Valerie is a 42-year-old, single, Reformed Christian lady who lives in Baltimore. She doesn't remember a time
before she knew and loved Jesus, but she does remember accepting John Calvin into her heart in March of 2000.
Valerie is a member of Christ Reformed Evangelical Church in Annapolis.
Though her career aspiration is to be a housewife, Valerie has not yet found anyone suitable who wishes to hire
her for employment in that field (or, more properly, anyone suitable has not found her), so in the meantime she
earns her daily bread working in communications -- editing, writing, print design and website management.
Air Conditioning Outage: The Ugly, the Bad and the Good
The Ugly: My brother's power was out when he got home from running errands on Saturday. And he doesn't even have a car that would allow him to easily escape the heat. To him I proffer a virtual stay here.
The Bad: Abra and Ben's a/c was dead this weekend, but they were able to seek relief in the homes and pools of others.
The Good: The a/c was out at work yesterday, and our department manager let us all work from home. I'd be content for the a/c to be out at work every day if it meant not having to go there!

Come to Oregon! It's snowing right now (7:26 a.m.) and we have three logs on the wood stove.

Whatever scale of "livability" they were using apparently didn't include the question of whether people really like freezing their tails off in the dark six months a year. I don't remember the details, but when I read it, my impression from the source (which I don't recall) was that it was probably mainly keyed to government-funded social welfare and education matters.
