My husband and I were enjoying the new 'Godspeed, You Black Emperor' album, entitled 'Asunder, Sweet and Other Distress.' We were digging it. Then we got to song #3, "Lamb's Breath"... at some point in the song (hard to say when, and I'm too spooked to listen to it again) the keyboard drops into a long droning sound... [more inside]
I'm curious to know your stories, or what it is that keeps you happy in the relationship you are in? Also is it possible to grow in love with a person when you are in a happy relationship? Before I confused love with infatuation and I don't want to go through that again! [more inside]
What's a sensitive Thank You card wording for the surviving widow of one of my friends? She sent us a gift for our recent wedding even after he passed away (and subsequently I did not invite her alone, but had sent a Save-the-Date when he was alive). I'm probably over thinking this but I don't want to trigger anything emotional. I don't really know her. I want to show incredible gratitude while acknowledging her loss. This is something I have not dealt with fortunately in other instances. [more inside]

He went above and beyond. I can't tell you details about the sensitive and personal case that he heard last (he announced "cases x and y will be last"), thereby ensuring the courtroom was cleared. Besides just being an awesome person. Would I be allowed to send him a heartfelt note of thanks? If it matters, he is a county judge.

I work with a local non-profit advocacy organization that is working on changing behaviors (promoting walking & biking in town). We charge for membership, but recently someone suggested we expand our membership by making it a pay-what-you-can (or want) sort of system and possibly we would have more cash and volunteers to work with. Can someone point me to articles/books/anything about how has worked for other non-profits or businesses?

Can I buy a cheap local phone and "pay as you go" credit?

Anyone know this questioner's conundrum? the statement I'm searching for describes the attempt of the speaker to "not think of you" and subsequent efforts to avoid the seemingly inevitable results of thinking about the elephant when trying like crazy not to, heeding the exhortation "DON'T THINK ABOUT AN ELEPHANT!". My inclusion of the elephant reference is as a descriptive aid, not part of the musing of the speaker, by the way. Tao? Buddhist? Zen? Certainly meditative, but all I got on Google were answers pertaining to present-day songs and the like..... Ugh. It is something of a brain-teaser, but highly enlightening in its treatment of helping one get around the mental chatter that seems to predominate thinking. Or, not thinking, in this case. I can find it in none of my books, nor on the net. I can't be the only one who has read this. Not certain about the era in which it originated, nor country, although if I were to speculate madly I'd say Japan, perhaps? Arrrgh. Frustrating. Damn ADD. Thanks, folks-I'll try and check back in ASAP.

UK Mobile Phone Filter: I'm going to be in London for a week and I have a Nexus One (unlocked) with no SIM. I'd like about 30 minutes talk time, 15 texts, and 100mb of data/web. I'd like to spend between £5 and £10 on a SIM/Plan and I want to do this as easily as possible. Basically, I want to be able to walk into a shop and say "Give me the XYZ sim." place £5/£10 on the counter, then walk out in less than the time it took you to read this question. [more inside]

As of last week, I have a bone marrow donor (Praise, God!). Because he's a "domestic" donor, I have to wait a full year before I know his identity (and only if he wishes to share it, of course), but I just found out that I can correspond with him anonymously through a long train of doctors, social workers, and representatives. I'd like to send him a thank you of some kind, but how does one thank a person for giving the gift of life? [more inside]

Google search was great, until now. Now it asks you "Did you mean this" and then populates the first two results with the term you didn't type, but Google thinks you MUST have meant, because they are smarter than you. So, what's a good search engine for someone who loves the old google search simplicity? (P.S. Live and Yahoo are far worse)
