The mind is not a vessel to be filled!!!

I really don't like talking about politics or economics that much,but with this whole financial crisis occurring I thought I'd add my spark to the flame of arguments for arguments sake.

I think the solution is simple. Our representatives seem to have failed. As one anchor on NBC put it..."someone screwed up." I think that because of this mistake, the politicians who claim to care sooo much about us should pay us for their mess up.

This makes sense because we are the employers and they are the employees. Mistakes will come out of their paycheck....I mean come on, I think they can afford to part with some of their money...right?

Happy Birthday Bilbo and Frodo!!!

"Today is my 111th birthday. 111 years is far too short a time to live among such excellent and admirable Hobbits. I don't know half of you half as well as I should like. And I like less than half of you half as well as you deserve." (Bilbo)

Hobbit stuff...

More Hobbit stuff...

"Fare well wherever you fare, till your eyries receive you at your journey's end."

Take that extroverts!!!

This is something my Mom sent me today and I really love it!

Q: I'm not a shy person, but whenever I get into a group of people I don't know too well, I can't find anything to say. I like who I am and I think I'm a decent person to get to know, and I'm tired of being told that I'm too quiet. Why can't people accept that not everyone is outgoing and talkative, and that's okay?

A: Boy, I know exactly how you feel. I have people telling me that I'm too quiet every other day, and it can get annoying I know. Do you know the saying "actions speak louder than words"? Well it's true, and considering that actions are louder than words it shouldn't matter what others say to you, or about you. St. Thomas Aquinas was called a dumb ox at school because he was so quiet, and you know what? He ended up becoming a Doctor of the Church. There is nothing wrong with being soft spoken. God made you and me that way for a reason. We're in this together dude.
