Ah, love, let us be true To one another! for the world, which seems To lie before us like a land of dreams, So various, so beautiful, so new, Hath really neither joy, nor love, nor light, Nor certitude, nor peace, nor help for pain; And we are here as on a darkling plain Swept with confused alarms of struggle and flight, Where ignorant armies clash by night.

History  furnishes no example of a priest-ridden people maintaining a free civil government. This marks the lowest grade of ignorance, of which their civil as well as religious leaders will always avail themselves for their own purposes. T. Jefferson

I was watching MSNBC a little after 2AM, when they made the announcement that Barack Obama won this year's Nobel Peace Prize--I was surprised, really, but when I heard the committee's rationale, I understood. What an amazing honor!

|My First Scanner Photo
My computer is very old, almost 8 years old, and it is running on fumes. That is one reason why I've never tried to use the scanner before, but here is a family photo, taken last Father's Day and it worked!
I'm second from the right, Kevin is second from the left--( Collapse )

|Le Coeur de Valentin
I always buy a box of candy hearts, about a month before Valentine's Day. Then, I periodically slip one into Kevin's lunch, as a surprise. Romantic, and inexpensive, too.
So, I didn't resist this "quiz"--
|Your Candy Heart Says "Hug Me"|
A total sweetheart, you always have a lot of love to give out.
Your heart is open to where ever love takes you!
Your ideal Valentine's Day date: a surprise romantic evening that you've planned out
Your flirting style: lots of listening and talking
What turns you off: fighting and conflict
Why you're hot: you're fearless about falling in love

My horoscope via ravengirl Today, July 21
If you're not happy with what's happening, do something about it. Be discreet, but don't be shy. Be diplomatic but don't apologise for yourself. Be gentle but don't be a pushover. Be determined but don't be angry. If you remain calm and reasonable, kind and sensitive, polite and pleasant you will manage to push forward the agenda that means most to you - regardless of who now seems to be standing in the way of this. Don't underestimate the full extent of your power and influence. It's impressive
I want to write a letter to my Republican Congressman, Dave Reichert, so I should follow this advice. Tis difficult when all I'd LIKE to do is scream and swear! :)

|Is "over 45" really THAT old?
Rolling Stones are old, but their Super Bowl halftime audience can't be
DETROIT — Mick Jagger and his bandmates may be nearing senior citizenship, but Super Bowl planners only want people 45 and younger to take the field during the Rolling Stones' halftime show.
The NFL is offering 2,000 people a chance to watch the Stones play during the Feb. 5 extravaganza. They will be expected to dance, sing and cheer.
"This is a once-in-a-lifetime chance to experience the Super Bowl from a totally unique perspective," NFL spokesman Brian McCarthy told The Detroit News.
People are asked to apply in groups of 20 or more and be at least 18 years old and no older than 45. Signup is under way on the Web site of Star Flow Entertainment, the company organizing the volunteers.
The NFL says the reason for the age cutoff is that the job is physically challenging. Volunteers must enter and exit the field quickly and be on their feet for long periods. They will not have seats and will wait in a tunnel under Ford Field for most of the first half.
Participants also must attend up to five rehearsals that could last seven hours each.
"You have to attend rehearsal and be able to stand for long stretches of time," McCarthy told the Detroit Free Press. "And you have to run onto Ford Field with 2,000 other folks."
I particularly thought of serendipity
when I heard this news item on the radio today--I knew she wouldn't be pleased!

|It's only a billion--
I saw this in the Adventure Journalist weblog, written by Tonya Poole. I thought it made an interesting point----
An interesting perspective for those who may never have sat down to think about it before. Original source unknown.
The next time you hear a politician use the word "billion," casually,
think about whether or not you want the politician spending your tax
A billion is a difficult number to comprehend, but one advertising
agency did a good job of putting that figure into perspective in one
of its releases.
a. A billion seconds ago it was 1959.
b. A billion minutes ago Jesus was alive.
c. A billion hours ago our ancestors were living in the Stone Age.
d. A billion days ago no-one walked on two feet on earth.
e. A billion dollars ago was only 8 hours and 20 minutes, at the rate
our government spends it.
