"Experts" call for end of civilization...

According to this story from Australia, experts are now calling for the end of flushing toilets on World Toilet Day. (Yes, InsainAnarchy, there is a World Toilet Day. Don't tell anniegrin!)

AS the world celebrates World Toilet Day today, sanitation experts have called for the end of the flushing dunny to save water and provide fertilizer for crops.

Leading health advocates have called for the use of "dry" toilets which separate urine from faeces and remove the need to flush.

Mr Sims said a culture where people flushed their loos but disregarded the thousands of litres of wasted drinking water each year was one of sanitation's greatest challenges.

"This 'flush and forget' attitude creates a new problem which we have to revisit," he said.

Personally, I prefer the 'flush and forget' attitude.... Can you believe this... umm... mess? :-D

Early Birthday Present

CopperWolf has night firearms on my birthday (so sad), so he gave me my birthday present early. He made me a saddle stand. Isn't it beautiful??? He said his dad got him the plans, but he did it all himself.
He's going to put a bridle hook on the front so I can hang my bridle on it. :)

Check it out...

So, CopperWolf and I have spent some time straightening out the house. Here is a pic of my degree from SBC. It's finally framed. Here is a shot of the office. Like my new corner desk? :)

Oh, and the towel rack in our bathroom was falling off the wall, so we replaced it with this huge cabinet/shelf thing. Got it from Habitat Restore in Raleigh. Some sanding and a few coats of paint later, and check it out. Doesn't it look great? (By the way, it's not built into the wall. We painted the back walls the same green as the bathroom wall to make it look like it is.)

From the mountains...

Should have posted these pics a while ago, but never took the time
Here are some pics from our mountain trip. Isn't it gorgeous? That's the view from CopperWolf's aunt and uncle's back porch.

Thank you!

Thank you so much for coming to Charlotte before my flight! It was sooooo much fun seeing you all, though it was much too short of a visit. I wonder if the McDonald's has recuperated since we left, you know a big chunk of Harvey clan can be a bit much for the rest of the world, though that bee certainly seemed to want to join us :)

Thank you again! Hope everyone is having a great week! xoxoxox
(ps: Meant to post this yesterday, but the Alligator wouldn't let me)

A Conversation Worth Sharing

Wanted to share a conversation between CopperWolf and I...

The Background: CopperWolf was telling me about how his uncle was saying his horses are more like dogs since he never rides them. He told CopperWolf he could have his saddle, since it wasn't getting used. Well, I wanted to know about the saddle, but CopperWolf didn't know much. He said the saddle probably came with one of the horses as a package deal. Maybe his uncle bought the horse from someone who wasn't planning on ever owning horses again, so they sold their saddle with the horse

So, here's the conversation:

CopperWolf: "The guy who sold the horse didn't have any others. He must have figured there was no reason to own a saddle if he didn't own a horse."
Sque (with look of total disbelief on face): "That may seem logical to you, but I can assure you in my family, an argument like that doesn't make any sense. You can always use a saddle."
CopperWolf: "Yeah, but I think your dad has horse blood in him... just a small amount."
Sque: "You knew horses were in my blood from the beginning."
CopperWolf: "No, I mean real horse blood. I figure he had an accident when he was really little and needed a transfusion. The only blood available to the country doctor was either horse blood or cow blood. Now, aren't you glad they realized the horse would get there quicker?"
Sque (laughing head off): "I can't wait to tell my daddy you think that."
CopperWolf: "Well, it's probably true. You should ask him about it. But he may have been so young he doesn't remember."

CopperWolf is crazy. I know. But I married him anyways. Hope y'all got as much of a laugh as I did out of that.

From Power Line: Look on the Bright Side

One should never say "never" in politics. However, Barack Obama's victory almost certainly means that neither Hillary Clinton nor Al Gore will ever be president of the United States.

From PowerLine

I'd say that's worth celebrating...

The election's over...

I think Frank J from IMAO said it best:

Bad Economy + Extremely Unpopular Republican President + Entire Media in the Tank for Candidate + $700 Million Dollars = Victory for Liberals!

Also, from John Hawkins at RightWingNews, some really good news:

In 2004, George Bush beat John Kerry 51% to 48%.

Today, the Democrats are as fired up as they have ever been, conservatives are completely demoralized, the Republican Party has done an awful job, George Bush is less popular than Nixon after Watergate, McCain was widely disliked by conservatives, and Barack Obama/DNC had a war chest at least 200 million dollars bigger than the McCain campaign/RNC -- and as a result, Obama won 52% to 47%.

In other words, despite the staggering advantages the Democrats had in this election, including a candidate who undoubtedly drew in millions of black voters who wanted to pull the lever for the first black President and millions of other voters gripped by white guilt, it only led to a shift of about 4% of the American public from the Republicans to the Democrats. That's what a "landslide" amounts to, folks -- 1% more of the vote than George Bush received in the 2004 election.

Does this election prove that the country has shifted to the left? No, it proves that with almost every factor in their favor, the Democrats can win big -- but, the same could be said of the GOP.

And now, what I found myself having to be reminded of last night when it became obvious we knew who the president-elect now is:
Our Father, who art in heaven,
hallowed be thy name.
Thy Kingdom come,
thy will be done,
on earth as it is in heaven

Give us this day our daily bread.
And forgive us our trespasses,
as we forgive those who trespass against us.
And lead us not into temptation,
but deliver us from evil.
For thine is the kingdom, the power and the glory, for ever and ever.
And, lastly, congratulations Senator Obama.
