Welcome to my blog. Thanks for coming! One day I hope my little piece of internet real estate will be home to lots of family photos, pictures of my scrapbook and card art, with some random thoughts and memories posted on a somewhat regular basis. Mostly my world is very predictable, but occasionally some excitement will find me, so visit often. Who knows what useful (or useless) information you may find here.

The Speech

Did you watch the President on tv last night? I missed most of it, so I'm hoping to go back and watch it on the internet. I had to do the Wal Mart thing. If you watched it, what did you think? He is a very polished speaker and has a real talent for motivating even his non-supporters. Yeah, it all sounds really good, but when the rubber meets the road, I'm just not convinced it's a good idea... spending gazillions of dollars that we don't have. I do think it is important, though, to restore an element of confidence in the American people. Those much wiser in the world of finance will pick it apart and analyze everything (as well they should!) but for the rest of us, all we can do is trust them (gasp) to do what is best, and do our part to stimulate the economy. I know I personally stimulate Wal-Mart's economy every week. :-] Remember our leaders when you pray. Have a wonderful Wednesday!

  1. I fully agree with you...Big Gulp here!Not matter what side of the coin we are on, we are all in this together, And like you I seem to be supporting Wal Mart because with this economy that is where i can afford to get the most bang for my buck, I will pray for America and those who seem to be in control.
