Hello out there,
First the news:
I had two operations within 6 weeks and almost died twice. Obviously news of my actual death was premature. I actually went on a cruise to Europe (Italy, Monaco and Greece). Doing well and in the process I lost 40 pounds. If anyone finds them--you can keep them.
My newest novel "The Trashy Gourmet" is scheduled for publication in June of 2012 and another book, a Virginia Davies novel, "Dangerous Threads" is coming out in the fall of 2012. This last one involves a quilt.
Now for the comments:
I know some of you may not agree with me and that's fine. That's what makes America great, we can all have and share our opinions freely.
My tirade today is about the governor of our state (TEXAS) and his bid to be the next President of the US. This guy (Mr. Perry) does NOT believe in global warming. I would agree with him if he said man was not the only contributor-that nature has a big part in it as well. BUT he said he doesn't buy global warming and that man has anything to do with it.
Next he asked for a got a law (overturned by a federal court) that made sonograms of fetuses be shown to women prior to an abortion. Whether you agree with abortion or not, this is cruel and just because he doesn't like it he has no right to hurt pregnant women.
Next he disagrees with science at the earth is over 4 billion years old. He's more inclined to believe untrained bible thumpers that it is only 4,000 to 6,000 years old.
He also disagrees with science about evolution and goes for the myth that the earth and man was made in 7 days.
This is a man who's running for President? He's sucking up to the Re[publican extreme right and evangelical christians and leaving the rest of the world out. He will NOT get my vote and I'll push for him NOT to get a lot of others. There are better candidates with business and government experience than him. A lot of Texans think he's operating on tortilla short of a taco. This is they guy who suggested Texas drop out of the Union, now he wants to be president?????
