The End of an Era

Whether you liked Ted Kennedy and his politics or not, his passing marks the end of an era in America. The Kennedy's have played a huge role in America's history. To stand up and fight for what you belive in, and do it for most of your life, says a lot about a person.

I try very hard to "walk the talk" when it comes to my beliefs. It takes a lot of energy and many times I just don't have it. Ted Kennedy, as did his brothers, spent his adult life working for what he believed would make life better for many Americans.

Yes there are other Kennedy's, but it's just not the same as "The Kennedy's" - John, Bobby and Ted.

Flora, Fauna and Merriweather

I can't believe this week is gone already. It's been eventful - I met with that customer I mentiond several weeks ago and I'm doing some contract work for her, which is very intersting. It just might lead to something bigger but at least I can augment my unemployment and make it last a little longer.

Here are a couple of pics of my three youngest hens - Flora, Fauna and Merriweather. I mean you know we have to name things after the Disney princess'!!

Here theyare as babies on my desk while I'm typing:

Here they are last summer eating yogurt:

It's Friday and that means I've gotta run to clean my friend's house. Have a great day, whatever you do with it.
