Something interesting and quick check in...

I'm in Prince Rupert today after the weekend in Vancouver, which was the best. It's sunny here today and I can see (from my hotel balcony) - snow capped mountains, a sunny harbour, misty islands covered in thick cedar forests, one...no make that two eagles and a funky quaint main street. All of that makes it difficult to work.

I'll take some photos and find a cable to download them.

Here's another great video find - maybe you've seen it. The long view....

To our roving blogger - thanks for reporting in!
But if you blindly support your president without question because he claims to have God on his side, are we talking about a democracy or theocracy? In the Texas county in which I live (which is comprised of over 70% fundamentalist Christians), I think it is fair to say it is a theocracy, not a democracy. I was repeatedly told I was unpatriotic based on my views that we should not be going to war. While walking around the block one day, I realized one of my neighbors was moving and I asked her where she was going. She claimed she was one of the last surviving democrats and they were getting out before they were killed. She was joking but there was a certain seriousness about it, too. I’d only lived there a few months when I met her so hadn’t yet realized that being a Democrat was a crime but it didn’t take long to catch on. I met a vibrant conservative African-American woman who told me she believed a dark cloud resided over our neighborhood. I resisted her notions at the time, too. But all these years later I think both she and the Democratic exodus may have been right about their assessment. There is something very off about a democratic society that flatly denies one side of that democracy.

Do you have Prince Rupert
in the can?
love that video!

i kept expecting an Ent, with a Hobbit riding on his shoulder, to wander by and say "let's not be hasty"
