Today’s the day!

All the waiting, all the anticipation.  All the weighing of issues.  And now the day is finally here:

Eugene’s birthday!

Oh, yeah – and Election Day.

There are a LOT of issues out there to consider, to weigh carefully, and to leverage in making your decision on candidates and proposals.  The importance of different issues differs not just between individual people, but also counties and states.  Here in Michigan we are in a serious economic crunch.  Unemployment is high, stocks are down.  And there is a general feeling of despair in the air a lot of the time.

So, what issues are important to you?

The Economy?


The war?

How about Healthcare?

I know that out here in Blog-land there are a lot of diverse opinions and politics.  Whatever side of the fence you are on, I want to encourage you to get out and VOTE today!  Democracy only works when the people participate and let their voice be heard.

Let’s get some practice in for the big event:

What is the most important issue to you?

Now, I’m off to celebrate a good friend’s birthday!

Oh, Bama!

Now that the heat is really turning up on the ad campaigns, I thought I would share a few items with you that have been entertaining.   No negative programing here, just a little internet fun.

I don’t care what side of the political line you fall on, this is just plain funny.   My friend Beth passed this little jewel on to me earlier this week, and I thought I would share it with you.  I just love mock music videos!

Also, I wanted to share a great post from a new blog.  For those of you who aren’t familiar with Donald Miller, I highly recommend his books.  I recently read Blue Like Jazz and wrote about it here.

He has a new blog: DonaldMillerIs.com And he kicked it off by sharing his email correspondance with Sen Obama.  You can read all about it here.
