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

Tibi gratias agimus quod nihil fumas.

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

"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

He looks as if he is absolutely, totally, up to no good in there!

Happy Birthday! The box thing is so true... my daughter's favorite present from her 7th birthday was the giant box that my hubby's new printer came in. She insisted on sleeping in it! (Ack... I went in and moved her to her bed as soon as she was asleep -- I was afraid she'd suffocate in there!)

Susan, thank you. He sent along a hug for you to keep in your pocket in case of emergencies.

Rachel, I don't call him Evil Genius for nothing!

Adlibby, he has so far made a boat, a train, and a house of it, as well as a crab shell and a goal for throwing balls into. What it will be tomorrow, who can say?
