This weblog uses Moveable Type, which was developed by Mena of dollarshort.org fame, and her charming husband Ben. It is a reliable and fast system, a joy to use for me and everyone else I know who uses it. I think it is Mena’s second-best idea ever. It has changed my life for the better.
Mena’s idea that changed my life for the even more better – I mean, really changed the way my entire family conducts their daily life – was in a post that she made a long time ago and which I will not take the time to find. The idea in the post was simply to keep energy bars or granola bars in your car. Eat one of those when you get hungry (and cranky) and it stabilizes your blood sugar and your mood.
I also keep bottled water in my car. I’m not kidding, try it, if you don’t already do this. It has greatly increased family harmony during commutes and other car rides. So, thank you Mena for two good things.
