The Equal Marriage Bill

Today I sent a note to our Governor, Mr. Douglas.
This is what I sent:

  • Dear Gov. Douglas: I wanted to take a moment and let you know how I feel about bills S.115 and H.178 (An Act to Protect Religious Freedom and Promote Equality in Civil Marriage). I know that you feel as though civil unions are enough for Vermonters and on some levels I agree, but there is a lot in a name. I think if I were coupled in a civil union I would not feel the same as I would if my union was a marriage. Also, I feel as though Vermont is the greatest place to live in our country. I am a native Vermonter, the child/grandchild/great grandchild/great great grandchild (and on and on) of native Vermonters and I believe that these bills provide us with a great opportunity to show the rest of our country that the world will not end if we give equal rights to same sex couples. It's like when we are children and our parents admonish us to "set a good example." I think that is why these bills have come before you to sign. So that our Great State can be that good example for others.

I encourage you to send him a nice personal note as well. It's easy to do:

Politics--- and for once I'm happy!

Well, we all know the big news. Obama has won the election!!!!!!
I came into work this a.m. to two emails from one of my co-workers (we'll call him Don~M.) . The first being a copy of "Dancing in the Streets" and the other "What a Wonderful World". Two very good (and well picked) songs.

In other news, The Husband and I will not be moving out of the country after all (which is a good thing I suppose). :)

Til Next Time...

As you can see, we've updated the blog template.
That's all I have.
I hope to soon review "Spiritual Midwifery" as well as "Enslaved By Ducks," the two most recent books on my nightstand.

In the meantime.... Check this out. As always, we accept gifts everyday. Please ask for my mailing address if you need it.

Toilet Training The Blobbies- part I

I was stumbling, just now actually, and found this article ( http://www.karawynn.net/mishacat/toilet.html ).

As soon as I finish this blog I will be going to start the second step (we already keep the cat box next to the toilet).

I am super excited about this and will keep you updated on the progress.

New Blog

I've been thinking about having a "real" blog for a while now. At this point I don't have a whole lot to say, but I didn't want to have an empty blog.

Please be aware that the adults only block is NOT on for this blog, but I will be sure to alert readers if there is something that I feel is not child and/or work safe in a specific blog.

Thanks for stopping by.
I'll be back soon.
