Why did I eat and drink so much last night? Good thing Jesus loves the gluttons and winebibbers 'cause that's what I was. A good time was had by all, or as Benji used to say "Bhi craic agus ceol againn." Greenhill cooked champagne shrimp for the main course, Debbie had fixed irresistable hors d'oeuvres, my favorite were the bacon wrapped dates with pecans. I didn't expect to see Tony and Terri because Terri started chemo treatments on Thursday, but they were there. The weather got stormy while we were gone, so we came home to two very nervous puppies, hyperventilating and pacing the floor. They were so glad to see us.

Clay and Bella are both having birthday parties today. I should have got their cards and gifts mailed out sooner than I did, but kids don't seem to mind if they're late. It extends the fun beyond the actual birthday.

The links I posted on the sidebar aren't connecting, so I've got to figure out what I did wrong. Once I get the code right, I'll duplicate it in the word processor then copy and paste everything here.

The link to Father Jake Stops the World is the one I use the most. His review of GC06 was posted shortly after midnight and should be read by all who are concerned about what went wrong this week. I was encouraged by Ed Bacon's summarization on the All Saint's Pasadena site. He's been one of the primary advocates for GLBT rights, and his job has been made more difficult, but in typical EB fashion, this setback fuels his determination. He remains one of my favorite heroes.

Oh good, I see you figured out the extra link sidebar, huh? Hey, now that you've figured that out, you should download Google Earth, a free program that allows you to look ALL over the WORLD! It's the coolest program I've seen in a very long time. Go to:
