#2 - Another friend asked if I wanted to stay at the camper cabins sometime in a new Dakota County park. I usually would prefer to be in a tent, however these camper cabins look gorgeous! And there are ski and snowshoeing trails right outside so winter excursions are just as appealing. Well done Dakota County!
#3 - I had my cholesterol checked for the first time. I got the results which I don't know anything about. My friend looked at them and said they are "really good".
#4 - The country that most closely rivals the U.S. for incarceration rates is North Korea (though that statistic is hard to ascertain).
If you point a finger at someone else you have three fingers pointing back, right? Well, for all the negative talk about that country, maybe this information could be clarifying, motivating, enlightening?
#5 - Also I read/skimmed a horrible NYTimes article today.
Animal Welfare at Risk in Experiments for Meat Industry
The reason I came upon this article is that Cory Booker (New Jersey Senator) says he's going to look into it
and I believe him.
