Big Smiles

Not sure why these photos were taken, but I was up for it – maybe they were taken because I was smiling…

Apparently WordPress has changed how to attach videos.  The link above will take you to Google video to see a short video of me doing my thing – it was taken on Momma’s still camera, hence the quality.

End the R-Word

31 March 2009

badge_250x270_nodate1Dear friends,
Today, 3-31-09, is a special day that has been set aside to honor those with special needs. There is a movement going around the world to end the use of the R-Word (retard). Today I am inviting you to join this group and, by doing so, take the R-Word pledge. That simply means that you will not use the R-Word, not even about yourself. It also means that you will teach your children to do the same and, hopefully, take a stand when you hear the word used. Please be a part of this historic day by joining, and inviting others to join as well!

Take the opportunity to pledge to end the derogitory use of the r-word.
