Are you having a bad day my little duckling?

You just need to think happy thoughts and they will manifest themselves. It says to in The Secret.

States all around us pay ~ $22,000/yr in-state tuition at their state university. University of Illinois is $32,000/yr. It will actually be cheaper to pay out-of-state tuition at some other state U.

It's pissing me off. What a fucked up state.

I am having a hard time wrapping my head around those numbers, Pete. The inflation in health care is getting whomped by the inflation in education costs.



Another reason I'm glad I don't have kids.

Another friend with breast cancer. WTF is it with this fucking disease? Every time a woman in her 40s get it, they are told they are "so young" and yet... all the women I know who've been diagnosed recently are in their 40s. with kids my age. In a school of 400 children, there have been t least 8 moms diagnosed in the past 5 years -and these are moms of the kids I know -my kids' peers, so it's probably more like only 200 children. Over 5% of families. Is that ridiculously high? or does it just seemlike it. I don't remember anyone's mom having breast cancer when i was a kid, but maybe it just wasn't talked about and they wore wigs
