The voting machines in my area have some drawbacks, other than the huge one: that there is no paper backup of the votes in PA. The machine was a little confusing to use, because you cast all your vote...
I’ve been binge-watching the final season of House of Cards on Netflix, and it’s a crazy, unreal season solving the mystery of what happened to Frank Underwood. Robin Wright’s cool mask of a fac...
My place is like a cargo section of a train station, boxes everywhere. So I have to concentrate on getting stuff out. Scrap metal is out by the curb, but no one has responded to the ad I put up about ...
