My noise issue is little kids who never just talk

but yell everything.

I spend a lot of time in the pool area of our YMCA. The kids are incredibly loud there, which I understand because they're having fun, but in the locker rooms they shout and yell everything they say.

I am usually listening to a recorded book or a podcast and I literally can't hear my recording when they are in the locker room.

I wonder if they are so loud because their parents don't respond to them until the decibels have risen a few notches.

When my kids were little, I reminded them in public places that no one except me came there to hear them. We always had a lot of fun together without excessive noise.

Meanwhile, has anybody ever measured the decibel level of public toilets flushing? They are so loud they hurt my ears.

Laura Pack Your Bags

I loved that.

I think she changed it to Laura, Pour Me a Drink. Love that one, too.

Count me!


That was

a heck of a tease.

The Shock Doctrine was written by

Naomi Klein, I believe.

Not to mention that parts of it look like

those spooky mental hospitals in old movies.

Think Snake Pit.

I heard today

that an old friend lost his home. They got out with two carloads of their things but lost everything else.

Stay safe, Californians.


or pre-stroke.

Oh, adorable.



My dogs loved that video!
