Kansas is Scary

Okay, I forgot about Fred Phelps. Florida is scary it's true but Kansas is called home by Fred Phelps who do you label these people? Nuts doesn't really cover it. Evil, hatemongers, scary, subspecies. There doesn't seem to be a word for it. You better believe the Devil knows the bible inside and out and can use it to his advantage. I'm not saying Phelps and his crew are the devil. I'm just saying Gods loves the sinner, not the sin. Phelps hates everyone who isn't in his special church. He isn't Baptist by the way, they made that part up too. So, yes Florida is Scary, but Kansas has our homegrown loonies too.

I have grey hair

I was looking at my hair in the mirror tonight and realized I have grey hair. I've always thought of myself more in the "greying" category. I did not grey prettily like my cousin Kathleen. I got what would be called distinguished temples on a man. So I started coloring it years ago. I went from my own dark dark brown to blonde overnight. That was quite fun. I tried about a hundred shades of red. I streaked, I curled, I crimped and metallic'ed my hair. Honestly it usually ended up looking rather silly but at least it wasn't "greying".
So a couple of months ago I decided to let my hair grow out so I could see what color it is. Not an easy thing to do when you have to make your peace with brown roots and red tips. Eventually it grew enough I was able to cut the color off. I don't know what I think of it. I still have distinguished temples. They're white now instead of silver. The dark brown has enough white mixed in to qualify as grey. I don't like it and want to color it again. Something dramatic like Cruella DeVille. The problem is how much other people seem to like this hair on me. They pull at my curls that showed up with age. They ruffle the white parts and say how beautiful my hair is. Maybe I'm not seeing it right so I spent about 10 whole minutes staring at it in the mirror from all sides. Well, I think I can learn to live with it but it's going to be awfully hard to convince people I'm 29 with all this silver. I will have to start working the prematurely grey angle soon.

Florida is Scary #8

This one is to much for me to even write about. So I'll post the link here and you can read on your own. There are several articles in this section and some of them are gruesome. Florida is not where I'd want to go to raise a family.

You might have to copy and paste that one. I don't think Blogspot links these things.

Playing for Change

I don't know if y'all have heard about this, but if you live in USA I'd be surprised if you have'nt. I've been listening to them for a while now and loving every minute of it. It's a group of non professional singers from all over the planet singing the same song. Somebody does a mix on it and the end result leaves you breathless. Bono did a song with them...not sure how I feel about that. I liked the idea that it was a group of unknowns, but it wasn't my decision to make. Anyway, I don't know if it's legal to post a link or not but here is The first song I heard on here was "lean on me" not normally a fave of mine, but I'll never get tired of it again. I don't think it's possible for anyone to do "bring it on home to me" better than this. Schweeeeeet.
