In Loving Memory

with 6 comments

Last night our dog Jake had to be put to sleep.  He hadn’t been feeling well for the past week and went downhill very quick yesterday.  He will be missed.

I want my hour back

with 2 comments

It seems as if I’m going to have to wait until November 2nd to get it back.  I don’t know about you but I don’t like waking up when it’s dark out.  Why do they have to play with the time this way?

What to do, what to do …

Another election year upon us and I don’t know who to vote for.  I have contemplated not voting but if I do that then I lose my right to complain.  So I guess I have to vote.    Here are the pros and cons for each candidate as I see it. 

Barack Obama

Pro – If Obama wins there’s no chance of Sarah Palin becoming President

Con – If Obama wins Hillary is done

John McCain

Pro – If John McCain wins we’ll have Hillary in 4 more years

Con – If John McCain wins and something happens to him then Sarah Palin will be President

This is how I see it folks.  Hillary would have been the better candidate.  At a minimum, Obama should have chosen Hillary for his VP pick.  I also like John McCain but when he chose Sarah Palin for his running mate I had to wonder why.

What about Caylee?

It seems the Anthony residence is now a tourist attraction.  Unbelievable!

“ORANGE COUNTY, Fla. (WOFL FOX 35, Orlando) —   A few protesters showed up at outside the Anthony’s home on Saturday, along with a few tourists.  One family from Orlando — a mom, son, and daughter dressed for a nice evening dinner — stopped by the Anthony’s to take a few pictures.”

Looking to Create Jaliek’s Law

leave a comment »

Last night I attended a community fourm in Troy, NY organized by Rev. Tim Sherman.  The intent of this law is to provide oversight for post adoption services.  Many people aren’t aware that, in some cases, once a child is adopted from the foster care systemthe state still provides a monthly check to the adoptive parents.  This scenario is for special needs/therapeutic children who require extra care and/or therapy.  Jaliek was one of those children.
