While walking in the woods, I saw:
many trees down (headed for a safer area),
and fire trucks zooming to the airport,
perhaps to rescue the flipped plane.

Costco is offering a good tasting Merlot wine (made by Blackstone) at an inexpensive price with a hefty rebate, currently: $90/case (of 12) and $24 rebate (apparently unlimited until the offer expires on 11/30).
The wine seems consistently uncorrupted (so often bottles go bad), and has significant tannins, which I consider one of the unsung health benefits of deep red, Cabernet-style wines.
The really tasty frozen blueberries I enjoyed so much have been replaced by not so good ones, perhaps tasting badly from too many pesticides. My guess.
Pesticides are high in fluoride, by the way.
The new blueberries’ food value is probably close to nil: the good is countered by the bad. “If it doesn’t taste good it’s not good.”
Kettle Sea Salt potato chips are still good, made with good fats and no MSG. Watch for MSG in their other varieties, which is sometimes labeled as yeast extract.

I’ve been trying to find higher quality streaming music online, and little did I know it was right in front of me — at Pandora.
I thought what if Pandora offers higher quality music to subscribers. And wouldn’t you know, 192kbs instead of maybe 32 — a huge jump in audio sound! HUGE!!!
It’s unfathomable to me that they wouldn’t advertise this feature in plain sight for all to see. Perhaps the hip-hop bee-boppers don’t care. But when it comes to instrumentals it makes all the difference in the world! Now sounds can touch the heart!
For me, anyway, at $36/year ($3/month), this is a no-brainer. No ads. Way better sound. Unlimited listening (free users get only 40 hours).
Go for it!
Also, I’m putting up a link at this site to my Pandora profile, if you want to see what I’m listening to. I’m using all 100 “radio stations” though, which will become more refined in time — especially now that it sounds so much better!
Live in love

For the first time, I decided to ask God for a longer list of what I should do. This is what I got.
1) “Take time to study.”
2) “Be afraid of no one.”
3) “Let them see your face.”
4) “Tell them the truth.”
5) “Write [a certain man] a letter.”
I never got to points 6-10, as I was so blown away, thinking about #5.
