Tessa, a 3-year-old sweet, gentle, affectionate gal, is happiest when spending time with her people. She has beautiful, bunny-soft fur that you just can’t keep from petting over and over again. That’s OK though — this type of behavior is encouraged by Tessa, considering she loves attention and loves to be petted. Tessa especially enjoys petting if it involves ear rubs, chest rubs, chin scratches, or all of the above. It is fun to watch how much she appreciates being pet. Don’t be surprised if Tessa climbs into your lap for cuddle time. She’s hoping to not only score additional petting, but brushing as well.

NEW YORK (AP) — A nation, a workplace, an ethnicity, a passion, an outsized personality. The people who comprise these things, who fawn or rail against them, are behind Merriam-Webster's 2014 word of the year: culture.
Some years ago I read about Charles Brown, a World War 2 pilot on his first mission, just before Christmas, 1943. His B-17 had been shot to pieces by German fighters and anti-aircraft guns.

Whenever I would get to this one gym, there was one particular gentleman that embodied the whole feel of the place. He was an unexpected surprise. Albert was an amazing gift to many different people. Patrons go to the gym to work out and feel good. Albert, a janitor, was a broad-shouldered man. He was dark-skinned with a distinctive shiny head. He had served our country in the U.S. Navy. He worked hard to make the place look good. He cleaned up other people’s mess. It was a dirty job — a thankless job on hands and knees cleaning dirty toilets. He served people with pride and professionalism.

Centuries ago, those who suffered mental illness were often committed to “madhouses.” These so-called treatment centers were about as brutal, barbaric and inhumane inventions as could be humanly conceived.

Every time I load updates on my computer, I seem to get a lot more than I want. It’s so slow now I’ll have to ask one of my tech-savvy friends to declutter it. The reason for my angst is the mysteriously enhanced prevalence of the aptly named spinning wheel of death. You know the little symbol that appears to let you know that your web page selection is supposed to be loading. That tiny whirling dervish that just keeps on going round and round, while you stare at the screen wondering what’s taking so long, take a brief timeout to water your plants, visit the washroom, get a cup of coffee, and still end up twiddling your thumbs. Strangely enough, I can watch dreamy-eyed at clothes whirling and flopping around the laundromat dryer. But the moment that mini-me dryer equivalent appears whirling on my computer screen, I get restless and agitated. At least we know something purposeful is happening at the laundromat, whereas the computer offers no guarantees.
