If You Were Blind Would You Have Enough Faith in Someone to Jump Off of a 40 Foot Cliff With Him? - 08/24/11 06:38 PM
My wife and I have really enjoyed a new show this summer, Expedition Impossible. It started with 13 teams of 3 going on an expedition across Morocco, from the deserts to the snow covered mountains. The teams had to race through each stage of the expedition, walking, climbing, riding camels, riding semi-wild horses, kayaking, white water rafting, rappelling, crawling through caves, navigating narrow paths along cliff edges, swimming rivers, etc. And also solve puzzles that required dexterity, observation, and brain power. And it all relied heavily on teamwork. The teams are made up of everyday ordinary people (3 sisters), atheletes ( (13 comments)
“Now we Democrats have to admit that we are floundering." - 08/19/11 04:12 PM
We have pulled all the rabbits out of the hat, and there are no more rabbits. . . . We are a confused, bewildered group of people, and we are not delivering the goods.” Congressman Maury Maverick, D-Texas. If you look into today's congress, you won't find Maury. He was an ardent FDR supporter and a proponent of the New Deal. And one to recognize, along with FDR's good buddy Morgenthau that all that spending wasn't working. In September Presdident Obama will announce his latest "jobs plan" (how many more jobs will be lost by then?). Of course, will it really (22 comments)
Reasons number 1 & 2: my 1 year old grand twins Calleigh & Jackson
Reason #3, my soon to be 6 grandson Daniel

Because of and for them, I will fight against bigotry and for the freedom to associate with whom they will, to love whom they would. Because of them and for them I will fight against any abstinence only policy of sex education. Because of and for (18 comments)
Reasons 2 & 3, my latest grandchildren, Calleigh & Jackson. Because of and for them, I cannot accept and will fight against policies that continue to increase the debt that they will inherit. Because of and for them I will fight against policies that will grant them less freedom opportunity and liberty than I had growing up. Because of and for ,them I will fight against policies that seek (14 comments)
Maybe Harry Reid, Barbara Boxer, Jay Rockefeller & Others Need to Read the Bill Before They Demogogue the Republicans for Something That Isn't In It - 08/03/11 10:50 AM
Before recessing, and after passing the Debt Ceiling bill, the House of Representatives passed a bill providing for another short term extension of the FAA Taxes and Trust Fund. Reid did not allow the bill to come to the floor for a vote and now there are 4000 FAA employees on furlough until after Labor Day (at the earliest), approximately 70000 construction workers off of FAA projects and a projected short fall of taxes (on the sale of airline tickets) of over $1.2 billion. Reid, and the rest of the dems, are accusing the republicans of being anti-labor and adding anti-labor (24 comments)
Who wouldn't like to charge their phone, I-Pad, I-Pod, etc. & still have 2 outlets left? - 08/01/11 11:48 AM
Now this is a cool new tool. Would be great for on or adjacent to desks and countertops. Does not look like it has UL approval yet, at least there is no indication on the web page, so, if a fire occurred from the outlet there could be insurance ramifications. I will be emailing the company about there plans for UL review. Via David Farrell Licensed NY State Real Estate Broker (David V.
