lesson learned

ok, sometimes you can learn the best lessons from the "not so smartest" people...

The Ontario Court of Appeal overturned the conviction of Antonio Batista in November, declaring that his "death threat" against a Missassauga city council member, in the form of a sonnet on long-neglected potholes, was more likely literary expression. [Globe & Mail, 11-5-08, National Post, 11-29-08]...as noted from here.

lesson: if you decide to be totally ignorant and write a death threat, make sure you do it artistically.

i have absolutely no idea how i found your blog but i am so glad i did. i just spent 45 diving into your blog. i can't wait to do another 45 minutes. i'm happy to be a follower.
my 5 yr old son also marches right up to the counter at starbucks and placed his own order....i know....i know...some parents will think it's bad that my little man knows starbucks. guess what...if he doesn't like his happy meal toy he will go up and ask for a different one. i'm just happy that he is confident and independent(not too independent...his mama still needs him)
thanks for a great blog!

Like C Maisy said above - I don't know how I found your Blog, either - but am SUCH a fan. I have spent 20 mins in my jammies here (with my daughter in the background "mom, can you get dressed now??). So, I am being taken *against my will* away from your Blog. Rest assured, I am a new follower - and will be back as soon as I can (like when my daughter is napping!). Great Blog. You're SO entertaining!

I agree totally. Why not be artistic? I am completely in love with your blog design. Might I ask where one could find a similiar one? It is amazing!
