keep pressing on…

****

I know it can be a complete pain in the butt to have to sign in on the site to post a comment, but, just to repeat, because of past, well, difficulties, anonymous comments are no longer accepted here.

Apologies to those who tried to post anonymously today, but please understand it’s all part of the effort to keep out the bigots and nutjobs, ie the Fire/Teabaggers. As I always say, they have lots of other places to play and post their bile – but they won’t post it here.

So, all I ask is that you choose a name when you post – any name – and stick with it. Just let everyone else know who they’re ‘talking’ to.

I know, it all sounds very Big Brother-ish, but WordPress provides a way for blog owners to identify those who use multiple names when they post on their blogs, so if you were blocked after posting bile here before, you’ll still be blocked even if you use a shiny new name. Just letting you know, to save you all that time and effort.

Sorry about this, but it’s the only way of keeping out those eaten up with hate.

See you tomorrow 😉

say hello to mark & denise

Can you pass on a great, big heartfelt “Thank you” to Pres Obama from me and my wife please? You see, it’s our daughters’ book he’s signing in that picture! She actually spoke up and asked if he could sign it, and he was nice enough to oblige :0)

We bought the book a year or two ago to inspire two young daughters of our own, and we quickly took it to her class when told he’d be visiting the school. Yes, we entertained the idea of him signing it, and thought “wouldn’t it be nice!”, but knew it was a long-shot. We especially never thought our little one would take the initiative like she did and ask him in front of everyone haha! So, anyway, we were thrilled and over the moon when everyone told us the news and especially how it came about with a little voice asking at the right time, in a big way.

Everyone was so thrilled as they talked about how gracious President Obama was, and we are still on cloud 9 ourselves after seeing pictures of him interacting with our daughter and her classmates/teachers! It’s an experience our family will never forget, and we plan to have those pictures in that signed book for a long time to come!

Thank you for such a wonderful experience President Obama! We know our daughter will cherish the memory of it the rest of her life.
