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

Yes, Yes, Another Video

I was out running erands yesterday and put the iPod on Gordon Lightfoot, 'cause I dig him and like to sing along (when I can make out what the heck he's mumbling - my diction teacher would have had a field day with him!). One of the lyrics to the song below caught my ear...

"Deep in the dark of a burned out soul, there's a few good second-hand dreams..."


What're you listening to, today?

I'm listening to the new drum set that Jack just bought himself with his savings. God.Help.Me.

Seriously, I "gave" each of my children the song, "To Make You Feel My Love," by Adele. (It's a cover of Bob Dylan's song). I had each of them put it on their ipod, acknowledge that it was OUR song and asked them to please ask permission if they wanted to give it to someone in the future. For some reason it's just full of emotion for me and the words? Say exactly how I feel about my bebies...tears every time.
