Great experience.....

I'm really glad I went to the District Caucus last night - I now know how to run as a delegate in the future. We elected for Hillary, 1 woman, 2 men and 1 woman alternate. For Obama, they elected 1 woman and 1 man. Somehow this combination is relevant to the number of votes that were cast for each candidate.
If last night is any indication, I am glad that I am not going to Convention in August. I think it will take a miracle to pull the two sides together to defeat McCain.
I'm really glad I went and had this experience....

South Pacific...

I recently watched a movie from my past, and it is called "South Pacific" ~ in High School this was the theme of our Senior Prom and I just loved the movie, so seeing it again brought back many found memories.
I was particularly struck once again by the song, "You've Got to Be Carefully Taught" and I really think the words from this song should be listened to by each of us. The theme of the song is that racism is not born in you! Racism happens after you are born!
As much as everyone has tried to make us white folks understand that we don't have a background of oppression, so we are not able to relate to what Pastor Wright is saying, I just don't understand why Obama went to that church for over 20 years. Apparently he was not outraged by what was being said from the pulpit.
However, my biggest objection is that this bigotry towards white people is what the little children in that church today are hearing and being taught......there is no mistake about the words that are being said. Barack took his children to this church Sunday after Sunday. In my way of thinking~ "You've Got to Be Carefully Taught" before you are 6, 7 or 8, just like the lyrics to the song say.

The Three Amigos..

These three guys can sure "giggle" together. This was taken last weekend when we were down in St.Louis. It was pretty hard to keep up with these guys~they figured out how to all three ride the exercise bike.
My favorite line of the weekend came from Sam. He absolutely loves fresh blueberries and when he came into the kitchen he wanted me to give him some blueberries. I said, "Sam, you will have to wait a few minutes until we have dinner and I put the blueberries in a fresh fruit salad." His response ~ "Good Grief" ~ and with that he walked out of the kitchen. Sam just has a way of cutting right to it.
Sure hope you all have a wonderful, spring-filled Monday with no "Good Griefs"!

Happy Easter..

What a glorious morning......I wish the blessings of Easter to each and everyone that reads my blog. We all need to center our thoughts and lives on the meaning of Easter and rejoice in this beautiful day!
The absolute worst day in the history of the world was on the Friday before Easter Sunday......and yet, look what a miracle happened just three days later....Jesus arose from the dead and now lives in Heaven to give us each the understanding and blessing of life eternal.
I hope your day is just fantastic!
