Ho hum..I shall blog sometime, but as it is, I've spent enough time putting photos up, for me to not want to spend more here. :D So if you'd like to see a few recent photos click here and enjoy. Perhaps in time I may even title them so you have an idea who some of them are of..but here's a hint, many of them are cousins, haha.

God Bless, and have a wonderful Lord's day. :)

For those of you who can't even get a friend on chat meet Alice, she's kinda creepy and doesn't converse very well. But come to think of it, that's a lot like ppl in yahoo chat rooms.

As some may have noticed, I added some new blog links. As I didn't ask permission (eh heh), if any of the owners of these blogs would prefer for their blogs not to be listed, feel free to email me at or leave a comment and I'll be happy to remedy the prob.

One of the ladies on LOC put this up today, and I thought it was interesting.

'Being interviewed by the school administration, the eager teaching
prospect said: "Let me see if I've got this right.

You want me to go into that room with all those kids, and fill their
every waking moment with a love for learning. And I'm supposed to
instill a sense of pride in their ethnicity, modify their disruptive
behavior, observe them for signs of abuse and even censor their T-shirt
messages and dress habits.

You want me to wage a war on drugs and sexually transmitted diseases,
check their backpacks for weapons of mass destruction, and raise their
self esteem.

You want me to teach them patriotism, good citizenship, sportsmanship,
fair play, how to register to vote, how to balance a checkbook, and how
to apply for a job.

I am to check their heads for! lice, maintain a safe environment,
recognize signs of anti-social behavior, make sure all students pass the
mandatory state exams, even those who don't come to school regularly or
complete any of their assignments.

Plus, I am to make sure that all of the students with handicaps get an
equal education regardless of the extent of their mental or physical
handicap. And I am to communicate regularly with the parents by letter,
telephone, newsletter and report card.

All of this I am to do with just a piece of chalk, a computer, a few
books, a bulletin board, a big smile AND on a starting salary that
qualifies my family for food stamps!

You want me to do all of this
and yet , you expect me.....

I must say that I'm as pleased as punch at this moment. :) After mailing some stuff at the post office I stopped by HMV to see if I could buy myself the new Coldplay album (X&Y). While I was contemplating the purchase one of the employees came up to me and told me that they had some coupons at the till for it (the deal also came with a free small poster), that they had put out in the newspaper, and she still had some left if I wanted one. :D So not only did I get a great CD, I paid even less for it than I had been willing to do. Sorry, probably not the most interesting topic to ya'll, but if punch can be pleased, I'm pleased like peachy punch. :D


PS. Thus far I highly recommend it. :)

James VI and Andrew Melville stood once more face to face. For a few seconds there was a conflict between the kingly authority of the sovereign and the moral majesty of the patriot. But soon the king yielded himself to Melville. Taking James by the sleeve, and calling him "God's sillie vassal," he proceeded, says McCrie, "to address him in the following strain, perhaps the most singular, in point of freedom, that ever saluted royal ears, or that ever proceeded from the mouth of loyal subject, who would have sprit his blood in defense of the person and honor of his prince:

"Sir," said Melville, "we will always humbly reverence your Majesty in public, but since we have this occasion to be with your Majesty in private, and since you are brought into extreme danger both of your life and crown, and along with you the country and the Church of God are like to go to wreck, for not telling you the truth and bring you faithful counsel, we must discharge our duty or else be traitors, both to Christ and you. Therefore, sir, as divers times before I have told you, so now again I must tell you, there are two kings and two kingdoms in Scotland: there is Christ Jesus the King of the Church, whose subject King James the Sixth is, and of whose kingdom he is not a king, nor a lord, nor a head, but a member... We will yield to you your place, and give you all due obedience; but again I say, you are not the head of the Church; you cannot give us that eternal life which even in this world we seek for, and you cannot deprive us of it. Permit us then freely to meet in the name of Christ, and to attend to the interests of that Church of which you are the chief member. Sir, when you were in your swaddling-clothes, Christ Jesus reigned freely in this land, in spite of all his enemies; his officers and ministers convened for the ruling and the welfare of his Church, which was ever for your welfare, defense, and preservation, when these same enemies were seeking your destruction and cutting off. And now, when there is more than extreme necessity for the continuance of that duty, will you hinder and dishearten Christ's servants, and your most faithful subjects, quarreling them for their convening, when you should rather commend and countenance them as the godly kings and emperors did?" Andrew Melville to James VI in 1596
