Here is this week’s list of rants, short stories, healthy living advice, and other stuff from my favourite corners of the web.
Uncontainable. I was hooked on this story before I finished reading the first sentence in it.
Running Protects Your Brain For The Long Haul. It’s not just running, either. Physical fitness in general helps to prevent your brain from shrinking as you age. How interesting.
Do Not Touch Baby’s Face via Honest_Father. This entire post horrified me. I have no doubt that some people do all of those things, though.
The Last Unknown Man. What a fascinating tale. I can’t say much about it without giving away spoilers, but I never would have guessed that it was still possible for people to completely disappear from the public record at this point in history.
Is It Going to Rain? The only purpose of this site is to tell you if it’s going to rain in your city over the next couple of days. I don’t know how accurate it is, but I’ll be keeping an eye on it.
From Here Come the Holiday Wars Again via ReenieDiva:
It’s that time of year again. The snow falls gently, beautiful twinkling lights decorate trees and homes……and everyone seems to have an opinion and a list of rules on how everyone else should celebrate ‘the’ holiday. I don’t know about anyone else but I’m quite over this.
From A Compassionate Take on Why Misery Loves Company via ChristyBarongan:
