Help me identify this song... Pet Sounds + Joni Mitchell = ?

Help me find a song! It was on Sirius radio on July 23, between 10am and 3pm mountain time. It was a female singer singing over what sounded like a very Pet Sounds-like arrangement. She sounded like Joni Mitchell to me. (Maybe it was Joni Mitchell!) The song also sounded very familiar. I thought it was Both Siders, Now, but I listened to that song again and that's just guitar. This song sounded just a little more upbeat, more poppy, but equally as beautiful. Any ideas?

Therapist reccomendation in metro Chicago

Can someone please suggest a cognitive behavioral therapist in Chicago that they have found to be helpful? I tried talk therapy once with a non CBT person and found it cliched and unhelpful, but I suspect I really should go seek assistance. I have the usual bento box of depression and anxiety, male 30s/40s. Unemployed (not the source of depression anxiety, but certainly not helping), so bonus for sliding scale. Bonus for Oak Park/River Forest/ Forest Park.

PC Power supply help

Need some advice please. I tried to install a new Power supply in my 2 year Old Dell PC in anticipation of installing a new Hi Spec Graphics card. Did all the necessary connections (I think) except connecting up the Sata cable to the Optical Disc drive (It wouldn't reach, I'll come to that in a minute). Powered it up, nothing. I noticed a light came on, on the motherboard (so It's getting power right??) Took out the power supply, refitted the old one and it all works. Questions - 1.Does not attaching the Sata cable to the optical drive matter?? 2.Can I buy a Sata cable extension?? 3.Is the light (showing on the motherboard) indicative of the Power supply working?? 4,Is it possible that the new power supply is not functioning??? 5.Is there something really obvious I'm missing?? Any help advice would be gratefully accepted, thanks

If I knew Dr. House, I'd ask him

(medfilter) asking for my girlfriend who's beginning to think she's crazy after the 2nd emergency room visit in less than a year where she's been told there's nothing wrong. Her primary complaint is stabbing pain on her right side, right at her ribcage. Sometimes radiating into her chest. Pain can go from annoying (most of the time) to debilitating. She states that she's had some kind of pain there for most of her adult life. I know you are not her doc but I'm hoping that the symptoms might ring a bell to someone. [more inside]
