This is great.  Videos, pix, writing.  All of it.  (AND I like the theme he picked.)



These are cool.

Varb For Me

This is Keith Olbermann’s speech last night on Bush’s track record. It is amazing how huge a flip-flopper this “president” is.


p.s. Blogging during school lunch! YIKES! I think I am an internet & poltics addict.

No dates yet, but at least a site where we will give details of the mission to deliver building supplies and appliances to Jackson County, Mississippi.


Look! I’m famous on someone else’s blog too!! Super-kewl!

I got really sick last night and had trouble sleeping. Because I am not used to having pain during the night, I was convinced I was going to die.  (Just a little convinced.)

I woke up with a lot of pain, and my brother called the doctor. That was at 8:00. I went in to see a doctor and had an exam and some tests, and by 10:00 AM I knew what was wrong and I knew how to treat it, so I went home and went to sleep.

I have a friend who has cancer but no insurance. He also has pain all in his arm and his shoulder, and he doesn’t know if it is because of the cancer or not. He doesn’t have any medicine for the cancer or for the pain because he has no insurance and no money and no energy to even finish applying for social security. No one is helping him get those things.

The people who don’t want national health care say that it is because they don’t want to have a government program. But the doctor I saw today is an army doctor, and the army paid for my visit. I would much rather have the army tell me which doctor to see, but still know what is wrong and be able to get the medicine. That is much better than not knowing and being in pain and dying of cancer.

This is what I wrote a few weeks ago about Hurricane Katrina.


Stay tuned to this blog for more info about the donations collection for furniture, appliances, and building materials. Trip will be early February. The truck will be going from Little Elm, TX to Dallas, then Austin, then San Antonio, and finally to Jackson County Mississippi. This is the full list of what Jackson County is asking for:

Here is a list of the items we most need in Jackson County. This list came from our survey assessments and from people on the ground that have been working in the storm surge areas for the past 16 months.
  1. Sheet rock
  2. Roofing shingles and felt
  3. 2 x 4 studs
  4. Refrigerators
  5. stove, gas or electric
  6. washers
  7. dryers
  8. Furniture, Chairs and/or couches for living rooms
  9. Microwave ovens
  10. Standard size doors (Inside)
  11. Tennis shoes for children and youth
  12. Queen/double size matresses
  13. Funds to purchase:
    • Groceries for senior citizens and families that have both or if there is only one parent on disability.
    • Turn on electricity in rental units, (costs between $90 – $140 per household) landlords require a down payment before a rentor can move into the property.
    • Medications for senior citizens on fixed incomes and families with parents that have both or if there is only one parent on disability.
The Jackson County Community Services Coalition is a 501 (c) 3 non-profit and we can purchase any of the above items locally and distribute to those in need if individuals or groups want to send financial support instead of paying the freight charges to the Mississippi Gulf Coast. Whatever you may decide, thank you for your support and help. For those considering on supporting these efforts for your information the Community Coalition has an independent audit completed yearly by a CPA.
