My Dog Won’t Eat Her Veggies

In the meantime totally ignoring the humans in the room, Nubia spit out every carrot and peas in her bowl, and happily finished her meal.  The evidence is lined up to the side of her bowl in a neat heap. She drinks her water and quickly exits the kitchen. Read more :

Mortgage Modification Conspiracy

June 2009 The New York Times ran a story stating banks and servicers are not working quickly enough to modify mortgages. Almost a year later and Orlando Local 6 is running a similar story. These banks benefit from tax money, AND operate hundreds of subsidiaries in places widely known for helping people evade taxes. One preferred among the bailout companies is the Cayman Islands.

Love Bomb~Selfless Mission

Today’s mission was suggested to us by Gaby, the founder of (one of my favorite sites on the web). Here’s what she had to say:

Hey Nate, I think this girl might be perfect for a lovebomb. She’s was a rape victim and is pregnant with the baby of rape. She’s dediced to keep it, but she’s been working extremely hard finish school and work at the same time to be able to support her kid. to She recently reached out to me and she’s desperate for help. I know tumblr doesn’t allow comments but she has a formspring and you don’t need to register to leave comments.

This is what she wrote to me:
You are the founder of givesmehope and lovegivesmehope, somewhere i have debated sending my story. i was wondering if you could help bring more of these amazing people into my life. the support and love from strangers is overwhelming, and it’s the only place i am feeling comfort.

This is her blog post:

This is her formspring:

Hope she’s a good candidate! Thanks for considering Nate 🙂

This one really touched my heart, guys. Chandler is taking an incredibly tough and scary situation and turning it into something beautiful, and she could really use some love from people who care about her enough to help her along this journey. Oh, and I know she says to aks her any questions you want in that Formspring thing, but she’s answered so many already, and she just spent the last couple days in the hospital due to complications, so let’s not bother her with questions, okay? I think she needs love and support more than more questions.

You’ll have to click on the second link above to leave a comment, and please be aware that there’s a character limit on the comment box – you won’t be able to write anything very long. Sorry about that, but that’s how this one works. My suggestion would be to decide what you really want to say, and just say that. Keep it brief. If you really want to say more, include contact info and invite her to talk.

Let’s show some love, people!


If you think this whole Love Bomb thing is a cool idea, feel free to forward this message on to anyone who may be interested. They can help us with this mission, and also sign up for any future ones here:
