  1. If You’re Wondering Where I Stand – Politically

    July 30, 2008 by MyEye

    There’s an election coming up — it’s only a couple of months away.  To me, this feels like one of the most important elections that has occurred in my lifetime.  I’m embarrassed for our country and sad for many of our residents because our priorities seem so skewed.  For example, why would we deplete the limited fossil fuels available to us rather than develop what will be continuous and clean and (ultimately) free fuel?

    I love the huge white turbines, I love the way they swoosh as they capture the wind.  . . . and the sunshine — it drops in every day (at least here in the southwest).  We won’t deplete it by using it — what a terrific concept!

    Last week there was an editorial in our local newspaper decrying the efforts to develop renewable energy when everyone knows that airplanes need jet fuel.  I think that with a little ingenuity and some old-fashioned elbow grease, we can probably develop hybrid airplane engines.  In the meantime, let’s save the fossil fuel for the airplanes and use renewable energy everywhere it can be used.

    On Saturday night the local Barak Obama campaign headquarters will open its doors — I’ll be there.  I hope a lot of my friends will be as well because we have serious work to do. 

    This was an unpaid political message straight from my heart.

  2. Sentimental Journey

    Just for fun . . . if you want to know what song topped the charts on the day you were born (or married, or whatever) this is the place to look.  “Sentimental Journey” was #1 on June 17, 1945, so perhaps that is my guiding music.
