I'm Pro Life and I VOTE

Check out this website for voting information if you are pro-life and live in Florida:


I just stumbled on to it today, and it's got information about judges on there too, as well as being well organized.  You can just click on your county and get a simple list of endorsements.  

AMENDMENT 6 (no public funding of abortions)
AMENDMENT 1 (against Obamacare health care services)
and AMENDMENT 8 (religious freedom clarified)

Also of course there are the National Right to Life and Florida Right to Life websites.

Here is an excerpt from the "Pinellas County Right to Life" October, 2012 newsletter, which contains voting recommendations, but the smaller races are just for Pinellas County.

The Last of the Red Roses

N is really going to town on the yard.  He has ripped out the 2 red rose bushes in front and re-dug the flower bed and is planning to put 6 pink shrub rose bushes there --- I am hoping he'll get the David Austin even though they are just the bare root and would not even be shipped to us until Feb or March, and then take awhile to grow.  I think it would be worth the wait, but we'll see.  N is not noted for waiting --- ha!

anyway, these were the last roses from the poor little despised red rose bushes....  they were sitting on the kitchen table and the last rays of the evening sun were backlighting them, and they looked so pretty and sad that I got my camera out and took these pix  :)

100 Things #6: Two Dragons

And my List of 100 Things continues with two dragons which I inherited from my mother.  A white porcelain dragon which she bought many years ago:

And a multi-colored dragon which she hand-built herself out of clay, back when she was doing ceramics:
Isn't he cute?  Some of the "jewels" he is hoarding came from my own stash of "junk treasure" which I donated to the cause :)
