Just got the email that Nuzzel is shutting down after being acquired by Twitter. I didn’t use it every day but I used it often enough to that I will miss it. It will be curious to see what Twitter does with it.
The fact that my kitchen sink drainer basket doesn’t let the water drain no matter the position I put it in, is really bothering me today. The basket is removable so it is not a serious problem, but today it is really irritating.

Everyone who has done research on productivity and goal setting has learned the acronym S.M.A.R.T, which refers to a specific, measurable, attainable, relevant and temporal database.

This sounds really great, the problem there is no record of this study ever existing. This is one of the interesting things I am learning reading the book The Antidote-Happiness for People Who Can’t Stand Positive Thinking
After 1 ½ days without it , we have gotten our hot water back. Freezing cold shower es no bueno.
I woke up without any hot water this morning. Called for repairs around 8:00 and it is now 13:30 and I am still waiting. The shower this morning was very brisk and very short! Do not want to make that a daily habit.
