Just found care2's website after searching for a more unique email service.  I like it so far, though ANYTHING would be better than using charter.net with a Mac (evil overlords). 

I'm a part-time teacher (mostly science & tech summer camps for 5-8 year olds) and a work-like-a-dog-at-home Mom to my toddler son.  I love reading and I'm always on the hunt for a great book; I'm super cheap (or FRUGAL to make it sound better) so I'm also always on the hunt for a great deal; I thrive when I'm around children - adults are often too boring, uptight, guarded, or have lost the will to have fun for me, though my close friends are wonderfully fun, interesting and silly adults :) 

I love to garden and I'm learning more about how to grow better and healthier gardens with each new season. 

I LOVE living in Minnesota- I can't say there could be any better place to be.  (Just to give you a few reasons why: 1. No hurricanes - ever.  2. The seasons are clearly defined, and generally easy to deal with.  3. Snow is the most beautiful thing in the world (and if you've never been to MN, you should know that it's only around from about mid-Dec to mid-March/April).  4.  MN has forests, lakes, rivers, big cities, small towns, festivals all year round, zoos, art, theatre, museums, and beautiful green scenery almost all the time.)

I would do anything to help a child.  Adults are tricky- they can usually deal with their own issues, and have often caused a bunch of them.  Children are precious commodities who are new to this weird world we've created, and they all need some helping hands.  I would also do anything to protect children from those who wish to hurt them.  I can't think of a more heinous crime than hurting a child.  And I've been a teacher, daycare provider and nanny who has come into contact with MANY children who know just how to drive a person mad (in both tenses of the word).  I just think too many adults don't have that common sense "Pause Button" that allows the little voice in your head say things like, "Calm down, he/she is just a child." or  "No, I don't have the right to do THAT to this child."  I'm not sure what we should do with the adults who do hurt children, but what we're doing right now clearly isn't working.

About Me I look more Mom-like than I intended too. I read as often as I can. I watch WAY too much t.v. I spend much less on clothes than most everyone else I know. A true 'Home Grown Democrat', I work for the vision of the U.S. where everyone has the chance to be healthy, safe, educated and free. I know that'll be a long task.

Wild Fact About Me
My Philosophy We're all much more similar than we think. And we're all much weirder than we like to let on. Oh, and life is too short not to laugh everyday.
What Gives Me Hope Children, and the knowledge that there are so many others out there just like me.
If I were Mayor, I'd make the world a better place by Start giving paychecks for being nice. I think that would go a long way in making our world a better place to be. I'll PAY you to help out neighbors, clean up the area, donate your stuff, etc.
What/who changed my life and why Ghandi. Saw it when I was about 8yrs old. I had no ideas about India yet, and was amazed by this amazing man. Also, I'm 1/8 Polish, and was raised Catholic, so having a Polish Pope (Pope John Paul II for those in a cave for the last 30 years) was amazingly cool. Though his views were always much more conservative than mine, I think he wanted the same vision of the world that I have.
