    Funny car-related humour (via Brady Dyer on Facebook). I remember something similar happen when BMW launched the 3-series Touring here. One of our colleagues took off when we swapped test cars … except he left the keys of the one he was driving in his pocket. We were stranded. He had to drive...

  • How to Participate in Internet Discussions

    Posted April 26 by TreeSweater

    I admit it; I am a comment-oholic. I can’t read a post or an article and NOT look at the comment section. I can’t do it. I get flaming angry every time, but like the proverbial dog with its own vomit, I can't stay away. (And most comment sections aren’t much better than dog vomit a...

  • exciting new skincare line

    Posted April 24 by Bunny FKA Geology Byotch

    I am not a beauty product ho. However, I do like to try new things, but always research them first if they are skincare. I do not wear much makeup, but do wear a bit of it when going to work, and if out, I always put on lipstick.  I am not obsessed with looking younger, but I would like to be ...

  • Book Report: Collected Stories of Winnie-the-Pooh audiobook

    Posted April 21 by TreeSweater

    Okay, I've listened to only the first story, so maybe it's a bit early for a review. :D This isn't really a review of the book anyway. The Pooh stories are the first "chapter book" I read on my own as a kid, and I've loved them ever since. I've read them many times, and I've listened to the audiobo...

  • Thinking thoughtful thoughts

    Posted April 18 by TreeSweater

    I've seen articles indicating that the current generation is 37% (or whatever) less empathetic than previous generations have been. I'm sure our everyone-gets-a-gold-star-and-a-participation-trophy mentality contributes to it. But in today's day and age, when we are all online all the time, and we...
