on my soapbox

I don't normally do this, but really?
What is wrong with the people in Hollywood - have they lost all their morals????

The Golden Compass" movie is set to premier on December 7, during the Christmas season, and will probably be heavily advertised. This movie is based on a the first book of a trilogy by atheist Philip Pullman. In the final book a boy and girl kill God so they can do as they please. Pullman left little doubt about his intentions when he said in a2003 interview that "My books are about killing God."
The movie is a watered down version of the first book and is designed to be very attractive in the hope unsuspecting parents will take their children to see the movie and that the children will want the books for Christmas. The movie has a well known cast, including Nicole Kidman,Kevin Bacon, and Sam Elliott. It will probably be advertised extensively, so it i s crucial that we get the word out to warn parents to avoid this movie. Please consider a boycott of the movie and the books. Also,pass this information along to everyone you know. This will help to educate parents, so that they will know the agenda of the movie.You can research this for yourself.

I thought you might find the following article from snopes.com interesting: http://www.snopes.com/politics/religion/compass.asp

(I read the snopes article and this is definitely worth passing around. It's very disturbing & I think it is well worth spreading.)Not tired of reading about the movie? Here's MORE DETAILS-

--The movie has been described as "atheism for kids" and is based on the first book of a trilogy entitled "His Dark Materials" that was written by Phillip Pullman. Pullman is a militant atheist and secular humanist who despises C. S.Lewis and the "Chronicles of Narnia". His motivation for writing this trilogy was specifically to counteract Lewis' symbolisms of Christ that are portrayed in the Narnia series.
Clearly, Pullman's main objective is to bash Christianity and promote atheism. Pullman left little doubt about his intentions when he said in a 2003 interview that "my books are about killing God." He has even stated that he wants t o"kill God in the minds of children". It has been said of Pullman that he is "the writer the atheists would be praying for, if atheists prayed."

Please pass this on to everyone you know! Families, (particularly children) are in great danger of this twisted mindset.

Long lost friends

Tina & I go waaayyyy back. To the cradle.

I first spoke to Tina on my 3rd day of Junior high. She was a friend of a friend. While we were talking, she had asked me what my birthday was. June 20th, I replied. "HEY!!She said, That's MY birthday too!" We thought that was neat. Later that day, I went home & was telling my Mom about this new girl I met at school, and how we had the same birthday. Mom asked me what her name was, when I told her, she laughed. She told me that her & Tina's mom were in the same room at the hospital. Tina & I were in the nursery together, our bassinets were right next to each other.

We went all through junior & senior high together. We lost touch after graduation. We both got married very young; hers lasted, mine didn't. She has 4 grown children, I started over at the ripe old age of 38. She lives upstate, not farm country, but very rural.

We recently "found" each other again through Classmates.com. We've been catching up via emails.

I got this in an email from her today.

God's way of saying, "Have a nice day!!"

I just got my 25th High School reunion notice in the mail today.

I hope she's going.

Sick AANND tired

I guess it was to be expected.
I am sick.

I went to bed at 10:30-ish. Woke up at 11:22, 12:12, 1:42, 3:36, 4:54 and then the alarm went off at 6:00.

11:22 was Joe coming home from work.
I had called him & informed him that I was not feeling well & was going to turn in. I like to wait up for him when he works middle shift.
He said he would try not to wake me, but when he got into bed, he gently pat my hip & woke me.

12:12 Will. Decided that he couldn't sleep in his crib. Needed to sleep propped on my shoulder.
I took him back to my bed (shut up. I'm sick, I don't wanna sleep in the chair.)

1:42 Me. Pee & blow my nose.

3:36 Maggie. "Mommy, I had a bad dream, will you lay with me?"

4:54 Maggie squirming around so much that I woke up realized I was still in her bed. Shuffled to the bathroom, blew my nose & went back to my bed.

6:00 Alarm clock. Up and At'em.

Advil Cold & Sinus & strong coffee are my best friends today.

Halloween 2007

I'm waiting for Joe to give me back my camera so I can download the pics, but here's what we have so far.

At daycare, Will was a lion & Mag was Stephanie from Lazytown.

For Trick-orTreating, Maggie was a princess riding a unicorn & Will was Superman.
