Whenever you find yourself on the side of the majority, it's time to pause and reflect.

It is not what a man knows, but what he thinks of in time.

Artful Sunday spent creating Comfort Dolls

Ginger Quinn is working on a great project. This is part of a larger movement "The Price of Stones Nyaka AIDS Orphan Project ". This project is funded by Twesigye Jackson Kaguri for children orphaned by AIDs.

We all got together at Suzanne's house and created about 14 dolls (pictures will follow).

Dolls should be a maximum of 12" tall and lightweight. Mail your doll with a monetary donation (tax deductible) to

Fly the Flag

I signed up to fly the flag on a facebook group for veterans day, but I fly a flag everyday. When my oldest grandson went to pre-school and learned the pledge of allegience, he came home and wanted to practice. We had to hold up a hankie for him, and I said that I was going to go and buy this kid a flag to pledge to!
He is now 24 and I hope that he remembers pledging to the flag at Nana's house to a real flag. I still have it and put it outside yesterday for veterans day. The rest of the year it resides in my studio where I can see it everyday.

Trust that still small voice that says, "This might work and I'll try it" Diane Mariechild

Subject: Tell Congress: Don't cave to Sarah Palin. Stand up for NPR

Dear Friend, National Public Radio recently fired Juan Williams after he appeared on Bill O'Reilly's show on FOX News and made some controversial remarks. Now, Sarah Palin and other professional right-wing demagogues are exploiting this issue as an excuse to push Congress to defund NPR, which is something conservatives have wanted for decades. Whatever you think about the Juan Williams controversy, we cannot allow the right wing to dictate public policy by throwing a fit. And we cannot allow Congress to lie down when confronted with hypocritical, fake outrage from the Right. Join me in telling Congress: Don't cave to Sarah Palin. Stand up for NPR! It's really easy to do so at the link below. http://act.credoaction.com/campaign/stand_up_for_npr/?r_by=11984-2796343-Pg_VoJx&rc=paste1
