What to talk about now??

Hmmm...I am sure everyone has noticed that I have not posted much since the Election, if at all. I guess after being caught up in the fever of the Election season, I am at a loss of what to talk about that would be interesting to everyone. My life is pretty basic. I homeschool, I work, and I live....

For now, I am going to post what I find interesting. Rant when I need to....muse when I should....

I am also going to pay more attention to my other blog, A North Country Homeschool Adventure. It's a homeschooling blog that was supposed to follow our adventures in homeschooling, but unfortuneatly, that went by the wayside too. I am sure that anyone that visits it thinks we don't do anything during our homeschool day, but I assure you we do....I just haven't had the time to post it.

So, if you don't find me here, you will find me there.

I voted!!


I voted Working Families for all my candidates except for Obama / Biden. Call me superstitious, but I wasn't taking any chances.
I was voter number 357 at the Felts Mills Fire Hall and when I asked the elections worker there if they had a larger than normal turn out, she said they had been steady all day and that this is more than what she has seen in the past.
Well all...I am off to the Italian American Club to (hopefully) celebrate an Obama / Biden, Aubertine and my other candidates victory!!

Doing my part on Public Square






I started out with a sign for Aubertine, then I thought, "What the hell!?" and whipped out my Obama sign. Since I was across the street from the Dem HQ's I ran across and got an Addie Jenne Russell and a Mike Oot sign. I guess I covered it for our party today.
In my hour and a half on Public Square, I got a lot of thumbs up, quite a few "Go Obama"'s, amd only a few thumbs downs and two "Obama sucks". It was pretty positive and civil, except maybe the bird that got flipped at me.....a thumbs down would have sufficed.


If you wish to help with local campaigns today...

After playing a little bit of phone tag, starting with Ted at Danger Democrat, I have some phone number for our local campaigns.



According to Emmett at the Aubertine campaign, they are looking for people to do some visibility for Aubertine, such as putting out signs and standing at intersections with signs. Aubertine campaign headquarters are behind the Marcy Building in Watertown and the phone number there is 788-4024.



The Addie Jenne Russell campaign is looking for people to canvass and phone bank. Their headquarters are at 95 Public Square, Suite 206 in Watertown and the number there is 777-4900.



I have no Watertown area address for the Mike Oot campaign, but their number is 315-420-6776, if you want to call and see what that campaign needs.



Take care all!!! The kids and I are off soon to help with the local campaigns and maybe I can do some visibility for Obama while I am at it!!

It's Election Day!!! Get Out and Vote!!

Here in NY, the polls opened at 6am and will be open until 9pm. This is an important election and as Americans, we should use our voices through our votes.

Remember.....537 voters decided the 2000 Election. If you think your vote doesn't mean anything, it does!!

One More Day to Go!!!!!

Obama Yes We Can Pictures, Images and Photos

For some reason, with a day to go until Election Day, I am thinking of the song "Hands" by Jewel. I guess it is the message of one person making a difference. That one person can be Barack Obama, or that one person could be you or I when we go to vote.

Hands-Jewel

If I could tell the world just one thing
It would be that we're all OK
And not to worry 'cause worry is wasteful
And useless in times like these
I won't be made useless
I won't be idle with despair
I will gather myself around my faith
For light does the darkness most fear

My hands are small, I know
But they're not yours, they are my own
But they're not yours, they are my own
And I am never broken

Poverty stole your golden shoes
But it didn't steal your laughter
And heartache came to visit me
But I knew it wasn't ever after

We'll fight, not out of spite
For someone must stand up for what's right
'Cause where there's a man who has no voice
There ours shall go singing

My hands are small I know
But they're not yours, they are my own
But they're not yours, they are my own
And I am never broken

In the end only kindness matters
In the end only kindness matters

I will get down on my knees, and I will pray
I will get down on my knees, and I will pray
I will get down on my knees, and I will pray

My hands are small I know
But they're not yours, they are my own
But they're not yours, they are my own
And I am never broken

My hands are small I know
But they're not yours, they are my own
But they're not yours, they are my own
And I am never broken
We are never broken

We are God's eyes
God's hands
God's mind
We are God's eyes
God's hands
God's heart
We are God's eyes
God's hands
God's eyes
We are God's hands
We are God's hands

COMMUNIST!!!

That was the name I was called no more than a half hour ago as I was posting an Obama / Biden sign in on Route 342 in Black River.

That's one I haven't been called before.....
