Are you at a desk for six hours or more a day? Have you been concerned by the research pointing to serious health effects of sitting all day, recently confirmed again? I work at the computer much of the day, have back trouble, and don't get enough exercise as it is.

Homie Elizabeth asked us, "Any chance there could be a post about awesome lamp shades? I have been searching high and low for non-boring lampshades, and they are really hard to find." No problem!
