"Those that think it permissible to tell white lies soon grow color blind."

Sooner or later I am going to have to update this and the other blogs .... I was away on a wonderful honeymoon that will most likely be detailed in Wedding Blues. Right now I am going through bills, paying some, holding off on others, and making preparations for the imminent move into my new place with my new husband. I'm actually getting used to saying that... and liking the sound of it. Now if I could just get used to be called Mrs. Sargent ....

More quotes:
"Whenever you commend, add your reasons for doing so; it is this which distinguishes the approbation of a man of sense from the flattery of sycophants and admiration of fools."
--Sir Richard Steele
Today's inspirational quotes:
"If you have built castles in the air, your work need not be lost; that is where they should be. Now put the foundations under them."--Henry David Thoreau

"Quit now, you'll never make it. If you disregard this advice, you'll be halfway there."--David Zucker
You know, my son is really incredible. Sometimes (a lot of times) I wonder why I don't do better by him. Yesterday he was on a camp out with the Young Hoon Summer Camp and they were staying at the Christian Renewal Center in Silverton.
Today's quote: "Don't tell people how to do things. Tell them what to do and let them surprise you with their results."
--George S. Patton
This is an interesting article and I'm not sure what position to take:
This time, the firm line drawn by the pro-life forces--life begins at conception--begins to soften. The simple battle cry--a fertilized egg is a human being--begins to develop a counterpoint. The solid ground under the absolutists is beginning to shake.

This civil strife is over embryonic stem cells. These cells, harvested from 5-day-old fertilized eggs, may offer the best hope--better than adult stem cells--for curing some pretty awful diseases from Alzheimer's to Parkinson's to juvenile diabetes. So the Bush administration must decide whether the government will fund research that uses stem cells from fertility clinic embryos.
........
To condemn stem cell research as an ``industry of death,'' you must begin by opposing in vitro fertilization. The Catholic Church, consistent if nothing else, opposes the creation as well as the destruction of a fertilized egg outside of the womb.
But most Amer…
Today's quote: It turns out that attention is a limited commodity. We can't do two things at once, if one requires attention-- Ellen Goodman

I should come up with more than just random quotes ... but I'm sleepy today. Had a very busy weekend and I have no idea how I am functioning right now. Very slowly, that's for sure. And with lots of typos (thank goodness for spellcheck). I now have a Korean student from Young Hoon Elementary School. It's kinda cool. My son is the official host. I am soo sleepy ... more later.

Another quote: "Making love" is a phrase you rarely hear today, we back away from it and call it "having sex," ... The verbs are important. The difference between 'making' and 'having' is as deep as the chasm that separates 'giving' and 'getting'.
I had another freaky dream. We've been looking for a house/apartment to live in, together, after we are married. I elaborate because one rental company appears to have trouble understanding this concept.

Doors keep getting slammed in our faces or the floor falls out beneath us. We're frustrated or taken by surprise, it gets a little frustrating.

So my dream last night, that still has me unsettled (why would my brother show up to play basketball???) .... was that we were going through our list of possible rental homes. We go to this really nice one. I arrive first with my son in tow. We're greeted by the lady of the house (?) ... who was still in her bathrobe. I look at my watch, it's 9 a.m. on a Saturday. Maybe we're early. I'm not exactly an early riser on the weekend ..... She yells up the stairs to the man I assume is her husband and then goes back to the den area (adjacent to the dining room, a very nice one too) where she picks up the morning paper. There&…
Today's Quote: "There is only one admirable form of the imagination: the imagination that is so intense that it creates a new reality, that it makes things happen."
--Sean O'Faolain

Well, today is the day that I find out if my dress arrives. You can read about that saga in Wedding Blues. Finding a place to live is getting increasingly frustrating.
