The wordpress thing isn’t working out so well for me: I am too lazy to figure it out: I’m thinking about heading back to Blogger again
But in the meantime, I can’t stop playing with Wordle!
I’m back! June 1, 2008Posted by Cathy in Uncategorized.
I have 5 suitcases of dirty laundry,
661 e-mails to respond to
1000 photos to download and organize
and numerous blog friends to catch up on….
So when does the post-vacation occur?
Back but gone again… May 19, 2008Posted by Cathy in Miscellaneous.
We are off on a much needed family vacation first thing Wednesday morning. The boys will have their first plane ride and we will all relish some time focused on our love as a family (that’s the idea, anyway).
I will post loads of photos and tell you all about it upon my return on the first of June.
What’s the big deal? May 16, 2008Posted by Cathy in Rants.
Gay marriage in California is all over the news: let me think of 10,000 reasons why the media should be spending their prime time talking about anything else. Well, may 220,000 reasons if I include the people in Burma who died from Cyclone Nargis. 2 million if I include those who await long-term disaster and more suffering. Maybe 2.5 million if I include those impacted by the earthquake in Sichuan. 3 million of I include Afghanistan and Iraq…well, the numbers just swell: you get the idea.
Canada has “allowed” gay marriage for years. And you know what? Our society has not inwardly collapsed. There is something inherently wrong in a state, nation, governing body saying that anyone is “not allowed” to have any kind of basic right such as marriage. I work with a married lesbian woman. I would not be able to give her one single reason why I should have the rights associated with being legally married to the person I love but she should not. Period. There is no story in my opinion. If anything, a celebration of a legal victory but beyond that, focus is needed elsewhere. Ellen’s getting married. Front page of CNN. Distract the public, distract the public…..hmmm.
So much for my rant, then. Just as my blogging is starting to flow again, I find myself preparing for a family vacation. We’ll be leaving early next week, but I will try and get a few more posts in before then. And I promise to post lots of family vacation pictures when I return! Realy, I do want you to come back to my blog!
But for now, a sunset….
