Sen. Franken's Floor Speech Franken on the Don't Ask Don't Tell Policy a...



He's (more than) good enough... he's (more than) smart enough... and gosh-darn-it, smart people like him! (I wish every Dem was a Franken)

Here's yet another reason that I *heart* Senator Franken: http://bishoff.blogspot.com/2006/02/dad-on-al-franken-show-part-2.html

Missing Chicken?

Missing Chicken 01Missing Chicken 02
A homeless chicken has been frequenting our neighborhood for a few weeks now... we're wondering where she's from. She's a big, gorgeous, red hen with little fear of people up close or barking dogs behind screen doors. She looks very healthy too... perhaps someone is taking care of her? Springfield neighbors, if this is your girl, contact me?

Jesse - Then & Now

Whenever I have work in Portland we stay with our friends the Vella's. I snapped the picture of Jack & Jesse (right) just a few weeks ago. By coincidence, I discovered it was very similar to a picture of Jesse and his oldest son Lawson that I took six years prior.

World Habitat Day


On this day, we reaffirm that adequate shelter is a basic human right, and we focus on the housing conditions of cities and towns around the world. We also use this day to remind the world of its collective responsibility for the future of the human habitat.

On October 5, 2009, please support of World Habitat Day, as we raise our voices and declare that the lack of decent, affordable housing is unacceptable.
