  14. The comfort zone is dangerous. If people stay in it they will be lost. But the Inner Circle isn’t really about your comfort zone it is more about focusing on what you can change, not focusing on things like the weather.The comfort zone is about staying away from things that are uncomfortable.There are a few differences but they do look a lot the same.

  16. I love reading what you write and learning about your journey Rachel. It gives me amazing insight into what it must be like when your child dies and a little window into the grieving process. Thanks for your honesty and willingness to share.

  18. Some airlines do charge more for heavy passengers, and some airlines do weigh their passengers before take-off. These are usually airlines that fly weight critical smaller planes.Weight carried is a part of airline costs, but not the major one. Airlines just figure an average passenger weight and set their minimum price accordingly, letting the skinny and small subsidize the large and obese, but it is incorrect to say that weight is not part of the costing orpricing exercize.

  19. And put into the equation and her sole mission, for now, is to get Abbott into the Lodge … She’s a control freak.….“She shouldn’t tell people what to do and what not to do,” complains one Liberal backbencher who has tested Abbott’s patience. “It’s perfectly understandable that Tony Abbott wants to stay on message. But MPs are MPs. As long as you’re not a member of the executive you’re entitled to talk about issues.” …… that’s where the negativity comes from, especially when you have junior shadows and MPs thinking, ‘Who are you to tell me what to do? You’re only a staffer’.”

  20. Ten dollars for the lot, you have to be kidding me. I love the round dish with handles and the oval platter. The finger bowl will clean up beautifully I bet. So fun to run across a great deal. My salvation army is pretty far from me, I have never been. I pass too many goodwills on the way. I never get there.

  21. “I categorise my friends: close friends, real life friends, acquaintances, colleagues, and online friends. Maybe the young’uns will just be better at it than us.”Hi Penny!I think you are right: they are already better at this than we are. I know my Monkey is much more cautious about who he lets into his inner sanctum than I am. (That sounds naughty.)

  22. Muito pertinente sua colocação Claudia, pois sabemos que a Educação a Distância não tem fronteiras, é um “mundo” totalmente aberto, onde todos têm mil possibilidades de aprendizagem. A formação dos professores através da modalidade a distância, permite um processo de consolidação da cultura digital, A modalidade a distância, por sua concepção e estrutura, já absorve o aluno dentro desta sociedade informacional, que obrigatoriamente fará uso das ferramentas tecnológicas, que vão sendo aprimoradas ao longo de sua aprendizagem.abraços

  25.  ( 2012.02.20 21:11 ) : I’ve been browsing on-line more than three hours lately, yet I never discovered any attention-grabbing article like yours. It is pretty price enough for me. In my opinion, if all web owners and bloggers made just right content material as you did, the internet will likely be much more helpful than ever before.

  26. I will have to get my hands on it. A Rickards porter would be inetersting. I think that, for a macro, even their poor stuff is good-ish. It’s drinkable at least. It’s, like Sleemans, a good introduction to better beers for a newb, and at least a passable drink for those with more refined palettes. I didn’t mind the honey brown. But if the dark is better, then it’s worth it. The white is nice.

  27. My heart broke on November 6th. I just knew we were going to get real leaders back in our White House. You are an inspiration, as is your husband. Much love to the both of you, and thank you for all that you do.

  28. Who do you refer by you guys? who are those you guys?If you are not convinced by the supreme court,go assassinate him or give up and make sure he doesn’t win future elections.These are the only choices, your baseless observations are of no help to anyone here.

  29. I have been browsing online more than three hours today, yet I never found any interesting article like yours. It is pretty worth enough for me. In my view, if all webmasters and bloggers made good content as you did, the web will be a lot more useful than ever before.

  30. John,Don’t worry here—I’m totally boycotting O’Reilly after last night. He is now KING OF PINHEADS!

  31. If only they had consulted Ezo before arranging her marriage. The story is sad, but the soup is hearty, village-like. I like the way you have topped olive oil + dried mint. Is this a traditional Mediterranean topping?

  33. They may do what they did with Dr. Tiny Cat’s Trauma Center… the thermometer was the hardest one to obtain, and they gave that out on the last day of the series. Maybe the turkey comes out tomorrow.

  34. Asalamu AlaikumThank you for your comments, it is good to have you here, regarding halwa and how crust is formed, usually it happens whenyou have it for few days as it gets old the crunch will form on top.

  35. Thanks for your tips Patrick. The header will improve performance, I’m going to find out how to do it in Tomcat. I think I can change the headers in the servlet filter. I’m not sure whether GZip will improve client side performance, but I also will give that a try. I’m affraid unzipping takes more time than transferring the extra bytes.

  36. Hello, Neat post. There is an issue together with your web site in web explorer, would check this… IE nonetheless is the market chief and a large element of people will miss your great writing due to this problem.

  39. if you put all faith in God and let him save your marriage, then it will happen. the main reason that people’s marriage’s fall apart is because they don’t put it in God’s hands and make him first prioraty. after all, God never intended for there to be devorce in this world!!! i’ll be prayin’ for ya.

  40. "Our Republic and its press will rise or fall together. An able, disinterested, public-spirited press, with trained intelligence to know the right and courage to do it, can preserve that public virtue without which popular government is a sham and a mockery. A cynical, mercenary, demagogic press will produce in time a people as base as itself." Joseph Pulitzer, May 1904 in The North American Review.From a former Newsweek reader and subscriber

  41. Merci ! Dommage que ca soit pas convivial à parcourir Il faudrait présenter les dessins l’un à la suite de l’autre, comme dans un « Powerpoint »

  42. “Dad, Dad! if I tidy my room can we go to McDonalds?” is the oft heard cry in my house. I reply that Mr Tummy would prefer that you eat some fruit instead. That doen’t work very well. But Fruit becomes part of the deal. I trade off badness for goodness. Fortunately, I manage to not take them through the Golden Arch more than once a month.What kind of world is it, that we reward our children with the worst food in history?

  43. Even if if can be accurately observed that post-modernism has been enunciated by persons more susceptible than usual to making foolish statements, that does not address the necessary corollary that post-modernism has generated a number of resilient and non-trivial statements. Sokal and Bricmont acknowledge this truth by implication.Detractors of post-modernism would be better employed attempting to identify the latter category of statements. Then they should attempt to demolish them, if they can.

  44. That purple blouse is absolutely gorgeous, and thanks for the tip about not always going for the "rich" areas: I'd always thought they'd be the best places for thrifting, but I've found some of my best bargains in the town next to us, which is anything but a wealthy place! And the thrift stores in the "nicer" areas always seem to have much higher prices anyway, so my motto is to never just walk by a charity store, no matter where I find it!

  45. if you buy from unregulated dealers you are aiding and abetting the commission of a crime and subject to punishment on that ground. There would still be the problem of teenagers getting the drug, but by destroying the market for the small time dealers there would be far less access to illicit product. Such a system could be economically feasible and in fact result in massive savings if it were applied to all scheduled drugs.

  47. My hubby was always after me about decorating our place. So I when I decided to decorate our bedroom it was a surpise to him. My hubby is 1/4 cherokee and I had given him a indian puzzle for our first anniversary that displays a indian couple and a wolf pup. I had it glued and hanged it up above our bed with a candle sconce on each side of it. Also the pictures in our bedroom are all of us and what we like.

Julia, ficou simplesmente linda!Sou morena (café com leite) tenho os olhos caidinhos, com pouco cilios e tenho olheira, depois de algumas horas, o rímel e deliniador (quando arrisco) se torna o centro das atenções, pois escorrem que é uma beleza.

  50. Wow. What a biased view on something you obviously have yet to learn more about. I recommend you to read up on the long and twisted historical relationship that Korea and Japan share. I have heard that Japan is also trying to claim that an island of the Chinese is theirs. Seeing any patterns here?

  51. One way to save money is to make bag lunches at home. My hubby works in a big city and would easily spent $50 a week on lunches. By making it at home I spend about a quarter of that. Thanks for giving me the opportunity to win Rene's ebook!Denisesundaze517{at}aol{dot}com

  54. If you haven’t already, check out the ’79 version of Dracula with Frank Langella. I’ve seen it about 50x and it never gets old. Goofy but I love it. I probably made Shawna watch it when we were 10 or 11 because I had this thing for Mr. Langella…

  55. Have you ever thought about adding a little bit more than just your articles? I mean, what you say is valuable and all. But think of if you added some great images or videos to give your posts more, “pop”! Your content is excellent but with pics and video clips, this blog could undeniably be one of the very best in its field. Awesome blog!

  56. Good for you girl! If you need any recipes or advice I can certainly help you. Been there done that! Also, if you need a walking/work out buddy/motivator don't hesitate to ask! I'd love to help you, and I need to lose a few lbs myself and I'm super lazy!

  57. Bonjour,j'ai une petite question pour vous. Je me suis décidé à acheter cette compilation. Elle est effectivement superbe. cependant mon exemplaire a un défaut qui fait sauter la tête de lecture. J'ai écrit à Honest John's chez qui je l'avais acheté et ils m'ont dit que toutes les copies sont comme cela. La votre comporte elle également des défauts ?Merci.

  58. Next time I read a blog, I hope that it doesn’t disappoint me as much as this particular one. I mean, Yes, it was my choice to read through, however I really believed you would probably have something helpful to talk about. All I hear is a bunch of crying about something you can fix if you weren’t too busy looking for attention.

  59. Happy 91st day and I’m already looking forward to the 100th day…haha!Thanks for the super awesomeage post, Pastel! That top pic from the Indonesia concert is gorgeous….aaahh, memories of the wind-blowing machine! More buzz for ING and that’s good!What a humongous basket from super go-getter Karin!

  61. Nanul – I’ve been thinking about the point you made “If the blogger is getting paid, he or she should understand that whoever pays is going to dictate his or her views.” for quite some time now 🙁 The problem is, how do you reconcile the need for freedom and the understanding, that whoever pays is going to TRY to dictate their views? Is it possible?

  63. So what is the fourth quest? Is it all this orality nonsense? May be it should not be a search for the illusive Jewish Jesus but for a real Jew, for example, referred to as a prophet in the Gospel of Judas. His name appears in various anachronistic interpolations in writings attributed to Josephus, and he was ‘replaced’ in his position of leadership after ‘falling’.
