Quote of the day...er...week...umm...hey, look, a quote!!

Tibi gratias agimus quod nihil fumas.

It says "...freedom of...", not "...freedom from...".

Nolite te bastardes carburundorum!

"It's amazing to me how many people think that voting to have the government give poor people money is compassion. Helping poor and suffering people is compassion. Voting for our government to use guns to give money to help poor and suffering people is immoral self-righteous bullying laziness. People need to be fed, medicated, educated, clothed, and sheltered, and if we're compassionate we'll help them, but you get no moral credit for forcing other people to do what you think is right. There is great joy in helping people, but no joy in doing it at gunpoint." - Penn Jillette

Below are some pictures of the Ent at the Ren Faire yeasterday. They don't do the costume justice. At one point, he was standing very still and some kids were examining him - he suddenly moved his head and peered down at them, and they squealed and ran away. The adults in the area chuckled.

I let the Evil Genius put a dollar in the gourd - it's usual to tip the characters at the faire for providing entertainment, and this fellow certainly deserved it!
If you look carefully at the first picture, you'll see his face.

As a little side note - it's almost two-o'clock, and I started writing this around eleven-thirty. Betweem making breakfast for the household (bacon and pancakes, yay for clogged arteries!) and Blogger having a conniption about uploading pictures, it took this long to write this tiny post. Sigh. I'm going for a nap, now.

What a cool Ent!

The people look... um... different where you are. Oh wait, it must be the bare arms and legs! ;)
