You know where's it at, but you don't know how to spell it? It's Stevenson, not Stephenson.

And I'd hate to commute from either Chattanooga or Huntsville. The roads are not great, and it would take longer than you estimate, especially with traffic.

I've been a Charter customer for years and I am totally satisfied. I have super fast and reliable internet service with no data caps and never even a hint of throttling.

And every month AT&T sends me a letter offering "high speed" internet service that's less than one tenth as fast. Ha, fat chance!

Scalia is right, and the Republic is officially dead. There's no coming back from the slippery slope of SCOTUS re-writing law to please the administration. Congress is just a rubber stamp for whatever the administration wants nowadays. Almost like a dictatorship, wouldn't you say?

It's over. Welcome to Fascist America. You all wanted it. Hope you're happy.

HFCS is the worst offender, but even simple fructose is bad. It goes straight to the liver. You should keep your intake of the stuff to the barest minimum you can. It's as bad as alcohol for your body, and you don't even get the benefit of a buzz. Just lay off the fructose and your liver will thank you.

Stick to dextrose (glucose) for your sweetener. It's much easier to digest. Just don't go overboard with it.

Count yourself lucky. Since Amazon has been using the USPS more and more, their 2 day shipping to Prime customers has been more like "you'll get it when the Post Office eventually gets it to you".

I would love it if they gave me a choice of shippers. The worst one in my area is FedEx. I honestly believe the drivers can't read. The Post Office is slower, but at least they deliver to the right address.

I've never been canoeing before, but I imagine there must be just a few simple heuristics you have to remember... Yes, don't fall out, and don't hit rocks.
