    Somedays, some moments
    It's just too hard to be human
    To be cheerful or friendly or even civil
    When all you want to do
    Is hide, sleep and
    Bury yourself in blankets and fleece
    Sometimes too bone-weary life is
    And only sleep
    No chocolate or tea or
    Okay, maybe a wagging welcome-home burst
    Of canine enthusiasm
    Or a feline escort, tail proudly held high
    To the front door
    Or the right hug
    Can bring me back
    From the edge of the void
    I've Been Frosted

    Senator Sanders meme

    I heard on the news that Sen. Sanders had sweatshirts made with his famous inauguration day picture, they sold out, and he gave away the proceeds to area food banks and other good causes. I thought that was pretty awesome. I saw one on a nursing Website- it was that famous picture with him seated on an emergency department cart. The caption said: You've heard of the elf on the shelf ... now here's Bernie on a gurney! I had to laugh when I saw that one.

    Oh, that's all great! The picture, to begin with, then Bernie having the sweatshirts made and sold and giving the proceeds to food banks and such, AND then that nursing website adaptation of it!

    Thanks, Elyse!

    Grrrrrrr. Whoever designed and sold a smoke detector that CANNOT have its battery replaced, but must be discarded and a new one bought should be forced to swallow the great Pacific Garbage Patch in one sitting.

    Just had one go off for having a low battery, and when it was finally prized open, one had to break the plastic to get at the non-standard battery that was wired into place. Evil. Just Evil.

    Tissue - even tissues can be recycled or composted. But planned obsolescence for a smoke detector? Evil, say I.

    How is it priced? Is it comparable to a smoke detector that can have its battery replaced? I don't like climbing on a stool to try to get the smoke detector down when it starts chirping, which in my case is usually at the worst possible time. And one of my neighbors always calls to tell me it's chirping (yes, I hear it and it takes me a few minutes to get the stepstool in position). Is the whole thing designed to be thrown away? It would end up in a landfill, which seems like a bad idea to me. I thought you weren't supposed to put batteries in a landfill?

    Apparently the whole thing was designed to be thrown away. Some batteries are okay for dispel, others should be recycled, and this was mixed plastic, metal and paper, so impossible to sort for recycling without spending considerable time and energy.

    I do not remember how much it cot - it's not like there was a label on the box saying "No replacing the battery on this one" when we bought it!
