    Great link.  Duh, living in a rental will make you happier by reducing stress. You just call the landlord when anything breaks.  What was I thinking.  We bought a house after we had been married for 16 years. Houses are project that never come to completion. LOL
    Counting blessings makes you aware that things really could be worse.

    And it's another new day. And what new adventures await...? Is a new hub in my immediate future? Will HP unpublish it when I sell it to the New York Times website for $10,000? Stay tuned for these and other adventures in the land of HP Oz. big_smile

    We have hub challenges, why not chore challenges? I've got to kick myself loose from slacker mode. I hereby challenge myself to do 10 chores before I can make another forum post.

      Happiness is successfully completing 20 minutes weed work. I even got a 2-fer out of it; I needed the exercise.

    I must be feeling pretty good these days. There are 2 rants I've written today, but then decided to not post. Both rants were triggered by news items I saw. Why did I not post them? Because I realized it would accomplish nothing good.

        One had to do with delusionalism. The other had to do with ongoing, extremely unethical conduct.
