Today’s Quote:  “When you are a professional student living at home with Mommy and Daddy, it’s easy to be a liberal.  You merely have to grow a beard and pontificate on the greed of the one-per centers, expertly employing the otherwise useless skills you acquired at an elite Ivy League school.  But once you have to apply for your own loans, pay your own insurance, taxes and the rest, you realize that your best chance to live in security and provide for your loved ones is to support the fiscally responsible agenda of conservatives.”

“It’s really easy to deny your religious upbringing and march for women’s “rights” to ensure your easy access to contraception and abortion, should you ever decide to enter into relations with the beastly male gender.  But it’s hard to support infanticide once you’ve actually done the deed and felt the heartbeat of your child and seen him on an ultrasound image; and it’s harder still to believe there is no God when you gaze at the face of your firstborn, filled with love and awe at this gift of perfect innocence and purity.”

How Consciousness Works

Sunday afternoon, I went for a walk with my wife about 5 miles from where we live.  Midway through, the sky suddenly and totally opened up on us with fifteen minutes of non-stopped horizontal rain.  We were both completely soaked!  Got back to the house, completely dry (there)¡ Fortunately my new Pentax camera is WATERSEALED – YESSSS!!!

Haven’t done much else noteworthy this weekend, but take this photo of my dog Hank sitting in his hole in the back yard.  I’ve tried to get this shot a couple of times lately only to have him jump out when he saw me get up to go get my camera.
