The Distance Between Us

I am home!
up the steps
through the door
where is Mom
I want to cry out to her
The war is over,
I am home!
I want to hold her
to bury my face in her
sweet warm neck
Mom always smells of vanilla
and cookies
I want to run to her
to close this distance between us

Dad? Where is Dad
ahh there he is,
sitting at the table
stirring his coffee
Dad! look at me
I'm home!
Why do you look so sad
come on Dad,
give me a hug
close this distance between us

oh,oh wait there's Anne
sweet little sister Annie
always smiling, laughing
Annie? what's wrong?
why are you crying Annie
come closer let me hold you
close this distance between us

from the corner of my eye
a door opens
a light shines,warm
a friendly face appears
Sarge? Sarge is that you
what are you doing here
and who is that behind you
Grandpa? Gandpa!
Grandpa, I've missed you so much
remember when we used to go fishing Grandpa
and still another face
familiar yet strange
he smiles and says
"welcome home my son,
your work on earth is done"
he reaches out his hand and
closes the distance between us.

Sunday Sweets


Tech Support: Yes, .. how can I help you?

Customer: Well, after much consideration, I've decided to install Love. Can you guide me though the process?

Tech Support: Yes. I can help you. Are you ready to proceed?

Customer: Well, I'm not very technical, but I think I'm ready. What do I do first?

Tech Support: The first step is to open your Heart. Have you located your Heart?

Customer: Yes, but there are several other programs running now. Is it okay to install Love while they are running?

Tech Support: What programs are running ?

Customer: Let's see, I have Past Hurt, Low Self-Esteem, Grudge and Resentment running right now.

Tech Support: No problem, Love will gradually erase Past Hurt from your current operating system. It may remain in your permanent memory but it will no longer disrupt other programs. Love will eventually override Low Self-Esteem with a module of its own! called High Self-Esteem. However, you have to completely turn off Grudge and Resentment. Those programs prevent Love from being properly installed. Can you turn those off ?

Customer: I don't know how to turn them off. Can you tell me how?

Tech Support: With pleasure. Go to your start menu and invoke Forgiveness. Do this as many times as necessary until Grudge and Resentment have been completely erased.

Customer: Okay, done! Love has started installing itself. Is that normal?

Tech Support: Yes, but remember that you have only the base program. You need to begin connecting to other Hearts in order to get the upgrades.

Customer: Oops! I have an error message already. It says, "Error - Program not run on external components " What should I do?

Tech Support: Don't worry. It means that the Love program is set up to run on Internal Hearts, but has not yet been run on your Heart. In non-technical terms, it simply means you have to Love yourself before you can Love others.

Customer: So, what should I do?

Tech Support: Pull down Self-Acceptance; then click on the following files: Forgive-Self; Realize Your Worth; and Acknowledge your Limitations

Customer: Okay, done.

Tech Support: Now, copy them to the "My Heart" directory. The system will overwrite any conflicting files and begin patching faulty programming. Also, you need to delete Verbose Self-Criticism from all directories and empty your Recycle Bin to make sure it is completely gone and never comes back.

Customer: Got it. Hey! My heart is filling up with new files. Smile is playing on my monitor and Peace and Contentment are copying themselves all over My Heart. Is this normal?Tech Support: Sometimes. For others it takes awhile, but eventually everything gets it at the proper time. So Love is installed and running. One more thing before we hang up. Love is Freeware. Be sure to give it and its various modules to everyone you meet. They will in turn share it with others and return some cool modules back to you.

Customer: Thank you, God.

Thanks to Monica at Monicas Thought's for this lovely little yarn.

To Whom it May Concern

I'm going to be fairly busy this weekend. I hope you all will forgive me if I don't get around to your blogs until early next week. I have a post all ready for here for tomorrow, all I have to do is log on long enough to hit post. My Memorial Day post is already up over at The Podunt Post . It would mean a lot to me if you'd take the time to check it out and maybe even sign that petition. Regardless of our political leanings I think we can all agree we owe it to our troops to seek the truth.
Once again I want to wish everyone a safe and happy Memorial Day weekend. Don't forget to our our Vets and our troops.

ps: Yes, David I did see that about the good (NOT!) democratic Senator from Tennessee. I'd say DeLay has some serious competition for the bad boy of politics award.
Enjoy your weekend ducky!!!

The Friday Five

I haven't seen the Friday Five being done in awhile so I thought I'd dig around, find some good questions and give it a go. So without further ado...

1.) Do you believe in love at first sight? Why or why not?
Sure, why not? Anything is possible. Right?
2.) What physical feature attracts you the most (romantically) to another person?
The face. It's a combination of eyes, lips, and good teeth.
3.) What do you think is the biggest benefit of being in a romantic relationship?
Someone to share your ups and downs with. To talk to. To cuddle with. And of course great sex.
4.) Biggest downside?
You have someone always wanting to know what your doing, where your going, how much money your spending. I like my independence too.
5.) Has your idea of love and romance changed? If so, how?
When I was younger I thought love and romance were everything. Without them I'd be alone and lonely. I now know that happiness, and fulfillment start within ourselves. First we need to love ourselves. Then we have something to share with another person. I've also learned there are many kinds of love. Friends can bring as much joy and happiness into our lives as a lover.

Memorial Day weekend is here. I want to wish all my fellow mericuns out there a safe and happy holiday. Don't forget to honor our vets.
For anyone who's interested, the A & E network will be airing The Faith of My Fathers on Monday night. The made for tv movie is based on John McCain's book by the same title. It deals mostly with his time as a POW during the Vietnam war. If you want to see a true American hero be sure to check this movie out. Regardless of what you think of him politically there is no denying the sacrifice he made for his country. McCain is what guys like John Wayne pretended to be in the movies. The real deal!
Anyway (ohhhh Piggy's fav word) enjoy your weekend. You Canucks too!

Thursday's Treat

Spaghetti for One (or two or three or four)
A doctor had an amazing one night stand with his nurse. Shortly afterward, she told him she was pregnant. Not wanting his wife to know, he gave the nurse a sum of money and asked her to go to Italy and have the baby there.

"But how will I let you know the baby is born?" she asked. He replied, "Just send me a postcard and write 'spaghetti' on the back. I'll take care of expenses."
Not knowing what else to do, the nurse took the money and flew to Italy.
Six months went by and then one day the doctor's wife called him at the office and explained,
"Dear, you received a very strange postcard in the mail today from Europe, and I don't understand what it means."

The doctor said, "Just wait until I get home and I will explain it to you." Later that evening, the doctor came home, read the postcard, fell to the floor with a heart attack. Paramedics rushed him to the ER. The lead medic stayed back to comfort the wife. He asked what trauma had precipitated the cardiac arrest.

So the wife picked up the card and read, "Spaghetti, Spaghetti, Spaghetti, Spaghetti - Two with sausage and meatballs, two without."

Wednesday's Woe's

Woman arrested with 2 children in trunk

NEWHALL, California (AP) -- A woman was arrested after the California Highway Patrol officer who pulled her car over found nine people crammed inside, including two children in the trunk.

Dear Lord what is this world coming to? Children throughout our country are being kidnapped, raped, buried alive, and murdered. Child molesters are on the loose everywhere we look. Mothers are bringing home drunks and perverts, exposing their children to untold dangers. Still the courts will give them custody in a heartbeat. Has our country lost all sense of responsibility to those who look to us for safety and protection?
The Michael Jackson case is being treated like it's a sideshow. [ Jay Leno Brings Levity Into Court ]
What is there to be laughing about here? No matter how you look at it the children in this case are victims. Multiple times over. That's no laughing matter. Not in my opinion.
So much pain, and misery is visited upon those least able to defend themselves.

I used to believe you could judge a nation by the way it treated the least of it's citizens. If that's the case we're a nation in deep trouble.

On a more optimistic note, it's Wednesday, the weekend is only two days away. Frankly I'm thinking I may need a couple of bottles of cheap wine to get through those next two days. Maybe even the weekend too.
I need a vacation. Maybe I'll put up a PayPal link and see if I can get any donations.

Cultural Creatives are probably the newest group to enter this realm.

Manic Monday Part Deux

Reason No. 147 why I'm glad I don't have small children anymore.

ELKHART, Indiana (AP) -- A crane vending machine can be frustrating enough when you're trying to snatch a little stuffed toy from its steely clutches. Imagine if the prize it's denying you is your own 3-year-old son.

James Manges II managed to climb up the chute and inside one of the machines Thursday, swinging around for an hour amid the plush toys he coveted before firefighters freed him.[source]

I for one would have been seriously tempted to leave him there. At least while I did my shopping.

ps: I hope all my friends in Canada are enjoying a happy and safe Victoria Day weekend!

American Pride

Yesterday's Quick Vote question on the CNN news website was
"Would you encourage a young person to pursue a career in the military today?"
Now you would think coming from a family with a long history of miltary men that I would be inclined to feel military service is as much an honor as it is a duty. There was a time when I would have answered yes to that question.
I grew up in the miltary. My own father, my step-father, my brother, and uncles on both sides of my family all served in various branches of the military. The same is true of my husband's family. When our oldest son, Daniel, graduated from high school we were thrilled that he chose to enlist in the Air Force. When Josh's time came I admit I was a bit disappointed that he opted not to enter any branch of the military. Even when Robby graduated I wanted him to at least consider the National Guard or Reserves.
Oh how a few years can change one's outlook. These days I find myself thanking God that neither Josh or Robby went that route and that Daniel left at the end of his enlistment.
I was talking to a friend recently who's brother-in-law is a recruiter. She told me that to the best of her knowledge not a single graduate from high school this year has signed up . Not for the Guard, Reserves or active duty. Not one. Sadly I'm not surprised. In fact, I look at the world today and I wonder why any young person would choose to enter the military. I know I certainly wouldn't encourage them to. Not because of the war in Iraq. War is a reality that those who choose the military life live with. No, it's because I see how our country and our government treats it's veterans.
Would you be surprised to know there are over 300,000 homeless veterans in this country? Can you guess what a veteran of 20 years receives as retirement pay? It bearly breaks the poverty level. VA hospitals across the country are being shut down. Services are being cut back. The majority of doctors in these hospitals are from other countries. Many of whom's english is so poor they can hardly communicate with their patients.
I won't even begin about education benifits. Or the lack thereof.
No, I wouldn't encourage a young man or woman to enter the military today. There's simply no future in it.

Is It Saturday Already?

Where did the week go? Is it just me or does time seem to be moving along at a faster pace these days? I was actually late for picking Zach up today. I have never been late for anything in my life! Honest. Never. For some reason I got distracted and didn't notice the time. Amanda called me at around 4:40 and said "Where are you?" I nonchalantly replied "At home." She said "At home!?" It was about that time that I noticed the time. "Oh crap!", I yelped. I was suppose to be in Enterprise to get Zach at 5. Since that's about 30 miles away it was pretty clear I was not going to make it. To make matters worse she and the boys had walked down to the Subway shop to meet me. Since her van is in the shop. I felt like an idiot. To make matters worse I had to drive there and back and be home by 6:30 for Robby to go to work. And if that wasn't enough, on the way back it rained a gully washer. Hail and all. What a day!
I've been having a hard time getting around to blogging lately. It seems like I no more than get one thing done than something else comes up. If I sit down to blog, someone will either call wanting something. Or someone will come by. Of course having two blogs probably doesn't help either. That's double the number of blogs to visit. Some days it seems like I run out of things to say before I even get started. Maybe my brain is drying up. Now if my butt would just follow suit. Well at least my thighs.
I'm working on getting around to everyone's blogs. Ya'll don't give up on me.
Phyllis, if you wlll email me I'll try to help you with your blog.
Later duckies!

Thumping Thursday

I'm baaaaack!
Sorry for just disappearing like that. But what can you do when some jerk decides to screw up your computer. Seems someone thought it amusing to send me an internet hijacker virus. I know a week or so ago, Otto had a similiar problem. Apparently we know some of the same people. I can't help but wonder about the mind of a person who has nothing better to do than go around spreading viruses. How pathetic is that?
Anyway (yep, it's Piggy's favorite word) I'm back. I don't have too much to say right now. Except thanks to all of you who emailed and who stopped by to check on me. It'll take me a few days to get caught up on my blogabout, but know I luz ya, and I'm a commin!

The Name Game

Your name of Wanda gives you a very idealistic but passive outlook on life. You desire culture and all the refinements of life but you are inclined to live in your dreams. Although you would like to do many things, procrastination undermines your accomplishment and success in life. You do not like to create issues and will do anything to avoid a conflict. Making decisions is difficult for you without the support and approval of others. This name gives you a very sensitive nature, making you feel much that you do not understand. Your feelings are easily hurt, at which times you are inclined to withdraw and become uncommunicative. Although you desire the friendship and association of others, you find it difficult to express your thoughts through the spoken word, and others find you hard to get to know. It is much more natural for you to express your deeper thoughts in writing. Inner tension can deplete your physical vitality.

Wow, did my Mother ever name me right! That is me to a T!

What's In Your Name?

Wednesday's Wanderings

You know those days when you have absolutely nothing of value to say? Well I'm having a run of them. I got beans.
I thought if I sat down and started writing it would come to me. That ain't happening either. I still got beans.
I'm okay, the family's okay. The world is in a mess. I used to think I could fix things if I could just be God for one day. I don't think that so much any more. The place is a mess and if God can't or won't straighten it out, there's little hope I could.
Queenie , I hope your feeling better today. I hope whomever screwed with you is haunted by the hounds of hell.
Brenda I hope you found that money that just got right up and walked out of your pocketbook. Money does that to me too. I can't hang onto a dime to save my name.
Sally , I hope your getting over that nasty bronchitis that's been bugging you.
KB , I hope little Taz is doing better. I lit a candle for him and requested special prayers. I know his family must feel so helpless right now.
Otto , I hope your computer is on it's way to being fixed. Damn spammers and viruses should be outlawed!
Joe , send us some of that rain. I love a rainy night.
Everybody else, I hope your all having wonderful days and snuggly nights.
Oh yeah, if you have emailed me at my Yahoo email addy and I haven't answered that's because I lost my password and I can't get in. I usually use the same password for everything but I'd changed them all because of a problem I'd had with people getting into my stuff. Now "I" can't get into my stuff. Figures huh?
Okay, I'm done now. Hope this works for ya'll.

Monday, May 09, 2005


Yep, I'm really saying I'm glad it's Monday.
Zach was here for the weekend. Which of course means there's seldom a dull moment. But this was one of those weekends you remember.
First of all I found out when I went to pick him up, he's not living with his Mother. Seems she and the latest husband have already split. She's living in Enterprise with a roommate. Zach is staying with a couple who live near his school. Of course their not strangers, they've known him all his life and he them. In fact its probably the closest to a normal family life he's ever known. They have two daughters and of course having Zach there is really cool to them. I decided this is a good thing and not to make too much of it. Too bad it's only for a few weeks. He could use a good stable home like theirs.
On the way home we rented movies. When we got here he ask if he could take them over to Alex's watch. Alex is our next door neighbor's little boy. He and Zach love to play together. Normally this is a good thing. But, there was little that was normal this weekend.
Saturday afternoon I'm in the living room with Robby and Andrea watching tv. Kasey's on the computer. I thought Robert was out in the yard with Zach and Alex. My mistake. First off Zach comes in and gets a knife. Not just any knife, but a big honking butcher knife. Kasey tells him he cannot take a knife outside. He has one of his little boy fits, but she stands her ground. So back goes the knife. About 20 minutes later he comes in with a large cup, they want water. In a few seconds they come back for more water. Kasey becomes suspicious, and asks why they need more water. "We're thirsty" they proclaim. Out the door they go. Kasey decides, somethings up, so she sneaks over to the backdoor and peers out. "MOM!" She screams, "They have set the woods on FIRE !" Now you might not believe an old lady can fly, but I literally flew out of my chair. I don't know how Robby, Andrea and I all got through the door at the same time but we must have. There before our eyes are the woods next to our house, ON FIRE ! And here are Zach and Alex carrying big cups of water trying to put it out. I didn't know whether to laugh or cry. Robby runs and grabs the hose, starts to run across the yard. Guess what? The darned hose won't reach! Meanwhile I'm looking everywhere for Robert. Thinking he's up in there trying to put the fire out too. For about five minutes we have a water line going, Robby, is manning the hose, Kasey , Andrea , Zach and Alex are carrying cups, bowls and buckets of water trying to put this fire out. Again if it weren't so scary it would have been hilarious. Well, it was funny, even if it was scary. Finally I realize this isn't working so I give up and dial 911. Now, we live in a little bitty town. It's maybe an 1/8th of a mile from the fire station to my house. It takes the fire trucks for freaking ever to get here. The water brigade is still working furiously, and I am still trying to figure out where Robert is. First the police arrive, then the fire trucks. In a matter of minutes the fire is out. This is when I finally find Robert. He's been back in the den, ASLEEP! ASLEEP, I tell you! It wasn't until the firetrucks arrived that he even knew anything was amiss. MEN!
They of course think this is funny. Which I guess I'd have to agree, I mean you really would have had to have been here to appreciate the humor of the situation. Zach and Alex are scared to death. They think they're going to jail. A thought we did not dispell for a few minutes. Then they were both banished to their respective homes, with promises of dire punishment to be administered. The firemen, stayed and visited a bit (remember this is Podunt, everybody knows everybody). When I came in, Zach had taken a shower and was sitting at the table doing his homework. He was pale and scared. You know he was scared, the boy was doing HOMEWORK on a Saturday afternoon!
Speaking of homework. Have you ever tried to help a fifth grader with their math home work? Let me give you and example...
1. S= 4 1/2

Okay, what the heck is this? I have no clue. I think Andrea finally was able to help Zach figure it out. I know I darn sure couldn't.
At any rate, Zach was grounded for the rest of the weekend. As was Alex.
I'll give you three guesses where I found him this afternoon. Out in the back yard learning to cast a fishing rod, with his Granddad and , yep, none other than pal Alex. So much for being grounded.
See why I say, TIGM?

Philisophical Sunday....

If you voted for Kerry, get out. You are being banished. You've been voted off the island.
Sound ridiculous? Think again.

In Waynesville, North Carolina nine members of a local church had their membership revoked because they voted for John Kerry.
About 20 members of the 400-member East Waynesville Baptist Church voted the nine members out at a recent deacon meeting, which turned into an impromptu business meeting, according to congregants.

I kid you not.

"Chan Chandler, pastor of East Waynesville Baptist, had been exhorting his congregation since October to support his political views or leave, said Selma Morris, a 30-year member of the church.

“He preached a sermon on abortion and homosexuality, then said if anyone there was planning on voting for John Kerry, they should leave.”

[ source]

I'm thinking that God must be sitting on his throne in heaven wondering how did things go so horribly wrong.
The American Taliban has arrived.

The good news is, with this unbelievably stupid and narrow minded act, the good minister and his sheep deacons may have jeopardized their church's tax exempt status. Any organization that enjoys tax exempt status CANNOT engage in political activities. They cannot support any political party.
According to Valerie Thornton, a spokeswoman for the Internal Revenue Service, said while she could not comment on the East Waynesville situation, "in general if a church engages in partisan politics, it could put their tax-exempt status in jeopardy."
I'm guessing when faced with the prospect of having to pay taxes on all the money their church takes in, the good deacons will suddenly have a change of heart. Possibly even a change of leadership. God knows they need one.

Thanks to Edward Pig for the heads up on this story.

Oh a more positive note, HAPPY MOTHER'S DAY to ALL the Mothers out there!

Friday Five

Yeah, yeah, yeah, I know it's late. But late's better than not at all. Right?

With all the bruhaha over religion and politics lately I thought go with something along that line. Submitted for your approval.

1.) Do you believe in God or a higher power?
I am a Christian and I have a strong faith in God. There are times when I am weak and I wonder why so many bad things happen to good people, or why do the evil and rich seem to always be the one's who prosper. But at the end of the day I simply have to believe that it is not meant for me to understand all the workings of our universe. I suppose that's why it's called faith.

2.) Are good and evil just concepts, or real powers in the universe?
I believe that good and evil are very real.

3.) What is your view on forgiveness?
I try to be forgiving, and to understand that we all make mistakes. Sometimes this is not easy. I believe everyone should be given a second chance. But, I am only human and there are people who I cannot forgive for the evil they do.

4.) Do organized religions do more harm than good?
Without question I think organized religion is a pox on the face of humanity.

5.) If you had a day to spend playing God, what would you do?
I'd always thought this would be a wonderful thing. Then I saw the movie Bruce Almighty and I realized being God is a tremoundous responsibility. Everything that you would do would have rippled affects. For instance if I decreed there would be no rich or poor, all would be equal. Then how would you inspire your children to work hard for their future? What would there be to work toward, if you already had all that you needed? If I decreed there would be no sickness and no death, then where would all the people live? Soon we would run out of food. Why would anyone buy a Toyota if they could all have BMW's? Wouldn't that put Toyota out of business?
Maybe my simple human mind cannot grasp the magnitude of changes that would need be made. Therefore I think I'll let God keep his job and I'll just meander along being me.

Tag, your up!

Bright Lights, Big City

Well, we finally made our trip to the big city. We took the sister-in-law's van and she came along for the ride. The day went fairly well. Although we didn't get in any shopping. I must have walked a hundred miles all over that hospital. One place for this, another for that. Then back to the pharmacy for perscriptions. Then to the Admin office to fill out paperwork requesting the hubs records be transfered to Dothan. After all that I still had to drive home.
Before the day was over I paid dealy for that little excursion. Around midnight I felt a cramp start in the calf of my right leg, in a matter of seconds I was in agonizing pain. The cramp was seizing up the entire lower right side of my body. I couldn't stand, I couldn't sit, at one point I was actually screaming in pain. I couldn't even get into the car to go to the hospital. I have had four children and I have never experienced pain such as that. Poor Kasey and Robert were scared to death, they were trying to help me but there was nothing they could do. Finally it began to ease off some and I was able to sit down. I took 3 motrin and two shots of 80proof rum. After about 20 minutes the pain began to subside and I was able to make it to my bed. Where I promply laid down and passed out.
It's now Wednesday (well soon it will be Thursday) and my leg and back are still very sore. I should have known better than to push myself like I did, but darn I hate not being able to get around like I used to. I can remember when I could walk for hours in the mall or on the beach. Now a walk to the corner wears me out. I have been trying to get by using only Aleve and motrin, but I don't know how much longer that is going to work. Clearly there will be no more days of long hours of shopping and driving. Maybe I should just let them take me out to pasture and shoot me (just kidding).
On the bright side, maybe I can start using one of those scooter things for real! They look like lots of fun. I can just see me whizzing around in WallHell, (or the mall) on my shiney red scooter. For once I can run over other peoples kids instead of them running over me! See, there IS a silver lining to every cloud!!

Monday Musings

If I Could be....

This is a great little meme that is going round. Phyllis tagged me, after she was tagged by Mary Lou, who was tagged by Cal, who was tagged by, well heck I don't know who. The problem now is who will I tag, since darn near everyone has been there and done this.

The Rules:

The idea is to pick 5 3 (hey Phyl did 3 so can I) and complete the sentences, then pass this little meme on to 3 more of your blog pals! But no tag backs!

If I could be a scientist…
If I could be a farmer…
If I could be a musician…
If I could be a doctor…
If I could be a painter…
If I could be a gardener…
If I could be a missionary…
If I could be a chef…
If I could be an architect…
If I could be a linguist…
If I could be a psychologist…
If I could be a librarian…
If I could be an athlete…
If I could be a lawyer…
If I could be an inn-keeper…
If I could be a professor…
If I could be a writer…
If I could be a llama-rider…
If I could be a bonnie pirate…
If I could be an astronaut…
If I could be a world famous blogger…
If I could be a justice on any one court in the world…
If I could be married to any current famous political figure…

If I could be a librarian, I'd spend all my time hiding out somewhere in a big comfy chair reading all those great books. This would be my dream job!

If I could be a justice on any one court in the world it would be The Supreme Court here in the USA. I'd do my best to convince the other justices that our job was to interpret the law as the framers of The Constitution intended it. I'd work toward insuring that our most valued freedoms were not sacrificed in the name of some so called war on terrorism. A war which according to the latest reports we're losing, despite the Patriot Act and all the promises made by lying politicians. (oh come on ya'll had to know I couldn't resisit this one!)

If I could be a world famous blogger, I'd blog every day about important issues and try to convince the rest of the world to see things MY way! The truth is I'm just a troubled soul who can't understand why her simplistic political logic/vision can't be embraced by everyone.

If I could be a psychologist, I'd do my best to reach out and help the trouble minds of those who needed me. I'd try to be compassionate and understanding. I'd spend my days sharing my psychoanalytical savvy.

If I could be a missionary , I'd traverse the world teaching people that God is all about love, compassion and generosity of mind, and spirt. That religion is not about judging others, or setting up rules, but about learning to live side by side with our fellow man, in peace.

Yeah I went ahead and did 5.
Now, who to pass this on about Chenoah , from Okey Dokey , Barb, at My Insanity and finally Cassie from CassieB. If one of you lovely ladies has already participated, then let me know and I'll try to think of someone else!

The Next American Dutch Idol
