Need a good laugh

It just never fails that my koolaid loving friend (but not grape!!) will give you a good belly laugh with her posts
not only does she have a lot to say--she has two blogs.. but she also writes for Dot Moms
so check her out sometime--she is a HOOT!

and since I have not done one of these in a while:
What Your Underwear Says About You

You're a total rebel who doesn't conform to any rules. P.S. - It's a jungle down there!

You're also way too lazy to do your laundry more than a few times a year.

and very fitting today:
You Are 77% American

You're as American as red meat and shooting ranges.
Tough and independent, you think big.
You love everything about the US, wrong or right.
And anyone who criticizes your home better not do it in front of you!

Everyone has a choice

ok, so this STORY today just confounds me.
The Catholic Vatican has said that the DaVinci code movie is full of errors, and has told all Catholics to boycott the movie...saying it offends the Christian faith.
It is a movie.
Movies will always have truths and lies to them.
I think that trying to take away a persons right to see a movie is assinine. What are they afraid of? That their followers will watch the movie and see some truth in it that the Catholic church does not want? That they may fall away from the church? Do they doubt the strength of their members faith?

So on to this Rosie O'Donnell thing
Oh good lord really! They want to control her hair cut??? It is in her contract...she cannot cut her hair! Please..that does not even deserve comment.

So this spanish version of Star Spangled Banner. I don't like it. It isn't right. I support people immigrating to our country, but they need to become legal. I understand what they are trying to show with this May 1 protest, but I object to seeing them going through their protests and waving the Mexico flag. If you want to be in our country, and you want to "become American" and have legal status, then you also need to carry our flag and be "American"

Absentee checking in

So I have been kind of absent lately. A very good FRIEND of mine has gone into the hospital at 30 weeks along in her pregnancy due to Pre-Eclampsia so I have been sewing items for her baby and updating all our message boards to keep everyone posted as to what is going on. I have made her little boy a Rag Quilt out of cute flannels, cloth wipes (she will be Cloth Diapering )
a preemie kimono that fastens at the shoulder for all the tubes NICU babies tend to have.

So through all this, I remembered my oldest daughters experience when she was in the hospital for a brain hemorrhage 3 years ago due to 2 Dural Arterio Venous Malformations aka AVM's. She was in and out several times and received a blanket each time to help her through her scary stay. So I decided that I really needed to make some quilts too. I have chosen 2 organizations to help out. the first one is Afghans for Angels which concentrates on parents who have lost a baby...the blankets are used so moms and dads can hold their very sick little ones, and when they die, the parents have this blanket for a memory.
The second organization is Project Linus They do blankets for all sorts of kids: hospital admissions, camps for kids including those for cancer, abuse, diabetes, and bereavement..crisis centers as well as police and fire departments throughout the city. The main site for Project Linus can help you locate a program near you if you would like to donate too.

so that is what is taking my time lately. that and a harrassing neighbor that I will leave for another day and another post.
