Worth repeating

(The following quote was translated into English from an article appearing in the Czech Republic as published in the Prager Zeitung of 28 April 2011).

“The danger to America is not Barack Obama but a citizenry capable of entrusting an inexperienced man like him with the Presidency.  It will be far easier to limit and undo the follies of an Obama Presidency than to restore the necessary common sense and good judgment to a depraved electorate willing to have such a man for their President.  The problem is much deeper and far more serious than Mr. Obama, who is a mere symptom of what ails America.  Blaming the Prince of the Fools should not blind anyone to the vast Confederacy of Fools that made him their prince.  The Republic can survive a Barack Obama.  It is less likely to survive the multitude of idiots such as those who made him their President.”

Ode to the Sewing Machine #18




Many of you follow my "Ode to the Sewing Machine" posts.  We've all seen the ads on craigslist, ebay and elsewhere.  The clueless sellers give those of us who sew a belly laugh, or two!

No one in their right minds would continue reading, but who says quilters are in their right minds, so here's installment #18...

Technology!!!



It is overwhelming to keep up with all the technology out there, isn't it?  I have 90+ friends on facebook, 285 followers on Twitter and 5,897 subscribers on YouTube.  

Why doesn't somebody consolidate it all into one to make it easier???  

We could call it something like....  youTwitFace.com

Sticky floors = Happy kids

My son's 13th birthday party is finished. The carpet has been cleaned of the spilled pop and ice cream. Popcorn under every piece of furniture is going to stay there a little longer because I'm going to bed!

Can I trade a teenager with anyone? Low mileage. Takes showers if faced with no Xbox time (hasn't discovered girls). Great computer skills! Loves video games. Prays for his mom! Prays for his mom... well, maybe I'll keep him around another year or two?
