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

Good morning Miss Kyddryn!

Just had to tell you I've been combing your archives for your oatmeal recipe this morning -- found it and MMMMMMMMMM BOY! was it good. We eat a lot of oatmeal, but what a treat that was. I used dried cranberries and diced prunes for fruit. The girls lapped up every bit. Thanks!

I think you are still on your week getaway? Hope all is well, and I'll check in later --

Glad you enjoyed it! I've been home a week, writing about the event and such. Glad to see the smoke isn't interfering with your Internet, since it's messing with everything else out your way!

Also, just so's ya know, I have all the recipes linked off to the right somewhere...way down near the bottom, I think. Just to save you wading through all the posts, if that's what you did. Helpful, me.

Now that my pitiful self is in tears, I think I must channel part of my other donation money over to www.helpline.com, having known too many people who have chosen to attempt or commit suicide.

Thanks for the thoughtful link!

I look skyward and send up my thanks on a regular basis that I haven't come the such an extreme as to need them...that I had, and have, my own helpline that has been with me for decades. And I wish my young friend had known about them last month, had called them, and had lived. Any donations I make to them will be in his name, for the sake of other families that shouldn't have to know that hurt.
