who knows how it works in other countries but check your non-dental insurance, it may have generic surgical coverage that includes wisdom teeth

no one told me this so i almost didn't use it when i was in a similar situation

having recently paid or attempted to pay the snark tax, i shant comment.

slept in one for a week every summer at a house we used to rent. it burned down. always did wonder how the waterbed reacted

  his years pass without her

who was loved upon a time

where the meadow nestles in the shadow

of the old crumbling wall, Roman wall

decrepit; aquiline but bent

  innocent as hypatia, heart in heart's palm

sweetly picking the bluebell and foxglove

humming melodies with no name anywhere

taut grass, scent of spring and youth

dreaming in argent, as queens do

  where now are burnished shields?

where now are bright stars?

where now are ladies' favors?

where now is flaxen hair?

only ghosts remain, imprints of footsteps

  and the rough stone is cold to touch

no chiming voice to wake his soul

to a vanished song, a once-proud company

in the twilight of an autumnal life

his years pass without her

heading to the UP myself this weekend, little getaway with an old girlfriend, hopefully no "talks" though. weather looks great, lake is gonna look great. pretty excited. have fun!

indeed, a single sentence eluded me. you've surely been a frequent enough recipient of my correspondence to be unsurprised

i think i should pay the snark tax as a general apology for my use of this website over the last seven years

"ideas are at the center of economic growth, which means that undeveloped and developing countries should take advantage of a sort of free information arbitrage -- many of the best ideas about growth, like property rights or correct marginal taxation, have already been thought of, tested, and proven in the developed world. the corollary is that the developed world cannot rest on its laurels; it must continue to innovate, and meta-innovate."

in my own words, teach? okay: "the third world needs intelligence, the first world needs innovation, and i'll be a mooncalf if any of it has a whit to do with 'education'"

biden and trump for me as well, though i won't be putting my money where my mouth is this time around because of the 10 percent cost of doing business (or whatever)

note: carter looked bad internationally and ford was never elected to begin with. hw was maybe just in the wrong place at the wrong time.

they aren't even on the ocean until like chapter 25 or something but after that it's a lot more fun
