Instead of vowing to honor and obey each other, we should swear to aid and abet each other. So, take off your silver spurs and help me pass the time.

May all your storms be weathered, And all that’s good get better.

To my husband…it’s always my husband.
You’ll enjoy this one. Boids is a clever, poignant, heartfelt mash-up packed with real-life subtleties and twisty moments. It is an example of writing for the internet that is borrowing much from screenwriting. At its heart here is classic quirk, sass, irreverence snark, and blues calling out to you. There are footprints in here of math, sex, intoxication, politics, religion, love, art, friendship, life, career, marriage, betrayal, networks, blogging, tragedy, success, vows, tolerance, discourse, integrity, flaming, music, humanity, panic, children, compassion, drugs, business, community, but not the ways you might obviously think. More like moving back and forth between a sensuous and charming very hot bubble bath or hot shower of enthralling feelings, and an ice storm on your chest savagely pushing you back or sideways as you wearily still move forward. Still alive. Still living life to the fullest in classic quirk, sass, irreverence snark, and blues fashion. Read on.

Grace Jones – Storm You'll forget about the night Physicist Albert-Laszlo Barabasi and his colleagues at the University of Notre Dame in Indiana in 1998 yielded a connectivity map that they christened "scale-free. These simple but enormously powerful discoveries have implications well beyond the internet." Barabasi and his team had been doing work that modeled surfaces in terms of fractals.ru/dic. Page 10 of 38 . A clustering coefficient of 0. P(k)=ck-α. It's worth pointing out that nodes of a scalefree network aren't randomly or evenly. A common property of many large networks. but also how easy it is to be self-centered and miss to your detriment those complications in everyone else’s lives. those forces to acknowledge not only how complicated your own lives are. including the internet.
