Thanks so much for the link to the singing Venice Gondoliers.

I needed that smile this morning...

Batten down the hatches for the rough weather headed your way. Take care!

I'm counting on the American voters to come to their collective senses & do the right thing. That being to not vote for McCain & Palin. Dee

Wolf has one thing wrong: The last true election was held in 2000 when Gore won and Daddy Bush's Supreme's overturned the people's decision. There has not been a real election since.
