Tip of the day:

Buy produce at ethnic markets to save money. Often times veggies and fruits are much cheaper than their chain counterparts (Vons, Albertsons, etc.). Today at the local Glatt market (Jewish) I bought one white onion for $.33, at $.69 a lb. Once I bought it for $.20!

My Two Cents

A musing:

I saw this on Facebook a week or two ago (see image below) and I was disgusted. To be honest, I haven't been following the gun debate that much, but I have a handful of Facebook "friends" who are apparently gun-happy and posting gems like photos of a ton of guns with the slogan "SECOND AMENDMENT: Because one day we'll need this right to protect the rest of our rights" and "Back in  the 1950s and even later, many high schools had shooting ranges. Students even brought their own rifles. What changed in society that we could trust such activities then, but now now?"

When I saw this lil beaut, and I thought "WTF!"
Hopefully that person really doesn't think that having the right to own assault rifles is as important as having racial equality. I definitely don't see them as the same fight.

I'm not a gun person, so I don't understand the love and passion that people have for them. I get having guns in your house for protection or as a hobby for hunting, but why do you need to own some crazy ass machine gun or whatnot, especially if you have kids in the house. Parents - lock that sh*t up, so your kids can't have access to them!

Song on Repeat

I just heard this song on the radio that I actually liked (and that wasn't on KCRW):

Atlast Genius - "Trojans"

This song is from 2011, so I'm a little late to the game.

Here's a cool remix too:
