TOO SOON PAST- Lake Michigan vacation is now history
It was a great week with wonderful beach weather and a whole string of sunsets similar to this one! I'll let the Patch family speak for themselves, but the Spurriers (Shelley, Savannah, Kipper, and yours truly) had a great time!
I HAVE NO CLUE WHAT WENT ON IN THE NEWS LAST WEEK!
I purposely avoided all sources of news for the entire week. The only news I caught sight of was a headline saying the space shuttle was being permanently grounded. I have no idea what went on, so... fill me in on what you thought was the most important news event of the week!
TALK OF THE NATION had a great show today on a subject I blogged on a few weeks ago. Through our consumption of foreign oil, we are funding our enemies! The very people who would like nothing better than to destroy us and our way of life! It is the number one threat to national security, yet the Bush administration has failed miserably in addressing the problem. As has the Republican congress. As (before anyone starts to gloat), did Bill Clinton. This is absolutely the most critical problem facing our country, yet Bush does his best Nero imitation, fiddling while our energy sources burn. This was a great show, and I'd encourage you to go to NPR.org and take a listen.
Hope you all had a great week (but missed me just a little)!
