It's getting on to two years since John died.

There've been some changes in my life recently that I like to think would have made him happy for me. One was the adoption of Ferdinand, my wee kitten. The other was moving to Poplarville and getting a house. (I really have to get those pictures up on this journal.)

I like to think that he'd come up and help with the cleaning and make it funny and joke a lot, cause that's how he was. He'd also know all the secrets to getting a kitten trained to not treat your fingers as toys. Then we'd go to the BBQ place here in town and gorge ourselves silly on the best BBQ in the area.

I like thinking that it would be pleasing to him that his little sister was having a good life and was happy. Even if the hall bathroom should be condemned for health violations. (He'd probably paint a biohazard sign on the door, knowing him.)

I still notice shopping buggies in random places because of him.

Pain is mostly gone. Sore, but not sharp. It will probably never go away.

Why this piece is awesome: I love the dreamy, mystical atmosphere of this work. It fits so well with how Lewis describes the place in the book. I also love the misty light and the way reflecting it makes the pools glow. It's one of the most evocative depictions I've seen of the Wood.

I love this moment.  I love it, because Agent Carter she is historically accurate.

American servicemen serving in the UK were issued pamphlets reminding them that the UK women had been in that war longer than the Americans had and deserved their respect:

A British woman officer or non-commissioned officer can and often does give orders to a male private. The men obey smartly and know it is no shame. For British women have proven themselves in this war. They have stuck to their posts near burning ammunition dumps, delivered messages afoot after their motorcycles have been blasted from under them. They have pulled aviators from burning planes. They have died at the gun posts and as they fell another girl has stepped directly into the position and “carried on.” There is not a single record in this war of any British woman in uniformed service quitting her post or failing in her duty under fire.

Now you understand why British soldiers respect the women in uniform. They have won the right to the utmost respect. When you see a girl in khaki or air-force blue with a bit of ribbon on her tunic - remember she didn’t get it for knitting more socks than anyone else in Ipswitch.

No wonder she decks him. And no wonder his boss believes he deserves it.

This is mostly a line-by-line search-and-replace, but return values
were changed in a few places where it made sense to do so.

[#972] update rename.css: remove unneeded code, add needed styling

Removed two style lines that appeared to duplicate the default
Foundation styling, and moved another line that only affected
one page into the style header tag for that page.

Also added styling for p.note, used in rename.tt and admin/rename_edit.tt,
which displays text slightly smaller and in an italic font.

[#972] convert rename-related pages to Foundation

This covers the 4 pages that were affected by the error-handling
changes, 3 of which used rename.css for styling. The remaining
style rules covered font sizing and padding, and were retained
in pages/rename.scss.

Fixes #972.

[#972] convert admin/rename.tt to Foundation

This adds Foundation styling to admin/rename.tt, which used
neither error-handling nor custom styling, but was the only
other rename-related page template.

Includes additional in-page styling for the input field, so that it
doesn't take up the entire width of the page, and adds paragraph
tags around the link to /rename/new.

[#1504] close label tags to avoid text focus issues in Safari

Two label tags were unclosed, leading to JS focus problems in Safari.

Closing the labels caused them to add line breaks. Added in-page
"display: inline" styling to keep the line unbroken.

Fixes #1504.
