My intention was to by my 28th birthday research the front runners in the 2008 presidential election. As of today there are 219 people currently trying to get our attention for presidency. That is 47 Democrats, 67 Republicans and 105 other/ independent candidates that have formed exploratory committee’s. Those numbers do not include the canadates that have dropped out.

What an incredible waste of money for the majority of that list.

Inspire Me!

Cincinnati has an enormous amount of events to enjoy. We have two professional teams. We have many semi-pro teams that many people overlook – roller derby to name one. We have fantastic events that everyone can participate in – softball, volleyball, soccer.

Cincinnati also has an incredible art and craft base. I have been attending art and craft shows for the past few weekends and I am amazed at the amount of talent living around me.

I was particularly impressed at the Mason Arts Festival on Sunday. The event had all of the essentials – food, music, face painting. It also had a lot of very unique jewelry, pottery, textile arts and photography. I was impressed by the time spent in the display and setup of the goods being sold. Everything was beautifully done even if it was not my taste.

The Mason show also had a great display of student art starting with elementary school drawings up to high school collage, masks and sculpture. I was again impressed with the creativity and time put in to the pieces.

The Mason show is not one that I will miss in the future.

It was a weekend that left me totally inspired.

Sally Field

It’s hard for me not to like Sally, in my heart she will always be Gidget and the flying nun. I loved her in Steel Magnolias and Murphy’s Romance.

Her recent fumbling incoherent spouting about the war left me a bit puzzled. Her claim was that if the world were run by women there would be no war.

Does she know any women? Her statement may be true if the world was run by one woman, but put more than two women in a room and there will be scrapping.

Sally, please stick to acting where we really, really do like you.

Two of my favorites

I have been blog lazy lately ... mostly because I have been busy everywhere else. Lots to say ... maybe I will post over the weekend.
