What I've learned since moving to D.C. (some of which should be obvious):

6951.  Everything you eat impacts your ability to facilitate the healing that your body craves;
6952.  To attract appropriate and healthy prosperity or abundance into your life, you need to place all of your attention on what that feels like.  You need to be able to feel what that is like even before it materializes to your satisfaction.  By feeling those pleasant sensations in your body, you reprogram your segment of the subconscious mind to harmonize with the infinitely prosperous universal subconscious mind where all manifestation originates;
6953.  Wanting to attract more prosperity into your life is equivalent to sending the message of I am not.  As long as this is your conscious thought, you are unwittingly programming your subconscious mind to offer you experiences that match your feeling.  I am not projects a state of lack;
6954.  Happiness isn’t some thing in the material world that can be acquired and stored and used when needed or wanted.  Happiness is an attitude that comes from within you.  It’s accessible when you place in your imagination an I am statement that reflects your attunement with the simple truth that happiness is indeed an inside job.  Happiness is an inner belief that you bring to everyone and everything you undertake rather than expecting your happiness to come to you from others or from your accomplishments and acquisitions.  There is no way to happiness, happiness is the way;
6955.  State your intention to live a happy, contented life; place it squarely in the most prominent place within your imagination and live from that place as if it were your reality;
6956.  Your subconscious mind handles about 96 percent of all that you undertake in your life;
6957.  You train your subconscious mind to act automatically once the conscious mind is no longer needed;
6958.  Sleep is the time when your conscious mind leaves the world of your five senses and joins in with your subconscious mind;
6959.  The last five minutes of your day before you enter into your sleep state are the most important five minutes of your day if you are going to begin living a wishes fulfilled life.  In this brief portion of your day, you are going to tell your subconscious mind how you feel and what wishes to fulfill upon awakening from your deep slumber.  This five-minute segment of time in your bed, about to enter into your subconscious and marinate for the next eight hours or so, is the most crucial segment of your entire 24-hour day;
6960.  Your subconscious mind is indifferent to what you want or what is best for you.  It cannot make a distinction between what you are feeling as a result of all that happens to you throughout your waking hours or what you feel as a result of what you are imagining for yourself as having already transpired while you are in bed preparing to doze off to sleep;
6961.  By assuming the feeling of what you don’t wish for and then going to sleep with those thoughts in your mind, you are programming your subconscious mind to take over, just as it did when you were first learning to drive.  The difference is that then you were creating what you desired and now you are using the same strategy to attract what you do not desire.  And this is why you so often fail to attract the ideal in your life;
6962.  Whatever you have in consciousness as you go to sleep is the measure of your expression in the waking two-thirds of your life on earth.  Nothing stops you from realizing your objective, save your failure to feel that you are already that which you wish to be or that you are already in possession of the thing sought.  Your subconscious gives form to your desires only when you feel your wish fulfilled;
6963.  As you lie in bed, feeling drowsy and knowing that you are about to go to sleep, where your subconscious mind is most at home, use these final pre-slumber moments to align with your source of being and become a wishes fulfilled spiritual being.  In these pre-sleep moments, you can program your subconscious mind to automatically present you with fulfilled wishes;
6964.  The feeling which comes in response to the question, “How would I feel were my wish realized?” is the feeling which should monopolize and immobilize your attention as you relax into sleep.  You must be in the consciousness of being or having that which you want to be or to have before you drop off to sleep;
6965.  If my wishes were realized, how would it feel right here right now in my body?  Stay with that thought until you begin to feel your body shift into what that feels like.  This is not an empty exercise.  It is a programming tool for re-teaching your subconscious mind to act on what you intend to manifest rather than on what you are worried, angry or fearful about.  In this semi-somnolent state, go to the I am that you are now putting into your imagination;
6966.  The natural state of your subconscious is sleep and it sees you as you believe yourself to be.  It matters not to the habitual mind of yours whether what you believe and consequently feel in your body is harmful, moral, good, bad or indifferent.  It will faithfully take on your belief and provide you with an array of experiences and seemingly synchronistic events that give form to what you believe and have placed into the programming of your subconscious mind;
6967.  You want to enter your sleep with reminders to your subconscious to automatically fulfill your life-enhancing wishes;
6968.  In reality, the subconscious is an emotionless database of stored programs, whose function is strictly concerned with reading environmental signals and engaging in hardwired behavioral programs, no questions asked, no judgments made.  The subconscious mind is a programmable “hard drive” into which our life experiences are downloaded;
6969.  Never to go to sleep with negative thoughts in your mind for they will destroy all the good you may have gained during the day;
6970.  In your dream state, you are able to create anything that you desire simply by using your powers of thought to make it happen;
6971.  All you need do is place the idea into your sleepy imagination, feel it in your body (i.e., your heart rate goes up, your breathing increases and you are feeling the joy in your smile) and voilà!  There it is.  It is all very real and all you had to do was have the thought, live from the end and feel it. Your subconscious mind, now fully connected has allowed you to participate in the true art of manifestation;
6972.  Sleep is the door through which the conscious, waking mind passes to be creatively joined to the subconscious.  Sleep conceals the creative act while the objective world reveals it.  In sleep, man impresses the subconscious with his conception of himself;
6973.  As you lie in bed preparing for your nightly slumber, remember that the last thought you have in your mind can last up to four hours in your subconscious mind.  That’s four hours of programming from just one moment of contemplation prior to going into your unconscious state.  Create a reminder like a prayer or mantra to place by your bed.  Write these words and read them as you get comfortable: I am going to use these moments to review what I intend to manifest into my life.  Keep that sign there to remind you how to spend your pre-sleep moments nightly;
6974.  “I am” the Governing Presence, governing in Perfect Divine Order, commanding Harmony, Happiness and the Presence of God’s Opulence in my mind, my home and my world;
6975.  If before dropping off to sleep you are assailed by worry, distress or fear, do not stay in bed.  Get up, turn on the light, take a few deep breaths, read from a spiritual text, meditate for a few moments in front of a white candle, say a prayer, do anything other than staying there lying down;
6976.  Stop valuing hard work for the sake of hard work;
6977.  You don’t have to be wealthy to invest, but you do have to invest to be wealthy;
6978.  Invest in yourself, invest in your mindset and invest in things that will pay you over and over again in either more time or more money;
6979.  Banks typically will not lend at less than 1.2 or 1.3 times the debt service coverage ratio (“DSCR”);
6980.  Hard costs, often referred to as “brick-and-mortar costs,” encompass the actual physical construction of real estate development.  These costs cover the material and labor that go into property development.  Some examples of material hard costs include cement, drywall, carpet and sod grass.  Labor hard costs can include things like grading, site excavation, landscaping and carpentry.  Hard costs can vary widely by market and tend to be most expensive in the northeast region of the U.S. and less so in the southeast;
6981.  Soft construction costs are fees incurred in the construction of a building that are not directly related to labor and physical building materials.  Typical soft costs include architecture, engineering, inspection and accounting fees.  Permits, taxes and legal fees also fall into the category of soft costs.  Unlike hard costs, soft costs can also include expenses that continue even after a project is completed.  This can include building and property maintenance, insurance and security among other ongoing fees related to the upkeep of an asset;
6982.  LEED certification can affect hard costs, usually contributing an additional 2% to hard construction costs and roughly $150,000.00 in soft costs depending on the scale of the project;
6983.  Hickey . . . check;
6894.  Apparently, Braden Holtby (of the Washington Capitals) is a Julie Keaten-Reed (JulieKeatenReed.com) fan;
6985.  Apparently, Devon (Grassi) (sometimes) hangs out at Don Taco in (Old Town) Alexandria with her coworkers;
6986.  On September 27th, 2018, I found out I’m going to be a dad/father. . . . I hadn’t planned on that happening. . . . I’m scared shitless;
6987.  Using the rhythm method as a form of birth control doesn’t pose any direct risks.  However, it’s considered one of the least effective forms of birth control.  How well the rhythm method works varies between couples.  In general, as many as 24 out of 100 women who use natural family planning for birth control become pregnant the first year.  Also, the rhythm method doesn’t protect you from sexually transmitted infections;
6988.  Life shrinks or expands in proportion to one’s courage;
6989.  Success can usually be measured by the number of uncomfortable conversations we are willing to have and by the number of uncomfortable actions we are willing to take;
6990.  The most fulfilled and effective people look at their life’s journey as perhaps 25 percent finding themselves and 75 percent creating themselves;
6991.  You are the author of your own life and it’s never too late to replace the stories you tell yourself and the world.  It’s never too late to begin a new chapter, add a surprise twist or change genres entirely;
6992.  What would it look like if it were easy?
6993.  Endings don’t have to be failures, especially when you choose to end a project or shut down a business. . . . Even the best gigs don’t last forever, nor should they;
6994.  The world is a book and those who do not travel read only a page;
6995.  They say a person needs just three things to be truly happy in this world: Something to do, someone to love and something to hope for;
6996.  I have no future.  I have no past.  My goal is to make the present last.  I’m right here, right now;
6997.  Don’t bring a kid to an adults-only, Patent and Trademark Office Society event;
6998.  Going to a concert with the girlfriend . . . check;
6999.  Liz Phair’s favorite venue may be the 9:30 Club in D.C.;
7000.  Your new life is going to cost you your old one;

What I've learned since moving to D.C. (some of which should be obvious):

6901.  Feeling any state you wish to achieve is the experience that impresses it on the subconscious;
6902.  The subconscious is the womb of creation.  It receives the idea unto itself through the feelings of man.  It never changes the idea received, but always gives it form;
6903.  Your feelings determine your reality because they’re impressed on the subconscious;
6904.  If you put the seed of failure into the subconscious and feed it with feeling that way, it will reproduce failure.  If you plant the seed of disease into your subconscious mind by feeling this way in your body, it will augment disease for you.  If you plant the seed of misery into your subconscious mind by feeling miserable, it will cultivate and produce misery for you;
6905.  Whatever you wish to manifest, associate a feeling of love with it and impress that feeling on the universal subconscious mind and it will do the rest;
6906.  If you seek on the outside that which you are unwilling or unable to feel on the inside, you are seeking in vain.  You attain that which you are not simply what you want;
6907.  When you choose to feel good, you are choosing to feel your highest self, the oneness that is called both good and God;
6908.  I intend to feel good, I intend to feel love;
6909.  Don’t dwell on your troubles, difficulties or illnesses.  The subconscious mind by its very nonselective nature accepts all your feelings associated with troubles as your request and, worst of all, proceeds to make them your experience in the world of your material reality;
6910.  Unexpected psychological events, such as the breakup of a marriage, a financial crisis or the death of a loved one, create reactions in the brain that trigger physical responses in the body that are designed to assist the body in dealing with the conflict.  The body continues to assist until the conflict is resolved and then it goes into a healing phase to get back to its natural state of well-being.  During this healing phase the body may utilize swelling, inflammation, fatigue and an elevated white-blood-cell count as part of the healing process;
6911.  When you experience anger, frustration, fear, doubt, worry, stress and so on, ramp up your love and immerse those negative feelings in a container of pure love.  Simply choose to feel good because every moment of offering love brings your little sliver of subconscious mind into harmony with the all-creating one universal subconscious mind that is defined as love;
6912.  Practice feeling a thought that you have inserted into your imagination.  Remember that a feeling is what you feel in your body as you contemplate what it is you wish to manifest or who you would like to become.  Close your eyes and experience what that feels like in your body.  Work with sensations that are not only your experience of what you are imagining in your body, but are triggers that assist you in moving from a thought to a hardened physical reality;
6913.  Whatever feeling you are attempting to notice in your body regarding your wishes or desire, bathe it in love, the synonym for God.  Imagine what you want.  Imagine and feel that love as if you were now in possession of it.  Continue doing this using love until your desire actually belongs to you.  During this process remind yourself that the more love (God) you offer, the sooner desire becomes reality.  Look into your mirror fearlessly, saying, I not only love you, I am love;
6914.  The more thoughts and actions you practice around your new I am, the more the subconscious mind will react in kind until eventually it will act in generous ways out of a new habit that you’ve created.  You have the power to impress upon the subconscious mind any I am of your choosing;
6915.  Your thoughts create your reality because your thoughts determine how you respond to situations in your daily life;
6916.  Addictions of every description are vehicles that people board in order to get someplace higher, more pleasurable, more peaceful, more tuned in and turned on, etc.;
6917.  Love cures the ones who receive love and the ones who give it too.  In transcending your addictive habits, you have the opportunity to be both the giver and the receiver of love;
6918.  A craving is never just a craving.  A craving is a signal that something’s missing.  An urge to restart old, destructive habits is always, always a sign;
6919.  If you can’t seem to do what’s good for you then maybe you don’t think you deserve what’s good.  If you feel compelled to hurt yourself maybe you think you deserve to be hurt;
6920.  Perfection is the enemy of excellence;
6921.  If you’re not willing to fail sometimes then you won’t ever really stretch yourself.  You’ll stay in your comfort zone of things you can already do without error.  And if you don’t stretch yourself with an inbuilt willingness for that process to be messy and imperfect then you will never actually improve.  You have to let go of being perfect in order to embrace the path to excellence;
6922.  The (space) shuttle is really an orbiter;
6923.  Yuri Gagarin was the first human in space as well as the first human in orbit;
6924.  The SR-71 (“Blackbird”) flies faster than a bullet . . . and it can reach Mach 3.3 (i.e., 2,200 mph);
6925.  Rumor has it that the CIA procured (the) titanium for the SR-71 (program) from the Soviet Union using shell companies/corporations claiming they wanted it for pizza ovens;
6926.  The “Enola Gay” was built by the (Glenn L.) Martin Company in Omaha, Nebraska;
6927.  (Colonel) Paul Tibbets (i.e., its first pilot) named the “Enola Gay” after his mother;
6928.  The Concorde was limited to Mach 2(.04) because it was made from aluminum;
6929.  There were only 20 Concordes made;
6930.  The Concorde had a(n) cruising/operational altitude of 60,000 feet;
6931.  Sex in the bathroom at a (friend’s) birthday/house party . . . check;
6932.  The pumpkin cake roll (with cream cheese filling) at ALDI is so good;
6933.  If you have a craving for a “Kinder Bueno” chocolate bar and there aren’t any readily available, a “Knoppers” milk, hazelnut wafer is a pretty good substitute;
6934.  According to the Stock Trader’s Almanac, September is historically the worst month for both the Dow (Jones Industrial Average) and the S&P 500 (Index),
6935.  A recession is when a country experiences two consecutive quarters of negative economic growth as measured by its GDP;
6936.  Water the roots not the leaves. . . . When the roots of the tree are unstable, watering the leaves is not going to make much of a difference.  It will fall over anyway;
6937.  Our underlying programming (in our subconscious minds) affects a million little choices and decisions that all add up to us playing out the exact script of our beliefs;
6938.  Ultimately, it’s our limiting beliefs that thwart or undo our best efforts to succeed.  And that keeps us small;
6939.  If we believe that we are “not enough” just the way that we are then we will constantly be trying to fill that hole or compensate for that sense of inadequacy.  Maybe with material things.  Maybe with achievements.  Maybe by pleasing others.  There are a lot of ways we do this, all of which are doomed to fail.  Unless we heal that fundamental wound, no matter what strategies we use to compensate for it, they will never be enough.  The belief in “not enough” (just) begets more “not enough;”
6940.  Judging yourself for carrying limiting or faulty beliefs is like blaming a patient for being sick.  It doesn’t help.  What does help is to focus on healing your (deep) inner wounds and limiting beliefs;
6941.  Apparently, a “MED” BC is a base curve of 8.7 (at least for CooperVision contact lens);
6942.  Your imagination is able to do all that you ask in proportion to the degree of your attention;
6943.  All progress, all fulfillment of desire, depends upon the control and concentration of your attention;
6944.  Do not give attention to what others do or fail to do; give attention to what you do or fail to do;
6945.  When you think, choose carefully the thoughts of things you’d like to be.  The thoughts entertained in the minds of men become tomorrow’s objectified whims;
6946.  Everything that you materialize into this objectified physical reality is really nothing more than a whim, but in order to experience it as your reality, though it is but an illusion, since all is continuously changing, it must come from the subjective thoughts that you and, only you, must choose very carefully;
6947.  You want to decide to live from the end you’re wishing for, not toward an end that others have decided for you;
6948.  Your subjective attention is unrelated to what you have conditioned your subconscious mind to believe to be your reality as indicated by what your five senses so convincingly tell you;
6949.  Redirect your attention away from debates aimed at disputing or convincing an external attitude and toward placing your attention on the feeling of the wish fulfilled.  The outcome depends on your inner attitude, your subjective attention;
6950.  Develop a healthy attitude toward your highest self and, all that it beckons you to be, by redirecting a habit of being influenced by outer objective factors to trusting your ability to choose subjective attention and focusing on inner rather than outer directives;

What I've learned since moving to D.C. (some of which should be obvious):


6851.  Getting a blowjob on a (church) pew . . . check;
6852.  Sweet potatoes actually aren’t in the potato family at all.  They’re (actually) dicot(yledon)s, a family of flowering plants that also includes morning glories;
6853.  Retrain your imagination so that it accepts the idea that anything placed there isn’t for a future experience, but represents your reality, right here, right now;
6854.  By placing new “I ams” into your imagination, your future dream is a present fact;
6855.  You are creating an ideal of what you want to be and assuming that you already are that person.  This is what Neville calls the Law of Assumption and he states emphatically, “If this assumption is persisted in until it becomes your dominant feeling, the attainment of your ideal is inevitable;”
6856.  Everything you wish to manifest into your physical world must first be placed firmly in your imagination in order to grow;
6857.  To incarnate a new and greater value of yourself, you must assume that you already are what you want to be and then live by faith in this assumption;
6858.  This isn’t pretending or fooling yourself, it is inviting your spirit rather than your physical form to generate the creative essence of your reality.  It’s what it means to transform your life;
6859.  Let go of all doubt, forget about the when.  It will develop into a material fact on Divine time.  Forget about the how.  Live it inwardly;
6860.  How does it feel to realize that most of what you believe about yourself and your limitations is based on an illusion, a well-intentioned illusion handed to you by people in bodies that no longer exist in a time that has passed?  Much of your self-concept is a fiction based on beliefs that are untrue and contained no veracity when you were first exposed to them;
6861.  Live from the perspective that all things are possible, planted firmly in the depths of your imagination.  The more you believe in your own Divine nature, the more it starts to become real for you;
6862.  When you realize your own magnificence, you will only attract magnificence into your life.  If you believe in things like “like attracts like,” then the absolute best way to attract what’s best for you is to love yourself to the point where you are filled with love and will only attract to your life everything that confirms this belief about yourself.  It’s actually very simple, really;
6863.  By creating an ideal in your mind, you can identify yourself with it until you become one and the same with the ideal, thereby, transforming yourself into it;
6864.  By shifting so that you restate who you are in your imagination and choosing to live from this perspective, you will achieve that transformation;
6865.  Kane Brown’s father is African American and part Cherokee.  His mom is Caucasian;
6866.  I can say I’ve seen a virtual duet (with FaceTime) between Brad Paisley and Carrie Underwood (singing “Remind Me”);
6867.  Shenzhen produces 90 percent of the world’s electronics, has a nominal GDP of over 2.2 trillion renminbi (i.e., $330 billion U.S. dollars) and is home to over 12.5 million people;
6868.  By the end of 2017, Shenzhen had over 3 million registered businesses. . . . That’s one enterprise for every four people;
6869.  In 8 years, Shenzhen has become the first city (on the planet) to boast a 100 percent all-electric public bus fleet;
6870.  In less than 6 years, Shenzhen has doubled its economic output;
6871.  Affirm: I am love, I am God, I am worthy, I am infinite;
6872.  Affirm: I am talented, I am heroic, I am ecstatically happy, I am wealthy beyond words, I am content, I am God;
6873.  That which you feel yourself to be you are and you are given that which you are.  So assume the feeling that would be yours were you already in possession of your wish and your wish must be realized.  Live in the feeling of being the one you want to be and that you shall be;
6874.  The cycle of the creative process is first a thought, then a feeling, then a hardening into a physical object or ultimately a new volitional act;
6875.  No assumption of the feeling of the wish fulfilled, no fulfillment of your wishes;
6876.  Apparently, there’s a pickle eating scene in “Romeo & Juliet;”
6877.  I had forgotten that Romeo and Juliet were secretly married (by Friar Laurence);
6878.  Three tips to find your life purpose: 1.  What are the two qualities that you most enjoy expressing in the world? 2.  How do you most enjoy expressing these qualities in your life?  Pick your top two; and 3.  Write a description of what the world would look like if it were operating perfectly according to you. . . . Combine all three of your answers into one statement.  Use this statement as your inner guidance system.  Create a vision of what your life would look like and align your goals with your purpose;
6879.  You can lean in to the journey of living your life purpose;
6880.  Self-confidence is a result of successfully surviving a risk;
6881.  Take small risks;
6882.  Use the power of visualization;
6883.  Keep a journal of your (past) successes and regularly review them;
6884.  Everything you want is on the other side of fear;
6885.  Devote a few minutes each day to visualizing yourself achieving your goal(s);
6886.  Crinkle cut, kettle chips maybe the best chips ever;
6887.  You may have placed a picture in your imagination of who you’d like to be, but if you can’t assume the feeling of that wish fulfilled, you’ll find it impossible to make your future dream a present fact.  Yet you do have this wondrous power to take a thought that is in your imagination, live from that place in your daily life and then experience in your body exactly how that feels and stay with this feeling;
6888.  Your feelings are where you live.  If you have been able to assume the feeling within your heart and genuinely feel the love that this activity brings to you, you will be in a place where your wish must be realized such is the power of your feelings;
6889.  Every feeling makes a subconscious impression and, unless it is counteracted by a more powerful feeling of an opposite nature, must be expressed.  The dominant of two feelings is the one expressed.  I am healthy is a stronger feeling than I will be healthy.  To feel I will be is to confess I am not; I am is stronger than I am not.  What you feel you are always dominates what you feel you would like to be; therefore, to be realized, the wish must be felt as a state that is rather than a state that is not;
6890.  Sensation precedes manifestation and is the foundation upon which all manifestation rests;
6891.  A change of feeling is a change of destiny;
6892.  Your conscious mind is responsible for only 4 or 5 percent of all of your actions, including what you manifest;
6893.  Your subconscious mind, on autopilot once it has been imprinted by your conscious mind with its thoughts and ideas, runs the show that is called Your Life.  It accounts for some 96 percent or more of everything you do and everything you attract into your life;
6894.  All things, including what you desire to manifest for yourself, evolve out of your thinking/conscious mind and must then be impressed upon your subconscious mind.  Without this precise sequencing nothing will be made.  Your feelings are deeply involved in this sequence;
6895.  Ideas are impressed on the subconscious through the medium of feeling.  No idea can be impressed on the subconscious mind until it is felt, but once felt, be it good, bad or indifferent, it must be expressed.  Feeling is the one and only medium through which ideas are conveyed to the subconscious;
6896.  The strange and wonderful thing about your subconscious mind is that it always accepts as true what you feel to be true.  The key words here are feel to be true.  Your feelings allow your subconscious mind to spring into action;
6897.  Spiritual understanding differs in that it requires experiencing it.  The way to understand something spiritually is through experiencing it.  Your feelings are the tools you have for experiencing your subconscious mind and making it your material world reality;
6898.  Your feelings happen in your body, where you live and breathe.  How you feel is your experience of life.  These feelings flow from the thoughts you place in your imagination and you are free to select any thought you desire;
6899.  Because your feelings, especially the feeling of love, are impressed on your subconscious mind, which is responsible for virtually everything that you do, experience and manifest in your life, your mission is to get to that place of assuming the feeling of the wish fulfilled, even if the wish has yet to materialize in your physical reality;
6900.  You want to keep tabs on what feelings you are associating with the wishes you have placed in your imagination because whatever they are, you will see the universe aligning with them to provide experiences that match up with what you have impressed upon this universal subconscious mind;

What I've learned since moving to D.C. (some of which should be obvious):

6801.  My muscles and back are so relaxed after a meditation retreat;
6802.  Apparently, I’m (very) sensitive to drugs;
6803.  I do love myself;
6804.  If you have the power to make someone happy, do it.  The world needs more of that;
6805.  (Do) boyfriend/girlfriend frame for an hour (and) then pull her/take her home;
6806.  Any girl (in the club) who isn’t watching the deejay when he comes on is there (looking) to bang/hook up;
6807.  Don’t (ever) update your (laptop’s) BIOS (. . . just don’t do it);
6808.  Elizabeth likes anchovies;
6809.  Elizabeth likes Eggs Benedict;
6810.  Elizabeth likes crème brulée;
6811.  The “Black Out: Silhouettes Then and Now” and the “Trevor Paglen: Sites Unseen” exhibitions at the Smithsonian American Art Museum (in Chinatown) are pretty cool and worth checking out;
6812.  Apparently, Elizabeth used to date Jackson Landers, the “Locavore Hunter.”  He was on an episode of “Bizarre Foods” with Andrew Zimmern;
6813.  (Satin) tablecloth . . . check . . . anal cowgirl . . . (double) check;
6814.  If you need your glasses fixed, take them to Voorthuis Opticians (Voorthuis.com) in (Old Town) Alexandria.  They’ll fix them for free (. . . but you might want to tip them);
6815.  Don’t (ever) drink an extra-large Slurpee all at once in one sitting (. . . just don’t);
6816.  The spoils ultimately go to those few who not only chose to do the mental, physical and emotional work, but actually “do” the work consistently;
6817.  The biggest lies we tell in life are the ones we tell ourselves;
6818.  Belief without action means nothing;
