But in good news, the condo president answered my email and said they've informally decided I can have a concrete ramp! They have to vote on it in the January meeting, which I put into my book so I'll go unless it snows then. I was pretty sure they would say no because they're only required to let me put in another temporary ramp, but a concrete ramp would be great! Not only would it not collect snow and freeze before the sidewalk, but the mowers can't kill it and I won't have to replace it! I need to ask around for someone to do such a small job. I think they'll have to jackhammer the two sidewalk squares and start from the ground up.
From Cute Overload, a cat cafe in Japan where people pay a bit of money to play with cats. Most folks there can't have pets, so this makes sense. It would be neat here, too, but I'm pretty sure the health folks wouldn't allow it.
I read the WashPost from the 17th last night and got halfway through the 18th and was skimming the intro to the Bookworld Young Readers page when I stalled on "every child would have ... a children's Bible..." and I thought what? Then I went back and read the entire beginning carefully and I think she's including the bible as a fable/fairy tale. What do you guys think?
