Gay Republicans....

.....are they born that way? Or is it a "top down" influence of their leadership. You decide.

Thanks to Senator Larry Craig for sending me this link. Oh, and if you can't view it on my blog (Wuff) just cut and paste this link into your browser:

Fun with Harry

As most of the free world knows, I'm a hopeless Harry Potter fan. In fact, my recent acquisition of the latest Potter movie, the Order of the Phoenix, has proved a monumental distraction seeing as how I cannot stop watching the kick-ass fight scene between Dumbledore and Voldemort.

And next to the real thing, I enjoy Harry Potter spoofs. This is one, about poor inner city kids unable to attend Hogwarts under the school voucher program, is my all-time favorite:

Then there's the delightful Puppet Pal spoofs. This one - the 'Wizard Swears' skit - is my favorite. EXPECTO PATRONADS!! Good stuff, just watch it:

Of course, if you long for the real thing and haven't seen the movie, here is my favorite scene:

Ralph Feinnes is Lord Voldemort, and I love how the battle scene wordlessly juxtaposed the Dark Lord's raging power against Dumbledore's more mature, controlled form of magic. It was so well-done, and I can hardly bear the thought of waiting almost a year before the release of The Half Blood Prince!

Those special moments...

A few days ago I shot this photo of my daughter sharing a moment with our 17-year-old Shetland pony, Kipper. It's now officially one of my all-time favorite photos and reminds me of why I love raising my children in the country.

This day in age there's so many things to get irritated about. But it's the quiet moments that make us realize the things we have to be happy about.
