This is the book I was looking for when I picked up Gandhi’s Autobiography: The Story of My Experiments with Truth, in which the Mahatma provided his personal perspective. I wanted to know the man for his greatness, and Vincent provided me the introduction I sought. Having read both, I feel anyone who has read a biography of Gandhi should read his Experiments with Truth, for it is only with these two perspectives that I begin to appreciate the depth, the simplicity, and the goodness of this man.

Today I submitted the following two recipes for an upcoming cookbook from the Alumni Association of National University of Health Sciences.
Whole Wheat Pancakes or Waffles
Modified from Linda Carroll
1 1/2 c. Whole wheat flour
1 Tbsp. Baking powder
1/2 tsp. Salt
1/2 c. Dry powdered milk
2 Eggs, beaten
2 Tbsp. Vegetable oil
2 Tbsp. Applesauce
1 1/2 to 2 c. Water
1/2 c. Wheat germ (optional)
Optional mix-ins for flavor:
1/4 c. Fruit (Berries, Apples, Raisins, etc.)
1 Tsbp. Cinnamon or similar spices
Stir dry ingredients in large bowl; add liquid ingredients. Add water gradually for proper consistency. For waffles, bake in preheated, greased waffle iron about 4 minutes. For pancakes, cook on hot greased griddle. Makes about 4 servings. (Dry ingredients may be prepared ahead as a mix.)
Time Required: 30-45 minutes
My mother made waffles for her family of 10 children every Saturday when I was a child. (She would make 4 times the recipe) Now, I carry on the tradition and make Saturday morning pancakes for my small family. Enjoy!
Dinner in a Pumpkin
From Hyrum Carroll
1 small to medium Pumpkin
1 Tbsp. Vegetable oil

The latest Gmail compose
lacks highlighting altogether combines the text color and the highlight (background) color into a single button. I guess it was only used to emphasize the emotions of LOL cats. Shrug. Not a killer feature, and I’m glad I’ll never click on the wrong one button again; despite being a regular Gmail user since 2004, I would click the wrong text color / highlight color about 40% of the time.
Apparently, this feature was troublesome to implement; I’m glad it’s in the bit bucket… for now.

false claims and corrections, above.
Eight months ago, I failed a midterm examination worth 50% of my grade. While I did better on the final examination, I did not pass the class. As a result, my plans for graduation were postponed by one semester so that I could retake the course. Thankfully, I earned a ‘B’ on the second pass. Today I took the midterm of another course from the same instructor. Based on my performance during the exam, there is a substantial possibility that I failed this exam.
The possibility of retaking a second course from the same instructor and delaying graduation yet another four months is terrifying. It strikes not only at my finances and future plans, but also at my sense of self-worth. When I was a child, I derived much of my worth from the approbation of others–especially my school teachers–and my academic success. Today I know that my worth is inherent and intrinsic, and that it comes from God. My hope of salvation depends on my faithfulness and obedience, not on any worldly success.
Further, as I was reminded yesterday by a trusted mentor, “It’s not about me.” I’m here to learn and to prepare to serve my patients and provide for my family. It’s not about me.
Finally, I am glad that, during this trial, I was able to control my emotions and avoid transference of the stress to others.
If you are struggling with feelings of worthlessness, I encourage you to pray and ask God, “Lovest Thou me?” I know that He will answer your sincere prayer. He has answered my prayer, and since He is no respecter of persons, and since He is the same yesterday, today, and forever, I know that He will treat you with the same kindness and concern. You are His child. Great is your worth, incredible is your potential. In the name of Jesus Christ, Amen.
Yeah, it worked for me for some terms the day I downloaded it; when I went back for more, I got the same result: terms listed, without definitions. I have no idea what changed.
If the original author will please step forward, I’m sure we could get to the bottom of it. I suspect the file is somehow illegitimate. Why else is it hosted on mediafire and doesn’t show up with common search queries?
Sadly, it appears that all free medical dictionaries for Mac today are either simple word lists for spell checking only, or are web-based, often ad-supported. Windows and Google Chrome and Handheld (Palm, PocketPC) options exist, but nothing that integrates with the Dictionary.app on Mac OS X.
A truly free medical dictionary would be great; once the content is created, then making a dictionary compatible with Apple’s Dictionary.app would be trivial. Until then, I guess $50 or $55 is a reasonable price … if it fits with your current digital workflow.
