It must be part of human condition ...

My day started good as most days usually do.  I try to choose the attitude I want to work with for a given day.  Today was going to the public library and attending critical thinkers presentation.Interesting topic on the agenda.  The genome project national geography team did - in bringing about the understanding of genetic ancestry.
