***Had a bit of a crazy weekend. We went to Dayton Saturday to meet Emily, Peter, Peter's parents, and Johnny for lunch and a bit of shopping at Sam's Club. We were supposed to have family over for dinner yesterday, so I did my grocery shopping before we left for Dayton, then cleaned and cooked what I could in advance Saturday night. Got up early Saturday morning to get a little transcription done, then more cleaning and cooking. However, we got about 6" of snow, so that put the kibosh on everything! Aunt Bobbie didn't want to make the drive from Pendleton, and Mark's mom was sick with the flu. Had my mom come & stay last night and we had a really nice dinner! Fortunately, I didn't have everything cooked and was able to freeze some of what I had ready. Hopefully we'll be able to do it this weekend.
***Benjamin Netanyahu gave a great speech today, and will be addressing Congress tomorrow. It's unbelievable to me that the Democrats and their hip-pocket press are painting his visit as "controversial." Israel is a strong U.S. ally. It's only controversial to them because it will show how much more of a leader he is than our bumbling president. Netanyahu is basically the leader of the free world now.
According to a WSJ/NBC survey, 48% of people disapprove of Netanyahu's visit. Well done, "news" media. I'll bet not one of those people could tell you WHY they disapprove.
***The country's in the very best of hands: Feds spend $12,500 translating Spanish novel on "heterosexual privilege." God help us.
The Father of our Country and America’s 1st President,
George Washington, stands tall above all others in the history of our
Founders. He never did actually chop down that cherry tree though. That
story was concocted by a biographer years after his death. He did,
however, almost meet an early death on many occasions that would have
prevented his ascent. He had bullets graze him and nearly drowned in an
icy river after falling off a raft. He also suffered with and survived
malaria, smallpox, pleurisy and dysentery. George Washington was a man
destined to lead the birth of what would become the world’s greatest
nation. And his greatest act? Leaving office peacefully (and joyfully)
after his term. America is what it is today because Washington was who
The White Rabbit's Verses
By Lewis Carroll
They told me you had been to her,
And mentioned me to him;
She gave me a good character,
But said I could not swim.
He sent them word I had not gone.
(We know it to be true.)
If she should push the matter on,
What would become of you?
I gave her one, they gave him two,
You gave us three or more;
They all returned from him to you,
Though they were mine before.
If I or she should chance to be
Involved in this affair,
He trusts to you to set them free,
Exactly as we were.
My notion was that you had been
(Before she had this fit)
An obstacle that came between
Him and ourselves and it.
Don't let him know she liked them best,
For this must ever be
A secret, kept from all the rest,
Between yourself and me.
