    I'm such an evangelist for a couple of laugh-out-loud non-fiction writers: Mary Roach and A.J. Jacobs. MR is a science writer, and Jacobs is sort of an experience chronicler: he does various...

    I use this and like it. Never had a horse have a reaction, there is plenty in the tube to liberally annoint all the places they indicate (think it's poll, withers, spine tail head, hocks, and...
  9. Speech therapy as an adult: is it effective? Or exercises to help with "s" sounds

    I have a lisp: not the kind that makes me pronounce "s" as "th," but a very sibilate, hissing "s" sound. When I was a kid, I went to someone (I think it was a routine speech and hearing test, maybe...

    I thought about posting a thread on this too. My sister and BIL turned me onto Blue Apron, and it is fantastic. Food quality is very good, although of course you do get a few blips: for instance, a...

    That was a great, creepy book!
