From Peggy....

In memory of family and friends who have lost the battle with cancer; and in support of the ones who continue to conquer it! Post this on your LJ if you know someone who has or had cancer. 93% won't copy and paste this. Will you?

I miss you Dad.  A day doesn't go by when I don't think of you. I love you.

Today I said good bye to an old friend.  She came to me a little over 15yrs ago and has been by my side ever since.  A road trip wasn't a road trip without her in the passenger seat. We've laughed toghether, cried together, rejoiced and mourned together.  I miss my friend.  I miss her so much.

Today a gunman - a 20 yr old man - killed 6 people and wounded several others.  His target was an Arizona politican.  Not long ago her opponents held a fund raiser.  The fundraiser - "Republican challenger Jesse Kelly held fundraisers where he urged supporters to help remove Giffords from office by joining him to shoot a fully loaded M-16 rifle. Kelly is a former Marine who served in Iraq and was pictured on his website in military gear holding his automatic weapon and promoting the event.

'I don't see the 'connection,' between the fundraisers featuring weapons and Saturday's shooting', said John Ellinwood, Kelly's spokesman."

Really?  Really, sir, you don't see any connection?

When will people understand that violence begets violence.

LJ ads

I  keep getting this screen that tells me I'll be returned to LJ as soon as the ad is done.  I immediately click the little 'x' and am sent directly to LJ.  Do they really think anyone doesn't click the 'x' and instead opts to watch their annoying ad?  Really?

I have a date tonight.  Well... not really sure it's a "date".  I'm having dinner with a woman I was introduced to by a mutual friend who thinks we would get along...  Is that a date?

Wow.  It's hard to believe it's been nearly two years since I posted.  On the other hand... it feels like a life time ago.

Happy new year everyone. I don't know what the future holds - but here's to a kickass 2011.

Yes, we can. Yes, we will.

I just finished watching the inauguration of Barack Obama.  I am once again proud to be an American.  Once again I have hope for the future of this country and the world.

All in a day?

It's interesting how quickly life can change, you know?  Today, no this afternoon, I found out I no longer have job.   I'm not sure how I feel about it.   I'm kind of okay and a little bit panicked.  Good thing I have a van I guess, right?

Life is about to get very very interesting.
