Sorry I've been MIA. The stress of Congress' inane antics and assorted nonsense here at home, frayed my last nerve and a break was necessary. I did try to keep up on y'all and if I missed anyone, it was a sin of omission not commission. I'm probably gonna be slow on this for couple days -- I'm still not 100% and need to sort through some stuff but I do want to stay current here in the Land of Blog and I'll do what I can when I can.
* I saw a new acronym this morning: the GOS (Great Orange Satan) and I think I like it a lot!!! What do y'all think?
* I'm glad (read: relieved) that my SS was deposited but am not happy with the deal with the GOS our representatives made. We need to remember those who want to kill us off at election time next year and kick 'em out. As it is, it's canceling any summer plans I had because I have to do my best to get some cash stashed. I'm allowed to pay my bills and eat -- albeit very frugally. No road trips; no restaurant meals/nights out; no purchases except for scrips and necessities. I also canceled my annual Hall of Fame festival party/partying this weekend -- I just don't feel well enough to cope with it all.
* Here's a video from a lovely, talented young lady who I've become friends with through the We Are Ohio campaign:
"Concerned citizens of central Ohio gathered at Senator Rob Portman's office today at noon, while the Senate was voting on the Satan Sandwich/Raw Deal budget bill on August 2nd, 2011. When even politically moderate grandmothers start talking about revolution, you know it's time for change."
