The LiveJournal Advisory Board election is underway, closing on Thursday; here's a posting linking to all the candidates' positions - and there's this posting for a potted version of their fannishness. =:) Anyone whose account was created before March 11 2008 can vote - it's not only open to paid users - and the poll involves giving your first, second, and third choices.

Pet owners could also ask for the fair market value of their deceased pets, if that is higher than the costs incurred. Owners who do not have documentation of their expenses can get up to $900 each."
Not something you see around often: Vietnamese teas and coffees, including artichoke tea.
