A Current Topic. The U.S. tried permanent Daily Savings Time in the 1970s; it didn’t last.  What the end of “time change” means in your part of the country.

I’m not sure that I know what this means.  Maybe it means something different to every woman who reads it.  But I’m trying to figure it out.

    I think the line in The Last Word means if you put yourself first in what you do, everything else on the list will be done well.

    After having lived with 5 dishwashers, ranging from manufactured in 2000 through 2018, I no longer believe these articles about “do not prerinse”. Most of my dishwashers were energy star, recent ones had the super-duper optical sensors. I read their manuals, I annoyed my partner with proper loading. And yet, 2-day-old avocado smeared on a plate would not come off.

    • Sarah says:

      Absolutely agree! The dishwasher that my parents installed in 1989 would take anything off; we never rinsed dishes growing up. My dishwaser from 2009? Not so much. We rinse everything. I now consider the dishwasher more of a disinfector than a washer.

    Heads up Abra, the second daylight saving link seems to go to the same NPR article as the first.

    The Revlon oil-absorbing roller is so fantastic. I bought several as just a little goodie to add to my bridesmaid gifts. My wedding was in the middle of August and I thought they might be helpful with dealing with makeup and the heat of a long day. Didn’t think I’d use mine much beyond that, but then I threw it into my bag when I packed for a week and a half long trial. It became a lifesaver. It is such an easy and simple way to look (and feel) refreshed.

    While I’m finally past the teen/college years of constantly oily skin thanks to poor skincare, general lack of sleep, and questionable diet and alcohol habits, long stressful work days can still take their toll. I keep this roller in my purse and it really does make a difference.

    I want to share this article about blue light glasses. There’s still not concrete evidence that they have a positive effect.
