No, the En $ Aye is Skynet and both Google and Apple will give them all of your information.

According to Ethical Consumer Nokia is the best phone company. You have to be a member of their site to view their detailed ratings, but Apple is listed as a sample, and I'm pretty sure that they are ranked as the worst.

The best network is probably a non profit company called The People's Operator that donates 25% of their revenue, and 10% of your bill to charities. They are based in the UK for now, but they are planning on expanding to the US and other countries and teaming up with the founder of wikipedia.

It is one of those mornings, my friends. I got too high on optimism over the weekend, and I am crashing hard.

sorry to hear that. It sucks when that happens. I hope it isn't due to anything big/important unfolding opposite to what was desired though.

To be clear, I have no idea what that actually means, but still: sounds fancy.

I got about ten white people on facebook telling everyone they know to stop being racist. Made me about bust a gasket. Because they can't yell at the people they want to, they yell at all their friends who hate racism just as much as they do. Stupid.

You're mad about this...yeah, so am I. You don't need to tell me. I'm on the internet too. Why do people act like they were the only person who saw a news broadcast to millions?

Today is Mom's birthday, and I was looking forward to a great day.

But then I found out - on Facebook, not from family members - that my great grandmother died early this morning. Since then, I've been feeling equal parts angry and sad.

I'm not upset with my Mamaw; she has a lot to deal with right now. However, my uncle could at least have called to let us know instead of leaving us to find out on Facebook, of all places. I had to tell Mom when she got home from grocery shopping, and Dad still doesn't know.

Dang, Alan. That's messed up. I'm sorry for your loss and I hope you get everything figured out.

We finally got home 15 minutes ago after a long day in Huntersville for the funeral. My emotions are still seesawing, but I think I'm finally starting to let go and remember my Grannie as she was.

After a few weeks of being as proactive as I can about finding a job, no still luck. Several people have suggested to me that I should loom out of state, which would be fine....if I had a car. Sigh.

I'm in a dark place right now. I don't know if I'm going to come out of it. Please keep me in your thoughts.

Hey. Our thoughts are with you.

I know this sounds trite, but rest assured that things get better.
