Lisa, I am so happy for you and Ashley! :appl:

She will make such a beautiful bride, especially wearing that gorgeously substantial ring. I knew you would design her something fab. ::)

Have fun with the planning!!

Re: Abortion Ban Victory in OK

It doesn't matter what stage of development an embryo or fetus has reached, it is the decision of the human it is attached to and inside of whether or not it may stay.

The government is not the place for morals at all. Morality is a personal issue. And is individual to each person. Laws against murder, etc are for the "public good." Because they are not victimless crimes. And I pretty much only believe that the only type of crimes that should be dealt w...

Re: Found after 70 years, someone's hope.

Thank you for posting this J. I am always struck in reading stories of how the Jewish people (and others) dealt with life under Hitler, of their incredible ingenuity. Think The Hiding Place by Corrie ten Boom.

A very well done, thoughtful, 20 minute expose on a very controversial topic. I'm not posting this to debate it, just to get a different side out that most of this country doesn't hear. Simply a FYI. :read:
