    A uniquely American phenomenon too, part of our tendency toward impatience and valuing convenience above all. Why bother to actually TRAIN your dog? Just “put it away” when you’re not playing with it, like any other “possession.”
    Ugh.

    It’s a matter of perspective — I’m almost 50 and am definitely floored when I think about how much things have changed in my lifetime, but I think it’s incredibly exciting!


    Just had my 30th high school reunion, and I marvel at how great we all look — wow! I feel so fortunate for the longer, healthier life I still have ahead of me, compared to generations past.


    Yesterday I had a real-time face-to-face talk with a friend in Australia (I’m in the U.S.) There wasn’t even a time delay like there is in those interviews-by-satellite on TV. And it was basically FREE (since Skype doesn’t add any cost to the internet I already pay for) — So amazing!


    Had car trouble a couple weeks ago, just pulled out my phone and had help there in minutes. In those few moments I waited, I recalled the time in high school I blew out a tire, and had to walk along the interstate late at night by myself in the cold of winter, to get to a pay phone. And I thought about how GLAD I am, in such a situation, that it is modern-day now!


    There is always change, and it is always a mixture of good and bad, but it’’s your choice which to dwell upon. There are wonders all around you, should you choose to notice them.


    I can’t wait to see what happens next!

    Yeah, I too will forgo the whipped cream on my banana bread… but slathering a warm slice with butter: YUM!

    “I knew ONE….” is hardly evidence of what happened to ALL.
    And you didn’t even know one slave, you knew a story that had been passed through several generations from one, which may or may not have been a fair reflection of the truth.

    Nothing beats a “murder of crows.”

    My GPS starts to nag me after a year without updating — a message comes up on startup: “your map data is over a year out-of-date….go [here] to update…”

    Reminds me of a doctor’s visit I had when I was sick with a sinus infection. After doing the stethoscope thing, the doctor said, “yeah, it’s all in your head.” I gave her this startled indignant look, and she laughed as she realized what she’d said, explained “oh no, I mean that only your head is congested, your lungs sound clear!”

    In “orthodontist,” the “ortho” part means straight, right, correct; and the “dont” part refers to teeth.

    John W Kennedy ’s suggestion of “orthocerist” could work, incorporating the Greek root for horn, keras (ceras), as found in “rhinoceros” (rhino = nose, so this animal has a nose-horn), and that is parallel to the Greek root of donto in “orthodontist.”

    But I was thinking “orthocornist” might be more appropriate, since it utilizes the Latin root for horn (cornu) that is used to construct the word “unicorn.”
