I'm thankful that I am back home, safe and sound. Good coffee, good conversation, good food. Our beautiful planet AND the squirrels at my bird feeders! (Why? because they keep all the other squirrel riff-raff away.)

Welcome back to the Northwest!

Our squirrels are bullies. They chase the birds away and dump the seed on the ground. Nathan and Linus have made slingshots...

i felt awful about prop 8. it was strange to be so happy about Obama, and so sad about prop 8.

but, comments like yours and all the wonderful people in the world who care about gay rights make it so much better.

and... to be truthful i am amazed we have come this far in 20 years. it'll happen...

Janice, I want my friends to be safe and happy and for us all to have the same rights. This is why I moved away from the South!
