bad blogger am I

I suck at remembering to post blogs, and I realized that last week as I was talking to myself as if I was posting something in my blog. I do need to be better at finding the time to post new thoughts and pictures and revelations, and hopefully one day I will start doing this daily. I will just post pictures today with funny tags on them.

First, the costume for Joseph that I designed for the Christmas play at church. This was all my design, no pattern or instructions, all me. :) It felt like Project Runway, as I was working on it.

Both princesses before going to Christmas Eve church, and watching Santa drive through the neighborhood on a fire truck. It's exciting every year.

The Nativity at church. Big Princess was Mary, and Little Princess was a lamb. It was truly a beautiful scene, thanks to the director (of both the choir and children program).

The kids racked up on gifts.

The cat wasn't really into it.

My favorite gift was this Cadillac sewing machine. :)

Lastly, Daddy Princess (oh, I mean the King) fell asleep at the 4th and final Christmas.

Beloved, let us love one another, for love is of God, and everyone that loveth is born of God and knoweth God. He that loveth not, knoweth not God for God is love. Beloved, let us love one another.

The Fix

The Fix

There recently was an article in the St. Petersburg Florida Times. The Business Section asked readers for ideas on: "How Would You Fix the Economy?"

I think this guy nailed it!

Dear Mr. President,

Please find below my suggestion for fixing America 's economy. Instead of giving billions of dollars to companies that will squander the money on lavish parties and unearned bonuses, use the following plan. You can call it the "Patriotic Retirement Plan":

There are about 40 million people over 50 in the work force. Pay them $1 million apiece severance for early retirement with the following stipulations:

1) They MUST retire. Forty million job openings - Unemployment fixed..

2) They MUST buy a new American CAR. Forty million cars ordered – Auto Industry fixed.

3) They MUST either buy a house or pay off their mortgage – Housing Crisis fixed.

It can't get any easier than that!!

P.S. If more money is needed, have all members in Congress pay their taxes...

Mr. President, while you're at it, make Congress retire on Social Security and Medicare. I'll bet both programs would be fixed pronto!

If you think this would work, please forward to everyone you know.

If not, please disregard.
