Going S-L-O-W

I wish I could blog but I'm overloaded at the moment. Work is hairy, the family schedule is crazy, the holidays are extra busy this time 'round, there are some other things happening too, and my blog is just too low on the priority list to get much attention these days...

... which is a drag, because there are a lot of things going on and I wish I could write about all of them ... but instead I'm finding it tough to spend any time on any of them.

I'll have more on the Double Cover series as soon as I can, and more on some other things too. In the meantime, if there's anything you'd like to mention, please feel free.

If the shoe fits! :)

This Iraqi journalist is a REAL one!! smiling
Someone needs to give him a medal.
I shudder to think what they will do to him.

...[Bush's] appearance at a news conference here was interrupted by an Iraqi journalist who shouted in Arabic — “This is a gift from the Iraqis; this is the farewell kiss, you dog” — and threw one of his shoes at the president, who ducked and narrowly avoided being struck.
As chaos ensued, he threw his other shoe, shouting, “This is from the widows, the orphans and those who were killed in Iraq.”

According to Australian TV the journalist who threw the shoes had been recently kidnapped and tortured and had lost several family members and friends during the war.

A good idea

Here's a good idea!
From the comments at Tiny Revolution:
"I am going to print up a picture of the soles of my shoes, and then put it on a postcard and send to the White House. I make the postcard out of card stock paper, and postage is 27 cents. I put wide clear tape over the back of the card to secure the photo and prevent any damage to the card.

I hope all Americans will join me in doing this.

Some folks near DC will be throwing shoes at the White House - some folks are mailing in a shoe to the White House (costs about $4.50 to do that).
