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

We Made It
Have to be quick - we're about to go get some dinner and the Evil Genius is bouncing off the walls...but of course, the first thing I had to do when we checked in was hook up to the Net.
I am mum to a nine-year-old evil genius son (of course, I may be biased) and the clever and beautiful monkey-girl, sixteen-month-old Sprout. They and my four cats conspire to deprive me of sleep and sanity on a regular basis. I live in Redneck Central with my kids, cats, and Someone. I call our home "Casa de Crazy" for a reason. It could be because I'm nuttier than a Claxton fruitcake. I have a foul disposition and the manners of a troll. What's not to love?
