Carnival of the Optimists #11: Friends from afar
Hi there! The Carnival will be up tonight, but I have to skedaddle, because a buddy has come in unexpectedly from out of town, and I need to drink his health. In the meantime, check out this week's Progress+Bootstraps Combo: the RealAge Test. Absolutely spot-on ways to slow aging and increase sheer physical quality of life.
Oh. And here's a picture of a cute and fluffy kitten. See you in a bit...
UPDATE: Whee, that was fun...
Okay, where were we... well, since we're going in sort of backwards order this evening, Todd MacMillan, a self-described "avid reader," (I have an avid reader? Wow...) sends along another confirmation that there are cancer-munching viruses out there, and they seem to be perfectly harmless to us, to boot.
Okay, what's the good news out there? Well, Soldiers' Angel asks, "What Do The FBI, a Harley Davidson Woman's Club, Soldiers Angels and Minimus Have in Common?" Something pretty cool...
And Autumn, of Janus Gate, couldn't get a full post up time, but points out some good news, indeed... some folks out in Arizona just got real lucky, when the Hand of God(tm) seemed to reach out to stop wildfires from burning their homes.
And, Bootstraps for Clever Spouses... who loves headaches? Who loves not having them any longer? Well, Bad Example has figured out "what to do when the heating pads go belly up... pretty damned clever. Even more clever than Technogypsy's lovely wife, who is a pediatrician and uses cheap bags of frozen veggies as cold pads... but truly, figuring out the hot version is a stroke of genius.
Okay, well, this has been all backwards, so... hello!
