Flip-Flop Weather

Today my wife was excited.  The mercury is expected to pass 60°F today for only the second time this year. According to her 60° is officially flip-flop weather.

So I tried to think where we go from here:

  • 50°F Hoodie Weather
  • 60°F Flip-Flop Weather
  • 70°F Shorts Weather
  • 80°F Short Shorts and Tank Top Weather (or SSTT for you txtrs)
  • 90°F Bikini Weather
  • 100°F Hoodie Weather again, because you should be inside with the air conditioner blasting!

Let us know about your weather in your neck of the woods, and if you're brave, send us a picture.

  1. The weather in Corning, NY (near the PA boarder) area is just turning from gray to lighter gray. We did get a few rare days of sunshine, but the left-overs from winter have kept the temperature at just below the prerequisite for flip-flop weather (according to your wife and my girl friends). Of course, I don't get out much so, don't take my description without a bit of skepticism.

I'm Disabled and I Can Prove It

I'm disabled. 
I was born in 1970. About a year later I was diagnosed with spinal muscular atrophy. I never walked. I got my first wheelchair at kindergarten age, and my first power wheelchair in sixth grade.
Yet, around 4 to 6 times per year I have to, for one reason or another, prove that I'm disabled.
Granted, I'm 5 feet nothin', 112 pounds and sit in an electric wheelchair, but apparently that's just anecdotal evidence… We need science!
The Good Doctor
Every couple months I have to send my physician a form and ask him to fill it out. He has to state that I have spinal muscular atrophy, identify the diagnosis date, explained that my prognosis is something akin to "ain't getting better any time soon" and sign it.
With new Medicare regulations, the good doctor is not allowed to sign the said form without seeing me "face-to-face" to prevent fraud. Although I'm extraordinarily healthy, hospitalized last in 1996 for something unrelated to my dis…

Endangered Gorilla Killed after Child Falls into Habitat

One of this week’s trending topics on Facebook and twitter was a tragic story. A small boy fell into the gorilla habitat at the Cincinnati Zoo. Minutes later the western lowlands gorilla, a critically endangered species, was shot and killed by zoo personnel.
A tragic story has been made even more tragic through misinformation and misguided opinion on social media.
Here are six ways that Facebook and twitter users made the situation worse.
It’s the mother’s fault!
I’m a father of 14-year-old twins, a boy and a girl. I don’t know a single father or mother that has never in their lives lost sight of their three-year-old. I compare it to a trip to Walmart. You’ll see a toddler screaming and a mother completely exasperated, and usually another child being completely ignored. Those of you without children stand in judgment. I know I did. “If that were my child I would…” I’ll let you complete the sentence in condescending judgment. 
Parents, however, understand. We’ve all been there. Every …
