God sometimes gives us unexpected gifts. Our gift has been a grandson who enlivens our lives and makes retirement very different than the one we anticipated. He is a special joy. And that's "Casey." In 2006 we fulfilled our dream of living in Italy for a year. It was every bit as wonderful as anticipated. This blog begins in 2005 as we prepared for that experience. Since then we have explored many places together. That's the "Travel." And finally, I am a person of opinions--spiritually, politically, on just about anything and that's the "Other Stuff." Welcome to my blog.

Why Election 2008 Is Different

Frank Rich of the New York Times has written a long but informative opinion piece about what is transpiring this year. He brings up several things I had not read before and which individually are concerning and collectively damning. Although long, I recommend reading through to the end.

It's a great article. I am saying a prayer for Obama's safety every day!

Love the mention of my state (North Carolina) towards the end. I will be dancing in the streets if we can turn it blue!

Annie, a blue North Carolina would be quite wonderful--along with a blue Florida. Wouldn't a blue Arizona be a dream come true--but I'm afraid that one will never happen.

Yes, that is an excellent article! I have bookmarked it. Thanks for the link.

Annie, I will with you if NC goes to Obama!! (And film it and put it on Youtube!)
