Ramble On

Things keep happening, bad and good. A bit of the bad; my friend Babalu let me know that Julie Waters has passed on. If you didn't know Julie, you missed something. We've lost a multi-talented gal with a Parker wit and an even sharper eye for nature photography. Very sad.

Santorum has bowed to Romney. I'm not sure if that's good or bad. And the Romneybots start hunting for a Vice:

Thats quite a mix of the good, the bad and the ugly.
And it doesn't matter who you vote for, you'll get a politician.

Heard about Santorum (losing in his own riding and stepping out). Did not hear about Julie Walters and that is mega sad. Have always loved her and her movies.

Really enjoyed the clip about Lewis Hine.

EC- ain't that the truth!

Carrie- Not Julie Walters, silly, Julie Waters.

Lawless- He was remarkable. And entirely uncelebrated.

Step son to Sarah Edwards he may be, but Tristan is engaged and concerned about the right things and I think he'll be great.

Paul- We'll see what happens. Hope he has a lot of nice things to wear, but then a lot of nice things turn bad up there...
