@carnellm the content within the output tag contained no links. It was simply additional information about the deal that was curated including location and information on the business associated with the deal. As far as I saw, and I didn't examine every hidden field by any means, there were no links back to the publisher. That's why I don't want to make aspersions on the publisher's intent. I am not sure in this case. In other cases, I can see this <output> tag being abused by others quite easily.

I'm a big TWiT network fan. When I'm on a podcast kick, I'll generally catch This Week in Google, Tech News Today, and All About Android (yes, I'm one of those. . .)

When I'm driving, I'll often give the How Stuff Works network a listen, I tend to dig Stuff You Should Know, Stuff to Blow Your Mind and Missed in History. 

Grammar Girl is another one I enjoy. 

Looking over this, I think I may spend a bit too much time alone.

@KeterMagick like I told @momofbouys since I live in such a humid area, I can't give you a good review on its anti-static properties. We usually don't have any static until maybe, maybe January and at that point it's such a novelty I fold in the dark to watch the show. :P

@momofbouvs I live in a very humid area (the Lowcountry of SC) so I really can't give you much of a review on static. I did wash a few comforters yesterday and those will occasionally crackle and snap out of the dryer and I didn't observe any.

@KadeeHolman I do not believe so, the scent and softener respond to the heat of the dryer. You can compromise and do a 15 minute tumble which will soften your clothes and keep your electrical usage fairly low.

@MelissaTurnerJones yep we are ALL busy in our own way, it's part season of life, part our culture (and part our choices). My kids were 4, 2, and newborn that first year here, then came 3 years of homeschooling, and now we're just about to hit 9, 7, 5 with the last birthday next week and really, I can tell you, it gets better. You'll be busy, but it won't be the same focus on the input and output of each kid, which I find relieving.

Are you kidding? I <3 King of the Hill (That boy ain't right, is a frequent refrain around here) and I grew up on The Simpsons. Now I have to seek out Adventure Time.

@JessicaRWebb not only that, but I was plenty lonely when it was just the kids and me. I love my kids, but adult interaction with actual friends staves off the loneliness (at least for me).

I tend to think about tossing the loners and giving them "one more chance," so who knows how long some of have been on the laundry table.

@Shari thank you, that's very kind of you. It's been an adventure and there are times I'm better at it than others. . . I did hire childcare a year ago to help out, since I had a fair amount of traveling with the release of the book and a few other things. That was quite possibly the best decision I made. I felt less like I was pulled in a thousand directions. 

I am looking forward though to not having to leave the house to "find a quiet place" although I may want to from time to time just for a change of scenery.
