The 55th Birthday was quite the adventure, so was the day after! Between work and Ben, it derailed everything pretty quickly, although I am now able to sit down and record.
There are going to be some changes in the way I do things soon. Facebook does what it does, and I recognize it’s good points. For all that, there are things that I don’t like about it. So, rather than gripe and point fingers, I’m just going to change how I do things. If you want to be a part, great! If not, You don’t have to be!

So with the Kavanaugh thing, it really leads to one major concern for me – why is it that we can no longer have questions? Somehow we have reached a point where instead of answering the questions, we call the questioner names and demand acquiescence.

Or… does it?
Two Hundred and Thirty-One years ago, thirty-nine men put their signature on the document which they had prepared for the people of The United States to replace the system of government which was failing the country. Today we take a few moments to look back on the adventure that has been Constitution Thursday.
