I Know What Makes Me Comfortable
I Know What Makes Me Tick

It is raining today. I have the windows open and the tv on mute.

I love the sound of rain.

It has a light tap, tap, tap to remind you to listen and a collective shhhh of a calming, comforting hug.

Rain is my renewal - it makes me sleepy; it helps me slow down; it washes away my tension

Rain reminds me to breathe

Rain is my center

Honoring 9/11 Victim - Barbara G Edwards

Barbara G Edwards

Age: 58
Place of Residence: Las Vegas, NV

Barbara Edwards was taken from us on September 11, 2001 when the plane she was in - American Airlines flight 77 - flew into the Pentagon. She was traveling that day with two of her good friends, Darlene "Dee" Flagg and Wilson "Bud" Flagg who were also taken in the tragedy.

Mrs. Edwards, as she was known to her students, was a high school teacher. She taught German and French language classes at Palo Verde High school. She had recently begun sharing her German classes with students at the Community College of Southern Nevada.

Warm memories of time with her are still being shared across the internet and on her legacy.com guest book. Barbara is portrayed in these outpouring by friends and family as a positive and upbeat person that did her best to share those feelings with those around her. She is clearly missed as a teacher and as a caring individual that many could trust and depend upon.

A scholarship program to remember Barbara Edward's contributions to the world was established to benefit students studying German. It pays for tuition, books, and an undetermined one-month immersion program in a German-speaking country for the recipient(s). If you are interested in making a donation to the scholarship fund, please send your donation to:

No matter where Iím at I canít pretend Iíve found something better than where Iíve been

Dear Verizon Wireless,

I have lived in the same proximity for the last four years and it wasn't until I upgraded to the "fabulous" EnV2 that I had problems.

Ridiculous numbers of dropped calls. And never in the same place twice. I'm talking like 4 dropped calls during one conversation.

You replaced my phone, it still doesn't work.

You moved me to tier two tech support, it took over a week to get a response when you promised 24-48 hours.

The answer - marginal coverage area.

Are you fucking kidding me?

I've lived here for four years with no problems and now, after I get one of your "high end phones," you want be to believe that part of the Washington metro area - in which you have repeaters in even the metro tunnels - is really a marginal coverage area?!?

Bite me, Verizon
