How many days this year do you think it has been over 100 degrees? (It has been over 100 degrees 11 days this year.)

Minnesota is absolutely lovely this time of year. Mid 80s. Though we did have two 100+ degree days last week.

When online friends die: a goodbye to Multidisciplinary

What terrible news. I'm traveling in China now so I'm only now learning the news. What a sad thing to see when logging into LJWorld for the first time in several days.

Multi was always a huge help to me in knowing the ins and outs of the LJ comments, from long before I arrived on the scene. We've stayed in touch since I left and her comments were always appreciated. My favorite Multi story, though, is the time that she sent me a Free State Brewery gift certificate. I'd had a particularly challenging work week, both with comments and regular-old-work stuff, and had posted something about it to Twitter. Multi saw it and took it on herself to send me $20 to the brewery. The food and beer I had, courtesy of Multi, was oh so sweet.

Multi was one of the good once. God rest her soul.

City says it underbilled two Lawrence golf courses by $325,000, seeks settlement

When I lived in Lawrence, Black Hills Energy failed to bill me for any actual gas usage one winter. But I kept getting a bill with customer charges and fees and whatnot, so I didn't notice at first. Probably should have realized it sooner, but I was a college kid at the time. When I did notice, I let them know and wound up getting a bill for about $300 in back gas bills. Black Hills was "gracious" enough to let me pay that over six months without penalty. That wasn't my fault, but Black Hills expected me to pay if I wanted to continue getting gas from them. I assure you — I did.

Long-time Lawrence police sergeant retiring

As the J-W editor overseeing the midnight shift reporters for a while, I always appreciated the way Sgt. Hadl worked with our reporters, who were often young and still learning the tricks of the trade. While I never met her on the streets, I know her reputation, and it was outstanding. I'm sure Lawrence is going to miss having Sgt. Hadl on the streets.

Social privacy roundtable: A recap

Thanks for posting this, Jessica. I should note that this is the text of the recommendations I submitted to APME and the LJWorld. So, when I say something wasn't germane, that's in that context, and not necessarily in the context of the blog.

If you have any questions or feedback, please feel free to get in touch with me. You can message me at jkealing {at} gmail {dot} com.

What living person would you put on a postage stamp?

Me? On a stamp? You're going to make me blush!
