I had an social event at work today and I had 3 glasses of wine. When I got home, I crashed and took a nap. I wonder if there's a way for me to enjoy wine without feeling tired.

@Anti so, how much gray hair have you and your wife gotten since having your daughter?

Not bad here. It was Pop-Pop's birthday so we got to eat steak and corn and dessert was homemade apple pie. Mmm.

Haha, I get a few here and there. We have mostly come to expect some sort of mess with her, at least this one was easy to clean up.

Good Morning all. Long day for me, 8 hours of work, 4 hours of class, plus 2+ hours of driving, I left home at 4:45am, will get home at 7:30pm.

Don't forget Sunday is Mothers Day.

I have to be careful with red wine......it tends to have an effect on me that is not really too family friendly to discuss.

So I flashed the radios from the 4.0.4 OTA that went out to a few phones last week, and am seeing a solid 4G connection at my desk for the first time. Its been holding for 30 minutes, I am currently tethering my tablet and updating apps on it. These radios seem like a definite improvement, those of you who are unlocked/rooted, I highly recommend them.

I have a 56" Samsung DLP that is almost 6 years old, on nearly all day (my wife likes the background noise), and I have only had to replace one bulb. I love that TV, although it sure would be nice to be able to wall mount something and get the floor space back.

I've only had to replace one bulb in my Sony in about the same period of time. Great tv. When the bulb goes again though, we're going LED. I'm not going to pay the ridiculous prices for bulbs when I could get a new LED tv for a few more bills.

Good morning. Have fun.

There is a row of five houses, each having a different colour. In these houses live five people of various nationalities. Each of them nurtures a different beast, likes different drinks and smokes different brand of cigars.

1. The Brit lives in the Red house.

2. The Swede keeps dogs as pets.

3. The Dane drinks tea.

4. The Green house is on the left of the White house.

5. The owner of the Green house drinks coffee.

6. The person who smokes Pall Mall rears birds.

7. The owner of the Yellow house smokes Dunhill.

8. The man living in the centre house drinks milk.

9. The Norwegian lives in the first house.

10. The man who smokes Blends lives next to the one who keeps cats.

11. The man who keeps horses lives next to the man who smokes Dunhill.

12. The man who smokes Blue Master drinks beer.

13. The German smokes Prince.

14. The Norwegian lives next to the Blue house.

15. The man who smokes Blends has a neighbour who drinks water.

Who owns the fish?

I've seen this one before so I'll keep my mouth shut, but it is possible to do with the information above.

Just got off the phone with AT&T customer support about over charges on my U-verse bill that have been recurring for the past 4 months (entire duration of my account with them). This is the 3rd time I've called about being charged too much. As I'm getting off the phone with the guy he says "Thank you for being the best part of AT&T"

Well...at least they're honest. AT&T CSRs sure as heck aren't the best part.

I have to say, I've always had good luck with VZW CSRs. Store folks not so much, but I now have a family member that works in a store, so that may change.

Yes, thank sweet Baby Jesus in his golden fleece diaper, it's Friday. And also and too...red wine almost instantly gives me a headache. All wine makes me sleepy. And drunk. Quickly.

I mean, I'm all for the natural ways of feeding your kids and how long you want to continue that is up to you....but doing that on a magazine cover when your child is that old....like you said Anti...when they connect the dots... I feel bad for the kid.

I can see pretty much all sides of the block for the Time story. The mother doing what she feels is right. The kid possibly facing problems with peers when he is older. Society being a bit weirded out because it doesn't follow the traditional thinking.
I think that one of the comments I heard on TV made a very good point - we have placed so much sexual innuendo on breasts that their original use has become something taboo to do outside your own home. I don't think a woman should just pull them out in the middle of a park but for feeding purposes, if done in a respectful manner, should not be cause for a media circus.

I'm not really disagreeing or anything with the story, but that picture on the front was a bit much, lol.

Eh, to be honest, I haven't read the story, just saw the picture, lol. But I get the point without even reading it. Had the discussion with the wife and some friends a few times. I've heard of, and know, people that have children old enough to ask for it and gain access unassisted. It's a little comical, but they feel like they are doing what is best. Personally, I think it could cause some psychological issues.

I think if you're breastfeeding babies, it's OK to do it in public. The babies can't eat and needs the mothers' breast milk to survive. When the infant is introduced to food, then I believe they should be breast feed at home. I don't think it's natural to breastfeed a children when they are over 2 years old.

I had a midwife through my pregnancy. We called her Mother Nature - 6 kids and all breast fed until they were 4 when they self weaned. They 'seemed' to be well adjusted. And I have a friend who was 5 when she stopped - she does still have a thing for the bewbies so I guess it could have some sort of effect.
Its one of those discussions that can get deep or funny or both and usually not cause any rifts between friends.

From the breast Feeding article in the Times

Quote:
It has been estimated that a natural weaning age for humans is between two and seven years. Family physicians should be knowledgeable regarding the ongoing benefits to the child of extended breastfeeding, including continued immune protection, better social adjustment and having a sustainable food source in times of emergency. The longer women breastfeed, the greater the decrease in their risk of breast cancer. There is no evidence that extended breastfeeding is harmful to mother or child.

Read more: Breast-Feeding Older Children: How Weird or Normal Is It? | Healthland | TIME.com
I can understand if you're from a third world country, the benefit of extended breast feeding is acceptable.

I question the points bolded for people in North America and Western Europe. The majority of the people are well off (above poverty) so, breast feeding as a source in times of emergency makes no sense. The WHO also said that the age to breast feed could go out to 7 years old. I find that way too old. I also don't see how extended breast feeding is better for the child socially.

These radios seem like a definite improvement, those of you who are unlocked/rooted, I highly recommend them.

That's great! Are these different radios from the 4.04 a couple of months ago?

You have gotten much better bulb life than us. Our tv is usually only on at night from around 7 our 8 until 11. ours was a Toshiba.

I imagine that the power cycles are far more detrimental to the life of the bulb than the on time.

Could be, even though we only turned it off and on once a day. We enjoyed the tv, but the new led is no comparison, it's picture is amazing.

SVT....San Diego zoo is great, as is sea world. Both great places to see, interact and visit with the animals. If you get a chance to go, and you are able...try to participate is some of the behind the scenes programs they offer. Such as a meal with the killer whales, penguin and monkey feeding, etc. Good luck and have fun!!

TGIF for all those Friday peeps....
