Everyone is talking about the weather.
It doesn’t matter where you live — it’s snowing or icing, and the temps are dangerously low. Everyone is being told to stay indoors.
It’s for our own protection.
Yet in the midst of all this cold, a few bulbs can flourish in just a few inches of water.
In three days, I have watched them go from simple green stems to three visible blooms (and a hint of more to come).
Makes me believe that spring is more than just a groundhog’s shadowy promise.

Hey, Time Warner Cable — mark the date on your calendar! Someone (me) is giving you positive feedback.
(I’m as shocked as you are.)
TWC recently changed the way they order their listings in the on-screen program guide.
In the past, they listed all movies and TV shows that began with ‘The’ under ‘T’…which is stupid. You might miss a program altogether if you forget that all important article tacked on the front of the title.
But recently — I’m not sure how recently, but I watch a lot of TV, so I’m guessin’ it hasn’t been that long ago — they changed their policy. Now a movie like ‘The Last Five Years’ (which opens in theaters and OnDemand today) is listed under the letter ‘L.’
How groundbreaking. How logical. How unlike Time Warner Cable.
Let’s hear it for common sense!

I have seen a lot of articles of late on how to achieve the desired posture while sitting at my desk.
I didn’t use to have to worry about this kind of thing.
The folks who requisitioned my office furniture did.
But I home office — like more and more workers out there — so now the ergonomics of our home office space is up to us.
You can spend a lot of money on desks and chairs and ‘strategery’ your layout, but some spine czars say simple things like putting a pillow behind your back can make a big difference.
My favorite piece of advice?
Put a book on your head. Your body automatically aligns itself to maintain balance. I’ve tried this one, and it works — on me, a little too well.
You see, my head is really flat. I can slump and the book stays.
(That’s why I like this method so much.)
