The negative review person is insane, and probably driven even more so through the second half of this episode. I hear nothing the entire time. I assume that's a pug. ❤

I once worked for a company that defined business casual as "a collared shirt" ...even for women!!! Myself and some co-workers decided to find the most ridiculous collared shirts we could to "comply" with the dress code. This included 70s butterfly collars, clown costumes, etc. 😁

Hearing about Kitty's story makes me feel so ashamed/embarrassed for ever complaining about anything! -Her accomplishments far exceed that of most who HAVE arms; let alone she had no help from either another person NOR any prosthetics & STILL not only managed but excelled--ALL during an age when women had none to little opportunity for much more than poppin' out babies while ironing their husbands' shirts. -(WHY am I too lazy to change out of PJ's or comb my hair before going grocery shopping? And WHY is EVERYONE ELSE there in their PJ's with dirty, messy hair?)

To clarify, Radium doesn't glow, it just gives off radiation. The clocks and watches glowed because they mixed the radium with phosphorus based paint. it is essentially the same glow-in-the dark paint we use today. The radiation makes the paint glow as though you are shining a light on it.

you scared me so bad with that "I messed up" noise because we're currently listening while driving in a standard jeep and you made it right as my dad shifted gears and it sounded like it was grinding and I started laughing so hard
