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

I like to sit alone at night and look at the lights on our tree.

Colored lights are so homey, white lights elegant. Some years it's one, some years the other, and once in a while I mix them.

It isn't that I don't want to share - there's just something about sitting in an otherwise darkened room, still and quiet, remembering years past.

Sometimes I squint and lett them get blurry, nod my head from side to side.

Sometimes I focus on one bulb.

But mostly, I just...look.

Peaceful, isn't it?
