this is a topic that is fairly close to my heart and one that i foolishly thought could not still be in practice. how can america be on the wrong side of this issue?? it boggles my mind. My grandma betty and her family used to be migrant farm laborers. she's told me stories of how she would pick cotton with her mom instead of attending school. they eventually saved enough money and started a business and bought a nice house, but how many other people are not so lucky?? This video is worth a watch and brings to light several good points. its definitely worth watching.

"If you are an American, you must allow all ideas to circulate freely in your community, not merely your own." --Kurt VonnegotThis quote seems pretty relevant to San Angelo lately. With all the protests and counter protests at Planned Parenthood, it seems like our community could stand to hear these words.

I have become a fan of comics since my son has been old enough to start liking certain superheroes. Anything Marvel is good in our book ;) We also watched The Adventures of Tin Tin a couple of weeks ago and we both loved it. While I was watching it I thought to myself, "I wanna be Tin Tin when I grow up." It was a great movie and now I want to buy the comic books. This is the life of a mother of a boy ;) I also stumbled upon a really cool blog: mrhipp.blogspot.com. His illustrations are awesome, I especially like his Avengies illustrations. I'm a sucker for quirky, and his art work won me over.

“There have been about 514 Leap Years since Caesar created it in 45BC. Without the extra day every 4 years, today would be July 28, 2013. Also, the Mayan calendar did not account for leap year…so technically the world should have ended 7 months ago.”
