    Psychological Considerations in Winter Coats

    Living in an area that has been frequented by part of the Polar Vortex this Winter has given me the opportunity to observe the varied ways that people dress for chilly weather. As anyone who lives in a chilly region knows, there is considerable variation in how people dress for Winter days. Through the decades I have tried many sorts of coat, and I have found little difference in warmth among them. The materials, thickness, etc. seem to ...

  5. Update

    My grandma has been in the hospital for about a week now, it's nothing terrible but she need antibiotics injected in her veins and she needs to be constantly monitored for that. Since I'm technically without a job to do at the moment (unless you call waiting for an admission email a job), I go to the hospital in the mornings and take care of her and check up to see if she needs anything: CT scans and etc. Anyway, mostly there isn't much to do around there so I take my kindle with me and read my ...
