I took 1 st mortgage loans when I was very young and that supported my relatives very much. Nevertheless, I need the sba loan as well.

I think that to receive the business loans from banks you must present a firm motivation. However, once I've got a auto loan, just because I wanted to buy a building.

Another Way | Article: Had It Not Been for Reading
| Read only Another Way posts | Respond to this post |

Your moving column "If not for reading," in the current North Fork Journal prompts me to [respond]. I focus on a set of adventure stories by Joseph Altsheler, [1862-1919]. A branch library a few blocks from where I grew up in Washington D.C. had dozens of books by Altsheler. When I was ten or so, I devoured all that the library had. They came in several series: on the French and Indian War, the Revolution in the backwoods of Kentrucky, the Alamo, the Civl War and World War I. I assume that many of Altsheler's books are still on library shelves. ... When I began reading them my father was delighted because he had read them when he was young, too. Thanks for your invitation to recall some of the most favorite books of my childhood.--Charles

I don´k know about the film, but Nana, I hope you felt nice getting the attention you needed.
The people that could have been enjoying the film didn´t need you breaking the tension and being an smartass.

I had many thoughts as I read your piece on bridal showers. When a friend’s daughter was getting married, they had the shower in the MCC workroom. The guests spent their visiting time working on MCC projects, because “the best visiting time is when you are working together”. I have never forgotten that, wondering what some other creative ideas might be – rather than sitting and passing around the Bed, Bath and Beyond registry gifts. Just recently, someone told me that one of the “talks” when they were doing Marriage Encounter was to tell a story from childhood that helps understand who you have become today. So as I was reading your piece, I began to imagine what it would be like to re-word that example for a shower: tell a story from your marriage that gives an idea as to what your marriage is today.

Thanks for your comments Lee and I am so sorry for your extended family's loss. We realize my husband was extremely fortunate it was not worse. He was working 72-73 hour weeks at the demand of his company, and then switched to night shift. Yes he was exhuasted. Thanks again for sharing your story. We are sorry.

Another Way | Article - driving with fatigue: Wake-Up Call
| Read only Another Way posts | Respond to this post |

Driving when you are exhausted is man's way to try to overcome poor planning - however going to sleep at the wheel can cost you a major car expense from an accident, cost you a lot of time at the doctors office, in the hgospital and rehab if you can restore the damage, or it can cost you your life. This week our nephew's wife's 24 yr old brother Tim who was also a new husband, died in a car accident going off the road asleep at the wheel. It is terrible and nothing more can be said. No consolation for the family, no words of comfort.

I am discouraged at his loss, but glad that he did not hit someone and perhaps kill them as well. I know as a strong believer he is with God, but it was so unnecessary.

So don't try to drive when exhausted - nap and then nap again if you need it. God will protect you if you use the wisdom that He gifted each of us.

Media Matters | The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey
| Read only Media Matters posts | Respond to this post |

I'm honestly not sure where I fall between those categories. I read the book as a teenager some fifteen years ago, and thus I barely remembered anything. Even so, I didn't find the plot difficult to follow, though of course it wasn't as taut as it could have been--but then neither is Tolkien's writing (I can say that because I do remember the LOTR books). I agree that the decision to stretch it to three books was a mistake, but it is what it is. Thanks for your comment!

The main problem is the length. While the LOTR trilogy was slimmed to make a coherent package, the Hobbit was lengthened. Even in the book, things sort of happen that don't really fit into the overall narrative, then Jackson went and added even more things. For those unfamiliar with the book, the plot is an incoherent mess. As a film, it's a disaster. As a love letter to Tolkien's whole body of work, it works.

Media Matters | Rape in the Military: The Invisible War
| Read only Media Matters posts | Respond to this post |

Let me reiterate that the majority of those in the military who are raped are men. Also, the film is available on DVD or at Netflix. I don't expect it to come to theaters.

Media Matters | Military Rape: The Invisible War
| Read only Media Matters posts | Respond to this post |

Rape has always been part of military culture. Armies have always raped and plundered. But now that women are participating in war, this ugly reality is hitting the military in the face, and it's bound to change the culture and, perhaps, the entire ethic of warfare. So thanks to this, and thanks to the female martyrs to the cause who are stepping forward, I see the potential for an evolutionary change for the better in this tired old world of physical domination and conquest.
Meanwhile, I will look for this movie to appear in my local area.

It's my job to build and test the phone robots, doing them well. Part of that role is to point out when designers (or, more often, non-designers in companies' marketing departments or legal departments) have made up something that is unworkable for real-world users.

Last year, I wrote a deliberately awful phone robot that puts dozens of the worst gaffes all into one place, as satire. Here it is; enjoy!
