Scientists are working on a pill for loneliness

Modern life has led to greater isolation, which can fuel an array of disorders. If there are medications for social pains like depression and anxiety, why not loneliness?

RIP Trevor the 'world's loneliest duck'

Trevor, once dubbed the world's loneliest duck, has died after being attacked by dogs on the remote Pacific island he called home.

Trevor was something of a local celebrity in the tiny nation of Niue for being the only bird of his kind living on the island.

He had arrived there in 2018 - it's unclear how he got there.

Never to early to start thinking about what you want to get your old buddy Doc for Christmas.

Own A Piece of Mountaineer History!
Joe R. Pyle Complete Auction and Realty Service proudly offers for auction a once-in-lifetime opportunity to own the FIRST Mountaineer Muzzleloader ever built by local gunsmith Marvin Wotring for use by the WVU Mountaineer!
100% of the proceeds to benefit Holy Pursuit’s Dream Foundation of West Virginia.
This unique rifle will be offered at auction during the 2019 Bob Huggins Fish Fry in Morgantown, WV. This platform is for absentee bidding only.
The live Auction Event will take place during the festivities of the Bob Huggins Fish Fry on February 1, 2019 at Mylan Park Event Center located at 111 Mylan Park Ln, Morgantown, WV 26501.
To attend the Fish Fry, guests will be required to purchase a ticket.
The rifle is built in the Pennsylvania Longrifle style and features WVU themed accents. It was built in 1977-1978 and issued to the WVU Mountaineer in 1978. It was carried by EIGHT Mountaineer mascots over a period of 7 years. It was returned to Mr. Wotring for repairs after an unfortunate incident and later donated by Mr. Wortring to the Holy Pursuit’s Dream Foundation with the understanding that any proceeds from its sale would benefit the children the Foundation blesses.
The rifle will be available for preview and inspection prior to the February 1st auction by appointment only.

That would be a beautiful piece to own that's for sure Doc. But, just a bit too much to justify to the wife.... :lol:

Our sunshine tax is paying off this week in SoCal. I thought that I was getting a little sunburn today sitting in my car for half an hour picking up my daughter at school today. I think it was 68, a few days ago it hit 81.
I was out in shorts and tshirt at dusk tonight changing my wife's car spare tire back to her patched original tire. I just went to take the trash out at 800 pm, and it felt like high 50's.

It doesn't... depends on the water-antifreeze mix. New cars are prepped to -25 up here.
