well....
« on: April 10, 2007, 11:09:09 AM »
today the young ensign, who happens to be my youngest, takes off for his first cruise.  he's quite excited and proud.  we are happy for him and worried.  i don't know how my mother went through this with 4 of us.  2 for me have been hard.  this caps off the week from hell.  that's ok...good to get all the crap done at once.

just thought i'd take a moment to bit**.  thanks :-)
.....The greatest changes occur in their country without their cooperation. They are not even aware of precisely what has taken place. They suspect it; they have heard of the event by chance. More than that, they are unconcerned with the fortunes of their village, the safety of their streets, the fate of their church and its vestry. They think that such things have nothing to do with them, that they belong to a powerful stranger called “the government.” They enjoy these goods as tenants, without a sense of ownership, and never give a thought to how they might be improved.....
