I have just found your blog somehow and have been reading through it. You have me laughing my head off at the sewing machine ads! So funny what people write about machines and what they want for them. (That sewing tractor is located not far from me.) As far as the political writings that you include, I have sent them to my husband because they sound like something he would write or forward on. We love Thomas Sowell and read his column all the time in our local paper. Wish he could be our President!
