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

Hey, I recognize those leaves. They sure are purty. Wonder if they'll ever leave the tree they cling so tenaciously to.

Oooh! Pretty pinwheels!

Nice...very nice!

Mum, they're usually among the last to go, as the tree is in such a sheltered spot. Did your leaf survive the trip home? I can't wait to see the copper one you make...

Susan, cool - I didn't notice the pinwheelesque quality!

Mister Hermit, sir, thanks!
