  • Happy 4th of July!

    Weather outlook for today is hot, but no so hot as it has been. Maybe a thunderstorm in the afternoon. 75% Chance is what they give us. That’s high, but I’ve seen higher chances with no output here, so … We have grilling for later, and fireworks for much later. I have some little things […]

  • The Fourth of July

    Tomorrow is the Fourth of July. It’s a big deal in the USA … and has always been so for me. My birthday is exactly two weeks after the holiday, so it “feels like the beginning of my special time” … has always. In my family I have/had a sister and my father with birthdays […]

  • Stupid Outing

    On Saturday, August 22, 2009 it was our 17th Wedding Anniversary. We went to the High Museum of Art in Atlanta as planned (see previous post) & I finally saw one of my favorite painters paintings in the Monet Water Lilies special exhibition which was ending on the 23rd of August. In that exhibit you […]

  • Waiting … always

    There’s a bright blue sky, sun shining even brighter, and I feel so blah. I feel bad for things going on and my messy house and lack of direction for this and that and lack of feeling connected. There is always tomorrow, though. I do think that some might think me “depressed” when reading what […]

  • Biblical Christianity and Catastrophes

    Bret McAtee has a great post about the New Orleans situation and Biblical Christianity. If y’all have read my earlier Hurricane Katrina posts, you might know that I have heard the “cess pool” term used in description of New Orleans, physically, on TWC and remarked at how that is a spiritually fitting term, also I […]

  • Ode to a Lizzard

    Ode to a Lizzard Death came quickly to your doorstep I tried to protect you but all in vain For I was the one who wielded the weapon I was the one who caused you the pain I cried with sorrow at your passing I cried with guilt I cried with shame But those around […]

  • Mary Sue Candy and Marysue

    Someone searched Yahoo for “Marysue Easter Eggs” and a few links for my site came up near the top. That is totally normal I think, since I am Marysue and I talk about eggs often enough, and apparently even have the word “easter” in a post or more than one. 😉 I found out about […]

  • Book Meme: What’s nearest you

    Found this Book Meme out on ‘the web’ 1. Grab the nearest book. 2. Open the book to page 123. 3. Find the fifth sentence. 4. Post the text of the sentence in your journal along with these instructions. 5. Don’t search around and look for the “coolest” book you can find. Do what’s actually […]

  • Wikki Stix

    Wikki Stix are cool, fun, made in the USA and cheap. We have only come into contact with them physically at one place. Ted’s Montana Grill. Wikki Stix are available to restaurants, and other businesses from their website. Restaurants usually have crayons and paper things for children. Do you know how argumentative that can be […]

  • Merry Christmas Everyone!

    It’s Christmas Eve, the tree is trimmed. It’s just a little trimmed, it’s a little tree. 4Ft. Tall, it looks like a minature Christmas Tree, it’s like a Full Fledged tree, just small. It’s also ALIVE. Alberta Spruce, of some sort, it’s going to get a couple or so feet taller, and end up about […]

  • Which Artist Would Paint You?

    I found this quiz via Carmon’s site. You have the Reynolds girl look. Reynolds girls had the typical British beauty. The eighteenth century British portrait painters would have been attracted by your brilliant complexion and your classical features. Sir Joshua Reynolds loved to paint girls like you in white dresses with blue satin sashes. Reynolds […]

  • Post Election 2004 I

    I’m chomping at the bit for Peroutka numbers for Georgia. All the other states too. I see in my own county that there are just over 100 Libertarian Candidate for Pres. this year. Peroutka was a Write-In in Georgia, so who knows when data will be available.

  • 2004 Election Day – November 2

    Today is Election Day in the United States of America, a.k.a. The USA, The US, and formerly known as “These United States”. Frank and I both voted this morning, with the three children by our sides. Voting has gone E-voting in Georgia this year. Touch Screen voting was easy. I sort of showed Russell what […]

  • Voting 2004 Election

    Map of Peroutka’s up-to-dateballot access We are considering “voting early” as we can do that in our state the week before the election … that is THIS week, but not the day of or day before the “actual” day of election voting. We will be looking into it tomorrow or so. For me I prefer […]

  • Cornell Third-Party Debate (Peroutka)

    Today our pastor is away in Chicago speaking at the church that had a conference this past week at which he also spake, so we had our pastor-filler-John_Carrick, whom comes often when our pastor isn’t there. Today’s message was on “The Glory of Creation” Gen. 1:1-31. Very lovely. In any case, we aren’t going to […]

  • Crashing the show about Crashing the Parties

    PBS was supposed to be airing a show last night or tonight, depending on location and station, called “Crashing the Parties 2004”. Hmph, it didn’t air on any of the stations we can get. We have DirecTv again now, and at least two local PBS stations. It irks me since PBS has it online as […]
