This article from New Scientist says some researchers in Prague have linked being RH negative and toxoplasmosis (from cat droppings) to having a decreased response time and increased car accidents.
I have been looking for an inexpensive watch with an alarm that fits my wrist, and preferably not ugly. Good f*ing luck! I finally went to Shopko on the advice of my mother in law and found a Coleman watch on a carabiner clip that has an alarm, a backlight, stopwatch, analog hands, and a digital display, day of the week, date, blah blah blah.... and it also does 24 hour time. How great. And it was $17. Woohoo! I hate wearing watches on my wrist anyway.
I made another purse this weekend This is an enlarged version of the Buttercup Bag. I tried to follow some vague instructions I found online for enlarging the bag 130%. I had to do some trimming, but it turned out ok. I added the rust colored trim, and I like it. This was all done with fabric I had upstairs in my stash. I had JUST enough of the brown embroidered fabric. I also added heavyweight interfacing to the outside of the bag and modified the strap. I definitely think that reinforcement was necessary. The strap is sewn between the outer bag and the lining. The original pattern has it tacked to the outside.
I decided I need a new point and shoot, so we picked up a Nikon Coolpix S620 (in Noble Purple). So far I like it. It's a lot smaller than my old Sony. It will be very convenient for travel.
