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

Geography Lesson

The Evil Genius and Someone have discovered another common interest - maps. Specifically, Atlases. Bird decided he wanted to pore over Someone's Atlas before bedtime last night.

They browsed world maps...

Talked about topographical maps...

Checked out detailed maps of several nations...

And even looked over a map of the sea floor.

Homeschooling - anywhere, any time, there's a lesson to be learned. Sweet.

I'm glad he's learning Geography. Most kids don't and probably couldn't find their own town or city on a map. Some don't even know what state they live in!

Now all he needs is to learn how to use a compass the right way!
