Quotation President Obama has not, unfortunately, done nearly as much as F.D.R. to earn the hatred of the undeserving rich. But he has done more than many progressives give him credit for, and like F.D.R., both he and progressives in general should welcome that hatred, because it's a sign that they're doing something right. - Paul Krugman, NYTimes, 1/26/14

    Thankful that hurricane Hermine spared my family and I from the worst of it. It stayed on the other coast of Florida and then went north of us. We had no flooding just some rain over the night but nothing more than we get without it being from a hurricane. However, other areas of Florida not so lucky and it is going up the east coast of the USA so many will still be affected by this.

    lol...the birthday zone.....first time I saw that ecard.....thanks
    Well I was moving along fairly well with everything until I started to become ill. I thought I was just tired from the move as I felt the energy had left my body and I couldn't seem to get out of my own way. So I rested for a couple days then bam, on came the cold, and it got me good, so then I really could not move out of my way. Things pretty much came to a halt for the past week and tomorrow I've laundry, so....unpacking is going rather slowly. It will get done eventually.
