New YouTube Fav: Home Tours!

I don’t know why I never thought to check YouTube for them, but OMG I just found out people post home tour videos there. It’s like MTV Cribs but way better!

(Speaking of history, I really hope the National Women’s History Museum becomes a reality soon, too.) Check Ordinary Women and donate!

Mortality isn’t easy to think about, maybe especially as an atheist, but being prepared and making things easier on loved ones is important, so I’m trying.
