If you read books of the fictional variety, what are your favorite books? Authors?
The Beatles played Liverpool’s Cavern for the first time — at lunchtime:
I wrote about this young Arizona couple before, but I can’t find the original link. They’ve only been married a short time and are dealing with the husband being diagnosed with a brain tumor, loss of income, problems keeping the house, etc. I don’t remember the exact details, but it was pretty horrific.
Anyway, the wife sent me a lovely thank you note because I sent her a book from her Amazon wish list. (She’d said she didn’t have enough money for anything, let alone books, and to a compulsive reader like me, that was unthinkable. So I sent her one.)
I think it would be an amazing kindness if some of you did the same. Here’s the link for the wish list. If you can, let them know another human being was thinking of them today.
I got married on this day at the absolutely silly age of 19. It was snowing. As I said the vows, my knees were knocking uncontrollably underneath my long green dress. Big clue!

Damn you, Koch brothers, for this arctic cold. A high of 16 today.
This is exactly the question I would have asked if I’d been in this position: “If I’m getting chemo and radiation, why are you taking out the lymph nodes?”
My guess is, a lot of women did ask that question. And the surgeons told them to stop that crazy talk and just let the doctors do their job.
This is why I mostly can’t stand female pop singers – they mangle and distort every note. This is also why I can’t stand most of the singers on “American Idol.”
I wish everyone would watch this and read this. It is unthinkable that women will be denied the ability to get an abortion, and even more unthinkable that a Democratic president will sign the bill if it passes, but it sure looks like it’s about to happen. Bipartisanship!
