Every Good Boy Does Fine Always Notes on the treble clef.

Well Always would be above the treble clef line - usually the bass clef is remembered as Good Boys Do Fine Always so maybe you’re mixing them

King Henry doesn’t usually drink cold milk - for the metric prefixes (kilo hecto deca unit deci centi milli)

Not a mnemonic (all the ones I knew are already listed) but I still sing that “50 Nifty United States” song any time I have to make a list of the states (And for those who also remember it, make sure you sing it right: New Mexico is the best)

Hey Fish, I have a question. The past week I have shortness of breath. Did tests and everything seems to be fine with my lungs and heart. Idk if it has to do with anxiety, doctors said it's a possibility. I always think a lot to myself but I never feel overly stressed about anything. Idk what to do or know what it is. Anyone ever dealt with anxiety? Can you tell me how it feels and if you had to ask for medical help? I just want to feel like my normal self again, I've been crying because of this

This has never happened in previous years. Does it mean I missed a form using H&R block or is it related to the status change…?
