I read

Text is about repair cafes and Link is http://www.nytimes.com/2012/05/09/world/europe/amsterdam-tries-to-change-culture-with-repair-cafes.html?_r=2&pagewanted=all
about repair cafes in the New York Times last week. A space, a group of people who are willing to take a whack at fixing things, other people that bring non-working stuff, along with coffee, tea, and cookies. Intriguing idea, I wonder if we can start something like this in our neighborhood. We have a lot of coffee shops that run trivia nights, craft nights, and other events.

Our biggest repair coup couldn't have happened in a repair cafe. DH replaced the belt on the washer about 5 years ago - still running well.

Today the trainer looked terrible - I was his last appointment, and I asked him to go home, I could construct a workout myself and follow it. Only 3 more additional visits to complete that 555.

    Disco might not be dead, but May is slowly killing it off...
    www.guardiannews.com and rollingstone.com are reporting yet another music history casualty...

    That was good of you to send the trainer on his way because he was feeling lousy - it should lead to another workout later, maybe? And there is something nice about when you have the insurance that you can construct and complete your own workout... some people honestly cannot.
