Who Knew?

I had seen Jon Voight in some movies and on TV over the years, but never really knew much about the man. Wrongly, I lumped him in with most of the rest of Hollywood and assumed he was yet another out of touch liberal. Well, yesterday Mr. Voight not only proved that I was wrong in my assumptions, he gained a new level of respect from me.

If you haven't already, be sure to read his Op Ed piece in the Washington Times. In it, he expresses his fears about an Obama presidency and the inevitable ensuing Socialist policies. I must say, I admire him for taking a bold stand that is sure reap disdain from his Hollywood cohorts. Go Jon!

It's Been Awhile...

Wow! I haven't blogged since last October! That's pretty lame!

I knew it would be a challenge to keep up with this. I'm not going to vow to do better, though, because invariably I will fail...

I think part of the problem is that the topics I'd like to blog about would simply take too much time. For example, the election is a topic that's heavy on my mind. There are a million and one things I would like to get off my chest with regard to the upcoming election -- the prolonged campaign cycle, the horrible choice of candidates, the mindless media coverage, etc., etc. Just thinking about it makes me tired because I know if I started typing out my thoughts, my fingers would cramp up and fall off long before I was anywhere near done. So, I guess for now, I will keep all that to myself. (Of course as we draw nearer to the general election, I may not be able to contain myself.)

I could also blog about gas prices, global warming (or the lack thereof), the pharmaceutical industry, nutrition/health or many other things about which I have strong opinions. Or better yet, I could share photos and anecdotes about things we are doing to share with our far flung friends and family members (that's really what I SHOULD be doing... and maybe I will...) So there are many things I could blog about, I just haven't... for a very long time. Maybe I will be inspired and will manage to find few spare moments to dedicate to blogging on a more regular basis. We shall see...

Hmmm... I've managed to write an entire blog post about not blogging. How about that?!

P.S. I also updated our photo and added a link to Chris' new blog. So, I guess this has been a fairly productive Blogger session after all.
