"I can't recall how I heard about it, but I just finished reading David Harris-Gershon's memoir "What Do You Buy the Children of the Terrorist Who Tried to Kill Your Wife?" You may recognize the author if you read Daily Kos,…"
"I bought some fresh green beans a few days back, so last night I googled "chicken green beans recipe" and happened on something phenomenal. I substituted Saigon Stir Fry and a sweet chile dipping sauce for the hoisin and chile garlic…"

"I like the idea of starting with the small stuff-- just how we treat people on a day-to-day basis. But sometimes I want to grab this country by the ears and shake it, because there are so many things we are doing wrong, and yet I hear us being so…"

don't worry about the delete...i have it covered,cindi! i approved the one of you and cutie pie. use that as you like.andevery now and then i ..shh...let it slide! :-) but everyone makes the same mistake. don't worry about it. i just try to keep it so that when folks come to the site and go to the photography section, it's like going to a gallery. so all art photos of family are welcome if the intent was to create art. thanks for your understanding!! i'm so happy you're here and participating so much. LOVE IT! xoxo
hi cindi! i love the pics, but check the guideline again. i'm afraid i can't put up family photos as much as i'd like to. we try to keep the photos as art photos. if you want to put up art photos of the baby, that's great. people do that. but the focus is on the creativity and the art. i realize it's a little different from facebook. i'm happy to put up one for your profile pic though. which one would you like? they are truly wonderful :-) thanks for understanding!
