I have changed a lot of things over the years....I no longer drink pop, stay away from commercially baked products and prepared foods, use whole grains, eat more veggies and fruits, rarely eat fast food and get regular exercise.
The result is that I am healthier than I've been in years. I rarely get sick, don't have high blood pressure, cholesterol numbers have improved considerably, my allergies and asthma are minor issues. I have my aches and pains from old injuries but, even that is reduced due to these positive lifestyle changes. My body does not want to let go of the extra pounds but, I can live with that.
Change has done my body GOOD!

It's all about the economy and blaming President Obama for the mess that the Bush administration created and the house Republicans worsened by their obfuscation of the facts and obstruction of anything the President tried to accomplish. They have created fear and division in their quest to make President Obama seem like an alien presence, hell bent on stealing America from "Real Americans".
As a REAL AMERICAN, I resent that the Republicans have wasted so much time and energy demonizing the President, questioning his birthright, his faith, his political principles and his motives for every step he has taken. Instead of working for the collective us, the Republicans have worked against the collective us. They have fed the rightwing monster and teabag traitors who promote such divisive political drama.
After the tragedy of 9/11 there was a unity of purpose in our country that is sadly lacking, today. The election of President Obama in 2004 presented a new chance to lift us and yes, give us hope. This centrist President has made much more progress than he's given credit for, despite the politics of obstruction from the Republicans. From equal rights to equal pay, from health care to welfare, from a recovering economy to regaining our prosperity AND the demise of Bin Laden......We ARE better off today than we were four years ago.
I DREAD thinking where we'd be with McCain and Palin and I do NOT believe that Romney and Ryan will lift ALL of us into prosperity. They offer no specifics and no answers. I think they take care of their own. They have not made their case for unity and prosperity for all.
I want a President that will lead all of us. I want that unity of purpose to see all of us empowered to achieve our goals. I don't want to be trickled on.....I want float on an ocean of possibility. We are a great country and we can be even better not by stepping on one another but, by working together.
I will be voting to re-elect President Obama. He is the best hope for ALL OF US.

so much like that day, 11 years ago. Cloudless skies and sunshine. When the horror started the skies did not change. We stared in disbelief and shock, willing the day to return to the peaceful serenity of just a few hours past. All day and into the afternoon, the sky remained a crystal blue as though in defiance of the heartless attack on humanity that occurred on that beautiful day.
We honor and remember the brave souls of 9/11, every day...but especially on a beautiful day like today.
Peace to all who seek it. The rest can go to hell.

The very wealthy accumulate wealth.
The middle class creates it.
The poor will spend it if they have it.
From the bottom up, everyone is lifted, everyone benefits. Trickle down doesn't get to the bottom and doesn't spread evenly along the middle. It keeps the rich on top, resting on the rest of us.

Our kids have friends that come and go,
some that we will hardly know.
And once in a great while,
one will charm you with a smile.
They leave their mark,
on your heart....even after they are gone.
Rest in peace, young friend.
