free speech war protest

This morning I was also excited by these photos I saw at this site for free speech war protest. http://www.freewayblogger.com/ All these photos are from there. I was really proud of my city-mates, as these two are from Sacramento.

the ACLU is pleasing me

Switched to the new Blogger today. Hope everything’s glitchless. I was delighted to hear this morning about the ACLU trying to make it easier for men in California to take their wife’s last name, hyphenate, or name-meld. As things are now, it costs $300 for a man and $50 – $80 for a woman. http://www.aclu-sc.org/News/Releases/2006/102248/… Read More »

the whole world is your own

Today I got through to unemployment, and the worker and I communicated well–learning to understand his thick accent was a pleasure. I have a benefit, and it will almost pay rent, which is helpful. I spoke with the new mechanic, and he says something needs to be fixed that will cost $1000, but it’s not… Read More »

I have fallen in love with mankind

Today I tried to get through to unemployment all day. It wasn’t the best. I edited some music I had transcribed, and I was happy to find some mistakes to fix. I picked up a freecycle photo album that I was disappointed to see only has five pages. Freecycle’s a gamble, and I’m not a… Read More »

mercury calculation

Yeah, I know the smart thing would be vegetarianism, but this seems helpful if you’re going to eat fish. We used to it figure out if Erik could eat tuna fish and salmon in the same week (yes). http://www.gotmercury.org/

don’t overwhelm people

Today I drove the truck myself for the first time since we jumped it and got it running again. It’s a little rough going into second gear but otherwise just fine. I drove myself to choir practice today. My truck is like an old friend. I like the vantage point a foot or two higher… Read More »

moving materials from one place to another

Today I made CDs for three friends and worked in the garden with Erik and my friend P. We transplanted some groundcover from one side of the Shiva mound to another. I dug holes–Erik dug up groundcover–and P watered and planted. It was fun even though it was cold out with a cold wind. The… Read More »

quiet day at home

This morning we took a long walk. Then we gave Kitty his flea killing treatment. In the evening, I’ve been making a tape for my dear MM in Florida. She recently got her driver’s license, and her car doesn’t have a CD player, so she requested tapes specifically. It’s fun thinking of what she would… Read More »
