Thanks to all y'all for your wonderful support!!
Yesterday I attended a meeting with our local 'Occupy' movement. It's alive and well and under new management -- a good thing. Somehow my name fell through the cracks but I was welcomed warmly. One of the chairpersons, after I offered an observation, said, "I want you on my committee! I like your ideas!" I was, of course, flattered. Then again, I have been involved with many different volunteer, social and political groups over the years and I'd like to think that I learned something from my experiences and can contribute to it's success. I think that I'm going to enjoy this -- it's a diverse group and us elders are well-represented. I have a feeling I'm gonna be a busy old gal.

* I love Martin Bashir. I could listen to his voice and logical observations for hours. Here he is quoting the late, great C.S. Lewis (another of my favorites) for good thinking on being a Christian. It's definitely food for thought. And if y'all are wondering about Mr. Bashir's faith, he calls himself a committed Christian and I have no reason to doubt him given his sane views on the world.
* Here's a pertinent question:
* And Van Jones offers an excellent statement that really lays it on the line. I couldn't agree with him more.
* Here's the best quote around on birth control:
And last, but certainly never least, here's 1:38 minutes of sanity from Bill Maher:
Hope y'all are having a great day!!!!!!
