An Award and a word from our Sponsor
I came in the other day to find this lovely award from my pal
at http://justabeachkat.blogspot.com/ and all I can say is "thank you so very much Beachkat! I admire strong women and Kat is among the strongest I know.
Kat's friend had wisely given it to her and she was kind enough to share it. I would like to pass it on to a few of my pals, some of long acquaintance, some new...I met Lee through David at http://david-mcmahon.blogspot.com/ .Lee has proven to be a "keeper" in my list. So I want to pass this on to my pal Lee at http://chrysalis.blogspot.com/ and to Kari at Just Livin Large and also to Mima at http://mimad.blogspot.com/ . Go see these folks, they are all simply amazing...and resiliant...and strong.
And now a word from my sponsor:
MAXINE SAYS THIS ABOUT.....
We need to show more sympathy for these people.
They travel miles in the heat.
They risk their lives crossing a border.
They don't get paid enough wages.
They do jobs that others won't do or are afraid to do.
They live in crowded conditions among a people who speak a different language.
They rarely see their families, and they face adversity all day, every day.
I'm not talking about illegal Mexicans;
I'm talking about our troops!
Doesn't it seem strange that many Democrats and Republicans are willing to lavish all kinds of social benefits on illegals, but don't support our troops and their families with sufficient healthcare, rehabilitation facilities, retraining and education when they return.
