Teaching our children about basic HUMAN RIGHTS


Tonight, on our way out to dinner we saw a young man standing on the corner with a "No on 8" sign. Around him was a family holding "Yes on 8" signs. We grabbed a quick bite then what else could we do but join him?! By the time we got back o the corner (30 minutes later) there was a crowd of 15 people with big "No on 8" signs and the "yes" folks had head for the hills. HURRAY! Drew bought a couple bags of fresh baked cookies for everyone and they kindly shared the sidewalk and their signs with us. I was thrilled at all of the honks and cheers from passing cars. There were only a handful of ignorant people shouting really hateful words that fortunately the kids didn't catch. It was a pleasure and an honor to share this evening with our boys. I hope they always remember it!

By the way, please vote NO on Prop 8! It's about equality for ALL people. Read the actual text of the proposition and not just the so-called "christian" spin and lies that are being spread through the media. Then decide for yourself.

Change we can believe in


If you are an undecided voter or even a supporter of John McCain, please take two minutes to read this with an open mind. To shut down the other side without even hearing it is negligent, dangerous and just plain stupid, so please take just two minutes and allow yourself to consider Barack Obama for President.

"Change will not come if we wait for some other person or some other time. We are the ones we've been waiting for. We are the change that we seek." - Barack Obama

Barack will create a new American Opportunity Tax Credit to make the first $4,000 of college completely free for most students. In return, eligible students will be required to perform 100 hours of public service a year.

Barack is committed to health care reform that ensures all Americans have high-quality, affordable health care choices. He will ensure that young adults can stay covered under their parents' insurance until age 25, to help reduce costs for young people entering the workforce.

Barack supports doubling federal funding for basic research, expanding broadband access, and making the research and development tax credit permanent so that young people with and without college degrees can thrive in the job market. Barack will invest $150 billion in renewable energy projects to create up to 5 million new jobs, and will create an energy-focused youth jobs program to give more young Americans a good job opportunity.

Barack opposed the war in Iraq from the beginning and has a plan to responsibly end the war. He will renew American diplomacy by reaching out to foreign leaders and will reestablish America’s moral leadership by respecting civil liberties and fighting corruption at home. Barack will continue to lead the global fight against HIV/AIDS, double U.S. funding for foreign aid, and work to end the genocide in Sudan.

Barack believes we cannot improve our government without involving young Americans in the political process. He supports measures that would make it easier for young people to vote, such as Election-Day registration and no-excuse absentee balloting.

Barack has been a leader in the fight to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and minimize the effects of climate change on our planet. He strongly supports a market-based, cap-and-trade approach that will reduce our greenhouse gas emissions 80 percent by 2050.

Thank you for taking the time to read this.


My Favorite Place on Earth


We took the boys to Disneyland just because we wanted to see the Haunted Mansion decorated in the Nightmare Before Christmas theme. It was a beautiful day and the Mansion didn't disappoint, neither did the corn dogs. Oh, how I love Disneyland corn dogs! The boys really enjoyed climbing all over Tom Sawyer's Island, watching the light parade and the Buzz Lightyear ride. The fireworks were incredible but I didn't get any photos. In my book, there is nothing better than a day at Disneyland.
