Happy new year

Thought I would share this old photo of fireworks, taken a few years ago. I was planning to take pictures of the fireworks this year, but used the time to be with my loved ones and pay respects to all the people that died in the worst catastrophe to hit our earth in recent time. I hope you and yours are safe, and wish you all the best for 2005. This year I pledge to do more for those that are worse off than me, and to write more in

Its time for another redesign. I was initially tempted to add a little more sassynes with images etc. But I decided to keep it clean and lean ;-) I have removed a lot of javascript features, such as the pop-up window for commens, and I have also added more meta data.

Food for thought: Arrest me

William Rivers Pitt: Arrest me George W. Bush is out of control. I’ll say it again. George W. Bush is out of control. I’m waiting for the black government cars to come squealing up in front of my house, for the thump of leather on my stairs, for the sound of knuckles on my door, for the feel of steel braceleting my wrists, for the smell of urine in some dank Federal holding cell as I listen to questions from men who no longer feel the constricting boundaries of constitutional
