Civics 103 A Journey Through the Justice System

If you live in or around Greensboro, I hope you will consider signing up for and attending the five sessions of Civics 103. The League of Women Voters and co-sponsors are providing this minicourse free of charge. We have many great guest speakers and the justice system is something everyone should know something about.

Y'all come as many people thing we say.

For more info check out this web site.

Take Action

The world is full of problems, starvation in Niger, genocide in Darfur, refugees from the Central Highlands in Cambodian camps, potential drilling in the Artic Wildlife Refuge. I urge you to write the President, your US House member and your US Senators and tell them what you think, what you know, and make a suggestion or two about what they can do. Hopefully our actions can and should be peaceful, but exert some pressure where needed. Do stay informed and let you views be known.

Writing letters is pretty easy if you are on a computer and you have to be to read this. Just go to www.house.gov or www.senate.gov or www.whitehouse.gov. Remember all of these are .gov, not something else.

Class Reunion Pueblo Central High School 1956

Several of us from the class of 1956 are looking for our lost classmates. Lost classmates are those for whom we do not have a current address. We are first looking in the cities or near the cities where we had an address for an individual at one time. After that we are branching out. If you happen upon this blog and know one of our classmates, please refer them to our class website. The website contains two email addresses whereby a class member may make his or her whereabouts known. The 50th reunion is September 9, 2006. Details will be mailed and also posted on the web site.

Goofing around with pictures

I needed to make a card for my grandson so I made this for the front of the card. First, I "stitched" photos together to get the background. Then I cut the Dalmatian out of a photo my granddaughter took with my camera. I put the dog in front of the buildings and then I just kept putting him there. Each dog was on a separate layer so I could move them until I liked them.

I know I should have fixed a certain aspect of this photo. It will be obvious to people who look and the rest can forget the comment.

The dogs of Prague are very well behaved. Most of them are not on leashes, they stay right beside their masters/mistresses and walk calmly. In front of the grocery store, you can spot patient poodles waiting for their owners. Pretty neat how they are so well behaved. I didn't see any contankerous Corgis though.
