Congrats for staying with your mom and enjoying the day. I lost my mom when she was only 58 and I was in my 30's. Spend all the time you can with her time goes by way to fast.

MLK - a day ON for community service

In the tradition of the MLK holiday - those who are not 'working' usually plan to donate time to community service in the name of MLK. Of course we also enjoy community activities in his memory. His was a life well deserving of celebration,

Just another day OFF

I chose not to honor a hypcrite that preached morality whilst cheating on his wife.

Four Things About King

King described his affairs as "a form of anxiety reduction." Martin said, "I’m away from home twenty-five to twenty-seven days a month."
Three relationships were more than one-night stands, and Martin grew especially close to one woman. The "relationship, rather than his marriage, increasingly became the emotional centerpiece of King's life, but it did not eliminate the incidental couplings that were a commonplace of King's travels."

So I guess you will not be voting for Newt.

Vote Ron Paul for President 2012!

LOL

A Girl Scout came to my door on the 16th selling cookies. I asked why she was not in school and very innocently she replied that school was closed for her birthday. After having a good laugh, I bought 25 boxes..

Saw people lining up for the parade - but went home and watched the program at Ebenezer and other national festivities with my mommy.

Dmom you did celebrate

(spending time with Mommy) is a celebration in itself. I'm glad you have that opportunity. Saw last week where you said she is doing good in spirit and appears to have lived another day in celebration for a great man (MLK). WOW what a man. Good to here my friend
