Sam started school this week and last night his homework included an assignment to list the characteristics that make America unique. Watching the selfless police and rescue workers who no doubt had to leave their own families and homes to assist others, the grim determination of those pushing shopping carts loaded with earthly pocessions, the doctors using canoes to bring in medical supplies, the homemade “help” signs made from who knows what, held up by rooftop survivors, the we are all in this together attitude and the every man for himself attitude of the looters…all that captured the American character. And of course, all the bloggers that urged us to donate and provided links to the Red Cross, Feed The Children, and links to links.

The chemistry was there…the relationship has grown and deepened.
Ebays Customer Service is an exercise in frustration…emails are answered but just not the question you asked…

My August 22nd issue of New Yorker Magazine was invaded by advertising from Target Stores…I found it intrusive.
Advertisers “discover” big butts and wrinkles for new campaigns aimed at “everyday women”….
Paneras Wi-fi is free and when the power went out we were grateful….
