasha was six or seven, and just as cute as can be, and gives her father a simple thumbs up with an adorable grin.

For you armchair plumbers out there, I’m seeking your counsel. Our half bath is downstairs immediately across from our laundry room. Every now and then, and I think it happens sometime after we run the washing machine, we smell something as if it’s coming from the sewer. I’ve used my sniffer to try to isolate the smell, but I can’t tell where it is coming from. I don’t think it’s coming from the toilet I installed not too long ago because I”m thinking the water in the bowl and tank prevent any gasses from coming up. I doubt it’s the sink in the half bath mainly for the same reason and how a p-trap is designed. The washing machine hasn’t shown any sign of leakage and it’s been cleaned and deodorized, and I don’t think the area in the wall where the washing machine waste water is dispensed is the culprit. I’m stumped, any thoughts?

KVIL is no more. I remember when they used to broadcast Cowboys games, and thought it was weird for a music station to do such a thing.

I don’t care how “gross” they are, I love them, and I’ve never smoked weed.
The Wall Street Journal – How Badly Were We Craving Jack in the Box Tacos? Badly – After a popular article proclaimed them ‘vile and amazing,’ Journal staffers in New York cooked up a plan to import them using West Coast colleagues, ice packs, a real-life scientist, UPS and a toaster
