I am a

What Flower
Are You?

"You are just a sweet person. When a friend needs a shoulder to cry on, you are happy to offer yours with a box of tissues as well. Once in awhile, you wish you could be a little more dramatic but then sensibility sets back in and you know that you are perfect the way you are."

I don't really fit this, I don't think - certainly I'm NOT perfect! But it was a fun quiz!

Lord of the Rings

We are watching the Lord of the Rings for the 24th time. I've heard comments about Frodo and Samwise being gay. All I can say after reading the entire series a bunch of times, including most of the other, ancillary, books, is that people just don't understand deep male friendships outside of sexuality. I'm beginning to think that any deep friendships are suspect.

This was not a problem years ago, but it is now. I think it reflects the general sexualization of our society.

A shame.

Misplaced Priorities?

What is it about the media and our politicians?

We have thousands of illegal aliens crossing our borders, setting up housekeeping and sucking down resources without paying taxes themselves.

We have our military in harm's way in Afghanistan and Iraq.

Iran is threatening the free world with nuclear meltdown.

Islamic terrorists are threatening Europe and the N American continent.

And the media and politicians are obsessing over the firing of 6 non-productive federal prosecutors?

Sorry - I just don't get it.

It's as though they have all gone crazy and think the only news is inside the DC beltway. Sorry, this country is much bigger than that little island of political intrigue and sleezy scandal.

Wake up!
