Stories

Sima had a small operation last Friday, out-patient, but she stayed there one night. The first few days of recovery was painful, but everything went well and she is 95% recovered now.

I had an accident yesterday (Friday). A school bus backed up and went over my car's hood. The driver denied that she backed up once police arrived at the scene. We may have to go to court.

This morning (Saturday) I took the car to the insurance place for evaluating the damage. On my way back I heard a couple of stories on NPR that caught my interest:

1- Story of Zoe Strauss photography and her art works on billboards of Philadelphia:

2- Story of a book by Philip Broughton, "The Art of the Sale.'' I specially liked the interview with the author.

PS. On buying happiness, a TED talk by Michael Norton:
