Trace inspired me to take a picture of my favorite thing ...the thing in my yard that makes me the happiest. I had to wait a few days until it was fully in bloom but I LOVE my red bud tree. We almost lost it a few years ago to carpenter ants.... I'm so happy to see it healing!
You gotta love it! Yea - Spring!

Who cares about These songs? Who even knows them???? What a stupid group of songs to pick from....good luck people!
*******follow up - WOW, i was so impressed. I can't stand to Mariah singing---like nails on a chalkboard. But I enjoyed the songs. I REALLY liked Jason Castro....I know, he's not the favorite but David C was NOT good and the judges liked it. Totally off key and mumbled but they liked it???? It baffles. They will watch it back and know they were wrong. Brooke is gone this week....my guess. She was shaking and teary eyed by the end of the song....she knew it wasn't going well.

Nuaghty, Naughty.....Mr. Obama
In 2006, it was discovered that Obama was involved in a suspicious real estate deal with an indicted political fundraiser, Antoin “Tony” Rezko. In 2007, more reports surfaced of deeper and suspicious business and political connections It was reported that just two months after he joined the Senate, Obama purchased $50,000 worth of stock in speculative companies whose major investors were his biggest campaign contributors. One of the companies was a biotech concern that benefited from legislation Obama pushed just two weeks after the senator purchased $5,000 of the company’s shares. Obama was also nabbed conducting campaign business in his Senate office, a violation of federal law.

I have been spending time on political blogs and it's amazing the stupidity of people. People are for Obama because the media tells them they should be or Saturday Night Live or Oprah....whoever will think for them. No one really knows what Obama is about. He is a good speaker but what about who is is??? What he believes???
This was a comment I left recently about the group of advisers that Obama has surrounded himself with:
Let's see, who are Obama's advisers? Oh yea, the Rev. and McPeak- oh great....they sound brilliant (they hate Whites, Jews, Christians and Italians....probably more). Another is Axelrod ...he was a political columnist.....that's all? whoa, what a resume. He became a political strategist after that, an "expert" on web campaigning (i will say, he's good at that but not going to give good advice about anything else....in short, a salesman just like Obama).
Penny Pritzker (a really, really rich Democrat....crazy).....Ms. Moneybags is the chair of the finance committee....no wonder, not only has she contributed a bundle but she and her family were ordered to pay $460 million to avoid being punished for the failure of Superior bank. Boy, this crowd is great so far.
Let's see. A new comer to politics....Goolsbee.... and even fellow democrats say things like: "Goolsbee may be a dandy economist but he is a fool when it comes to dealing with foreign officials" and "They may run a terrific campaign. But governing and managing foreign policy is not the same as campaigning."
He called The Canadian's ambassador to US and told him that Obama was "going to speak out on NAFTA but reassured Wilson that the criticisms would only be campaign rhetoric, and should not be taken at face value."----oops.
Marian Robinson, Barack Obama's mother-in-law, has emerged as a vital element of the campaign by caring for the Obama children during the long race. Oh yea, and she was finance chair for Barack's Senate campaign. I wonder what church she goes to?
Another Obama adviser, Power, told the BBC that "Obama's plan to withdraw all troops from Iraq within 16 months was subject to change once he took office." - Where did he find these people???
Oh, and Obama's resume on Foreign Policy: Chairman of the Oversight Commitee on NATO for Afganistan! Impressive huh! Ok so he held no meetings and didn’t resign so someone could actually work on the commitee before the Tallaban surge that is coming this spring, but it is on Obama’s resume and is impressive isn’t it?

Hillary is using a heartwarming story on the campaign trail (with background music to enhance the mood) about a young women down in her luck and pregnant. She apparently went to a hospital that would not treat her because she did not have insurance. Tragically the baby and mother both died. It is a sad story and she likes to tell it at every campaign stop to prove we need universal healthcare. Unfortunately, like many stories she tells, it is not true. The hospital has even asked for Hillary to STOP telling the story , the woman DID have insurance....
