Is it really worth the effort of possible jail time? No wonder voter fraud is so rare, one must be extremely stupid to even consider it...now election fraud, that takes the no so great legal minds.

Puzzle — 3:54 I lingered too long over that relaxing cup of tea and hot buttered scones!

MoveOn — That was fun! Well I don't have anyone to call, but I pledge to talk about getting out the vote and voting intelligently for Mr Obama as much as possible until the election. I was at a memorial service yesterday for an 83 year old man that I sang tenor with in our church choir. At the reception, I got into a discussion with a church friend about the US election and politics in general. Gave him your website and Care2 and he seemed quite interested. If you see something from Bruce N in Coquitlam, it's likely my friend and he's a good dude. His son, many years ago now, was in the sunday school class I taught.

The Guardian — As much as I would like it to be, the article has a correction at the bottom:

"• This article was corrected on 4 November 2012. An earlier version of this story ran with the headline "Iran suspends uranium enrichment" based on Asafari's quotes as reported by al-Arabiya."

But I sincerely wished that Tehran had backed off!

Brad Blog — No you don't need to tell us which party! Admittedly, there is no way to prove if she did this of her own accord or was put up to it by another misguided soul, but how many more are there of either stripe (but mostly GOP) that will try this? This is not the way to win an election and only casts dispersions on the party, in this case the Republican/Teabaggers. Why would a 56 year old hotel employee vote Republican? That is so against her own interests

Cartoon — When I saw this, I almost broke into song! Oh hell, I will but don't mind if I am off key!

Aaa – men! Aaa – men!! Aa – men!!! Amen!!!! AMEN!!!!! (all together now . . . clap as you sing)
Aaa – men! Aaa – men!! Aa – men!!! Amen!!!! AMEN!!!!!

Thanks Tom.
Wonderful Move On video. Yes I've called.
Wish the news from Iran had been correct.
Brad's blog: Sounds like the GOP has started a grassroots movement to steal the election..LOL
Love the prophetic cartoon.
Read, viewed and noted.

I have to say that I thoroughly enjoyed Joe Biden's little joke to a crowd in Colorado, who were absolutely enjoying it.


Folks, I want to remind you this is the end of daylight savings time tonight. It’s Mitt Romney’s favourite time of year because he gets to turn the clock back!


What a wonderful sense of humour. I wonder if Romney will be crowing about that tomorrow or if he'll let the boy wonder take it on?

TomCat - I still cannot get my hand-eye coordination up to even approach your score on the Jigzone puzzle - and I've BEEN to Castle Combe (in my young days!). Sigh!! I do hope you are right that President Obama gets another term... with all the Repuglicon voter fraud it will be a true miracle if he does!

God, if we must endure four more years of Obama can we at least get a new picture? Tired of all those looking down his nose at us shots. I don't care who you vote for -just get out and do it!

We've been so fortunate this fall and blessed with a huge migration of saw-whet owls. They had a very good reproductive year and are streaming south. Most have now left Canada and some have reached Alabama. Our two nation network of researchers have done very well and we here have examined 141 of these cute little owls so far.

Working nights with full attention to the owls has largely kept us off the net except for clicks which we haven't missed since 1989! Only up this AM because of a badly need dental visit!

I hope you all are well.

Tom, I can't begin to imagine Obama losing tomorrow and so in hope your predictions are right. Yes, I've called, this time and in 2008 also. So disturbing to see FL in play again with people waiting 5+ hours to vote and Ohio reducing early voting hours. The rethugs are once again, trying to steal an election.
